Wow. I don't know you're real problem but I know I worked out and "ate healthy" for three months and didn't lose weight cuz i was still eating to fulfill my hunger, just with healthy food. When I started.counting calories with myfitnesspal I realized I was still eating too much and saw results in a week.

And there lies the problem. People get too obsessed with calorie counting that they forget how the body works. Build muscle and just workout regularly. Never stop. Lift weights. Muscles do burn more calories. In the end, you will end up weighing more but actually looking leaner as you have changed your body composition.

Um calories ARE how the body works. Many ppl don't have the time or.energy to exercise to the point of being able to just not care about their caloric intake. I was slightly overweight but couldn't understand why I wasn't losing it. The body wants to maintain itself even if its overweight, I just ate more (healthy food) when I exercised more. Then I paid attention to calories and it worked.

Not exactly. If you don’t exercise enough for your body to need to expend the calories you intake and the fat you do have to repairing and building muscles, then nothing will happen. It also has to do with what kind of food you actually eat. Certain types of foods have a high calorie value yet is easily digestible by the body, making you easily hungry and consuming more calories than required by your body. I recommend reading nerdfitness.com. I know this by principle through my profession as a nurse, but seeing actual people proving it right by their lifestyle...

We probably actually agree on these things but are just coming at then from opposite directions to meet in the middle. A while ago I changed my diet to avoid sugar and wheat and incorporated brown rice as my main staple, which worked great for me in the past when I was way more active and had a younger metabolism. This time around I had to start keeping track of calories to see that, while brown rice is a pretty healthy choice, it still has quite a few calories and I was eating just enough to maintain my weight in...

Use high intensity interval training principles whenever you work out - studies have shown that HIIT increases your resting metabolic rate for hours afterwards (also known as the afterburn effect).

Use every spare second you have to be active - do a short mini workout oike Grind Hard or take a quick walk or just do pushups/situps/crunches etc. All these increase you daily total calorie use and boost your metabolism.

I'm taking medications for my hypothyroidism but that's another story. As what they've said, do a daily workout to build muscles as they help in our metabolism.
