I'm new to this community, but I'm hoping someone can shed some light on my issue. I've been trying to lose weight for the past two years. When I initially started I saw some limited succeess, but have since stalled. I've tried doing almost every diet out there with no success.
My latest "diet" has me wearing a body bug to track how many calories I burn on a daily basis. Most days I consume around 1,500 -1,600 calories and I burn between 2,800 and 3,000 calories. I document everything that goes into my mouth, get eight hours of sleep a night and drink more than the recommended eight glasses of water a day. My diet consists of the recommened amounts of fruits and vegetables and I limit my sugar intake. All of my other "numbers" are at the normal level. I've spoken to my doctor about the issue and have tried all of her suggestions. I have had a thyroid test done in the past and it reveals my thyroid is functioning normally.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what my problem could be or what I should be talking with my doctors about? I appreciate any feedback. Thank you.View Thread
