    Because your eating far to little to burn fat, and your gaining to much muscle which makes you weigh more.

    Try this. I lost 48 pounds in 2 months!

    Get a Total body cleanse kit. I tried to Master Cleanse Pre-made lemonade kit. I got a good cleanse... and lost 13. 5 pounds. If your looking to diet I recommend it as a start off for weight loss.

    Breakfast - Fat free yogurt, 2 Pce of Bran Bread with Honey, 1 orange and 1 cup skim milk

    Snack - 1 whole fruit or veggies

    Lunch - Whole wheat sandwich, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and turkey breast - NO SAUCES!

    Snack - Fat free Yogurt and vegetable.

    Supper - Chicken, Beef or Chicken. But no refined sugars.... Anything white is bad - White sugar, White Bread, White Rice, Pasta of any kind..... It's carbs and turns to fat.

    Don't eat after 7 - Drink 9-11 Cups of water daily... NO SODA... No artificial juices.

    Also increasing water in one month can make you lose 5 pounds.

    Drink a cup of Green tea before bed.. It burn and shrinks fat!

    Do this 3-5 times a weeks:

    Jumping Rope - moderate

    180 calories in 15 min

    Bicycling - stationary

    357 calories in 30 min

    Running -

    363 calories in 15 min

    Exercise equals muscle and muscle is heavier and bulkier. If I were you, I'd look into yoga. And to be honest, only eating fruits and veggies and doing a cardio workout is not smart - you need more fuel to do those workouts and you are not providing that to your body. The body will start to turn on itself for energy stores and that is not a good thing. The less you eat and the harder you work out the more risky it is, and the more bulk you gain. When you run out of energy you are going to collapse. I also wonder whether you are retaining water as well.

    Don't devour junk meals, if you want to best provide you plenty of fats, which weighs not up to muscle mass, and does no longer have a rationale. Eat healthful, however simply extra. Try consuming 6 smaller foods an afternoon. Kind of like snacking among foods. Eat tons of well carbohydrates, protein, and well fat, akin to complete, wheat bread/pasta, fish (ideally salmon), and broaden consumption of dairy merchandise. This will support you reap weight customarily. In addition to that, endeavor to tone up your frame and to reap muscle mass. Have amusing and well good fortune!
