If that works for you then that's great. The only way I was able to take off 136 pounds of excess fat was to count my calories burned and ingested and keep them in the optimal fat burning range.... you may not know this, but when we under eat too much, our body thinks we're in a famine and it slows calorie burn to a crawl..... It was as hard for me to eat enough as it was for me not to eat too much.... After two years of maintenance I quit counting calories, thought I could do it on my own, and I gained back 36 pounds so fast it hurt my head. I am now back to tracking all calories in and out at livestrongs daily plate. And I'm losing again. :)
What are you eating? How often? I knew a female professional body builder who had been overweight. I asked her what she did. She counted her calories burned, and ingested to keep her mean at 1350. On days she burned 500 calories that meant she had to eat 1850 calories. She ate fist sized carb and fist sized protein with healthy fats as often as it took to reach her calorie goals. I took off 136 pounds following her program and then put back on 30 so now I'm back on track and losing again. :) Oh yeah and the best thing about the daily burn is changing your workout daily keeps you burning maximum calories. It's perfect for me.
