Weight Loss Plan: How Long Does it Really Take to See Results

February 25, 2020

In the world of weight loss, instant results are typically viewed as a myth. It can take some time to see results from eating healthier and exercising. It can take around six months for women to lose 10% of their body fat.  While some weight loss plans do show quick results, others focus on the long-term. There are a variety of factors that affect how quickly you will see weight loss progress.

Health Conditions

Many medical conditions can serve as a cause for weight gain. Some of these conditions include an underactive thyroid, Cushing’s syndrome, and polycystic ovary syndrome. These three health conditions lead to weight gain due to hormones in the body. Treatments for medical conditions can also cause weight gain, including diabetes treatment and steroid treatment. These two treatments can lead to weight gain because they either require or influence a person to eat more food. 

Starting Size 

The amount you initially weigh before attempting to lose weight will greatly impact your weight loss progress. If your starting weight is on the obese range of the body mass index, you could lose up to twenty pounds in a month. This might not even be as noticeable on a larger body. For a woman with a lower BMI, losing twenty pounds can cause a huge change in appearance and clothing sizes. 

Essentially, the less you weigh, the harder it will be to lose weight. If you are larger, you will initially have an easy time dropping pounds. Still, your body will eventually become accustomed to the exercises you are using. This means you will need to vary exercise routines. As you lose more weight, it will also become harder to see big changes. It all depends on your size. Everyone loses weight at a different pace! 

Avoiding Carbohydrates 

The amount of carbohydrates you eat in a day makes a huge difference in how quickly you will lose weight. For example, if you have too many cheat days, it slows down progress. On the other hand, carbohydrate restriction will help you lose water weight. Your body uses water to store carbohydrates, meaning when you reduce the number of carbs you consume, you will lose the water used to store it. By losing this water weight, you will see a noticeable change in your body.
