Hi there,

I am new to the forum..... apparently your all friendly so i am happy to be here!!

does anyone else struggle with weight loss? and im not talking, struggling with the diete aspect of it,

basically, i eat so well, i am the healthiest 'larger lady' i know!!
i eeat 3 meals a day, good portion sizes not excessive, i eat wholemeal versions of everything, i eat weetabix at brekkie, sandwich and fruit at lunch, and dinner usually consists of chicken/fish/beef/pork ( yes i know beef and pork are fatty but i get lean versions and its not every day anyway) with new potatoes, sweet potatoes and veg. After dinner if i get hungry i snack on fruit or yogurt....

i thought that was good? i exercise 3 times a week at the gym and walk to and from work most days about half hour in total of walking.

i feel like i am at a brick wall cos i just lose weight sooooooooo slowly it gets disheartening, any tips to speed my metabolism maybe? could it even be that?
i am healthy cos a recent blood test ruled out thyroid problems etc.

any ideas?

sorry for waffling.... (Mmmmmm waffles)

I'm like you. My metabolism is sluggish (at best) and I had real difficulty in shifting any weight, despite having a constantly healthy diet.

I saw my GP in the end, who has been fab. Got appointments with nutritionist and physiotherapist (the latter for a health issue which meant no exercise) and they cobbled together a very low cal diet for me to follow alongside gentle exercise.

I've just started the exercise in the past week (it's taken a while to get me capable of it) but the diet adaptations have been life-changing, they really have. Is it worth having a chat to your GP to see if they can offer any suggestions?

hi lisa

recently i have been trying to avoid carbs with my evening meal, and it seems to be working for me! im not craving carbs as i have them with my 2 earlier meals. .

maybe that would work with you?

Imagine the feeling when you step on the scales, see the numbers go down and then have your doctor/nurse praise you for it and tell you how well you're doing!

have you considered doing a recognised eating plan rather than healthy eating?

I'm doing slimming world and I notice from your list of what you eat in a day that if you'd only had either weetabix or sandwich rather than as well as it would be an extra easy day.

Maybe cut the carbs from one meal? That worked for me before! Could be worth calorie counting for a couple of weeks just to check your intake isn't too high/low? Zig zagging your intake can sometimes stir your metabolism up I think? So you'd eat different amounts on different days but it can be random if you don't follow a plan? Someone posted about that on here somewhere an it was a really interesting idea?

Good luck!!

Have you logged your food on myfitnesspal? This is a really good tool and maybe you would realise how many cals carbs etc you are eating/ You can log exercise too.
I would have a go at using that and see what it recommends and if your weight still isnt shifting i would go to the docs x
