Top 4 Reasons Why You Aren’t Losing Fat with Quick Fixes

Have you been struggling for months, or even years, to lose the fat around your midsection with little to no success? Have you tried every trendy fat blasting product on the market in order to get the stomach you want?

Each year, people put themselves through intense and uncomfortable training and dietary programs in the hopes of losing belly fat. When they don’t succeed, they’re left wondering what went wrong.

For the majority of people, there are 4 big reasons why you aren’t losing belly fat. The good news is that they are easy to correct.  


Let’s take a look at the top 4 reasons why you may be sabotaging your progress. Make these quick and easy changes to start seeing the results you want.

  1. You Aren’t Controlling Your Portions

This is extremely important and often overlooked. It’s easy to forget just how many calories a meal can contain. This is especially true if you’ve been eating processed foods that are loaded with extra calories and fillers. The worst culprit is sugary pre-made drinks from your favorite coffee retailers. Some of those drinks have well over 500 calories!

What can I do?

  • Start becoming familiar with proper portion sizes. Click on this link for the USDA website. They provide an excellent guide for portion sizes. As a bonus, the site also contains valuable information in regards to healthy choices and meal timing.
  1. You Aren’t Active Enough

Yes, you went to the gym after work and walked on the treadmill for 45 minutes. What about the hour roundtrip commute to work, 8 hours sitting at your desk, 2 hours watching television, and 7 hours lying down to sleep?

We know that you’re busy but incorporating more movement into your schedule doesn’t have to be a chore. Here are a few great tips to get moving:

  • Get up, take a short walk, and stretch for every hour you’re sitting down.
  • Ride a bike to work.
  • Park further away in the parking lot.
  • Take the stairs, not the elevator.
  • Start doing high intensity interval training at the gym. It saves time and produces better results. Click here for a free H.I.I.T. workout program!

  1. You Aren’t Changing Up Your Workouts

Your body loves it when things don’t change. Why do you get sore after a weight lifting session? Aside from the obvious muscle tears, the soreness is a result of your body adapting to new stimuli. Keep at it and pretty soon, you’ll watch as your muscles get stronger and your body changes. All of this happens in the body’s attempt to adapt and stay the same.

With that said, you MUST change up your workouts. If you’ve been walking every day for 45 minutes, try jogging for 20 minutes. If you’ve been doing three full body workouts a week for months, try using an upper body, lower body split routine. Small changes can equal big results.

  1. You Don’t Wear Weight Loss Clothing

The simplest thing you can do is wear the right clothing. Weight loss clothing has been the subject of many studies recently with incredible results. Don’t settle for just any flimsy weight loss suit, if you want results and reliability, go with the Kutting Weight sauna suit. The Kutting Weight neoprene weight loss suit is tough, durable, and scientifically proven to help you lose weight.

In the most recent study, subjects wearing the sauna suit experienced the following benefits:

  • They burned up to 13% more calories while wearing the neoprene weight loss sauna suit
  • Their EPOC levels (the amount of calories you burn after wearing the sauna suit) were elevated up to 22%
  • They lost a greater amount of weight than those not wearing the sauna suit – How much? By up to 40%! (1, 2)
