I run 30 miles a week 5x a week, and I feel like I am GAINING.
What's the deal!?
Now it's time for you to start looking @ not just what you eat *but* how much you eat. Ask yourself if you are really counting your calories. If you haven't already bought a food scale it's time to do so! I couldn't loose any weight until I started weighing everything & double checking the scale. Lastly, you must eat a high fiber breakfast cereal every day w/no fat milk.
double post sorry.
I don't think anyone else has mentioned this, but when you do the same exercise routinely, your body gets used to it and becomes more efficient at doing it. Which means you're not burning as many calories running now as you were when you started.
My advice? Do some other exercise! You need to switch it up. Try swimming, or biking, or speed walking, or dancing, or anything! If you really just want to run, go to www.runnersworld.com and check out the different kinds of running workouts there are. Running at one pace the same way every day is not going to help you with weight loss. Are you varying your speed at all when you run? Try doing sprinting workouts.
Of course, make sure you're eating properly, as well. Especially if you're recovering from and ED. Don't use exercise to purge the calories, take care of yourself.
Well, here's what I know!
In order for anyone to lose weight, he/she must reach the fat-burning pulse rate appropriate for his/her age! This can be calculated using this equation:
(220 - your age) x 0.8
and you must maintain this pulse rate result for at least 20 minutes 3x a week!
If you are just jogging or running for fun, and not reaching your "Golden number" you'll be hungry and asking for food more..
this is what i know!
