Low Calorie Diet
Why is it that low calorie diets only work up to a certain point?  I the first 20lbs just by watching what I eat.  But I've got a lot more to loose and the same low calorie diet isn't working as well anymore.

It could be that you have actually cut your calorie intake too much and your body is holding onto fat because it thinks there won't be enough food coming in - we call this "starvation mode" - your body literally thinks it's going to starve.  

If you can give us a bit more information about yourself - height, weight, calories consumed/day, type of foods you eat, type and amount of exercise you get, etc - we might be able to help you figure out what's going on.  

By the way, welcome to our group.
