Why am I not losing weight?

I'm a 21 year old male and I've been trying to lose weight for months. I can't seem to lose more than 10 lbs. I lose a couple pounds, then somehow gain it back. I hardly eat and I exercise hard for 1-2 hours nearly every day, so what am I doing wrong? I'm eating fruits and veggies, no butter and I've drastically cut my starches.

    You're starving yourself, crashing your metabolism, so your body is holding onto whatever it can. You are exercising far too much and cutting out healthy fats isn't doing yourself any favors. Healthy fats, like salmon, avocados, butter, cream, and meat fats are NOT THE ENEMY.

    You have no clue how to combine nutrition and working out at all.

    You might be gaining muscle.

    You're not creating a sufficient calorie deficit. You burn calories by physical activity and gain them by eating. Eat less and exercise more.
