    quick weight loss,


    here is the deal in december i was 254 and now i am down to 220. i am having a hard time loosing the last 20 pounds. work out 6 days a week go hard like none other, get 30 min cardio 3 times a week and an hour 3 times a week.

    just started last week dropping calories down to about 1250-1400 last week. protien still around 180-200g per day.

    ya'll think thats healthy as long as i keep the protien up or what. just want to get some feed back.

    This is a common occurance, alot of people lose the first 20-30lbs no problem on a diet then cant figure out why they cant lose the last 20.The reason you cant lose those last 20lbs is because your eating too few calories. Your metabolism has probably grinded to a screaching hault lol. For a man over 200lbs, 1250 calories is a starvation diet, and if you've been below 2000 calories per day for too long your body has most likely compensated and substantially lowered your metabolism.

    More Food - only need a slight caloric deficit, shoot for fat loss not weight loss
    Compound Movement Circuit Training with Weights 3 or 4 days/week
    HIIT 5days a week
    A brisk walk everyday

    SEARCH this forum for info on weight loss, there's tons of great info already here.

    You aren't going to lose any weight by eating that little.

    im around 250..... im losing weight slowly at 2800-3000 cals a day (dont get me wrong alot is muscle mass)... ive been up and down with my weight all of my life... trust me... keep ur cals up and learn to only eat small portions. keep up ur cardio and u will definatly see more results... nothing in life comes easy... dont think of it as a goal... but as a lifestyle change.

    Mix your diet up. TONS of Fibrous Veggies and some fruit. Drop the rice cakes, except maybe at a post-workout meal, for any other purpose they're crap (high glycemic index with no real nutritive value). Same goes for quaker oat bars - they're cookies with a different name.

    I prefer whole milk - the fat slows digestion and milk contains healthy fats. Get some beef in once and a while too.

    Seriously, up the calories. A few hundred a week for the next few weeks until you hit about 2500. Search around the net, there're tons of websites that will calculate your daily caloric needs. Keep carbs low in evening, except for when working out at night.

    Again, search the forum. This has all been covered plus a whole lot more - great info just waiting to be found.

    half the problem is that ur cutting ur calories too low. with that much exercise and that little amount of nutrition your body is never going to recover and it's going to start eating muscle because that takes more to preserve. go on a low carb or the anabolic diet to drop them last few pounds then go to eating a well balanced healthy diet.

    I'm of the opinion that your body gets used to cardio too....I have no idea what you're doing but if it's the same level on the same machine for the same time, you should switch it up.

    I'm doing krav maga now, man lemme tell you this shi#t is no joke. You may wanna consider joining something like that for a change of pace.
