You want to lose weight, so you increase your activity level. Makes sense, right? Of course. No matter what fad diets may tell you, weight loss hinges on expending more energy than you consume. However, too much exercise may not be helping you lose weight. If you've ever upped your activity level to lose a few more pounds but found all those extra squats resulted in squat, you know what we mean.

It's easy to see how you could get discouraged and feel that extra effort isn't working. That's because its not -- anda recent study backs you on this. While going from not exercising to exercising a few times a week showed that study participants burned around 200 calories a day extra compared to those who were sedentary, people who added in additional workouts -- people who exercised above the 'average' amount -- didn't see additional weight loss.

Why?

Your body gets used to the extra effort, and adapts. As a result, it doesn't need to work as hard and will burn fewer calories. If weight-loss is your primary reason for the extra sweat sessions, your hard work is wasted.

What to do?

You've heard it before: you can't out-train a bad diet, so take some of that energy and focus it on nutrition. Commit to educating yourself on proper, sustainable nutrition: not fad diets. Invest in this continued education if you’re at all struggling with what really works, and what doesn’t.

Even if you think you eat clean, if you aren’t seeing the results you want  — the realistic, healthy results you know you are capable of attaining without submitting to a deprivation diet — chances are, there are some essential tweaks you can make. We often experience weight-loss plateaus when we reach the mid to lower end ofour ‘set point’ (our body’s healthy weight range), and this is when small, subtle but powerful changes to diet will make all the difference.

So make a difference. Keep exercising regularly and living an active lifestyle, but also refocus some of your energy on diet education (or re-education). Our Nutrition Guides are a solid place to start!
