Not losing weight?

  • I've been on Ignite for a week now. I've stuck to 1200 calories a day, keeping the evil 6 out of what I eat. I have a heart rate monitor, and so I eat back whatever I burn to keep the calorie count at 1200. So, if I eat 1200 calories all day, and burn

    1200 calories is fairly low - can you try focusing on the quality of the food, not the quantity of the food?

      So, I'm not sure what you mean exactly. I do eat very healthy. Many vegetables, proteins, very few carbs and sugars. Healthy fats. Are you suggesting I eat more? I am really wanting to figure out what is happening here, I just want to make sure I understand? Thanks.

    Acidique - I'm not on Ignite but I do Weight Watchers and use Daily Burn for my exercise. I can tell you from tons of Weight Watchers meetings - under eating will PREVENT you from losing weight. I think the science of it is that your body goes into emerge

      I agree. I am going to try and up my calories to 1400-1500 and see if that makes a difference in the weight loss. I really appreciate you taking the time to answer. Thank you! Congrats on losing 12lbs! That's half of my goal, which is amazing!

    Did you just start working out as well or just start the nutrition part? When you start a new exercise program it "shocks" your muscles and you retain water for the first week or two that is helping your muscles repair. It could also be that you need a me

      When do you stop retaining water and start actually losing weight? I've been working out every day for more than two weeks and I've gained 3 pounds. My measurements are the same. Kinda discouraging, except I can feel the difference in my muscle tone and I feel super energized! I'd love to see a corresponding drop on the scale!
