You’re cutting down calories in a bid to lose weight and be healthier, but you don’t see any change in the scale. The reason could be that cup of bubble tea you indulge in every day. You’re having a low-calorie diet anyway, so surely a cup of bubble tea a day is fine, right? Wrong. Both of these attempts to lose weight produce hormones that actually prevent you from shedding the kilos. In fact, there are seven hormones that could get in the way of your weight loss plan. Scroll through the gallery to find out what they are and what you can do to remain on-track.

Important note: Only try weight-loss methods under strict supervision of a doctor or nutritionist. To lose weight, we recommend working out instead. Here are fitness classes you can sign up for.
