Food Diary, Workouts, Why Isn't This Working?

Recommended Posts

Kate I am sure you are getting more advice on here than you were looking for, but something that worked for me was keeping my food diary online (I know you are keeping a diary, but not sure how). I found that I was able to track my calories more accurately this way. I went to LIVESTRONG.com to do it and found most of the food I ate in their database. The website gave me a caloric guideline to follow based on my goal and it calcuated my percentage of carbs/protein/fat I was eating. It also allows you to enter in the amount of exercise you do in a day to calculate if you are eating more calories each day than you burn.

 

If food seems to be the problem (which was and is mine) this will help. If by chance you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, there is an app which you can download and it makes tracking everything that much easier.

 

Best of Luck to you!!!

When I started trying to lose weight last year, it took 3 weeks before I started to lose weight. I wanted to shoot myself but once it started working I was thrilled. I kept track of everything I ate on a site that counted calories for me, and I also talked to a nutritionist. It's good to know how many calories you are supposed to eat to maintain your weight, and then how many to eat to lose weight and go from there. But don't give up - it takes your body a little while to get used to all of the changes you're making, and if you only need to lose 15 pounds it might even be harder.

Good Luck!
