Question: I am 5'6 and 125 pounds, I'm a 16 year old female but I want to weigh near 115 pounds. I used to weigh 117-120 pounds but lately my weight just slowly went up to 125 and won't go away. I will try eating nothing but fruit, not eating, and even eating often but nothing works. I also workout alot and do tons of intense running on the treadmill. Why can't my body lose weight? I don't know what I'm doing wrong considering I've tried everything. I'm not happy at this weight so I won't settle for it.

Your weight is fine...I'm your height, weigh 149, and I look great... However, to answer your question, to lose fat you have to burn more calories than you consume...if you aren't losing weight, then you are consuming too many calories for that to occur...you need to eat a balanced diet of lean protein, fruits and veggies, complex carbs, healthy fats, and lots of water...no skipping meals, no restricting calories, no cutting out protein or carbs or anything like that...

You can lose 5-20 pounds in a week, it wont be healthy and when you come off your diet your probably balloon to an even bigger size as your body prepares for another stupidly insane fast. You should only be looking to lose 1-2 pounds of fat any more will be due muscle waste (muscle also helps burn fat). You have 11 days to lose weight so you will probably be able to lose 3 pounds. My advise pop some diet pills and report back im interested in how much a person could physically lose within that time.

First of all, fruit is full of sugar and can get you fat. You should limit yourself to one piece per day. Second, being anorexic is moronic. You end up having no energy to even workout, get through the day, your metabolism slows down, besides for all the other health implications you are causing. As for cardio. What do you mean by "intense." Intense usually means you are in your target heart rate range for an extended amount of time. You should be exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes per day. The first 25 minutes really burns off any carbs or sugar you ate that day. I would aim more at a full hour though. After that time, that is when your body starts to break down fat. Additionally, results don't come over night. If you eat properly, exercise at least 5 days a week, it will still take more than a month. Patience

Try cutting bad carbs out of your diet. Avoid eating anything sweet, even fruit and cut back on carbs like bread and pasta. If you are on any type of birth control, that may be affecting your weight.

Just so you know..if you eat too much fruit (contrary to popular belief), the fructose (fruit sugar) is stored on your body as fat. You should be eating loads of vegetables.. that will only help you! you don't need to lose weight..you' going for the anorexic look? :(

I'm going to tell you how I lost about 45 lbs. I used diet pills, taken 2-3 times a day before meals, and ran 2 miles a day before bed after eating supper. I ate the best I could (healthy choice) or progressive soups in a can..and snacked between meals with healthy stuff when the pains hit hard!!!! Also started to drink diet pop instead of sugar pop, and cut down on beer drinking to about 6-8 beers per week and only on weekends. If you snack between meals during the day it tricks your body into burning fat all the time. Also if taken before meals the diet pills will help you feel more full so you don't get the pains as often. Oh yeah (avoid sugar and bad carbs at all cost). If you can maintain this schedule you should be good for about 40 lbs. in 90-120 days, especially if you are overweight like I was because the water weight will fall off, like 10-15 lbs. in the first 2-3 weeks.
