Can't lose weight!
SaraSmed posted:
I am getting married in September and I want to lose about 20 lbs. I am 28 year old female 5'6" currently 153lbs. I have been trying to lose weight since January and I am getting nowhere! I work out every day. Length of workout varies - Minimum 30 minutes maximum 2 hours. I thought I was eating healthy, but I just cannot get this weight off. I was just wondering what other people eat for meals and snacks? Breakfast for me is typically oatmeal, yogurt w/ granola, or a protein bar. Morning snack is a piece of fruit or yogurt. Lunch is a frozen lunch (lean cuisine, smart ones) and a side of veggies (green beans, broccoli, carrots...) or leftovers from dinner the night before. Afternoon snack is a piece of fruit, yogurt, or sometimes I will have low fat popcorn or almonds. Dinner is typically grilled meat and veggies. Sometimes I will make pasta or rice. Meat is always chicken or beef. I do not like fish, pork or turkey. I have a cup of coffee in the moring with a packet of splenda, nothing else. For the rest of the day it is water. Maybe a glass of skim milk with dinner or on rare occasions a diet soda. I rarely eat out or drink alcohol. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?? Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you!

I found the website has very helpful information about weight loss, it'll boost your diet. check this- Important Fat Loss Tip . and don't drink diet soda. it has substituted sugar that will harm your brain.
