Keep moving around: Anything that uses energy (calories) will help one lose weight, as long as he doesn't eat or drink back more calories right after the activity. Examples: if walking, take a longer route; use stairs instead of elevators; take multiple trips to and from the car when unloading groceries; park a block from school and walk there with the kids; at home, skip dessert and go walk around the block instead.

Reached a plateau: If you lost significant amount of wt fast, your body may have reached a plateau, at least for awhile. Your body needs time to adjust to a new equilibrium and if you are persistent, likely u will start to lose some more. Doing 1.5hrs/day 5-6x/wk is fantastic. So, keep it up. If can't lose more with good discipline, consult doc. Good luck.

Cardio Mix: This varies from person to person. If you have adipose tissue to lose (not everyone does), then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume.

See dieticain: You need to speak w/ a dietician . Most hospitals employ one. Metabolism varies among people. You may have to " work out " 4 days a week and eat smaller portions. A dietician can guide and help you.Also, u have to be disciplined in your desire to lose weight. If u follow their reccommendations, the weight will eventually come off. Good luck!
