Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off?
This is a simple question with a complicated answer. Researchers know that weight struggles are about more than just willpower. Numerous factors make it difficult to lose weight and keep it off.
Our lifestyles play an important role in weight loss. Fast food is cheap and readily available. Grocery store aisles are filled with nutritionally void, and highly processed foods. More time spent in front of screens at home, at work, at school, and for recreation leaves little time for getting outside and staying active. High levels of stress and poor sleep quality add to the problem. Lastly, a fast-paced lifestyle makes it seem impossible to make healthy changes for many people.
