Discouraged- Need Tips on how to lose 10lbs.

I am very active, I cheer, work out for about an hour or run about 4 miles a day 5 days a week. I eat around 1000 calories/day (mostly healthy calories), but I feel like I cannot lose weight no matter how much I try. I am getting discouraged. Advice as to what my next step should be?

Are you doing any resistance training? Mix in some intervals, too, so you're not just doing long cardio, but some shorter, high intensity "bursts" which burns more calories. As for the calories - without knowing more as to what "mostly healthy calories" means, it's hard to give suggestions. Carbs should come primarily from veggies and fruits, lean protein with each meal, and healthy fats.

If you are not consuming enough calories daily, your metabolism will slow down, minimum calories should be 1200 per day.

I agree with Lauren. Are the 1000 calories what you are eating or what you have left after working out?

If you're working out hard 5 days a week and only eating 1000 calories/day, you might actually not be eating ENOUGH calories. I've read quite a few studies and articles saying that if you eat too little, your body goes into survival mode and tries to hang on to everything you eat. You might find that by increasing the healthy calories you take in, you burn more.
