It sounds easy enough to lose body weight. Just try to control your eating and consume lesser calories than you burn. Along with diet restriction exercise is also highly recommended. Though this may help you temporarily in long term, you require goodwill. The regulation of the body system is quite complex and it works to restore body weight by replenishing depleted fat cells. Sometimes, it is found that person who loses weight are inclined to weigh more. Many of the weight loss methods may prove detrimental to the health of persons as well. The majority of these do not show good results so all interventions being utilized to lose weight go wasted.

If you are also not finding success in losing your extra fats, check these, you may either be suffering from these causes.


Restricting food and Dieting leads to short-term weight loss hardly everlasting more than six months before its peak, followed by unalterable regain. When we try to control our eating habits after sometimes we eat more than we used to eat. This is because our body starts craving the food that is prohibited from consuming, it’s human nature. Nonetheless, some people may succeed in controlling their eating habits and losing weight also but it lasts for just a few months. This is because they start eating more at the same pace. This method falls because it requires strong willpower and continuous control over your eating habits.

Weight Loss Supplements

As you probably know, the hypothalamus is the master controller of your entire system and it needs to work properly. A bad mood and daily stress can make your brain not work properly. Most of the people in this situation are eating more because food stimulates their brain and this makes them feel good. If you are in a bad mood you don’t have enough energy to do things like running or fitness exercises, especially when all you can think about is food. Some dietary supplements can help you with this, giving you energy, providing your brain with the nutrients it needs, and increasing your mood to make you stop thinking about food all the time.

Typical brain supplements rely on a high dose of multivitamins or just an herb(s) to artificially give your brain a lift, without providing all the nutrients it needs and supporting the balance of your Hypothalamus. So, when you consider taking a supplement to support your weight loss program, you should ask your nutritionist for a piece of advice.

Ineffective Planning

The only established method to lose weight for a long-term period is by spending more calories than you eat, which is rather accomplished with a blend of dietary changes and augmented physical activity. If you follow a weight loss plan ineffectively and cut out using a particular food group or extremely overeating one kind of food, the assumption behind the plan is possibly flawed. By following such ways, you cannot attain sustainable weight loss. A useful plan for the weight-loss program should not cut out proteins, carbohydrates, or fats, and must include eating a broad range of fresh produce, vegetables, fresh fruits, lean proteins, and whole grains.

Gastric Surgery

This is a surgery to achieve weight loss in those who have severe kinds of obesity. This is not so safe but is the last resort for highly obese people. Weight loss surgery can work, but cannot be considered safe or long-term. Bariatric surgery consists of many problems all affecting health. Also, many people regain weight within a short time after their Bariatric surgery.

Behavioral Aspects of People

This is also one of the reasons behind unsuccessful weight loss. Many people don’t follow strict routines. They are lazy in doing exercises and also tend to eat involuntarily. Thus, they fail to achieve successful weight loss.
