Can anyone help me find the problem here?
I agree with yduj57. I was also the BIGGEST skeptic of the low-carb thing and always thought "a calorie is a calorie". But I too read Gary Taubes, "why we get fat and what to do about it" in addition to doing extensive research on the low carb diets out there (b/c I WANTED it to be wrong b/c it goes against everything in the main stream media and social 'acceptance' of diet and weight loss and would mean I was dieting wrong practically my whole life). But the more research you do, the more convincing (based on straight science) the low-carb diet becomes. And since I've been sticking to 50-70g of carbs a day, my last 5-10 pounds have been coming off with MUCH greater ease and much LESS 'starving' feelings. I say give it a try before you knock it. I guarantee if you do (without cheating) you'll be surprised!

Getting closer to goal, need tips!
If you only have 20-30 mins, try doing one minute sprint, one minute comfortable jog. Each time you sprint, it should be faster than the last time. If you are pushing yourself enough, you shouldn't be able to do more than 12-14 mins of these. Also, try cutting your carb grams down to 50-70g a day. I'm currently losing my last 5 pounds too and the carb restriction is providing great results on the scale! (I also do a bootcamp M-W-F) which doesn't hurt. Smile good luck!

The best piece of advice that I can give you (and that I wish I would have realized a long time ago) is to lower your net carb intake to 50-70g a day (net carbs are your carbs minus fiber) and preferably the 50-70g of carbs will come from leafy greens and 1-2 small servings of fruit a day. I guarantee if you do this and keep up your workouts and don't cheat, you'll see the scale move down. **note: the first 2-4 weeks of cutting carbs will be the hardest b/c your body is adjusting and you'll most likely crave carbs and feel weak at times. But once you're through that time period you'll find your cravings diminish. You'll be less hungry throughout the day and your energy will increase. It took me 2 times to get through the carb withdrawal slump, but since I've been through it, I've been continuously amazed at the results (both on the scale and how I feel). Good luck! Smile
