Our expert says:
Seeing that your present BMI = 21,6, you are certainly NOT overweight as this is the ideal BMI for adult women. If you are doing so much exercise then it is essential that you have an adequate intake of carbohydrates. Carbs are the best source of readily available fuel and you may know that the cyclists who participate in the Tour de France obtain up to 70% of their energy from carbs. If you don't eat sufficient carbs you won't have the energy you require to sustain your strenuous exercise programme. So concentrate on eating more carbs and less fat (the nuts and muesli which contains nuts, meat, etc). Basically your food intake is reasonable as reflected by your excellent BMI. One possible reason why you are not losing weight is that muscle tissue weighs more than fat tissue and you are probably developing plenty of muscle tissue at the moment.
