I don't know what I'm doing wrong! I've been trying to loose some weight. I've been working out, trying to watch more carefully what I eat, although I suppose there's always room for improvement. I work out (cardio) for 30-40 minutes M-F. And here's pretty much what I eat on a typical day:
Breakfast: Coffee, pinch of sugar
Protein bar (15 g protein/ 7 g fat /210 cal)
Snack: Most of the time is an iced mocha with non-fat milk
Lunch: Protein shake made with protein powder, soy milk, fruit (1/2 cup) and ice, blended. (The protein powder has about 2 g fat/ 90 cals)
Dinner: Small portion of lean protein
about 3/4 cup of veggies (no butter)
and sometimes a side like brown rice.
Anyway, I started working out in May, and have GAINED 6 pounds! And trust me, it's not 'muscle gain'. I had some bloodwork done recently, so I don't think it's thyroid-related or anything either.
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?!
Muscle weights more then fat..You should be looking at inches lost..More then pounds lost.

I think that you need to change some things up. First you need to cut the coffee. You can replace it with something that is just as satisfying and healthier for you. For example I drink Spark instead. Instead of protein for breakfast and lunch. You should have a meal replacement and then you can have a protein for a mid-morning and afternoon snack. Your dinner you are on the right track. It sounds like your body is holding on to everything it takes in. You need to get your metabolism going.
