Our expert says:
It is excellent that you are doing 4,5 hours of exercise a week - well done. It is possible that you are building muscle tissue at the moment and that weighs more than fat tissue, hence you may be losing fat, but this does not reflect in weightloss. Ask your gym instructor to add exercises that target the tummy to your regimen (e.g. sit-ups, etc). If you still have not lost any weight after 2 weeks, I would recommend that you consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will have to assess what you are eating and compile an individual diet prescription for you.
