I'm a 21 year old and 5'1 and 156 pds, I run 3 miles everyday do strength training 4 days a week and work literally everyday which keeps me on my feet. I also watch what i eat, only consuming 1400 calories a day max and only losing one pound every two weeks?! I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, due to my hieght I feel theres a high standard of being close to 100 to 120 pds to be considered normal and healthy wieght. I want to atleast be close to 130 but over the three months of pushing my self to wieght loss only lost a total of four pds?? Any tips on what i can do to improve or am i doing something wrong??
You may not be getting enough cals for how much your working out, plus when you are smaller its harder to lose cus you dont have much 2 lose you just have to keep pushing and it will come maybe not as fast as you want but it will
You say that you only eat 1400 cal a day. What is your carb intake, Healthy Fat intake and Protein intake? How many meals is the 1400 cal split up over and what is the intensity that you do as cardio?
To be honest just running is not always the best way to burn Calories because your body gets used to it! Interval cardio is usually what I put all of my clients on because it is more intense! Do you do Cardio before or after your workout? What time do you workout and do cardio? Do you do cardio on an empty stomach First thing in the morning to attack fat storage? There is so many things that you could be doing wrong and franly haven't provided the proper information for someone to give you the proper advice!! If you could be a little more specific maybe I could help you reach your fitness goals!
