If you want to learn how to lose weight and avoid the biggest weight loss mistakes most commonly made, then you have come to the right video. In just the next few minutes, I’m going to share with you the 6 biggest weight loss mistakes that are made that are keeping you fat and preventing you from looking the way you want to, this time around.

It is no secret that losing weight can be quite a struggle for many. This constant battle to drop weight and stick to a diet plan serve only to keep you frustrated and lacking confidence in your ability to stick to something. This doesn’t have to be the case. If you understand the real reasons why you are unable to stay consistent, then you will likely unlock your ability to get this right once and for all.

This starts with not making yourself accountable. I like to think about this on a much deeper level than just saying you are going to do something and then not doing it. If only you are accountable to yourself without considering others, you will likely not hold this pursuit as dear as you could. Instead, think about what your not sticking to the plan could mean for those that find you to be an important part of their life. Will being unhealthy have an impact on your ability to provide for your family for as long as they are going to need you? Quite possibly so. Will failing to care about your own health set the wrong example for your kids who look up to you and everything you do? Likely so. Start realizing that others are watching and all of a sudden your own ability to value what it is you are chasing might skyrocket.

Next is failing to find the eating style that fits your nutritional struggles at the moment. For example, if your main issue is that you mindlessly graze all day and eat at random times and adopt an intermittent fasting approach to fix this, you are likely setting yourself up for failure. Not because intermittent fasting is incapable of producing weight loss but rather in your specific case it is directly opposite of the mannerisms that are most embedded in your approach to eating right now. Instead, you would want to do IF if your issues revolved more on frequent large portion eating.

Continuing on with diet and nutrition, what you drink is just as important as what solid foods you put in your mouth when attempting to lose weight. Failing to drink enough water early in the day is something that I’ve covered before on this channel but is no less important here. Seventy five percent of us walk around in a chronically dehydrated state. The secret to combatting dehydration is to never let yourself get there in the first place. Staying ahead starts with drinking 20-30 ounce of water first thing in the morning.

Weight training must be a cornerstone of any attempt to lose weight and look good. Whether you are in clothes or out of them, what you see in the mirror is going to be your most honest and immediate feedback on how much you have been sticking to your plan of losing weight. No lean muscle gains will be had from simply walking on the treadmill or calling your workout complete after 45 minutes on a stairclimber. Better start weight training if you want to be impressed and satisfied with what you see looking back at you.

Healthy fats are a great thing for a healthy diet, except when it comes to losing weight, and then they must be eaten in moderation. Due to the caloric density of fats vs carbohydrates and proteins, you simply cannot go hog wild eating these if you want to be successful in your attempt to lose weight. This is a common mistake made by people who will argue the health benefits of fats. I’m not arguing with you one bit. I’m just saying, confusing healthy foods for foods that will make you skinny is a common mistake and one that you need to be aware of if losing weight is at the top of your goal list.

Finally, you have to some way make this attempt look different from the last time you attempted to lose weight. The second you slip up trying to lose weight the same exact way that you tried to last time, your mind will be flooded with memories of why you were unable to stay committed and you will likely throw in the towel even faster this time. Change the gym you go to, the time you train or even add in some supplements.

If you are looking for a workout plan that tells you exactly what to do each day in the gym as well as what to eat to get ripped and stay ripped year round, head to http://athleanx.com and get one of our ATHLEAN-X Training Systems. Stop leaving your training to guesswork and chance and start training like an athlete and you will be amazed at what you will be able to accomplish this time.

To each his own but for me I avoid foods that make me fat which is carbs. I dont care weather low glycemic carbs or what carbs. Carbs is the enemy which u say they are not. Unlike you most people dont spent lots of time training. We just dont have time. Carbs are bad unless u have a good metabolism or expend lots of energy. In my 20's I had a physical job and went gym alot. Cardio and resistance training. Still was over weight but felt ok. Now that I'm older(40's)I have an easier job and seldom go to the gym. But now I dont eat carbs but eat plenty of fat and green veggies. Also fast but skipping meals. I Try to eat enough protein to maintain the muscle health. Basically keto life style. It works and I feel fine. Do I miss sugar, bread,potatoes? Yes but if I eat those I gain weight. They are the enemy along with many refined foods loaded with crap and sugar and wheat. If I ate a so called "balanced diet" I would be fat and hungry. But the lifestyle I'm doing keeps my insulin levels down and Craving down. It just takes discipline

I once hated planning, still not used to it, but it works. If you plan and write it down, you are one step further then 90% of everybody else. Not just to transforming the body, just every aspect of life. Write down your goal, put it in your wallet (stomach circumference or fat percentage, or weight you want to be able to lift), look at it 10x a day, have something to work towards to and you will get there.

If You start the diet with negative thoughts "Weight loss is exhausting," "healthy food does not taste good", "how can I do sports after a long day, when I'm so tired?" It does not work this way! You have to start the diet before you talk badly about it. Then you have to show some perseverance and not immediately abort everything if there are no fast results. Good results require time!

One of the biggest mistakes people make. They go on a weight loss regime. They do well, meet their goals. After they meet their goals, they go back to their old eating habits which caused them to gain weight in the first place. You have to stick to your new diet and workout routine permanently. Or your weight loss will be temporary.

I love that advice, I dont think I've heard anyone else say, choose a diet that works for you because if you dont your not going to commit. Everywhere says do this diet this is the best but I think Jeff hits it on the mark here, choose the diet that works with what you have. These diet experts expects everyone to switch from there right hand to there left hand metaphorically speaking but Jeff is saying use your right hand just improve your technique

You are wrong about fats and calories. Calories do not matter. Calories in and calories out is bs. Love the channel but disagree on that point.

Not all calories are equal. 1 calorie of sugar has a different affect than 1 calorie of fat.
