However, it’s possible that even after giving it your all, you might not be losing weight. If this is the case, you might be making one of these three mistakes.
You’re consuming too many calories
To determine the success of your intermittent fasting schedule its important to monitor the number of calories you consume. It is helpful to keep a log and keep a check on the number of calories you consume. It is good to know how many calories your body requires to reach the desired weight. Once you have determined the number of calories you are allowed to eat, you need to keep a strict tab on the kind of food you eat. If you end up consuming a lot of calories during the time you are not fasting, the diet will have no actual effect on your body weight.
You are underestimating proportions
If you have been able to keep your calorie intake under check and still struggling to lose the amount of weight you wished you would, the next step is to check your portion sizes. You often miscalculate how much you are actually eating, which amounts to more calories for the day. You have to be extra careful with calorie-rich foods like cheese. Thus, it is important that you calculate and monitor your food habits very closely.
You’re not eating enough
Your body gets used to whatever you throw at it. If you are experiencing a plateau in your weight loss graph, then it may be because you are not eating sufficient calories. Your body will learn to function on the number of calories you provide it with. Therefore, you should reduce your calorie intake slowly and aim for only moderate weight loss. Moreover, you should only cut enough calories to lose half-a-kilogram a week.
