Understanding why I am not loosing weight

Sunday, April 29, 2012

I have been tracking my calories on another site LivestrongMy Plate. I have been working out since the begging of the year. I have put on muscle and lost inches with is great! I am having a hard time staying with in my calorie limits. I notice that I eat an average of 1600-2000 cal a day. My recommended calories are 1200-1550.

I am hungry all the time. I am eating whole foods, but tend to eat to many calories of whole foods. I also eat processed foods, which I am trying to lean myself off of. Since turning 37 I notice that I started gaining weight in my mid section. I feel like my metabolism slowed down. I started exercising again by doing classes like Zumba, Body Pump, and now Boot Camp for the extended metabolic burn.

I have read that Diet is key to loosing body weight. That is where I need help and support and why I have decided to join SP. I am going to incorporate the meal plans and get the tips that SP have to offer.

I just don't want to loose weight, but make a total lifestyle change. I want to have my children and husband also benefit from the healthy lifestyle as well.

As I get into my Forties I want to stay as healthy as I can. emoticon

    thanks for the great tips! It's an eye opener to see how many calories are one serving. I am currently at 165 lbs. I am not stressing over the number. Just want to be healthy and lower my body fat%.

    I had exactly the same situation with cravings and food issues. Here is a website to the health plan that I am on: http://kumoacupuncture.com/resource
s/printouts/Nutrition.pdf It's one page and very simple to follow. (keep in mind they mean natural cane sugar when they say brown sugar) A must is getting off of all the artificial sweeteners. They will make you craves sweets and carbs along with some other serious side effects. If you want to know more I have some websites you might like to read...just let me know. Along with the eating plan I take a good multi vitamin and ProOmega Fish oil (no mercury). I have no cravings and I am actually having trouble eating all the calories I'm supposed to. For me I don't eat wheat, soy or corn. I'm allergic to soy and the other two upsets my gut. I try to eat about 2lbs of veggies a day. 1 lb steamed and 1 lb raw. There just isn't room in there to be hungry!! I've been losing an average of 2lbs a week. I've gotten through a plateau at 225 which I've been unable to do for several years. I'm sitting at my next number of 220 and know that I will be able blow though it!

I hope this helps!

    Maybe it's the kind of calories you are eating. I know processed foods contain lots of sodium. When I started eating whole wheat, black beans, eating more boneless chicken breasts and not as much red meat I started losing weight. I also have a kitchen scale on my counter with a set of measuring cups and I weigh my meat or chicken, measure my veggies and whatever every day. It takes a lot of patience to do this but it has helped me. I wish you success on your journey.
