re: not losing weight fast enough
The best advice I have is to track everything you eat carefully. I have had great success with tracking my macros, which allows me to eat whatever I want within what those should be for each day. Once you do this for a while, you will get used to what things add up to, and it will be much easier. Mostly, tracking what you eat makes you much more aware of what you are putting into your body, and helps cut out all the unnecessary calories that are contributing to your inability to lose weight. Along with this I recommend at least some sort of exercise, even just walking, a few times/week. I take a lot of supplements as well as use liporidex, which just makes me have more energy to be more active and ensures I can stick to lower portions, while getting all my nutrients. There is no one size fits all diet for weight loss, but eating better and moving more is always the best place to start!
