We’re listing a few commonly made mistakes while attempting to lose weight:

Making food a reward – You know that brownie or the blueberry cheese cake that you share with your friend? Well, that is what is killing your attempts. After abstaining from a fat-filled dinner, you tend to think that you have achieved a lot and then go and treat yourself with some other fattening food. No, that is not the way to do it. After a good work out or after a week of healthy eating, you should not treat yourself with food. Instead get a massage done and feel rejuvenated!

Skipping meals  – Skipping meals is one of the worst things that you can do. Skipping meals mean you will get extra hungry and so will tend to eat more when you do eat your next meal. Also when you do not eat, your body releases the calories that were stored and so it backfires! Try and eat small meals throughout the day, six meals per day would be good and a healthy option.
