Skipping meals only make you more likely to hog on bigger meals later. Three balanced meals in a day is a good way to regulate your system into functioning properly. If you want to take it a notch higher, start having five small meals a day—a balance of carbs, proteins, roughage and healthy liquids.

2. Missing Breakfast

They don't call it the most important meal of the day for nothing. Eating a breakfast that is a healthy balance of protein and fibre like eggs with fruit and whole-wheat toast, kickstarts your metabolism and prevents you from over-eating throughout the day. A recent study found that those who ate ready-to-eat breakfast cereal, hot cereal or even quick breads had significantly lower BMIs (body mass indices) than those who skipped breakfast.

3. Not Drinking Enough Water

Almost 60 percent of your body is water, which makes it vital to every important metabolic process. Need we say anymore?

4. Eating Processed/ Artificial Foods

It is very common for people to go on a diet and still eat lots of processed foods. But even if you eat them in small quantities, it does the same damage. Hence, you'll have a hard time losing weight.

5. Not Getting Enough Sleep Every Night

Lack of sleep can lead to increase in appetite, irregular cravings for high-calorie foods and low enthusiasm. Getting a good night's sleep brings major health benefits, including healthy body weight. If you awaken before the alarm, you can get by with less sleep. But if you hit snooze, you may need eight, even nine, hours a night to wake up refreshed, recharged, and ready to burn some fat.
