Why Fat Loss Programs Fail?

Sometimes we complain that our weight do not get reduced in spite of our sincere efforts. Also we say that our weight reduction stops beyond a certain limit. These are the common problems we face when we are on a fat loss program. Here we will discuss why such situations arises and what are the root factors behind them.

Failure in fat loss program doesnÂ’t always mean that we have not put our best efforts in reducing our weight. There may be several other reasons behind the failure. Also many times when we consider it as a failure, a positive result is achieved but with some delay of time.

During the dietary regimen, we undergo a number of experiences. The rate of reduction is hardly ever constant or uniform. It varies from time to time. During the first 2-3 weeks, there is a rapid weight loss; but afterwards the rate of weight reduction slows down. This phase is known as the stagnation phase.

The initial rapid weight loss is due to the phenomenon of diuresis. But after certain amount of water is eliminated from the body, the rate of weight loss becomes extremely slow. During the phase of stagnation, salt and water retention occurs in the body. However after a few days, the process of diuresis commences on its own again and there is further reduction in the weight.

Generally most of the fat persons tend to overeat. They have a voracious appetite. During the dietary regimen, their appetite causes uneasiness and agony for them. Sometimes, psychological factors are responsible for such an appetite. Many a time fat persons violate their dietary regimen to satisfy their hunger.

The age old experience is that people are always over enthusiastic about any activity in the beginning but with the passage of time the enthusiasm cools down. This fact applies to the fat loss program also. Fat persons display great enthusiasm, care and anxiety in the beginning; but gradually their enthusiasm begins to decrease and dieting is relaxed. And consequently the rate of weight loss slows down.

In case of women, accumulation of water in the body 2-3 days prior to menstruation is normal. It is likely that during this period there may not be any weight loss. On the contrary, in some cases, there may be a slight weight gain. Women should always bear this fact in mind.
