Re: Help... not losing weight
I had a similar problem as you a while back and just gave up. Then I peaked and had no choice. I went for about 8 months eating not over 800-900 calories and also ate healthy, many veggies no red meat rarely even chicken. I was at the gym 5-6 times per week and lost a few pounds then nothing.
Well I'm back at it and was told to up the calories also to about 1400-1500 calories per day mostly veggies, veggie burgers and salmon. No bread or starch at all. The other thing I do after reading a book that I can't mention is one day per week I eat anything I want but you will be surprised that you won't. Well Since January 30 I have as of today lost 38 pounds. I also cut the gym down to 1 or 2 times per week. I will go a week and not loose a pound then 4 pounds in a short period of time. The other thing I now do is eat always, an hour after breakfast a handful of olives, then a low cal. yogurt, then a pickle. Now it's lunch, a veggie burger with brussel sprouts, onions, garlic, baby carrot, celery, peas sprinkled with some low sodium soy sauce and a squirt of mustard. (this a huge plate and not many calories) A few snacks (roasted peppers and some saltines a few spoon fulls of black eye peas or black beans) then it's dinner time.
