 5 mistakes we make during exercise that lead to not losing weight

There is no doubt that exercising is one of the best things that you do to serve our body health in general, and to lose weight in particular.

As exercise is effective in weight loss, as it helps to accelerate the burning of fat and calories, in addition to reducing weight gain that no one likes.

The benefits of exercise do not stop there, but it is ideal for sculpting the body and getting rid of the difficult fat accumulated in the

 abdomen and buttocks. Therefore, exercise is necessary to maintain fitness and get rid of excess weight.

However, some people make mistakes during exercise that hinder the process of losing weight or lead to its failure, so what are these mistakes and how can they be avoided?

5 mistakes we make during exercise that lead to not losing weight

The "Seventh Day" website, quoting Time Now News, reported a set of mistakes that some people make while exercising, which can lead to not losing weight.

These errors are the following:

Focus on cardio exercises only: Although cardio exercises are very effective in burning calories and fat from the body, they are not the only exercises that must be followed to achieve high fitness.

Aerobic exercises help increase the heart rate and respiratory rate, and these exercises involve performing repetitive movements that target the large muscles. 

Resistance exercises also help improve fat burning in the long run by increasing muscle mass, as increased muscle mass increases the basal metabolic rate.

Consuming protein in large quantities: Eating protein after exercise contributes to restoring lost muscles, but too much protein will not

 speed up the weight loss process as we think, but the excess protein is stored in the body as fat.

Therefore, it is recommended to eat protein in moderation, based on animal and protein types, and to know the amount to be eaten according to the body mass index, based on a doctor’s advice.

Avoid eating before exercise: Exercising on an empty stomach leads to counterproductive results that hinder the process of losing weight.

 A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that people who exercised burned 20% more fat than participants who ate before exercise.

This is because the body changes fuel sources, and to perform intense physical activities such as long-distance running or lifting

 weights, the body needs to burn stored glycogen or carbohydrates. If the body lacks these stores as a result of fasting and not eating, the excess fat in the body is eliminated.

Another study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that long periods of fasting can lead to a lower basal metabolic rate, which is the rate at which fat is burned at rest.

Lifting weights a lot: This action will not make us get the body we want, so experts advise the need to challenge the muscles and do multiple intense exercises to ensure weight loss.

Inaccuracy in exercise dates: The fluctuations we practice in the exercise dates negatively affect the body's ability to burn calories and fat, and cause it to lose balance in this process as a result of the conflict and instability of exercise dates.

It is preferable to set a fixed date to do the exercises to ensure that the desired result is obtained from these exercises.
