For the past 4-5 weeks I have been religiously monitoring and counting calories. Have cut out snacks and sugary foods so I only eat 3 times a day. I am now walking over 3 miles/day (before I was only managing around 0.5 miles/day). My calorie intake averages around 1600-1700 cals/day for 5 days out of 7 (for the other 2 days I am only eating around 200 cals/day) . Despite all this change I have put ON around 2-3 lbs. My BMI is 32 (ie obese) and my resting metabolism is 1750 cals/day. Why am I not losing weight if I am eating less calories than my resting metabolism figure????
