16. You are addicted to junk food.
According to a study, about 19.9% of people satisfy the criteria for food addiction. Another study shows that people who have this problem use junk food in a similar way as drug addicts use drugs.
17. Your expectations are unrealistic.
Weight loss is a slow process. While it is possible to lose weight fast in the beginning, it will reach a plateau soon, and losing will be more difficult.
Many people have unrealistic expectations of what is achievable with a healthy diet and exercise. Everyone can look like a fitness model or bodybuilder. At some point, your weight is going to reach a healthy set point where your body feels comfortable. Trying to go beyond that may not be worth the effort, and may even be impossible for you.
18. You are too focused on “dieting”.
Studies actually show that people who “diet” gain more weight over time. Enough said. Instead, focus on nourishing your body instead of depriving it, and let weight loss follow as a natural side effect.
