Why am I not losing weight? The more you starve your body, the more it stalls your progress. Make sure you eat at least 1,500 calories each day with low fat content, and keep your diet to natural whole foods. Your body can slow down your metabolic processes, once it gets too comfortable – keep changing your food routines and calories count. Don't maintain the traditional of three square meals a day, instead take smaller meals. You should also engage in some very high intensity workouts. They can make a whole lot of difference. Start jogging or better still run, if you are still walking-speeding up the rate at which your heart beats than enduring your sluggish heart rates. Cut out excess sugar, and drink ounces of water that equals half your weight daily.
