I have been keeping track of my daily intake using My Fitness Pal, along with tracking my calorie burn using the Body Bugg, for 3 months now. I have consistently been in a calorie deficit of 500-1000 calories per day, yet I have not seen the scale drop at all! I am 5' 6'', 140lbs, and I exercise 5-6 days per week, alternating cardio and weights. I follow a vegan diet, and according to my diet tracker, I am getting the sufficient nutrients and balance of carbs, fats, and protein daily. I allow one cheat day per week, but even on those days, I do not consume fried foods or those with saturated fats or processed sugar. I know that my body could be in better shape, and my weight goal is between 130-135 lbs. What should I be doing differently?View Thread
