18 Reasons Why You Are Not Losing Weight

13. You are drinking too much alcohol.

Studies on alcohol and weight show mixed results. Moderate drinking seems to be fine, while heavy drinking is linked to weight gain.

14. You are not eating mindfully.

A number of studies have shown that mindful eating can cause significant weight loss and reduce the frequency of binge eating. Mindful eating involves eating with zero distractions, eating slowly, chewing thoroughly, and stopping when you need to stop.

15. You have a medical condition.

There are some medical conditions that can drive weight gain and make it much harder to lose weight such as hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and sleep apnea, among others.

If you think any of this applies to you, then speak to your doctor about your options.

16. You are addicted to junk food.

According to a study, about 19.9% of people satisfy the criteria for food addiction. Another study shows that people who have this problem use junk food in a similar way as drug addicts use drugs.
