    First, like I tell everyone else, do NOT focus on the SCALE WEIGHT - it is IRrelevant, and if you want to lose 15lb make sure that you do NOT have to lose precious muscle to get to your "goal" weight.

    Since you're relatively new to supplements, ignore what was said - and you do NOT need supplements to effectively and successfully lose fat, either!

    I recommend reading The 3 Keys to Fat Loss for comprehensive advice and information re nutrition and training for effective and successful fat loss - using only the BASIC staples. Trust me, it CAN be done.

    I read your recompadrol thread.

    ...I have added way more cardio into my routine and Ive cut my calories to about 1300-1500 cals a day (and starving) lol. Anyways yea a guy friend of mine who is also a trainer recommended I start taking recompadrol. Which I have my question is what should I be eating to be reaping the benefits of losing weight while on this supplement?
    There is no need to add in cardio AND restrict your calories. And that's quite low even for fat loss for caloric intake - be careful that you do NOT go into starvation mode, because if you do, your body will fight you and hold onto the fat you have, making it HARDER to lose. Just as an example, I am a lot lighter than you and I would still cut on at least TWICE that amount of calories!

    As far as using Recompadrol - following any nutrition plan targeted at fat loss will work. Because it is a nutrient repartitioner, it will be most effective if dose 15-20 minutes pre-meals that contain at least 50g of carbohydrates, but it will still work if the carbohydrates are less - and if less, then only use HALF the recommended dosage (see the product label for this).

    I highly recommend that you look into calorie/carbohydrate cycling - it's the best nutritional method for fat loss, IMO, and what the majority of competitors use (and look how lean they get).

    You are still well short of the calories you need for your body to stop holding onto fat.

    If you can't lose it, then your either not eating enough or doing too much and not giving your body a chance to recover.

    Don't pay attention to the calories the heart rate monitor tells you - calories burnt don't always correlate to heart rate during exercise.

    And trust me when I say that 156lb at 5'7" is FAR from massive - I have friends who are slightly shorter at that weight, with the weight not from muscle, and they are very slim and slender. If you want to be skinny, then you're going to have to lose some of your muscle - NOT what I'd recommend. But, ultimately, it is up to you - you WILL lose muscle in such a caloric deficit created by both the caloric restriction and addition of cardio.

    21.4% bodyfat is just under average (25.1%) for a female. You will definitely look a lot better if you lose some FAT - but JUST fat.

    Seriously, READ the article I linked you to in post #2 - if you follow the principles in that, you WILL lose fat.

    Eating more does NOT meant that you will gain weight or fat - chances are, you've slowed your metabolism down and your dietary practices have worked AGAINST you re fat loss. Trust me, I'm almost 50lb LESS than you, and I am losing fat on ~4,300 calories a day!

    And as I said, look into calorie/carbohydrate cycling.
