|Why no weight loss?|
The following question was answered by Ryan Rogers, MS, CSCS, USWF I, Strength and Conditioning Coach at Fitness Quest 10.
I've been exercising five days per week and eating less for the last 6 months and haven't noticed a significant change in my weight. What can I do to get the pounds to start coming off?
Good job on keeping up the diet and exercise consistently. Here are a few other things to consider when trying to lose weight.
1. Make sure you are eating enough.
Although this sounds strange, if you don't eat enough, your body goes into starvation mode and will lower the amount of calories you burn on a daily basis. The best way to figure out how much to eat is to meet with a registered dietician. They are qualified to analyze your current food intake and make some recommendations.
2. Don't neglect the stairs.
