Why Won't My Body Cooperate?

Recommended Posts

I'm doing everything right. Thought the carbs (like watermelon, broccoli and lettuce) were causing slow weight loss. Eliminated them (on the advice of NUT), lost 5 lbs in a week, then...STALL.

All my life, I have had a hard time losing weight. Even at 17, when my Dr. put me on a 1,000 calorie diabetic diet (I don't and never had diabetes) the weight would not come off till I eliminated most food groups, and ate less than 500 calories per day. I also walked at least 2 hours per day.

Now I have a Protein shake in the morning-17 gms Protein, 100 cals

lots of Water and Crystal Light

Lunch-1/4-1/3 cup of some kind of lean protein food

more Water and Crystal Light

dinner 1/4-1/3 cup of lean protein food.

More water and Crystal Light

How am I not dropping massive poundage?? Or at least a steady weight loss. I physically can't eat more or more often.

I rarely sit still, for long, either. Walking, household chores, hiking, Zumba, etc...

BTW, I feel awesome!! Amazing energy. This was also the case, during my phases, in the past, of eating less than 500 cals/day.

What happened to if you burn more calories than you take in, then you lose weight?

Any advice, things that my doc should check, etc...?

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂

        Your progress with weight loss is awesome and so is your garden! I think you should've became a horticulturist. We've really gotten into gardening this year and it's darn good exercise. Keep up the good work and I'll keep watching. :D

      this one is a bit of a slog to get thru but it is important to see the differences they are trying to define.
