5 Things You Should Never Do When Trying to Lose Weight

Losing weight is the biggest battle that many people will face, but it’s also one that those same people may be doing all wrong.

There is a right and wrong way to lose weight, and the long-term results often show who lost weight correctly and who didn’t.

If you try to shed the pounds too quickly or take radical action, you can end up weighing more than you did before as soon as you become set in your old ways once more, or even gravely ill from the experience.

If you are set on dropping a few dress sizes – either for your health or self-image, then here are seven things you should never do, with emphasis on slide five and six in particular!

If you’re trying to lose weight, the worst thing you can do is think that skipping meals and essentially starving your body is the way to do it. While it might help to make you lose a few pounds in the beginning, you will put all of it back on as soon as you begin eating.

Starving yourself and skipping meals is not sustainable and all you’ll feel is hungry. Therefore, you’re more likely to fall off the bandwagon and reach for that cake!
