Jennifer DiDonato: Hello welcome to MadeFit TV. I’m your host Jennifer DiDonato and this is episode number 49, that’s right it going to be 50 next week, so I’m very excited. So thanks so much for joining us, I couldn’t have done this without you and in case you are just new to MadeFit TV, we are everyone source for health and fitness information and entertainment. So today it’s going to be something that is I’m going to be actually referring to lot of the viewers out there, I get lot of the your email of course as you know when I get lot of questions as to why certain things are going your way at the gym with your help and fitness program. You know if you are sticking with it since the New Year, I cant believe, I am still talking about the New Year, its not the New Year anymore it’s May but getting through all those months and maybe you’re still not seeing those results even after you set that goal of this is going to be the year 2009 that I’m going to do it and may be you are not really seeing anything so today is going to be our top 10 reasons, why you’re not loosing weight and this is in no particular order these are just certain things that may be you can benefit from or may be certain things you haven’t thought of that could be affecting your program. So to get started, we are going to start at number 1 I guess we are not going, what is that? We will go 10, start at 10 go to 1, because there is no particular order this is not one that’s may be better than the other. So alright starting at number 10 you are going to keep me on that though I’m get confused. Number 10, you could be eating too much, you’re eating too much and when I say that, that is because when you are exercising and you are thinking like, oh! Yeah I’m hitting the gym may be three days a week, you know when you are reading the treadmills, its telling you that you have burnt 400 or 500, 300 calories. You’re thinking, oh hey then I can eat that much more that I burned at the gym but a lot of times it’s not the case. Calories in calories out there are some conflicting reports on that as to if that is true or not but based on an overall weight loss program you want to make sure that you having a little bit more calorie expenditure than you’re actually getting in that you are actually taking in. So you could be eating too much. Perfect example 2 is may be with the gym that you are working out in, you’re working out with your friends and the instructors like, okay go downstairs you get protein shake, I want you to get this food in then I want you to get you know two shakes of protein Blah, blah, blah all of a sudden you are looking that like a 600 calorie shake its like wow, wow, wow wait a minute, you know your body need those nutrients to restore, replenish and refuel but I doubt you need that much may be you will if you are a huge body builder and you weigh may be 300 pounds but if you are the typical 150 pound women may be 35-years-old that 600 calorie shake could be putting you back even though its healthy you are overeating very too much, so want to watch that and make sure that you are kind of keeping a close eye at how much you are really burning and how much you are eating because this is not an excuse to just eat whatever you want. Taking it to number 9, the top nine reasons or the number 9 reason why you may not be loosing weight could be that you are eating too healthy; people think that pyramid that the government gives us that you need to eat so gosh I can’t remember. You got the dairy, you got the meat, you got the grains, you got the fruits, you got the vegetables.

So one cup of like what say peaches for instance, if you have a can of peaches a one serving could be a three servings that can contains three servings in there so you have to watch that you may think all that whole can is one servi
