Please help! I had back surgery in 2009 and put on alot of weight due to constant pain and neuropathy. I have not worked since and have been sedentary for past 6 yrs. I decided 6 weeks ago to do something about it. As of 6 weeks ago I started walking 45 min a day, use an eliptical twice a day 30 min each time, cut out all carbs do only spark, water, protein shakes veggies. Went to dr yesterday and have not lost even a pound. Feel so angry depressed sad etc... What am I doing wrong? Feeling so discouraged thank you

Don't waste your $ on spark!
Do the following!
The Atkins diet and check the following!!
The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling
down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90
second cool down in between each outburst.
This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth
hormone in the body. I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness
because I personally feel that it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at
which you can lose fat and build muscle.
I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page. It will give you all the
information you need to know about Peak 8 – Flood Your Body With This “Youth Hormone” In Just 20
What you eat after Peak 8 training does matter
It’s recommended that you do not eat sugar or carbohydrate for 2 hours after the Peak 8 exercise
because these foods can impact the release of the growth hormone in the body. The links are
Figure your heart rate by this formula
The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone.
The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target
heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work
most effectively during your cardio workouts.
First thing in the morning before you get out of bed have a clock with a second hand and check your
resting heart rate then figure your rate by the Karvonen Formula
The following link will help you figure your heart rate by the Karvonen Formula.
You burn 30 percent more fat from doing cardio after a weights session as opposed to cardio on its own.

Before doing anything get the OK from your doctor!!
