    Unhappy I Stalled out


    I been working out for 4 months now, i am 6ft, 236 pounds. When i started working out I was 267 pounds. I work out 5 days a week, play basketball in the gym 15-20 minutes and then run for 30 minutes to 45 minutes on the tread mill, then i do about 1 to 1 1/2 hours of heavy lifting. My breakfast everyday is turkey egg whites, lettece, and onions wrap. lunch usually is something with chicken in it, and protien drink, and dinner is usually whatever my mom makes me, either pasta steak, etc. I been stuck at 236 for a month now, i see myself putting more and more weight up, and im thinning out a little, but i cannot lose weight. I dont know what to do. I cut my calories, and i dont have energy go thru the day. I wake up at about 5am, get out ofwork at 3-330pm get out of the gym at like 630, and i goto sleep at about 12-1. someone help me

    first.....get more sleep!!!
    second.....good work on dropping 31lbs in 4 months!
    thrid......sounds like you are adding muscle. scale weight isn't always the best indicator of improvement.
    fourth.......when you cut your calories the lethargy is usually temporary. your body will adjust if you give it a week or so. tough it out if you want to keep losing weight. ....oh, and get more sleep!

    Listen to abercrombie here. About how many cals do you get in a day? How many meals? Could be as simple as getting more meals in.

    How many calories are you eating?

    Try absolutely pigging out for 3 or 4 days. Sometimes that will reignite the oven.

    It sounds like you are not getting enough sleep and food. Five hours a night is not enough with the amount of physical activity you're getting!

    One of the best things you can do for your weight loss is to have a cheat meal once in a while. For some it's weekly, others monthly, but giving your body a burst of calories and nutrients can help fire up your metabolism again. Remember, if you're not getting enough calories, you might slip into starvation mode.

    I know about starvation mode. I lived there for about a year while I went from nearly 400 lbs down to 200 lbs. Of course, I had the muscles of an 8 year old girl when I was 200 lbs, but still ...

    Regards,
    Matt.

    IMO 2000k calories isn't nearly enough for your weight. I weigh 205ish and am cutting with 2500-2600 calories. Use 12x your body weight to find a general guideline for calories you should be eating while cutting.

    No, you eat more to loss weight efficiently. If you nose dive your calories your body will bounce back once you're off your diet and you'll gain the weight back. Slow and steady.

    yes, plus the weight loss isn't a race so loosing 1lb a week consistently over 8-12 months is better than loosing 2.5lbs a week for 3 months and then stalling out, and feeling like crap the whole time. Also by being only 500-700 cals below maintenance, you do learn how you will need to eat the rest of your life to stay at that weight.
