Hey, I really have a huge problem : I don't lose weight at all :-$ I've tried a lot of different diets but the only thing I get as results is feeling tired, depressed and so disappointed. I'm working out everyday in this period and no results. Any advices??

Hi firstly just relax. Sometimes trying too hard just causes stress which leads to weight gain and depression and so on. So enough of the depressing stuff. Be happy that firstly u are alive! Yes u are breathing man! Take a deep breath yes go on, dead people can't do that! Now that u realise that u are alive u realise u have the power to conquer anything u want but it's not going to b easy. Don't look for easy fixes that u may think come easy to other people. U never know what troubles others are having behind...

It's all about intensity as well. Try to exhaust yourself and try high interval intensity training. Worked for a few of us

Do you exercise? Also eat three small meals and two in between meals, fruits.

I do exercise every day and because I'm busy I eat only one or two meals a day but nothing changed!

Hey don't lose hope. Depression and stress are also contributing factors of weight gain. Try to squuze in 4 to 5 meals a day instead of two and workout mostly cardio and running. Try to avoid junk food. You will definitely see results. It might take time but it will work and instead of following the weighing scale, observe the changes in your body standing in front of the mirror or on your clothes. That way it will keep you motivated and right on track. Good luck!!!

I used to feel that way. I only recently started actually seeing results, and to be honest I don't know what changed. I'm not really doing anything different than everything I'd tried before.

Are you counting calories at all? If you're not keeping a food journal I recommend that. We often lose track of what we are actually eating. We might think since we are only eating a few small meals that we are good, but we forget that cream and sugar in our coffee, condiments, gum and candy, and snacks that someone brought into the office, not to mention soda, all have a lot of calories and add up very quickly.

Eating throughout the day is important because it keeps your metabolism going. You said you don't usually because you're busy. Try to make healthy snacks just as convenient as the vending machine and portable. Whenever I buy fresh veggies I cut them all up right away and put them in containers so I can just grab them when I want a snack or take them on the go.

Remember too, that your success is going to be influenced more by your diet than your exercise. I'm not talking about "going on a diet," im talking about what you eat every day. Avoid "diets" because they aren't always healthy, plus when you reach your goal and then go back to eating normal, your results will fade quickly. Just focus on eating healthy. Lots of whole, fresh, unprocessed foods in as close to their natural state as possible. Nothing in boxes or cans. And take baby steps. I was practically living on fast food and frozen dinners.  It's taken me a long time and multiple attempts to get where I am now, and I still have a long way to go. You don't want to overwhelm yourself. That's how you'll fail. The way to be consistent is to make small and gradual changes.

If you truly feel like you're doing everything right and still not losing weight, then you might want to consult your doctor. There may be another issue that your body needs taken care of first.

Such a fantastic advice from Lauren, I completely agree with her. Don't give up Amal, we all have our low points and sometimes it feels like what's the point? But just hang in there and don't give in to that horrid feeling, just keep doing your workouts and follow Lauren's advice. Its a slow process i know but keep at it and you'll get there, be patient. Right now I'm contemplating on doing my workout training or not whilst munching on a chocolate bar, I shouldn't but I feel really weak & tired today, I dont normally eat sweets but...

Hey if you are skipping junk food that's great try reduce your fruit intake. Fruit is sugar, sugar is energy and if you fill the cup of sugar the excess that overflows and turns into fat. So you don't overflow the cup have a check out "I quit sugar" and get a cal free sugar alternative the less sugar you get the better. Berries have less sugar then other fruit, nanna has lots of sugar so if you have one in every meal you're going backwards unless you are leading a very very active lifestyle. Your body needs protein and fat, try to cut starchy veg like peas and potatoes from of your diet start eating eat pumpkin,  spinach, broccoli google "non stachy vegetables"  have a steak it'll make you feel better. You need to have fat and protein in you're diet protein for mussels and fat helps you feel good

There are a lot of great suggestions on this thread. I went through a similar situation several years ago.

Besides eating healthy foods and being on a exercise regime. I got rid of my scale. I became fixated on the numbers which made me more depressed and led to unhealthy habits. It took several years for me to realize that I'm not a number and to move forward.

I do a lot of Journaling to keep track of foods, workout sessions,  and most importantly what happened during the day to cause me to go off of regime. I've made it a habit to journal for 10 before I go to bed.

I'm 37 now and have never been healthier in my life.
