If you can't lose weight…

The 1st thing you want to do Starting tomorrow is…

Take a Food Journal & Write down everything you would normally eat & drink and do this for about 1-to-3 days (if the amounts & types of foods you eat vary each day then you do want to do this for 3 days or more) but after 1-to-3 days…

If you see that you've been eating the right amount of calories & still can't lose weight…

After you've double checked everything & you still can't lose weight…

Start exercising If you can't lose weight or If you're exercising & still can't lose weight…

DO NOT make any excuses for not exercising so…

Be Patient &…

Here's 5 more reasons why you may not be able to lose weight

1. You sleep less than 5-to-7 hours a night…

Your body produces a hormone called Ghrelin which makes you hungrier so you'll eat more & gain weight when you don't get enough sleep but when you do get enough sleep…

Your levels of the hormone Leptin are normal & Leptin makes you more satisfied & not hungry (Leptin means "thin" in Greek) - Read fast weight loss tip #21 about sleep & weight loss

2. You have TOO much STRESS

Your body produces another hunger hormone called Cortisol which makes you overeat to deal with the stress you're having causing you to gain weight so if you're getting stressed out a lot… See 100 ways to conquer stress

3. You may have Hypothyroidism or other conditions

Hypothyroidism is a condition where your thyroid is not functioning at a normal level making your metabolism slow and only a doctor can diagnose you with Hypothyroidism but you can learn more about Hypothyroidism symptoms here and…

Fibromyalgia, Sleep apnea, Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), Cushing's syndrome, and Metabolic syndrome can also cause you not to lose weight.

4. Are you on any Drugs that may cause you to gain weight?

This all doesn't mean you should STOP taking the drugs you need to help your condition but at the same time…. If you're trying to lose weight it's best to ask your doctor for alternative medications to prevent weight gain and…

It's also a good idea to see your doctor right away if you 'unexplainably' gain weight while on a new drug even though you know for sure you're eating right and staying active.

5. You may be retaining excess water weight making you bloated

Eating too many bad foods & salty foods + not drinking at least 1 liter of water everyday will cause you to retain water and put on "false fat" so…

Hello...for years I have struggled with my weight. I was losing a good bit last year while in nursing school I tried weight watchers and went from 188lbs my biggest not being pregnant to 170. Since then I was in the gym a lot and eating right but since O started a nursing job this past June I have been stressed out completely. Now I just received news that my dad has stage IV and its more stress. I have 3 children that constantly act up, my anxiety is bad. I've gained weight and now 194lbs, 5'2", 31y/o female. I am at a point where I know I need to lose but definitely not motovated from stress and sometimes don't even care. Please help with some advice! Thank you!

I can't exercise because of physical problems but according to my doctor my calorie intake is "dangerously low" already (800-1000 calories a day) and I still can't lose weight. It's not "starvation mode" because if I eat anymore, I get as big as a house. Not on any medicine, sleep 8+ hours a night, no endocrine problems. PLEASE help!

June 18, 2014


Hey Adrian. I've lost 24 kgs in total but i still have weight on the back of my neck and loose skin specially on my arms. My arms are still fat. Can you suggest any exercises for arms to reduce loose skin

Adrian Bryant

what is your current weight and height?

May 29, 2014


I'm 5'4 and 60kgs.

May 30, 2014


Okay i will try them. Just one last thing. Will these exercises add alot of muscle on my arms. Because i don't want really muscular arms. I just want the flab to go away.

June 02, 2014

Adrian Bryant

they wont give you 20 inch arms or anything like that but they will firm them up but those exercises do double duty as in burning fat all over including arm flab

if you prefer just losing flab all over then just one of my other fat loss programs

I'm getting very depressed because I have been trying many of things nothing works, I have done a military diet it made me sick due to lack of calories. I did the slim fast diet for three weeks and didn't drop one lb I do a weight watchers work out video, or walking for 45 mins . I need some advice to help get started in a correct path.

Adrian. I am 33 and weigh 180. I have five kids but have also had five misscairages. I workout (zumba and zumba toning) four times a week for 75 min a time. I also do baby weight training (situps with the baby, squats with the baby and lunges while holding the 24 pound stinker) I use calorie counter app and consume 900 to 1400 calories a day. Lots of salad with no dressing and I try to stay pretty low carb. In the first three months I lost almost 30 pounds bur Ibam stuck now and have been for 4 months! I'm ready to give up. What suggestions do you have? Also. I drink tons of water but always with lemon in it cause plain water tastes like bad breath. Thanks.

Hi I've been going to the gym and got a personal trainer for three months know and have only lost .5 pounds. I am 54 and app 190 pounds at the height of 5"6'. I've been overweight for about 16 years and I've had twins and other child almost 21 years ago and the weight wasn't this hard to lose,( I never fully lost all of the body weight but definitely lost most of it) I use the lose it app to count all my calories. I am now eating about 1650-1680, and the goal was 1683. I drink only alkaline water and detox my body wit alkaline foot soak.
Also when I first went to my personal trainer he said I was eating too little and my body was holding fat. I went to my doctor to check to see if my thyroid was OK and at first it came back as over active but got it check again and came back normal.
I'm starting to give up on ever losing weight. I just don't understand when I have so much weight to lose how I'm not losing anything.

what is your workout regimen like?

April 24, 2014


Hi, I am a 42 yr old female. I am 5'7 and 230 lbs. I have changed my eating patterns. Watch everything very closely. And eat mostly raw foods. I workout at least 3-4 days a week. With weight training also. I have had 4 knee surgeries which limits me a lot in the gym. I have been doing this for 4 weeks and have not lost a pound. What am I doing wrong?

adrian bryant

how many caloreis are you eatingq

April 11, 2014


Hi Adrian,
I have not counted calories yet. unfortunately fruit and veggies don't come with nutrition stickers. But I have found a calorie counter today that I am going to start using. It said I should eat about 1500 calories a day. I also got a meter to see how many steps a day I am taking.

April 11, 2014

adrian bryant

I sure will. Thank you.

HI, I'm 24, about 213 and 5'2. I have a shape so I don't feel too bad about my weight, I guess my fat is proportioned. I also have a giant butt/hips and boobs. I gained a lot of weight when I had my son. I was 19 then, worked really hard to finish college, now I'm real busy with work (desk job). It's been hard finding the time and the will to do something about my weight. I became a pescetarian 78 days ago (cold turkey). I drink mostly water during the day, and eat about 1300 +/- calories a day. I dont understand why I can't seem to lose any weight/fat. I workout a couple of times a week, I jog at least 1 mile and some sit ups/strength. What would you suggest? Could it be that I'm too stressed?

March 25, 2014

Adrian Bryant

how are you tracking the 1300 calories?

March 28, 2014


I'm using the fitness pal app, scanning the bar codes or entering the cals in. I have a food scale to weigh the food. Also my treadmill gives the estimate of total calories.lost. The app adds the cals I eat and then subtracts the cals I lost.
