theEguarantee:  Its good you got everything checked out!! Its just harder to lose weight for some people than others. I don’t use myfitnesspal anymore because there was a lot of misinformation on there and I couldn’t deal with some of the crazies who did extreme exercise/diet. I did want to say good luck with everything and reassure you that you aren’t alone when it comes to having to work harder to lose weight.

theEguarantee:  Have you ever tried the IIFYM (If it fits your macros) food approach? It’s super helpful because it doesn’t force you to “eat clean” 100% of the time, you can have your treats, or a hamburger and chips at a cookout, and its okay, you just tailor the rest of your food that day around it to make sure your body is getting what it needs. I’ve really enjoyed the freedom it allows and not feeling guilty after a “not clean” meal. 

My problem is I have a lot of muscle, but want to lose about 6 pounds of fat. I don’t want to lose muscle though. You are probably in a similar boat if you’ve been doing personal training 4x a week for 9 months. The IIFYM approach shows how to lose fat and not muscle, by making sure you get the protien you need to fuel your muscles, ensuring that when you lose weight it is fat and not muscle.

Check it out if you havent already: http://iifym.com/iifym-calculator/ this calculates exactly what you need througout the day to meet your goals.

ETA: This approach focuses on keeping your metabolism healthy, ensuring that you eat enough calories (so your body doesnt go into starvation mode and store fat on purpose). This makes it so you can eat more and still burn more calories. It also takes the desire to binge out of the way, because you get your treats whenever you want them.
