I exercise and eat pretty healthy, but I’m still overweight. Why?

Losing weight is really hard for many people. Since there are lots of reasons why people who have healthy habits can’t lose weight, it’s best to talk with a health care provider such as a doctor or dietitian about your situation. Your health care provider may recommend that you make some changes in your habits (such as eating smaller portions or exercising more often). Your health care provider may also tell you that your weight is perfectly healthy for you and that you don’t actually need to lose weight.
