Losing weight can be difficult for people. Especially if you have specific eating habits that are non-negotiable and you love food. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy some snacking while watching Netflix?
This is why people choose intermittent fasting, (click the link for our beginner’s guide). It makes losing weight more manageable because you restrict eating to a certain window.
However, what if the desired results are just not showing up? What if you’re not losing weight or hit weight loss plateau?
It can lead to questioning why you started in the first place. Many just give up at this point. But it is not the time to quit. It is just time to analyze your strategy. So fear not, we here at 21 Day Hero have 8 reasons that might just tell you why you are not losing weight on your fast.
