Are you having troubles losing weight? Are you still struggling to shed off some pounds even though you already got rid of the obvious culprits, like fast food, happy hour, etc.? Shockingly, your morning routine may be the reason behind your failure without you knowing it.
Eating a balanced diet and getting a regular workout has always been the most effective ways to achieve a healthier and fitter physique. Unfortunately, there are things that you do during in the morning that blocks your chance to lose the excess pounds. Learn about 6 morning habits that can cause weight gain and get in the way of your goals.
1. Changing in the dark
Studies show that those who changed with some sunlight have a muchlower BMIs than those change in the dark.
2. Not weighing yourself
The weighing scale could easily be considered a mortal enemy when you’re trying to lose weight. While people would rather skip this embarrassing process, checking your weight every day should be part of your morning routine as it will help you keep track of your progress.
3. Skipping breakfast
Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day. The food that you eat in the morning fuels your system, and it will help you feel less hungry and have fewer cravings for the rest of the day.
4. Not making your own bed
Every little movement matters when you’re trying to lose weight. Making your bed in the morning doesn’t only prep your for a good morning exercise, but studies show that this habit helps in getting a good sleep.
Since getting enough sleep is linked to a lower BMI, this simple habit will eventually lead to weight loss.
5. You drink more coffee than water
You probably got tired of hearing that you should drink plenty of water every day to be healthy. However, this is very true as drinking water in the morning helps you get rid of your body toxins.
Coffee had been most people’s go-to drink in the morning. Although there are benefits to drinking the popular beverage, water is always the best option.
6. Hitting the snooze button
Oversleeping doesn’t only make you tired the whole day, but it also leads you to make poor choices, especially when it comes to food.
We’ve already heard before that lack of sleep may cause weight gain. But getting too much sleep is also not a healthy habit. The best thing to do is to get enough sleep, which is seven to nine hours.
