Back for advise : Help
This is Alex again( I posted Morbidly obese thread and received tons of advise from you all: thanks).
It has been a month since I started my new life. As per your advise I have been having 6 meals a day. Lots of protein, carbs mostly from vegetables and workingout 5 times a week. Since my journey (started jan 1st) I only lost 4 pounds. I seriously didn`t cheat. Did HIIT workout 3 times a week and weight training the other two days. I am 5 ft 8, now 253 pounds and really struggling. For HIIT , I mainly do elliptical and some treadmill. Really upset. I want to be lean and cut and want to live a life like other people. Good news is my craving for food is down now.I have been taking Lipo 6x, which gives me more energy when I workout. I want to have 36 waist size from 42 inch. Your advise will be highly appreciated.

Hey buddy glad to see you making a step in the right direction to better your life. The main advice i can give you is give it some time it is a marathon not a sprint. I was also wondering how much sleep you get? THis can be a big part of your problem. ALso how much education do you have about lifting? Hang in there man!

Good to see that next step towards success!!!
You won't transform overnight it could take months no it will take months, allow a cheat meal once or twice a week, how many calories do you eat a day? Make sure to drink plenty of water!!! Sleep at least 8 hours a day!!!

I've been taking the Lippo 6-X for roughly 4-5 weeks now as well. I've had great success with the weight loss having started working out and eating healthy since the beginning of January. You mentioned you try to eat around 1600 calories a day, please give us a basic run down of your meal plans, what types of food are these calories coming from. That is a big key. If you haven't yet, jump on fitday.com and figure out your daily calorie levels and plug in the food your eating to keep a running total. If you don't have a food scale, GET ONE, biggest mistake is underestimating your portions. We started in a simular boat, 5' 10, 221 lbs when i started, still 5' 10 down to 206 lbs now.
Give us a detailed menu of what exactly it is your eating, and believe me, these guys on here will give you tremendous feed back that you can put to use.
Keep it up and don't expect results over night.

Well first you need to start by getting your diet and sleep in check. After this I would recomend circuit training to loose weight and I would also recomend lower weight high reps. Have you considered getting a personal trainer?

Lunch; chicken breast; 5 oz brown organic rice. salad(no dressing0

Based on your body size and not taking into consideration your physical activity, your body should be burning in the neighborhood of 2800+ calories. Your trying to cut that number nearly in half. Disaster. Try taking in somewhere in the area of 2400-2500 for a week or so. More meals, shakes & fruit. Then re-evaluate your situation and critique it from there and keep us in the loop.
