Reasons we don't loose weight

Tuesday, January 06, 2015

I have been doing some reading & It is recommended that you don't over exercise as we release cortisol, a stress hormone & insulin. When we release insulin, the body stores fat.

I read similar a while ago but it was mostly about cortisol. It's recommended to do gentle exercise such as walking & swimming. Long distance at a gentle pace is better than hard out running etc.

Normally every summer I am out on my bike cycling over to the beach & back. It's only 15km, but it's very hilly & hard work. I have done some of the long walks that is suggested, but personally I found it boring. So maybe when I do my bush walks, it's doing it slowly & gently. This summer I have noticed the weight has not been coming off. I have found it incredibly frustrating. Doing my head in about being so over weight

    There is so much information out there about the reasons why we don't lose weight. It's hard to differentiate between fact and fiction. emoticon

    I think everyone is different, and we have to figure out what works better for us individually. When I was younger, I could watch what I eat for a couple of days and drop 5 pounds. Now days, it takes longer to drop that 5 pounds. If I eat too many carbs later in the day even though I have stayed within my calorie range, I show an increase on the scale.

    I think it's great that you are researching different options when trying to reach your goal.
