Reset your Metabolism
Hi - I want to start with I don't have an answer to your question - but maybe a tool for you to use for your problem.
I recently read a book by Jillian Micheals and watched a special of hers. The book is called Master your metabollism.
I have done so many hurtful harmful things to my body by using fad diets and counting calories. And yes the math says if you burn more calories then you consume you will loose weight.
But here is what I learned...our body - our hormones are not functioning properly because of all the additives, and chemicals that are in our foods. Not to mention plastic bottles that we drink out of and the checmicals that we clean with.
I hope that if you get a chance you will read her book and maybe find a solution in changing your heating habbits and styles...it is a little extra work but it is really worth it.
I wish you the best!
