How An Entire Year Could Go By With No Fat Loss

Ask The Fat Loss Guru is a series of Q & A with fat loss expert, Tom Venuto. Tom is a natural bodybuilder, certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) and a certified personal trainer (CPT). I've learned so much from Tom through is e-book, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle. No hype, no gimmicks -- Tom shoots straight from the hip, and tells you the truth about fat loss.

QUESTION: Dear Tom: I’ve been going to the gym for the past year now, but I have only lost 2 pounds. I eat about 1800 calories a day and I do 3 cardio and 3 weight training sessions a week. I am 5 feet 5 inches and 128 lbs. I would like to be at 120 lbs. To lose 8 more lbs isn’t a lot to ask, but I’m really frustrated. I’ve been VERY persistent, and I rarely cheat except once each weekend, but at this rate, it will take me another 4 years for me to reach my goal! Please help! ANSWER: Don't worry, it won't take another 4 years! In fact, you can reach your target wt. within the next month if you start getting feedback, charting results and making some strategic changes to your program. First, it's important that you understand how a year could go by with almost no progress. Have you been doing the same nutrition, same calories, same cardio and same workout for the entire past year with no changes? If so, then you shouldn't be surprised if you've continued to get the SAME results (very little). If you do more of the same, you usually get more of the same.
