Help! I Eat Sensibly & Exercise, But I’m Not Losing Weight

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I am a 58 year old woman who has been tracking calories and exercise since I got a smartphone. For the past 3 months I’ve been eating an average of 1200 calories a day and burning anywhere from 900 to 3,000 calories a day. I haven’t lost a pound…in fact I’ve gained 7 pounds!

I work out hard 3 times a week burning more than 2500 calories on those days. I drink over 3 liters of water a day, stay away from sugar and fat, lowered my sodium intake and eat sensible portions. I cook my own food to make sure of the sugar and sodium content. Help!
