Genetic factors and environments

We carry the genes of our grand forefathers that not only affect our eye color, height, hair color and shape of the nose but also affect the body shape and posture. There are some people who are genetically slim and carry no tendency to gain weight. Similarly, there are people who can’t squeeze their cheeks and bellies in just because of their genes which make it hard for them to lose weight. So, this could happen with you too as it is said that sometimes our genes show up in our jeans.

Furthermore, the environments we grow up in from the womb to the workplace have also greater impacts on our weight losing efforts.

Routine meals

Skipping breakfast can also be damaging for your weight losing efforts as it makes you eat more during the day.

While eating a healthy and full of proteins breakfast can keep you fuller for longer and can provide you with enough energy to spend your many hours at work without wanting to eat or getting tired.

Routine Workout

If you’re spending an hour working out a day and skip three next days in a row, that work-out is not going to help. So, if you are finding it hard to lose weight, never dump your routine.

Your willpower

Your attitude towards these efforts also plays a major role. It happens that you spend months of effort to lose weight but doesn’t see any result and you give up. Here your will power comes. Remember that more time it takes for more time it stays.
