I Have Real Difficulty Losing Weight. Might I Have A Slow Metabolism?
Most health and weight research shows that the majority of overweight individuals are not overweight because they have a slow metabolism, but because they eat too many calories and take insufficient exercise.
Research also shows that most of us underestimate the amount of food we eat and overestimate the amount of exercise we do.
If you are happy with your calorie intake and your exercise routine, but you are still not losing weight, keep a 7-Day Food Diary and check the results thoroughly. (For a recommended calorie intake click Calorie Needs)
If, after checking your calorie intake, you are still not losing weight, have a word with your doctor and ask his/her advice.
