There's a difference between a friend jokingly saying you're fat and someone trying too insult you. Why exactly is it okay to still make fun of fat people, but taboo to make fun of someone's religion? A lot of overweight people really can't help it, like myself. I weigh 250 pounds, but I run 2 miles every other day, trying to get in shape. I don't eat fast food all the time, I eat like a normal human being, but my metabolism is very slow, so I con't really lose weight. So Does anyone have an answer to my question?

Just out of curiosity, what are your meals like? Portions and calorie intake.

5 300 calorie meals a day, about 2 are usually pretty high in protein.

The trick is to keep your heart rate elevated for extended periods of time, you don't actually start burning fat until about 20 min. into the workout.

I have the same problem. Are you just trying to lose weight or gain muscle?

Really just get in shape, noting imparticular.

Workout harder, try and convert the fat to muscle if the fat isn't going.

I have a p90x workout machine and the total gym at my house, I alternate using those. It really is hard, but I understand what you're saying. From a perspective of someone who's never had the problem, it make sense that you don't get it.

I understand entirely, it's just that some people are lucky and have extremely high metabolisms and others have low metabolisms and those that aren't lucky enough to be able to eat a horse and still look like they've been flown in from Ethiopia have to offset this by doing more work. Also, you could try decreasing portion sizes but increase the number of meals you have so that overall your daily calorie intake is the same, this may help increase metabolism, or try a stricter diet. To be honest though if you can't shift the weight it's nothing much to worry about if you keep the workout regime up because as long as you aren't solely eating junk food you're going to be pretty healthy and that counts for a lot. All in all just stick at it and maybe increase the amount of effort you put into weight loss, though this is optional, and you'll do fine.
