I was reading through this article and found it very interesting. You might be interested in some of the tips.

Inability to lose weight is the most common reason people see me. Its often a combination of small things that they are unaware of that is keeping the spare tire inflated around the waist. Ive listed the eight most common reasons you cant lose fat that are seen in my office. Eight Reasons You Cant Lose Fat
I am not promoting the site so feel no need to listen to any sales comments within the article. It is the tips that I am focused on.

Were there any tips that surprised you?

Anything you felt he left out?

I wanted to add a few comments on my thoughts and experiences with this.

One thing I feel he left out of this article is a reference to artificial sugar.

This is just my own experience and may not be related, but...

I have fussed with the same dang 20 pounds for a couple of years now. It's almost as if my body has some sort of set point where it wants to be and just wouldn't budge.

After reading this article on sweeteners, I decided to go ahead and get rid of my Splenda, and switch to Stevia. I also gave up my diet mountain dew and switched to the brands he mentioned in the article. Guess what? I have dropped 4 of the pounds! Yes, I realize it might not be related, but I think I am gonna keep doing what I am doing. Just sayin'...

Thanks for posting--this was very interesting. All I hear at home is "You are probably eating too many calories".
BTW, he does have another article on there under the "Freebies" heading that addresses artificial sweeteners.

Yup, it was that article that made me decide to make some changes.

It's fascinating how the human body works. I'll stay mindful of the proteins and fats I consume.

I am at one of those weight loss plateaus, thanks for sharing this article. Sometimes I have to hear things over and over again until I take ownership and do the right thing. To know and not to do, is not to know. I hate exercise, I don't know how to get over it, I think it is good for me, but I don't know it is good for me or I would do it more.

The whole idea of ketosis is my lazy way of losing weight. Sad, but true.

Green tea initiates insulin? What to do?

I also struggled with weight loss after I was diagnosed, to be honest I don't really like sports much so found it hard to find something I liked.

I found walking was my chosen exercise, seems a bit lame but I did it every day for 3 months and lost 3 stone.

There were times when I didn't lose any weight but persistance is the key.... easier said than done though !
