1. You are overeating and don’t know it
I remember years ago living with my brother and sister in law, my sister in law weight almost 200 pounds and she was only 5′ 1″ (very overweight) She consistently struggled with her weight. In her mind, she did not eat much during the day, yet she would have a small breakfast and would nibble and pick at food all day long. She was always unconsciously eating.
Writing down what you eat and drink every day can shed some light on how many calories you consume in a day
So, besides her normal meals, she was adding extra calories by nibbling on food, when she cooked and when she fed her kids, those calories would add up. I told her one day, write down every single thing you eat every day for a week, after just one day she was shocked at how much she was actually eating.
Some people are unconscious eaters, if this is you, try writing down everything you eat every day for a week and you will be amazed at how much extra food you may be eating.
