Calories: You must be eating fewer and or burning more calories to lose. Weight. Get the app Cronometer and enter all you eat/drink and exercise and it should become clear what the problem is. Discuss with your team. Don’t forget every one is different but you and Cronometer should give a good idea of where the problem lies.
