3 months of workouts and diet changes, no weight loss?
Patient :I am a 30 year old female, weight is 217 and height is 5'6. I have been working out for 3 months with a trainer 3x a week and in the gym 5-6 times a week. I have tried Atkins, gluten free, dairy free, given up soda, a liver/gallbladder cleanse and had my TSH screened. I haven't lost one pound in 3 months. I've cut out sugar, watch my sodium, etc. I am so confused why i can't seem to lose any weight, i am so obese and am trying everything but now i'm out of ideas on what to do? What could be causing my weight to stay even after all my work outs and diet changes?
Sometimes it is not possible to reduce weight by diet and exercise only, we need invasive methods.
So, you have done everything to reduce weight, If there is no obvious reason for obesity and with all means you tried to reduce weight, then the only option left is surgery.
Bariatric surgery is getting popular day by day, it is safer and the results are long lasting.
