Does anyone know why?
Been on a diet for the last 2 weeks. Counted calories, fats etc and done loads of exercise i.e. walking for 30 mins a day, riding 45 mins a day, sit ups, pess ups etc. A complete lifestyle change!!! But haven't lost a pound. Why is that? Does any one know.

Are you dieting or exercising but not losing weight?
If you're one of those people with a weight problem, then this could be the most important letter you've ever read ...
From: Jackie Bushell
Saturday, October 14, 2006

Dear Friend,

Do any of these apply to you?

you're sticking to your diet faithfully – but it's not working
you've increased exercise, running or aerobics as a way to lose weight – but you're still not losing weight
you are gaining weight, even though you're dieting, exercising or both
your diet was working fine, until you hit a weight loss plateau
you lose some weight but then you put it all back again
with each successive diet, it gets harder to lose the weight

If, like me, you've been searching for answers to these problems, you'll know that it's very difficult to find them. I've been on diets for most of my life – and through most of that time, I was the classic yo-yo dieter. I know very well what it's like to be constantly on a diet, yet never to succeed in losing weight permanently.

But there is a solution to your weight loss problem or plateau, and that's what I want to tell you about in this letter ...
Did you know that your body has all kinds of survival mechanisms in place which can prevent you from losing weight? These same mechanisms are often the cause of the diet plateaus that cause weight loss to stall for many dieters after they have been losing weight successfully for a period of time. They are also the cause of yo-yo dieting.

There are many other factors which can also interfere with your weight loss efforts. They can prevent weight loss no matter which type of diet you're on, or how hard you are exercising.

There could be a number of reasons for that. Take a look at
There's a wealth of information and helpful advice about dieting in many different ways. A few thousand articles. It makes me lose weight just trying to read them all :)

you've added muscule and it weighs more than fat
or youve got to giv it timee to work

You might have an underlying medical condition such as an uneractive Thyroid which causes a weight problem, so get checked out by your doctor.
If that isn't the case it might be that you're overdoing the exercise and not eating enough food to fuel it. Make sure your diet is well balanced with a good supply of protein, carbs and healthy fats. If you're not eating enough your body will go into "starvation mode" and shut down, causing your weight to stay the same. You need to be eating three healthy meals and a good supply of protein if you're doing a lot of exercise.

Same thing happened to me

cleo the pussycat
u may have to wait longer to see results, or maybe go to see a gym instructor/nutritionalist and tell them what your doing, they can give u a diet Plan/workout plan that is guarenteed weightloss

also if u visit the pub this doesnt help, 150+ cals in a pint!

Dieting depends on a lot of different things. How about going to a GP for advice or a diet expert.

yes if you developed muscle it weighs heavier than fat try measuring your self you will be losing inches its what you look and feel like not what you weigh

Most people who are watching their weight lose a substantial amount of weight in the first two weeks. So something is wrong. First stop should be your doctor you need to make sure you are working on a level playing field with the rest of us.

He or she can then steer you in the right direction.

I will remind you if you have been exercising, you will be building up muscle
tissue and muscle weighs more than fat. Your mirror might be a useful guide here. Muscle or fat?

If I were you I would congratulate myself for making a real step towards long term health by exercising and taking an active interest in weight management.

Well done you! Do not forget it really is worth checking in with your doctor---Good luck

Try Acupuncture or a Hypnotist.

It takes a few weeks for your body to realise a change, keep at it you should notice a difference soon. As they say Rome wasn't built in a day!

you need to be patient it will start coming off

devils sweetheart
u probably find uv lost fat and gained muscle, either that or uv filled up on water and its water replacement dnt worri u'll see results soon

well if you really want to lose wait don't worry about it and join a sport and try not to eat so much junk!!!

michael t
you platoed keep working you'll lose

Firstly don't count calories. Just eat sensibly, snack on healthy food and TREAT YOURSELF every now and again. As soon as you say you're dieting, psychologically it's much harder. And make sure you're never hungry, as this causes your body to crave for sugar. Cravings for sugar can be dealt with by eating sweet fruits, such as pears. And allow yourself to indulge in a bar of chocolate once or twice a week. If it's in moderation, it does no harm.

Secondly, when you exercise you lose fat and gain muscle, so although you may have lost fat, chances are you've added muscle (which weighs more than fat). The best way to tell if you're losing weight is by looking at inches. If your losing fat, your clothes will get looser. This can happen without losing pounds.

Don't get disheartened and keep it up. You'll feel much better in the long run!

It is really hard when this happens, I start a new diet every week .....but keep at it, it will work, maybe you arn't eating enough, it may sound daft but you have to eat the right amount of calories for your weight to keep your metabolism going. After all that exercise you must feel healthier, and have you noticed your clothes are a little looser around the waist? The scales are only 1 way of measuring your weight loss. Good Luck.

Can't have sugar without UGA
You need time for your body to adjust to your new program. If you just had a 'complete lifestyle change,' then your body is either in shock, or survival mode. 'Lifestyle changes' should be eased into and not jumped into... I know thats not so optimistic, but keep it up and the weight should start dropping! Also are you watching your carbs?

Muscle weighs more than fat.........................

You are doin a loada exercise and probably losing weight but also developing muscle.

This would explain it.

Make sure you are doing a good amount of cardiovascular exercise and not just muscles toning/building exercises.

Keep up the good work, and remember there is no such thing as a diet, it has to be a lifestyle change, so ask yourself one question............can you keep up the amount you are doing forever?

Are you eating enough? You need to eat well balanced meals to keep your metabolism at a good rate. Especially brekkie (which should be eaten within an hour of getting up to get full benefit).

Lily & Stu Too
Sounds like you have bulked up your muscle tone with all the exercise - and it's true, muscle IS heavier than fat and would therefore probably negate any actual weight loss from the dieting.

Why not try 'measuring' yourself and using that as a guide if you are planning on keeping up the increased exercise. I bet you'll find you have lost inches, even if the scales aren't reassuring you!
