Grilled chicken - a hero??
Hey guys, I've been told I can eat 2-3 pcs of grilled chicken and I won't put on weight.. I've been happily munching chicken ever since (they call it fat free grilled chicken) although containing my urge to lick white sauce (i cheat sometimes :-P)..I've not gained weight but at the same time I've not lost weight despite cardio work outs. Could it be because of this..
Losing weight is about eating at a calorie deficit. Eat less calories than you burn. If you're not gaining but you're also not losing weight it could be that you're eating at maintenance or you might be eating too few calories.
Sometimes the body goes in to survival mode and won't let you lose any weight if you're not getting enough calories. Try adding 200 calories to your daily amount for a few weeks and see what happens. Also make sure you're drinking PLENTY of water.
Use a food tracking app like MyFitnessPal or Lose It to track how many calories you're eating each day. If you're not burning more calories than you're eating then you won't lose weight. Like Jason said, if you starve yourself of calories then you won't lose either because your body is reverting back to the caveman days of survival and holding on to your weight for dear life.
