02/10Losing weight is never easy

03/10Are you making workout mistakes?
While exercising is important to burn fat and tone up, misguided steps or bad advice can impact weight loss.
Here are some mistakes one definitely should avoid while losing weight:
04/10Mistake #1: Just focussing on the number on the scale
Weight loss is beyond the number which shows up on the scale. It’s the most common mistake people commit.
Make sure you look for changes in factors like energy levels, metabolism, mental wellness, eating habits.
05/10Mistake #2: Not exercising enough, or being too active
Working out is essential. But make sure you time it right.
Too little or too much of physical activity, which doesn’t suit your needs and goals may not show good results.
06/10Mistake #3: Ignoring lifting weights
Weight lifting and resistance training are some of the most effective ways to improve overall body composition.
It must be included in your regime, especially if you aim to lose belly fat and tone your abs.
07/10Not paying attention to pre/post workout diet
Not fueling up your body well before or after a workout may not help you get the best benefits.
Too many carbs, fat or fewer proteins may also impair recovery and rest.
08/10Mistake #5: Not switching workout regimes
Sticking to a specific regime is a rookie mistake.
If you want your weight loss to be successful, experiment and switch your workout regimes.
This keeps the body challenged and won’t bore you out.
09/10Mistake #6: Focussing solely on the workout
Just as you sweat it out at the workout, it’s crucial you stay moving through the day.
Sitting for long hours after working out can be bad. Try and stay active throughout the day.
10/10Mistake #7: Not counting calories
Exercising is beneficial if you burn more calories than you consume.
Overeating calories, despite working out extensively may prove detrimental to weight loss.
