    A couple of other things.
    1. Even if the deficit is small (200-300kcals), an extended period of this will usually result in a dip in thyroid and test numbers and, subsequently, BMR. As you lose weight, your BMR actually lowers since it'll require fewer calories to maintain your current weight.
    2. Simple water retention from imbalanced electrolyte consumption could result in subcutaneous water. Each pint of water that you hold is ~1lb.

    Thats my point, i was never in a deficit for an extended period. IE 3 days low 1 day high, and so on. but still keeping my 3500 cal weekly deficit.

    I've been working out 6 days a week. Doing single body part splits. Mon-chest...tuesday-shoulders/traps.....wed-back....thurs-bi/tri...Friday-legs. then start over after 1days rest.

    Sets are always warmups, then heavy weight for 8-10 finishing off with high volume isolations and supersets.

    Cardio-LISS for 20-30minutes after my workouts.

    Diet has been pretty good except for an occasional night out drinking some beers. usually loooks something like this
    Breakfast- 4eggs 2 toast or sometimes just a 50gram protein shake

    lunch- tilpaia and greens with sweet potato

    dinner usually chicken or more tialpia
    i average 2500 cals, sometimes less sometimes more but def nothing over 3000 cals

    Supplements- Alphamine @2.5 scoops spread out, erase@ 3caps spreadout and shift @3 caps spread out

    The only thing ive really noticed from the alphamine is increased heart rate, somewhat uncomfortable. Increased sweating, and a mild increase in energy. (edit) also appetite suppression has kicked in these last few days.The thing is that it makes me want to workout but my increased heart rate makes me tire faster.

    I know i should track my calories more closely, but i figuired even if i were at maintenance the alphamine, erase and shift would take care of at least a pound lost a week.

    Should i lower my cals...increase my cals? Does alphamine take a couple weeks to start working? Any help is appreciated.
    The thing that sticks out to me is "i know I should track my calories more closely". Track your calories. Unless you have a food scale and you're using something like myfitnesspal you really have no idea how many calories you're taking in. Fix that and you'll lose weight

    If it's that high of a deficit per week, then it's an extended period. That still averages out to a 500kcal/day deficit.

    Perhaps you're becoming too concerned with just the scalar weight instead of body composition, which will give you a more accurate idea of what's happening.

    No i don't believe so, although i do watch my scale weight, i also watch the mirror and measurments. If i see changes in either one i know im doing something right. I wasnt seeing results in either. However i am now. Thanks for the help, I'm on the right track now and I'll keep your advice in mind.

    Supplements can help and I think Alphamine is one of them. But the next supplement that lets you eat over maintenance significantly and lose a bunch of weight will be the first. Diet and exercise remain vital to body composition success. Low carb diets help me lose more weight than anything or a cycling low carb diet.

    quick update. I'm at 217 and abs are becoming visible, which leads me to believe I'm adding a tiny bit of muscle and losing weight. I started anabeta a couple days ago and my appetite has increased more than the alphamine can control, but its ok i needed to be eating a little more anyways. I'm really liking this alphamine run so far. Probably going to buy another and make it a 8wk run.

    If you are not losing fat (weight is irrespective) then drop your calories until you start losing fat.

    If your weight stays static but you look leaner then you will be losing fat whilst building muscle i.e. 'recomping'.

    Let us know how you get on.
