Workout with no result?
It's definitely diet. If you are working out and eating healthy, you should be losing but, depending on the intensity of the work-outs you may not be burning as many calories as you think. Do you run to where you are sweating, can't hold conversations very long... I also think Interval training is the best way to burn fat and amp up your metabolism so that you are burning more calories throughout the day even after your work out is done. 1st, like other posters, monitor what you are eating, and then try alternating running and walking (the run should be where you are out of breath and then walking or jogging at a slow pace where you catch your breath but not completely recovered). Also, try switching up your routine. You may need something other than running. Try adding weights or do the interval one day, treadmill climbing the next, elliptical the following, maybe add in the rowing machine (good overall workout). You could also do a circuit training work-out which is what I do. I do circuit training with weights 3x a week so that there are no breaks in between plus light cardio. The other days I do heavy cardio and one hour pilates. I don't lose unless I watch what I eat - it's all about the calories in and calories out. I know it's frustrating which is why I'm always looking for the next best diet that will go along with my workouts. Just stay positive, keep up with working out and then watch your food intake and hopefully you'll start losing.

Fat, How much?
Do you mean 1000- 1200 in fat calories or total calories. Approximately, fat calories should be no more than 30% of your daily calorie intake and a most of that should be of good fats (to figure out total grams divide the 30% of your total calories by 9). I think it's way lower on this initial phase too of this diet so definitely getting in those oils is perfect. I try to add it when I can too. Plus, I hear it helps with weight loss to incorporate good fats with every meal. As far as total calories. I just met with a trainer and he was not happy that I was staying at 1200 calories but I will increase it in phase 2. I should be eating 1400-1500 a day to lose and about 1700-1800 to maintain.

Want to cheat
My kids are (well one of them) driving me crazy and since my husband is away, I tend to just want to eat if they drive me crazy and today, rainy, one of those days. I'm NOT doing it but I am going to make hot coffee instead, even though it's not allowed, that will be my cheat food/drink. It will make me feel good w/out making bad food choices. I'm going to stay strong!!!
