Weight loss is a constant struggle for many people. Those who try diets are often disappointed. Here are five reasons experts say you might be experiencing weight loss failure.

2. Your Diet Is Difficult to Maintain: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said
most people fail with fad diets because they simply get tired of keeping up with them. Most of the time weight loss is only temporary because people do not permanently change the way they eat.
3. You have Not Included Exercise:
One weight loss failure happens when people think they can lose weight without exercising. Just 10 minutes three times a day can help with weight loss. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommended between 150 and 300 minutes of exercise weekly to lose weight.
4. Food Combinations Do Not Work: The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics said
there is no scientific backing behind any claims that certain food combinations can help people lose weight. Any diet that promises unlimited quantities of certain foods will help you lose weight, or requires rigid menus will be likely to end in failure.
5. Medical Problems:
There are several medical conditions that can cause failure in your weight loss plans. WebMD said that people under stress
have a hard time losing weight because bodies under stress are programmed to be more efficient at storing fat. Stress also leads people to make poor food choices. Certain thyroid conditions, heart disease, sleep problems and hormone imbalances can all lead to problems with weight loss.
