When trying to lose weight it can certainly become frustrating when those pounds aren’t shedding. Of course the question is…why? Why aren’t those pounds burning off like the weight loss plan promised? Many diet plans, especially fad diets, prescribe specific foods and sometimes they are just the wrong foods or inappropriate amounts of foods that just won’t work for weight loss. Here are 10 signs that you may just be eating the wrong foods in order to lose weight.
You’re not actually losing weight
The number one sign that you’re probably eating the wrong foods is that the numbers on the scale aren’t going down. According to the National Institute of Health, a safe rate of weight loss is one to two pounds per week. You won’t see any major changes on a daily basis, but that scale should be showing slow progress over time.
Your jeans are still snug
One weight-gain sign I always warn clients about is if their pants are fitting too tight. You can use that same indicator for weight loss. If your clothing is still snug and hasn’t become roomier, then that’s a sign that weight loss in key areas just isn’t happening.
