Hopefully you are also weighing your food for increased accuracy.

Some people take longer than a month to START to see any difference, but that doesn't mean that nothing is happening and you aren't benefiting from your efforts.

There are a myriad of Weight Loss articles in this link - I am sure that there will be some that will help you on your way.

Hi - as already asked, how long have you been doing this? If it isn't very long, AND the exercise is relatively new, then you could have lost body fat, but gained muscle, so altho' the scale hasn't moved, it doesn't mean that what you are doing isn't working.

Also, I am wondering if you are a male? If so, then you are likely under-eating which can impact on weight-loss and ensuring you get all the appropriate nutrients that your body requires.

SP recommends a minimum of 1500 calories for a sedentary man, but you go to the gym so you aren't sedentary.

The other thing is, you don't have very much weight to lose, and that slows things down quite a bit.

What range did SP give you?

I also endorse weighing all of your food if you aren't already. I have done this for many years, for increased accuracy, and entered it all into the Nutrition Tracker. This is what enabled me to tweak my food so that I am within my various recommended ranges. For fun I used to guess the weight of food and then weigh it. It is amazing how *out* we can be, and if you are talking about some higher calorie foods, it can make quite a difference to what we actually consume, and what we think we consume.

This link explains how to work out your needs. Also, ensure that the information you entered when you joined is accurate. Even where it comes to gender. There are many women who have checked 'male' and vise versa www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_art

How long have you been doing this? If its been under a month, you might just not see results on the scale due to fluctuations related to fluid retention, etc.

If you've been doing this for quite a while, I would consider re-evaluating your calorie intake. Are you measuring all your food exactly? Weighing it exactly? Or approximating? Sometimes if we "eyeball" the serving sizes and track the food incorrectly, we can think we're eating 1500-1700 calories a day but really be consuming 20% more than that. Especially if you approximate condiments, oil, etc.

Basically make sure you're tracking your nutrition super-accurately, and keep up the exercise! You will get there in time.

Hi. I have been working out 3-4 days a week and following a high protein low fat and carb diet and not seeing any results on the scale. My protein goal is 190g, carbs is 166g and fat is 53g. Total calorie target is 1900 which I do not exceed. Averaging around 1500-1700 a day. I am 6’5, 240lbs. I stay under my numbers every day. It’s so frustrating. I am putting time in at gym and eating better and no weight loss. Help.
