Why Am I Not Losing Weight With Running?
Many people start running to lose weight but some find out that they don't lose weight,
some even gain weight or lose a few pounds and stop. What could be the reasons for this?
Too Many Caloriess
You may be hungrier than you were before you started running, and you're eating more calories than you realize.
Try spreading out your calories throughout the day into 5 or 6 small meals so you don't get ravenous and overeat.
And make sure you're snacking on healthy foods, not junk food, which can trigger hunger.
Muscle Weighs More Than Fats
Another explanation is that you're building more muscle mass, which is denser than fat.
So while you may not be losing weight, your body fat percentage has decreased and you're more toned than you were before.
Extra Water Storages
When you increase your training to prepare for a goal race, your body begins to retain and store additional water to repair damaged muscle fibers and to deliver glycogen to the working muscles.
Likewise, you may even be drinking more water to stay hydrated after your runs. Water may add weight to the scale, but it is not accurate of the training adaptations.
Add Distance and Intensitys
If you always run the same pace, try incorporating speed intervals in one run. You can start adding speed by warming up for a KM and then running at a faster pace (breathing heavy but still in control) for a minute and then recovering at an easy pace for a minute.
