    I am chubby and have been so for a while, but I don't really lose weight! I don't eat much my diet consists of warm milk in the morning, then a can of lemonade or coke, and then nothing until dinner - and my dinner is normally a sandwich or pizza left in the fridge. I may also eat the occasional snack but that tends to be a chocolate bar or biscuits. I do 30 minutes of exercise a day yet I still can't seem to lose the pounds and was wondering if anyone had any advice???

    1200 cals a day
    1 hour's brisk walk 5-7 times a week

    Bob's your uncle.

    Speaking from experience, it works.

    Stolen from myself in an old post in an old thread:

    Reduce the amount of calories you're consuming. Exercise a little more if you want, although this isn't really necessary. Get adequate sleep. Drink enough water to make your urine turn a light yellow colour, or even clear. Have a lot of fiber. Prepare for a plateau. Whatever you do, don't go near a fad diet. Buy a scale. Set a goal for yourself. A 1-2lb loss per week is what's generally recommended, so base your goal on that.

    I can't remember why this article is interesting, but it's on my sig on a different forum. Too long for me to read now. I saved it as "just an interesting article" so it must be interesting for one reason or another!

    I think that's it for now. :borat:

    Try avoiding eating so much Junk food i.e. fizzy drinks, chocolate, biscuits, crisps. Having a can of soda a day is really unnecessary and you'de be surprised how influential it is in the long run.
