5 common mistakes we all make when trying to lose weight - Corefit Newcastle

Do you ever feel like you’re doing everything right when it comes to losing weight, but the number on the scale barely budges? You’re not alone. In fact, there are a few common mistakes many of us make without realising it. 

Here are four of them, along with tips on how to correct them.

  1. Starving ourselves – this only leads to binge eating and yo-yo dieting.
  2. Not enough sleep – when we’re tired, our bodies produce more of the hunger hormone ghrelin, making it harder to stick to a healthy diet plan.
  3. Skipping breakfast – research shows that people who eat breakfast are more likely to lose weight and keep it off than those who don’t.
  4. You don’t get enough water – Not only does water flush your system, but drinking a glass or two of water before you eat will help you feel more full and therefore less inclined to consume as many calories.

We hope our 4 tips help you avoid some of the common mistakes made when trying to lose weight.

And if you need a little help getting started, we have just the thing. Sign up for our 4 week kickstart program and let us show you how to lose weight the healthy way. With our help, you can finally achieve your goals and start feeling better about yourself. What are you waiting for?
