Want to know why you can’t lose those last few pounds? Its possible you are eating more than you think, sneaking food during the day, or drinking your calories.
Keep a food journal and write down EVERYTHING you eat and drink. You will be surprised how quickly the calories add up and where you are adding extra unnecessary calories.

A reduction of, or a workout that burns 3500 calories is a pound of fat lost.
