You’re eliminating entire food groups
If you’re eliminating entire food groups, this may be a sign that you’re eliminating the wrong foods. Some diet plans, like keto, can have you eliminating or limiting lower calorie foods like fruits and vegetables and replacing them with higher calorie food, like oils. This can mean that you’re taking in too many calories and therefore, not losing weight.
Your cheat days are extra indulgent
Some diets have you eating whatever you want during certain days or times of the week. For example, a diet may allow for a cheat day over the weekend where you can eat whatever you want. If that cheat day consists of double or triple the calories you normally eat from high calorie foods like mega-sized burgers and fries, it can sabotage those weight loss efforts.
