Top 5 Reasons You Struggle To Keep The Weight Off

14th October 2021

Losing weight AND reaching your body goals is a two step process. You might want to lose weight, but you need to keep it off and that second part can be especially frustrating.


Many people try these CRAZY ‘diets’ and get so excited because they’ve dropped a few pounds. But, these types of diets just aren’t sustainable and when they go back to eating like a normal human, the weight they lost comes right back (and then some).

The good news is that I’ve got all the tips to help you lose weight AND keep it off. This really comes down to avoiding some of the most common mistakes out there when trying to lose weight. 

So here are the top five reasons you may struggle to keep the weight off:

1 – Your nutrition is off

If you’re wondering how to lose weight, exercise is definitely part of it, but nutrition is VITAL. That’s why what you eat is so key to help you both lose weight and keep it off. 

If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you need to get a handle on your nutrition.

Here at TROY’S, we educate you on how to manage your nutrition, to guarantee you lose weight in the right way and keep it off. 

2 – You’re not moving enough

Nutrition is definitely step one when you want to lose weight and keep it off, but exercise is important too. Not only does exercise get you fitter and stronger, but it also causes you to burn more calories, which in turn will help you lose weight. 

Also, when your body is working harder, it starts to want more nutrient dense food to fuel it, instead of junk. Trust me, it’s twenty times easier to say no to that cupcake when you’re in a regular workout routine.

3 – Your diet is too hard

Circling back to what you’re eating, because it really is crucial to losing weight. Even if you know how to lose weight with a crash diet, there’s a difference between that and keeping it off. 

This is because the only way to maintain your results is to keep your calories under control. Now, I’m NOT talking about some crazy restrictive way of eating…quite the opposite, actually! 

The thing is, when you’re doing a crazy hard diet, it feels that way. You crave poor quality food and you’re hungry all the time. It’s just not realistic for you to stay in that state of ‘wanting’.

That’s why, here at TROY’S, we teach you how to eat and drink all the foods and drinks you enjoy and STILL ensure you get the health and fitness results you’re looking for.

4 – You’re starving yourself

If missing breakfast in the morning leaves you totally famished by lunch, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Going into lunch feeling starved probably means you’ll eat too much and too fast. It also means you’ll be more tempted by less nutritious food. Who wants to spend time putting together and cooking a meal when you’re just trying to fill the pit in in your stomach ASAP?!

Listen to your body. You should NOT be hungry all the time. Restricting your eating too much can lead to overeating and bad food choices, so it’s your enemy if you’re trying to lose weight and keep it off. 

5 – You don’t have enough support

I’ve figured out how to lose weight and keep it off, but I’m the same as everyone else, I still get tempted to go for junk food, or skip my workouts. However, one bad meal can lead to another and one missed workout can lead to another. This is why accountability, support and motivation is CRUCIAL!

Our TROY’S community helps with that and is amazing. You’ll get no end of supporters and accountability partners to help you lose weight AND keep it off. 

Plus, at TROY’S, we have no end of measures in place to ensure you turn up to training and continue to eat the way that’s necessary to get your body where you want it!
