10 Weight Loss Tips Actually Make You Gain Weight

Never eat past 7 p.m

What time you stop eating doesn't affect your weight. Daily calorie intake matters. Instead of a mealtime, set a daily calorie limit. 

do cardio to lose weight

Cardio isn't the best use of time, even when a 30-minute run burns 270 calories. Strength exercise boosts metabolism and calorie burn. 

Weigh yourself regularly

Water retention and bowel movements cause these fluctuations. Though typical, they can discourage you from eating a salad for lunch or working out at 7 p.m.

You don't have to diet if you workout

You can't eat pizza and cookies after a 30- to 60-minute workout. Portion control is crucial since eating more calories than you burn causes weight gain. 

avoid carbs

Instead of saying "no" to all carbs, limit your intake and chose complex carbs like quinoa, barley, whole wheat bread and pasta, and an orange instead of OJ.

Skip meals to save calories

Your body is smart. Not eating stores fat for energy, making weight loss impossible. To burn calories, eat small meals more often instead of missing meals. 

Drink diet soda

Artificial sweeteners are equally as addictive as conventional ones and can trigger sweet cravings. If you want something sweet, eat fruit or drink fruit-infused water.

Eat low-fat

Avocado, olive oil, and almonds "can actually help us to increase our metabolic rate and lose more weight than by eating a low-fat diet," despite the 1990s low-fat diet craze.

Keep one-size-too-small jeans for incentive

That's cruel. Rewarding oneself after losing five or 10 pounds is more motivational. 

Sweat in warm rooms to lose weight

Before and after a sweaty workout like hot yoga or SoulCycle, you'll shed a pound or more. You're shedding water, not fat. Sweating doesn't indicate calorie burn.
