According to our calculator, her sedentary calories are 2218 just to maintain her current weight. Therefore on exercise days she is putting her body in a 1318 calorie deficit.

Our basic understanding of weight loss principles would say, “wow, she should be at her target weight in no time!” but, the body doesn’t quite work that way unfortunately.

Your body is a very complex machine. so follow up this things and you can understand the reason behind this :

1. Start Tracking Your Calories

  • Weight loss foods are lower calorie foods that fill you up quicker, keep you satisfied longer while curbing your cravings & killing your appetite for long periods of time so when you eat more weight loss foods.
  • Weight loss foods are also ‘highly thermionic foods’ meaning every time you eat them it increases your metabolism because your body has to burn a lot of fat just to digest them.
  • Weight loss foods keep your blood sugar levels under control so you’ll burn more fat instead of storing fat.
  • You will find it extremely difficult (as you may already know) to lose weight without counting calories eating these bad foods

2. Double Check Your Calorie Counts

  • Double check and make sure you counted your calories correctly by re-checking the serving sizes & amounts of the foods you eat & then
  • Whenever you THINK you’re eating less than 2000 calories and you still can’t lose weight then you more than likely miscalculated your calorie intake because you must realize that…

3. Stubborn Fat?

  • Even though you’re doing the same workout you burn less calories & lose weight slower doing it because your body uses less energy or burns less calories to move a smaller body. 3 ways to burn more calories
  • Your metabolism gets slower as you lose weight because it doesn’t take much energy or your metabolism doesn’t have to burn so many calories to maintain a smaller body.
  • For example, at 200 lbs. you’ll lose weight every week on a 1500 calorie diet because your metabolism burns at least 2000 calories per day vs. at 135 lbs. your metabolism may burn less than 1500 calories per day meaning you’ll lose weight slower on a 1500 calorie diet.

4. Eat Less

If you’re eating the right amount of calories, you’ve double checked everything and you still can’t lose weight… Then you simply need to Eat at least 250 less calories but you should only to do this to lose stubborn fat or your last 5-to-15 pounds.
