Cardio is a great way to burn calories and fat, but it also burns muscle. Strength Training will build new muscle, which will also burn EXTRA calories (and replace the muscle you may have lost from all that Cardio.) Also, don't forget to eat a few more calories on your workout days. FUEL your body!
If you are sleeping well ( 7-9 hours), exercising and drinking lots of water and still not losing, try eating a handful of Almonds daily. They have protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, & minerals. These are essential for your health & for helping you lose weight fast. They protect your heart, build lean muscle, ward off hunger & lower cholesterol.
