Different Body Responses
Those litters of sweat you shed during morning and night workouts don’t seem to see any results at all. According to experts, there are minds who are likely to detect “working out” as kind of “stressor”. Meaning, during work out or heavy sweating, the body releases a hormone called cortisol which prevents calories from burning.
Environment and The People You are with
The space you live in and the people you associate with have a huge impact on the way you think. If you are living alone your worst enemy is yourself alone. You have the capability to control everything but when you go out with your friends, that’s another trigger for you to break the plan that you always wanted. People who still live with their family has a lot of triggers, imagine that all the people in your house are feasting and you’re on your late night fast. You will feel deprive and more likely to give in. In this kind of situation make sure that they know all your plan and dieting. Buy your own fridge, fill it with healthy food and never open the kitchen fridge.
You Feel Distracted and Tired
Be careful by how you do your diet, consult your nutritionist or your gym trainer about what food you should be feeding on. You might lose too much weight or the diet plan you are following is not hitting the right nutrition that your body needs. Wrong diet plan can disturb your whole system that might lead to weight gain or unhealthy weight loss. When you deprive yourself with the usual food that you are eating you might feel tired and distracted, sometimes those are initial responses of our body.
In dieting, it takes great discipline and mental willpower to achieve the weight that you always wanted.
Diet is a habitual nourishment. Make it a sure that you consistently do workout and eat healthily. It doesn’t matter how long you will do it.

It all starts in the mind.
