Here's Why It’s So Hard To Lose The Last 5 Lbs

Here's Why It’s So Hard To Lose The Last 5 Lbs

You’ve already lost tons of weight. So why won’t those last 5 lbs. just go away?! 

In this episode I’ll tell you why. I also tell you what you need to do to get rid of that stubborn few pounds. 

Here's a brief primer on calories and weight loss 

First off, we have to talk about calories. Because you can’t talk about weight loss without talking about calories. It does get more complicated than what I get into in this talk, but for all practical purposes, here’s what you need to know. 

Now, if you eat less calories than you expend, your body has to take that extra energy from somewhere. So, it takes that energy from fat and muscle stores, again depending on your training, and results in weight loss.  

Underestimating calories and overestimating exercise 

This next point also plays a huge role in why weight loss can plateau. People tend to overestimate how many calories they burn from exercise by 3 or 4 times ( https://med.news.am/eng/news/11566/people-underestimate-how-much-they-eat-by-up-to-50.html)

This is huge. 

What should you do instead 

Get really detailed about tracking your food, at least for a week or so. 

This will give you an idea of what’s going on. 

Doing this should clearly show you what needs to change to get those last few pounds off for good.
