In a nutshell:

Inconsistency
There is no magic pill for an instant healthy body. You have to make sacrifices to reach your goals.

Not tracking your food intake
Eating nutritious food is great and all, but if you’re not tracking what you eat, you may consume more calories than you realize. This is a common rookie mistake that leads to gaining more weight rather than losing some.

All cardio, no weightlifting
One big misconception that people have about losing weight is that the only exercise they need to do is running, which is the exact opposite of what needs to be done.

Drinking sugar beverages
I know, I know… it’s hard to start your day without your coffee. Soda and fruit juices are just too tempting, especially on a hot summer day. And it won’t be a boys’ night out without alcohol, right?
Sadly, additives like cream and sugar in those beverages are loaded with extra calories. What’s more, appetite centers in your brain are unaffected by the liquid calories the same way calories from solid foods do.

Not enough protein intake
Want a tip for getting a better-looking body? Don’t forget to eat more protein. Out of all nutrients, protein is the single most important nutrient for weight loss. Why? A high protein intake boosts metabolism, reduces appetite, and adjusts the hormones that control your weight.

Bad sleep cycle
There are a lot of reasons sleeping the right amount is important.
Lack of sleep can slow your metabolism, increase ghrelin (a hunger-stimulating hormone), and decrease leptin levels (a hormone that suppresses appetite). These stimulate hunger even when you’re full that can lead to overeating and weight gain.

No cheat day or too many cheat days
Is it okay to have cheat days? Yes, definitely. Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has his cheat day. Having a regularly scheduled cheat day each week can be good for weight loss by preventing binges, reducing cravings, providing a mental break from dieting, and boosting metabolism—if it’s done healthily, emphasis on the “healthy”.

Not drinking enough water
If there’s one thing people turn a blind eye to the most when losing weight, it’s that they don’t drink the amount of water they should. It’s probably the most important aspect of losing weight.
