1. Sleep – Making sure you get the 7-8 hours of shut-eye advised by The National Sleep Foundation. Sleep deprivation affects many of our hormonal processes, as well as increasing appetites and decreasing the desire to be active.

2. Every unexpected activity or movement, such as breathing, walking, doing chores around the house or gardening, is included in NEAT, or non-exercise activity thermogenesis. Enhancing NEAT can dramatically balance energy expenditure, preventing the accumulation of additional pounds.

3. Stress: Effective weight loss depends on your ability to control your stress levels. Chronic stress raises cortisol levels, which boost the desire for calorie-dense foods and promote fat deposition, particularly around the abdomen.

4. Our eating habits are influenced by our environment, including meal delivery apps and the easy access to packaged items like cookies and chips in our kitchen. Cleaning up our environment will help us cut back on the number of extra calories we consume.

5. Hormonal balance - Lifestyle illnesses like PCOD and hypothyroidism slow down weight loss. Antidepressants and anxiety medications also have an impact on our hunger and motivation to exercise. The key is hormone balancing, which is achieved with a balanced diet, regular exercise, appropriate stress management, and excellent quality sleep at night.
