Hi everyone. I thought I would make a post about this, being that I am completely stumped at this point.
My fiance is seemingly doing everything correctly but not seeing any results!
She is an avid exerciser and has always eaten good. For the last few years she was around 125 -130lbs at 5'4. She was a waitress up until about a year ago and because of the constant moving she managed to stay at that weight without too much flucation. After she graduated and got a real job she obviously doesnt move as much as she did as a waitress.
Thats not to say that she isnt active, she participates in very intense 60-90 minute group classes at our Powerhouse gym 5 days per week and goes for 3 mile jogs twice weekly. The classes are difficult and are fairly well rounded -I dont think training is her issue.
On to her diet. She eats great. I put together a diet plan for her that is 1200 calories per day. She follows it religously. Even measuring out one tablespoon of cream for her coffee.
*She gets 7 hours of sleep minimum each night.
*Her stress level is moderate. Demanding job, but not horrible.
The only other thing that comes to mind is that she stopped taking birth control over two years ago after being on it for over 4 years. But she didnt notice a huge jump in weight gain, its been slow and steady.
So what do we do? I am baffled by this. I know she's not cheating on her diet and taking in a max of 1200 calories. I know shes training 5-6 days per week. I know she's getting enough sleep.... what else is there? Knock her calories down to 1000 per day! That seems nuts!
Heres a typical macro breakdown of any given day:
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
