4 Reasons Why it's so difficult to lose weight

The hard truths holding you back.


Why is losing weight HARD? Surely it should be simple if; it's about burning more calories than you eat each day. But in practice, it's anything but easy for most people.

Aside from the obvious reasons -- food is delicious, exercise is hard and time is short -- there are many other factors that affect weight loss that many people don't even know they fall victim to.


Weight-loss personal trainers in Sydney


ELITE Health Club are Sydney's leading weight-loss personal trainers and have helped countless clients lose that stubborn weight. From our experience these are 4 common mistakes that can definitely hinder your weight loss progress, but if you go into the year aware of them, you'll avoid common weight-loss pitfalls.


1. You have a short-term mindset!


If you approach weight loss with a short-term attitude, you may not make it anywhere except on the yo-yo diet train. Part of successful, sustainable weight loss is understanding that fad diets, excessive exercise and "detoxes" only last as long as your willpower does.


2. You lack a motivating support system!


A solid support system is key to long-term weight loss. Without it, the journey can feel lonely and intimidating especially if you fall into a trap of eating and drinking for the sake of your social life.


NOTE: If you are lacking motivation or just need someone to keep you accountable, contact ELITE Health Club today and one of our ELITE weight-loss personal trainers in Sydney will provide the motivation and accountability you need to achieve your weight-loss goals.


3. Your sleep, stress and workload are working against you!

Nutrition and exercise are only two components of a healthy lifestyle. Too strong of a focus on nutrition and exercise can cause you to overlook other factors that are just as important: sleep and stress management.


4. You think exercise conquers all!


You'll know this saying: "Abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym." Even if your goals don't include a shredded stomach, the adage is still relevant. You just can't out-exercise a poor diet.


So, with a long-term attitude and approach, with the right support and motivation, with more sleep and less stress, and with focus not just on training but also a calorie deficit - you can achieve weight-loss.
