For the past 6 weeks I've been working on losing body fat, and I haven't really seen any serious results yet. Yea I know it takes a while to see results, but it does kinda discourage me. I've been sticking to an 1900-2000 calorie diet to lose 2 pounds a week. Several people on these forums have told me that's too few calories, so might that be one reason I haven't seen any results? I've been cutting down on carbs, and also making fat and protein a third of diet respectively. I've been eating fruits, vegetables, tons of chicken, turkey, whole grain cereal, yogurt, almonds, milk, granola bars, etc. A lot of this food is organic. I have like one or two cheat meals a week, but nothing to bad mostly mexican food. I've been lifting weights at least 3 times a week following a workout my friend gave me. I didn't really do cardio for the first month, but for the past 2 weeks I've doen cardio at least 3 times a week (just 30 minutes on the treadmill). I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong, or that this isn't good enough. AM I doing something wrong? If you any need any stats or other from me, please ask. I'm 5'7, 160 lbs, 19 yr old. Any advice will really help thanks!
