i have been doing this for about 2 weeks now. and my weight is still about the same. it keeps goin 1-2 pounds up and then down. I do workout, about 15-30 mins each day. and when i lose weight i lose it in my upper body, but not my lower body. and i just dont like the way i look. i have a big behind now. it doesn't look good at all.
what should i do,
I've heard it said (and once by a physical trainer at work-out) that you can't decide where your body will lose fat first. I've also heard it said that it comes off inversely from how it put on. In other words, the newer fat would shed first, and then the older fat. Whether that is true or not, I have no idea. But over the past few years, I found that my upper body doesn't lose as quickly as my lower body. I'd like the bingo wings to disappear first, but the flab under the upper arms is about as stubborn as the boobs are to reduce, which is frustrating. But I'll be glad just to lose fat.
If your weight is not reducing yet, or if you are not getting much appetite suppression, you might make sure you are taking enough oil (if that is your chosen tasteless calorie method). I believe for a general approximation, you multiply your weight by 2 and divide it by the number of calories in a Tablespoon of oil, which is usually 120 calories. That is about how much you would need for your particular weight, but the SLD book recommends not consuming over 400 daily calories of the stuff; if needed, noseclip regular food or spice your food with tastes you usually don't have together so the brain/body doesn't recognize it immediately as a calorie source. I've found that the longer I have been on the oil regimen, the greater the appetite suppression has become -- also taking it in one dose late at bedtime or early in the morning helps (my dose is 3 Tbs daily for my weight).
I've not yet gotten strongly into my exercise routine -- just started on weight resistance and I also walk 2 - 3 X per week. I understand that progressively intensifying the weight over short intervals is more successful for weight loss and strength. One of the SLDrs in Australia, I believe, has had recent posts on the forums about one method of interval training in the news.
