Can’t Gain or Lose Weight

I decided to do a little experiment lately, and eat whatever I felt like for at first a few days. And now it’s been a couple of weeks.

This meant I was eating things like huge servings of brownies, half pizzas, and giant burritos… in the same day.  I feel like I’m averaging 2000-3000 calories per day.

So I’ve only gained about 4-5 lbs.  It’s like my body just can’t put on more weight than that.  This is gross to say but… it’s like I just go the bathroom more.  All the excess I eat comes out.

What is going on??

I would characterize my body as a “slim” Kardashian type right now (very curvy but not quite *that* big).

My ultimate goal is for a Megan Fox or Jessica Alba very teeny tiny but toned body.  So it’s frustrating I keep on plateauing when I’m about 5 lbs. away.

I’ll restrict my calories, zigzaging them to trick my metabolism, I’ll do lots of cardio. and weight-lifting (followed by whey protein as my trainer taught me to do)…

With so much effort, the weight comes off so slowly.  And I tone up slowly too.  Argh.

It’s like I’m meant to be this size, which is slim enough.  But not international-supermodel-class slim.  And I demand more out of life than to be just “OK” slim.  I want to be the best.

I must just have to do a low-carb style Perricone anti-aging diet again.  The pounds really melted off last time I did that.  But I wasn’t happy without my regular fruit and dessert fix… and too much salmon got gross.

    I’m surprised I’m the first to comment on LovelySexyBeauty’s Giant Poops.

    I use the recipes from Perricone Promise all the time — I especially love the tofu chili recipe (without the turkey).

    I read what you wrote about not eating fruit, and I seem to remember him advocating the benefits of cantaloupe — especially for the skin. My skin always looks so much better when I follow his general advice!

    It sounds like you look wonderful. I hope you’re not stressing too much over calories — I read a ways down your blog and looks like you’re getting married soon. Congrats!

    Oh, is that the newest Perricone book? I’ll have to check it out! I recall the cantaloupe tip too, along with macadamia nuts. Just taking fish/flax oil has done wonders for my skin… the max. dose seems to help most!

    And thank you… yup I’m very very happily engaged! 🙂 (Wedding planning stuff is just venting 🙂 )

  4. Rebekah Says:

    I’m not sure if it’s the newest book — I got it a few years ago for all the healthy recipes and ideas inside. Fish/flax seed oil is another good one! I take fish oil supplements because I often forget to incorporate flax oil into meals and such, and I agree that they do make a difference.

    Congrats again on the big day and happy wedding planning!

    No, no, no! Don’t restrict calories if you want to lose body fat!
    Eat primal or paleo and only eat when you are hungry. For the last few % points of body fat, reduce fruit intake and add exercise.

    Try this:

    If you are already relatively slim, add some Tabata or other HIIT workouts and ideally some strength-training (trust me: you won’t get big muscles as you lack the most important ingredient for muscle growth: testosterone).
