  • Spot reductionweight-loss-spot-reduction

There is no such thing as spot reduction. Fat cannot be reduced from a specific part of a body; it is reduced from the entire body as a result of exercising and dieting. It’s okay If you are not losing fat from your hips but losing fat from other areas of the body, it’s perfectly normal, you will eventually loose fat from your hips if you stick to the exercise and the diet, you just have to be patient. Do not fall into the trap of buying a product which promises spot reduction as advertisers’ abuse this term to sell their exercise-related products. This is one of the most common weight loss mistakes that people make.

This is a big NO! It is not a good idea. if we look at people who make weight loss mistakes, this is one is the most common among people who want to lose weight really fast.  Not only skipping meals will make you tired and weak but it will also make you hungry and crave for fatty foods. Your metabolism will slow down and after a few days you will hit a plateau. It might look like you are losing weight but It’s a short time effect. Sure it’s good for short time results but it is not recommended and it is extremely unhealthy. If you really want to see long term results then you better not skip meals instead I recommend eating more meals than the standard three times a day meal. I will explain this in upcoming days

  • Pushing yourself too hardovertraining

Believe me you will be surprised when I tell you how many people make this weight loss mistake when they start their journey, among other weight loss mistakes this one is extremely common among beginners. Weight loss takes time, some people push themselves too hard and when they don’t get results, they get de-motivated. I suggest going slowly, if you are starting a diet then take it step by step and do not go on a full-on diet. Your body needs to get used to the changes you are making, if you try too hard on the first day, chances are you will give up so take it slowly and don’t jump on it straight away. After a few weeks make your diet plan a bit strict and start doing easy exercises and so on.

So if you are really serious about losing weight then you need to avoid the above mentioned weight loss mistakes
