    Feeling Demoralised

    I'm after some top tips because I'm not losing weight ??. I walk 11km on a Monday, do a heavy session boot camp on a Tues and I swim for 30 mins Wed, Thurs and Fri. I run around after my kids all weekend. I am eating around 1200 calories a day and still I'm not losing any weight. What am I doing wrong? In real need of moral support and ideas please ??.

    According to a recent Harvard University study of over 120,000 participants, they've listed the some of the worst foods and some of the best foods to eat for weight loss.

    Here's the top 5 Worst foods:

    #5 Processed Meats (ham bacon turkey roast beef hot dogs)
    #4 Red Meat
    #3 Sweetened Beverages (Pepsi, Gatorade, Red Bull, Sunny D, Starbucks, Sweet Teas)
    #2 Potatoes
    #1 Chips

    If eating 1200 calories/day worked, wouldn't everybody be doing it?

    For people who, still, have trouble understanding: No more Meat, Potatoes and drink only water! If you want to lose, fastest, eliminate white rice, white noodles, cakes & cookies and bread.

    Do you want to know the 5 best things to eat for weight loss?
