The biggest enemy to a weight-loss plan?


Truthfully, there are plenty of habits that could be sabotaging your progress — you just may not recognize them. Below are a few surprising reasons your weight-loss goals are stalling.


truthfully /'tr?θf?li/ adv. 诚实地;深信不疑地

recognize /'rek?gna?z/ v. 认出,识别;承认

1. You’re prioritizing exercise over diet.



Many people believe that they can indulge in a few more scoops of ice cream after an intense gym session — a method of thinking that does more harm than good. The truth is, healthy bodies are made in the kitchen. Research shows that diet is slightly more important than exercise when it comes to a healthy weight loss transformation, although both are crucial overall.


prioritize /pra?'?r?ta?z/ vt. 把…区分优先次序

indulge /?n'd?ld?/ v. 满足;纵容

scoop /sku: p/ n. 勺;铲子

intense /?n'tens/ adj. 强烈的;紧张的

transformation /trænsf?'me??(?)n/ n. 转化;转换

crucial /'kru: ?(?)l/ adj. 重要的;决定性的

overall /'??v?r?: l/ adj. 全部的;全体的;adv. 全部地;总的说来

2. You’re not sleeping enough.



Getting proper rest can improve every aspect of your life — including the number on the scale. Research shows that sleep deprivation can lead to weight gain. Rack up Zs to help drop pounds.


proper /'pr?p?/ adj. 适当的;本身的

aspect /'æspekt/ n. 方面;方向

scale /ske?l/ n. 规模;比例

deprivation /depr?'ve??(?)n/ n. 剥夺;损失;免职

3. You’re chained to your desk.



A sedentary workday could be destroying your weight loss goals without you even realizing it. Studies show that sitting for an exorbitant amount of time at work can lead to weight gain. Try prioritizing breaks, scheduling mobile meetings and even going for a longer walk at lunchtime. Bonus: There are huge well-being perks to gain from the activity as well.


sedentary /'sed(?)nt(?)r?/ adj. 久坐的;坐惯的

destroy /d??str??/ v. 破坏;消灭

exorbitant /?g'z?: b?t(?)nt/ adj. 过高的;过分的

4. You have an underlying mental health issue.



Research suggests that mental health conditions like depression can lead to changes in appetite, which can result in weight gain. If you’re feeling more than just a general sadness and it’s a feeling that persists, check in with a medical professional. Other symptoms include a loss of motivation and low energy.


underlying /?nd?'la???/ adj. 潜在的;根本的

5. You’re opting for diet soda.



Diet soda lures you with the promise of being a healthier option, but that’s hardly the case. Research shows that calorie-free, artificially-sweetened drinks may actually contribute to weight gain and increase cravings for real sugar. Opt for water instead.


diet soda /'da??t 's??d?/ 无糖汽水

lure /l(j)??/ v. 诱惑;引诱

craving /'kre?v??/ n. 渴望;热望

opt /?pt/ v. 选择

6. You’re not eating enough.



Slashing calories isn’t always the best way to get healthy, particularly if it means you’re not getting any nutrients at all. The ideal avenue to a healthy weight is to engage in a balanced diet. That means eating plenty of natural fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats.


slash /slæ?/ v. 猛砍;大幅度裁减或削减

7. You’re constantly running on the treadmill.



Or only going to SoulCycle, or only trudging on the elliptical. Variability in your workouts is vital. Make sure to add a strength training component to your fitness routine as well as switch up your type of cardio. Challenging yourself will help you see better results.


constantly /'k?nst(?)ntl?/ adv. 不断地;时常地

routine /ru: 'ti: n/ n. 程序;日常工作

cardio /'kα: d???/ n. 有氧运动

8. You’re underestimating how much you eat at restaurants.



Sure, that salad may seem healthy, but you can’t really know how muchdressing the kitchen slathers on or what kind of preservatives they use for some of the ingredients. Cooking at home saves an average of 250 calories over a restaurant meal, Fitness magazine reported.


underestimate /?nd?r'est?me?t/ v. 低估;看轻

dressing /'dres??/ n. 穿衣;加工;调味品

preservative /pr?'z?: v?t?v/ n. 防腐剂;预防法

ingredient /?n'gri: d??nt/ n. 原料;要素;组成部分

9. You’re stressed.



Excessive worry can wreak havoc on any health plan. Studies suggest that stress is connected to weight gain thanks to the body’s production of cortisol, which may lead to unhealthy food choices.


excessive /?k?ses?v/ adj. 过多的,极度的

wreak /ri: k/ v. 造成(巨大的破坏或伤害)

havoc /'hæv?k/ n. 大破坏;浩劫

cortisol /'k?: t?s?l/ n. 皮质醇

10. You’re watching your favorite show while you eat dinner.



Sorry, “House of Cards” fans. You may want to pause your marathon when you’re eating. People tend to consume more when they’re distracted than they would if they were mindfully focusing on their meal, according to Harvard Health. It all comes down to your brain processing what’s going on in your body.

对不起,《纸牌屋》的粉丝们。当你进餐时,你可能得暂停你的追剧马拉松。据《哈佛健康》(Harvard Health)报道,人们在注意力分散时,往往比专注于自己的饮食时,吃得更多。这一切都归结于你的大脑正在处理你身体里正在发生的事情。

marathon /'mær?θ(?)n/ n. 马拉松赛跑;耐力的考验

distracted /d?'strækt?d/ adj. 心烦意乱的;思想不集中的
