Q: Why am I not losing weight?

A: Losing weight typically comes down to such factors as hydration levels, daily caloric intake, exercise habits, and meal times.

Drinking water naturally suppresses appetite,  and can even help your body burn calories faster, while .  Limiting your daily caloric intake can also contribute to weight loss, and doesn’t necessarily have to involve eating less food.  Eating more vegetables and high nutrient foods can provide you with the calories you need without leaving you hungry. Varying the exercises you do can substantially contribute to losing weight as well.  Finally, staggering your meals so that you eat large, high protein breakfasts, and smaller dinners can also contribute to ensuring you’re burning calories instead of sleeping on them.

A: Part of the reason may be your diet.  Incorporating more carbohydrates and protein into your diet can help contribute to muscle and weight gain.
