  1. Focused only on weight loss: Losing weight does not only mean shedding kilos. Many times, the body sheds inches and it also keeps fluctuating. Doctors believe that weight is influenced by many things including the amount of water your body stores. In the course of a few days, weight can fluctuate due to water retention. Also, if you regularly work out, you may gain muscle mass which will not reflect on the weight scale much.
  2. Not eating the required calories: Losing weight does not mean starving. A calorie deficit is required for weight loss and so you need to burn more calories than consumed. Consume foods that are not very high in calories so that it is easier to shed with exercise.
  3. Not exercising or working out: Exercising is a great contribution to healthy weight loss always. You cannot starve and lose weight without harming yourself. It is best to work out every day to lose muscle mass as well as fat. It also helps you strengthen your metabolism and digestion.
  4. Consuming a low-fat diet: However much it is advertised, low-fat or diet foods are bad for health. They would never help you lose weight, especially when you are in your 30s. Most of these diet foods are packed with unhealthy sugar and oils to enhance their taste. The Centers for Disease Control recommends a 2,000-calorie diet should include less than 12 tablespoons of added sugar every day.
  5. Ignoring protein in diet: Your daily diet should be a balance of all nutrients to gain nourishment. Not eating enough protein can never help you lose weight. Protein helps reduce appetite, makes you feel full for a longer time, protects muscle mass and even increases metabolic rate.
