A variety of factors, including the following, will impact the rate at which you lose weight, whether it be more fast or more slowly:

You have been consistently exercising and consuming a diet of healthy proteins and broccoli. Instead of ordering pizza for supper, you're ditching the idea and chugging water. You are likely making good choices about your nutrition and physical activity.

And if you're still not satisfied with your weight reduction progress, there are a number of additional significant elements that can be at play. While some of these can be altered to facilitate a more rapid weight loss, others may be beyond your control.

Before accelerating your weight reduction, consider that a healthy quantity should be shed over time. Too much weight loss too quickly is harmful. Most specialists advocate weekly weight reduction of 0.5 to 2 pounds (0.2 to 1 kg).

Weight is the biggest factor in metabolic rate, or how many calories you burn daily. Larger people have greater metabolisms. Losing weight requires ingesting less calories than you expend daily. Because they expend more calories, heavier people may find this simpler.

Having a history of weight gain-weight loss-weight gain makes losing weight tougher each time. When you lose weight, your metabolic rate dips below what it should be based on body size, says Dr. Michael W. Schwartz, professor of medicine and co-director of the UW Medicine Diabetes Institute in Seattle.

You may increase your nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress levels. If you live a healthy lifestyle, pushing yourself to the ideal can help you lose weight. This may include going to bed and getting up an hour earlier, abandoning packaged foods, alcohol, and daily meditation.

How much sleep we receive everyday affects our metabolism and weight loss. Sleeping fewer than seven hours every night slows metabolisms, say experts.

Weight loss becomes tougher with age. It takes longer to lose weight even if they can. Many factors contribute to this, including hormone changes and muscle loss with age.
