Why can't I loose my little belly pouch????? HELP

  • I've been working out HARD the last 3 months, burning between 500-700 calories a day and consuming 1200-1500 calories. I can definately notice how tone my body has become, even my abs but I have a fat pouch on my belly I can't get rid of! I eat a lot of fruits, veggies and lean meats and I weigh 126. Am I not consuming enough calories?

    Are you eating 1200-1500 calories a day, and then burning 500-700 of those calories you ate, for a total calorie consumption of between 500-1000 calories? If so, you are NOT eating enough. You need a minimum of 1200 calories to keep your body from thinking it's being thrown into starvation so it clings to everything it can.

      You might try just adding things to what you're already eating. I'm not sure if you're on the ignite phase, but if not, you can add a little cheese to things to bump up the calorie content. Almond butter is a good one too. Any nuts are great calories. I know it's hard to eat when you don't want too. I wish I had that problem. I eat when I shouldn't!

      Yes that's exactly what I'm doing, I've been trying to consume more calories the last few days but I feel like I'm forcing myself to eat when I'm not hungry.
