I stopped smoking six months ago and I have put about one and half stones on! I decided it was time to lose it especially as I am going on holiday in ten weeks and don't want to look like a fat pig next to my skinny friend on the beach. For the last ten days I have not eaten anything other than fruit and veg and low calorie meals i.e. 350 -400 calories in total and I have been keeping a record of my daily intake via the myfitnesspal app. I have been to the gym three times a week and have done spinning classes for 30 mins and a couple of step classes for 30 mins each. To cut a long story short I have not shed a single pound and I am totally confused. I have always been good at dieting but have never been on such a strict regime with zero loss. Can anyone give me any tips? I am 53 this month and probably going through menopause but surely 1300 calories a day should result in some weight loss.
