    I did a short run on a quasi Velocity diet and posted some pics ... quick post on my results from a quasi V diet plan over the holidays

    Take a look. It worked for me and was fast too. You may want to give it a try and see what happens.

    if weight goes down but measurements stay the same you arent doing it long enough. Its easy to loose 3 lbs in glycogen retention and 3lbs even in digestive tract + water retention just by changing how you eat on a diet. so loosing 6lbs in 2 weeks can be just that. its when you hit weeks 5 + 6 and are loosing 1lb a week that you are finally loosing fat.

    Then get big! You get to eat all the time and never run. Sounds good to me.

    Ive been hashing it out trying to get down to single digit bf. Its a bitch! Time is the hardest part though. Ill tell you what you already know...stomach fat is usually the last to go. Keep hitting the gym, make sure you are getting your caloric deficit, and give it time.

    Start increasing your morning cardio before your bag session. If you've been doing this routine for a while your body is probably used to it.
    I did fasted cardio sessions in the morning for a while a few weeks ago, started at 20 min and incrementing 5 minutes every other day went all the way up to 60 minutes, and it worked. I also moved around the cardio machines, my gym has different elipticals and treadmills. A couple of times I used the cycling machine.

    I was doing 30 mins of consecutive cardio and found slow progress. It was not till I increased it to 45 mins that the real differences showed up. I think you should prioritize your time to your cardio...do cario 45 to 60 mins 5 days a week. Alot of cardio machines don't do very much...stick to running on treadmill 5-6 mph or the stepmill. It;s not possible to cheat on these machines. Results sure to follow.

    I switched my HIIT from elliptical to the exercise bike, and noticed a change after a few weeks. Maybe it was the change, maybe it was the fact that I HATE the bike, but it is trimming the fat...slowly but surely.

    probably just adaptation. doing much of anything for longer than 8 weeks and your body adapts to it
