This question was submitted through email from a young lady named Cassandra. What advice can you give her?

“I have been asked to lose some weight for ballet.

I weigh 130 pounds right now at 5’4″, and have been on a calorie count diet for the past three years. When I first went on the diet, I didn’t even excercise and I lost 20 pounds eating 1500 calories a day. I got down to 110 pounds.

Slowly, I gained back all the weight, and slowly I decreased my calorie amount, even though to maintain my weight, I should be able to eat a lot more. Now, I’m only eating 900 calories without exercise, and 1300 calories with a full day of dance and a mile run per day.

Why can’t I lose weight?”
