    There are a lot of medical conditions that can effect weight loss. Low testosterone and low thyroid function are just two. Consult a doctor. He/she can run simple blood tests to find out if you are having any of these problems.

    Try a low-carb diet. The concept is your body burns carbohydrates
    before it burns fat so if your carb intake is reduced your body will
    burn the fat. I have used a healthier version of Atkins and it does work.
    If you follow the diet you won't be hungry and you will lose one pound per
    day as long as you're on the diet. It does work.

    It's more than what you eat, it's the amount and the timing of the meals.
    If you're not eating enough, eating too much, or eating at the wrong times, your body will say "fuck you" and be all stubborn and shit.

    This is actually quite a complex topic... we all have different genetic make-ups and our bodies react differently.

    To get it simple to start with... I'd go with Steve24's advice - good solid, simple plan but take it slowly.

    There are a few medical conditions but in reality they are incredibly rare... generally less than 0.001% of the population. I cannot tell you how many people have told me they have thyroid imbalnces at the gym. It's simply not the case. Genetics do play a role... for example... my heritage is Northern European, we have long cold winters so my body is programmed to store a certain amount of fat... I have to trick it to lower that.

    Start with Steve24's advice and don't eat any carbs at all after 6pm on any day. I think you'll see steady progress. (most people that tend to lose fat fast also tend to put it straight back on with in a few weeks after the diet so slow is best)

    Hope this helps. Let me know
