I recently saw a fitness forum post where a woman asked, “Why am I not losing weight?” She’d recently started exercising and eating healthy, but hadn’t seen the number on the scale change. While everyone knows diet and exercise are the two main contributing factors of weight loss, there are other reasons for weight loss as well, and those may be holding you back if you notice you’re not losing weight. Read on to find out what those reasons are, and how the 8-Day Jumpstart can get you on track from the start.
5 Top Reasons You’re Struggling To Lose Weight
There are actually 15 common reasons for weight loss failure, but of those, there are five that seem to be the most commonly neglected, and the easiest fixes. Here’s what they are, and how you can counteract them to overcome weight loss failure.
Are you ready for this? Stress eating isn’t just an expression, it’s actually science. Stress increases the amount of cortisol in our bodies. An increase in the cortisol hormone can increase your appetite and make you crave sugar, high-fat, and salty foods. So when you’re stressed, it’s harder to stick with your diet. Exercise, meditation, yoga, and other stress-relieving activities have been proven to lower cortisol levels.
Lack of Sleep
What does sleep have to do with weight loss? Believe it or not, a lot. Not sleeping enough has been shown to lead to an increased appetite, higher stress levels, lower energy levels, and a disrupted circadian rhythm—all of which can lead to weight gain. So make sure you’re getting your Zzzzzzs.

If you’re not getting enough water, your body may get confused and think you’re hungry. When you’re dehydrated, your brain often sends out hunger signals instead of thirst signals. This can lead to overeating when really, a tall glass of water would have done the trick.
Eating an appropriate number of calories is important, but more importantly, they need to be the right kind of calories. Empty calories can lead to a lack of energy, which can result in less movement and fewer calories expended. On the other hand, fueling your body with proper nutrition (think fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins, among other things) helps it work more efficiently so you have more energy, and effectively burn off the calories you take in.
Not Moving Enough
If you’re currently living the couch potato life, it’s time to get moving. The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion recommends a minimum of 2.5 hours of moderate-intensity exercise (think brisk walking) a week, and muscle-strengthening activities at least two days a week.
If you’re serious about getting on track with your weight loss, make sure you have these five areas dialed in to save yourself from weight loss failure.
