Exercising too much or not at all.
You either get so excited about losing weight that you spend overtime at the gym or don’t exercise enough. In the worst-case scenario, you expect your salads to do all the work.

Here’s what you can do
If you are new to working out and find yourself exhausted after a long workout session, try limiting your exercise time to 20 to 35 minutes a session. Gradually upgrade your timing when you feel you are comfortable doing so.

Choosing low fat or “diet” food
Once you start losing some weight, you become more conscious of what you are eating and how much. You may already have an idea for a list of “diet” foods.

What should you eat instead?
Try going for a combination of nutritious, minimally processed foods. Fruits and vegetables, including canned and frozen, are naturally low-fat and packed with essential nutrients, making them the best low-fat diet food. Instead of eating a whole egg, skip the yolk, and opt for just the egg whites.

You may not be getting sufficient amounts of fiber.
When you are on a restrictive diet, you don’t allow your body to get essential nutrients from food. A lot of these diets fail to give you efficient fiber as a result.

Include these high-fiber foods in your diet for a change in pace
Ditch the white pasta, and go for whole grain pasta instead. Whole grains are a great source of fiber. Not to mention Legumes are also a great source of protein and fiber; try having some chickpeas as they are a great source of this nutrient.

Focusing only on the scale
It’s common to find yourself impatiently circling the weighing scale to see how much you have lost so far, even if it is just day two of going to the gym and eating healthy. You might even think you are not losing weight fast enough despite following a healthy lifestyle.

How can you get rid of this habit?
Instead of a scale, use a measuring tape to measure your waist and take monthly pictures of yourself. This can help you get an idea of how much you’ve transformed since you started dieting and working out.

Setting unrealistic expectations
It's good to have a goal while trying to lose weight. In fact, that will keep you motivated. But having unrealistic expectations could discourage you down the line.

What can you do about this?
The best thing to do here is to set practical goals to help increase your chances of meeting them while healthily losing weight.

And lastly, Not getting the right amount of sleep.
Dark circles are not the only thing you’re gaining from being sleep-deprived. Sleep is an important factor for an overall healthy body.

So how do you tackle this problem?
An average adult needs at least 8 hours of proper sleep. Maintaining healthy sleeping habits is just as necessary as exercising and dieting.
