Weighing helps understand the scale of increasing or decreasing weight and the relevant diet plans affecting it. However, many complaint that they feel discouraged or low self-esteem when they weigh day. It’s advisable to check it every other day and not to feel demotivated even if the weight got a rise.
2- Being too strict

Making such meal plans can only lead to anxiety and discouragement on not being able to follow that. Thus, it’s always recommended to make it worth following.
3- Skipping meal
Many people think that not eating at all can help lose weight. But it will never going to help you in long run. Starving yourself will only make you crave more and ultimately eat more and gain weight. Thus, never skip a meal. Always replace it with some protein and fiber-rich food items.
4- Not exercising

No other thing or diet can replace the benefits gained from workout. Choose any activity from sports to swimming, running or even brisk walking. But, ensure that you spend at least 40 mins doing it.
