4 Reasons Why You're Fat

4 reasons why you're fatIn spite of trying hard, you haven't been able to lose weight? Well, it's good that you're trying but may be you're still going somewhere. We list down 4 simple mistakes that make people fat. Read on to find out...

  • You Drink Diet Coke Like it's Water
    A University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill study found that when people swapped their favourite sugary soft drink for the diet variety, they ate more desserts and more bread than people who swapped their go-to beverage for water. Artificial sweeteners may increase your hunger for sweet things, says study author Barry Popkin, Ph.D. So, the next time you go out to eat make sure you stick to drinking water and not coke or other diet drinks.   
  • You Try Too Hard
    Adopting a very rigid diet almost guarantees that your weight-loss efforts will be sabotaged by food cravings, suggests a new study in the journal Appetite. So, cut yourself some slack. Flexible dieters have just as many cravings and give in to them just as often, according to study author Adrian Meule, Dipl.-Psych. The difference is that they are more likely to get back on track quickly.
  • You Stay Awake Until 2 a.m
    A new study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that scant sleep can cause you to overeat fatty foods. When people slept only 4 hours a night for 5 days, they took in nearly 300 calories more than when they slept 9 hours a night. Too little sleep may increase your appetite by short-circuiting your brain's sense of reward. So, make sure you g to bed on time, so that you don't feel like munching on calorie-laden stuff late at night.   

  • You're Too Optimistic
    If you're like most people, who overestimate the number of calories they burn during exercise, this one's for you. According to a study in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness, people thought that a workout could burn about 900 calories when it actually burned just 300. Surprised? So, the next time you think of overeating thinking you can burn all those extra calories in a day, think again! You're only fooling yourself by being too darned optimistic.
