10 Weight Loss Mistakes Women Make

Posted August 20th, 2014 @ 5:55am by Chilli Amar



Anyone who's ever tried to lose weight knows it's not as simple as eating less and exercising more. Other factors can play a part in the success of your weight loss.

According to ABC News, here are 10 WEIGHT LOSS MISTAKES WOMEN MAKE:


1. OD'ing on protein: "Protein is important, but if you have too much, the excess gets stored as fat," says Felicia Stoler, RD. "And high-protein shakes and bars tend to be sugary and fatty." Women need about 46 grams a day, per the CDC.

2. Skimping on veggies: Many of us fall short of the recommended 2.5 cups daily, Stoler says. A no-brainer: Work some into every meal, whether it's sliced tomato on your morning toast or spinach on your turkey sandwich.

3. Having just a big glass of juice for breakfast: "Most juice raises blood sugar, so your body produces more insulin. You'll get hungry and overeat later," says Louis Aronne, MD. Get in protein and fiber, such as eggs and whole-grain toast.
