You aren’t seeing any results with your workouts, so why continue? What’s your goal? If it’s to lose weight then cut back on the workouts, do the diet and lose all your weight, then go back to your old workouts on maintenance and after the diet. Don’t keep doing what’s not working. I guarantee you are working out too much and not eating enough, putting you into starvation mode. Don’t over think the diet. Just do it as directed and get the results you deserve. Only changes should be made if you HAVE to workout, like for work. Sorry to be so blunt, but I can tell you are frustrated and I want you to get good results.
Steroids killed nine-year-old Lexie McConnell after only five and a half weeks. In August 1993, Lexie was diagnosed as having toxoplasmosis. The consultant put her on 80 mg per day of prednisolone. Immediately, she suffered severe side effects, huge weight gain , terrible pains, holes in her tongue and black stools. After nearly a month, at her parents' pleading, the doctors quickly lowered the dosage to 60 mg, 40 mg, 20 mg. In excruciating pain, Lexie was taken to a hospital, where it was discovered she'd contracted chickenpox. Four days later, she died. A few years later, another eye specialist declared that a simple course of antibiotics could have cleared up her infection. The above excerpt is from Ursula Kelly's site
