Im 42 yo, 5'11", 263 lbs. I eat between 1200-1600 calories a day, no junk. I cycle 4-5 times a week ( min 25 kms/ 1hour)heart monitor says I'm burning about 1000 cals per ride. My weight loss is slow as a turtle!!! Sometimes only 0.5lbsa week/ 10 days. Any ideas why???

    That's quite a range of calories. What did mfp set for you?

    Ditto on are you weighing everything you're consuming?

    There are mistakes that people commonly make that cause them to not lose weight that we might be able to spot if you change your Diary Sharing settings to Public:

    hi, do you own a food scale and weigh everything?

    I usualy weigh my meat. Never my veggies, and for the rest i use mesuring cups. The pre package stuff is easy. I dont eat any junk food at all.My nutritionist gave me 1750 cals, but i put it down to 1600, somedays i hit 1600, but most days im between 1200-1500. I know the heart rate monitor is an aproximate guess, thats why i always shave off about 30% of what it says.

    Weight every single solid food that you put into your mouth! Measure or weight every single liquid. If you take supplements and/or medications weight the log them too. I found out that many supplements, medications, vitamins, etc have calories.

    It is very likely--almost guaranteed-- that you are eating WAY more calories than you believe you are eating. Tighten things up, and stick with it.
