What if weight is not coming off even if you are eating well and exercising? I am wondering if there can be other causes. What if you are even following a dieticians plan and still not dropping pounds?
My weight doesn't really come off either and I eat right daily and exercise at least 3 times a week. I heard that if you aren't losing weight it could be a thyroid problem, so you may want to get blood tests completed to rule it out. I had two of them done and both came back that my thyroid is fine, so now I'm at a loss.
It would depend on how long the weight has been plateaued. If you are exercising more than you used to, and you still haven't lost weight, it could be that your body is building muscle at the same rate that it is losing fat. Give it another week or two, and if nothing changes after that, then another meeting with the dietician may be in order. Best of luck in your endeavour!
Once your body gets used to exercise and diet you may plateau. You need to start(if you haven't already) keeping a detailed food diary. Write down every single thing that you eat or drink(if it has calories) and make sure you are drinking enough water. You need to be burning off more calories exercising than you are putting in. Also add strength training if you haven't. Muscle burns more calories. If none of that is working, you may need to be checked for a thyroid problem by your doctor.
Are you male or female? If you are female, it is entirely possible that you have a hormonal imbalance. I know that I can lower my calories to the point that I'm sick, but I barely lose weight. It's the kind of calories I consume that help boost weight loss. Eat less carbohydrates and more fresh veggies and lean proteins.
Have you tried keeping a food journal? Have you been to see a dietician? Sometimes we underestimate what we eat. Keep a journal or an online one. You need to see exactly what you are eating, the amount of calories, carbs, fats. Then you can plan an effective meal plan to take off the weight. Be honest as you won't see results unless you are.
You have probably reached a plateau if your progress has halted. Losing or gaining weight is not a linear process, weight loss and weight gain can happen in spurts. To overcome the plateau you need to make changes to your diet and your exercise routine, small changes will be enough.
