Hello Coaches.

Looking at my program, I think my weight loss has significantly reduced my metabolism. The exercise I did previously carrying the extra weight burned more calories, so even though I'm doing more now I'm burning fewer calories. I think I'm going to re-set Diet Power again and let it find my new metabolism rather than wait for it to keep decrasing my "budget" by 10 calories per day. I really don't want to add more exercise! Maybe I should look at the fast day?

I read this article:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_2806578.html
and found:
"A lot of patients ask if increasing calorie expenditure through exercise is preferable to decreasing calories consumed, Hensrud explains. "What's interesting is that to keep weight off, the research shows that physical activity is more important for that phase," he says. "But to lose weight, calorie restriction is best.""

So I have to face it and just cut back some more! I'll re-set tomorrow so I don't start off negative.
