Q: I'm a 29-year-old girl, 169cm and weigh 60-61kg.

I gained 4kg in my legs in the last 6 months which I cant get rid of, despite working hard for 2 hours, 3-4 times a week (running, squat, lunges, weighs, steps). I reduced my calorie intake to 1400 per day, with no sugar, no fatty food, no fast food in my diet.

It is really boring trying to lose weight and nothing happening. Can you please help?


A: Yes, 4kg (8lbs) is a significant jump and I would highly recommend you visit a physician for a physical examination. Unfortunately, there is not enough information supplied in your query to support providing an answer or a theory. Your dietary and nutritional habits require examination.

Following the physical exam, I would recommend you seek professional support from a qualified personal trainer that can assist you one-on-one in developing a comprehensive fitness program and dietary supports to achieve the results you desire.
