Eating Too Much Hurting Weight Loss

You're eating too much

This may seem obvious, but unless you are keeping track of your calories each day, you may be eating more than you think. Portion control is one culprit, especially with restaurants providing enough food in one meal to feed several people.

If you're really serious about weight loss, you need to get serious about you're eating portions. Start by keeping a detailed food journal for one week, without changing any of your eating habits. Be as specific as possible, measuring when you can, looking up your calorie and nutrient content and adding up your calories for each day. You'll be surprised how those calories can sneak in when you're not keeping track.

Something else to think about is metabolism, which can drop as you get older if you don't preserve your muscle mass.

Some estimates show that muscle mass declines about 4% each decade from age 25 to 50. If you're still eating the same number of calories as your metabolism drops, your weight may creep up over time. Start exercising and lifting weights now to keep your metabolism in check for achieving weight loss.

Good luck and God bless!
