10 pounds left
I have about 10 pounds of body fat I want to lose around the mid section (hips, belly button region) Although you can't target where the body burns fat at I was wondering out if someone could give me some advice. I lost about 25 pounds by eating like 1200 - 1500 calories a few months ago. My maintenance calories are 2700, My BMR is 2050, I burn 250 calories 6-7 days a week from walking, and i guess 300 - 500 from lifting 5 days a week. I have gained a little muscle mass and do not want to lose it. I will however lose some of it if I can lose this belly faster. What amount of calories do you recommend I take in to lose the unwanted weight?

1200-1500 cals will defnitely have you losing muscle. I'd say 2000 would be a good place for you at the lowest - thats 11cals/lb. at 185. You know what's been working for me? Fasted AM HIIT cardio. I go to the track and sprint half of a quarter mile track and jog/walk the other half. Dermatherm target can also help with fat loss from the lower abdomin and the CLA is an excellent product as well.Back.... for real this time

I'd suggest upping your protein and keeping a clean diet, eating frequently, and getting plenty of good fats (especially EPA/fish oil). You can focus on gaining lean tissue and the fat deposits will diminish as you make gains. As your chest grows/muscle bellies expand, it will create a more desirable taper and pull the abdominal skin a little tighter. Basically, forget about the scale and focus on gaining some lean tissue without the overspill from a unclean diet.

you guys give me a list of clean diet foods? I will eat 2000 cals a day of nothing but the foods you say are best. When I eat 2500-3000 cals I feel fatter and can actually tell after 4-5 days that I added unwanted weight around lower ab area

It would be easier if you posted your diet... and then have others critique your current food choices.

Look into EPA fish oils, acetyl L Carnitine, Sesamin Oil and Raspberry ketones. 1200-1500 calories is far too low to expect any kind of gains in muscle mass. I would be eating at least 2000, incorporate some of these supps and do 15 minutes of HIIT followed by 45 minutes steady state cardio 3-5 days a week.
