(Newser) – If you've mustered the energy to lose weight, nothing is more frustrating than not seeing results. Men's Health lists some common mistakes:

  1. Too much carb consumption
  2. You're eating low-fat foods, but more of them
  3. Skipping breakfast can lead to sugar bingeing

  1. Carefully read labels to guard against food with too much sugar
  2. You're losing muscle if you only do aerobic exercise—pump some iron!
