Losing fat and getting fit can feel frustrating especially when you are expending the energy and not seeing results. Other factors could be at play here and it will be necessary to dig deeper than just taking walks and eating baby carrots to get to the bottom of the problem. Are you in a high stress job or experiencing chronic stress from unfortunate life circumstances? Is your body just not feeling right, lethargic with tendency to illness? What’s going on with your social life and alcohol intake? Could it be possible you are still not eating right for fat loss? Looking at the not so obvious reasons fat has the upper hand will be necessary in order to start the shedding process.
