Hey guys...im in a little delema..its about calories and fat loss..

For the last 2-3 weeks, I have reduced my cals, and even started doing cardio (45 min.) at 6am, 3 times/week, and weights for 60min. 3 times/week. (HST Style)

I didnt do cardio before..

my current weight 216 = 3398 calories per day to maintain

I am eating roughly 1700-2000 cals/day + all the working out!

WHY AM I NOT LOSING ANY WEIGHT? its really pissing me off ..I bought the FITDAY pc software to track my workouts and food consumed..has helped a lot!

SHould i post my protein, carb, fat amounts? will that help anyone!

It is very possible that you are exchanging fat with muscle. Dont pay attention to your "weight" How are thos pants fitting? IMO, measuring your waste is one of the best berometers. I am a trainer, and I incourage all my clients to stay off the scale. at least if your sole purpase is to drop "fat". If your calories are low like you say, and your working out often. It's pure science my friend, it will happen. If your eating less calories than you are burning, you will lose fat, period.

If you are happy with the muscle you have, do higher reps, less time between sets, super sets ect. Keep your heart rate up during your lifting also. This will help to burn more calories rather than build new muscle.

Good Luck

reducing cals to much wil cause you to stall.
The body is a very efficient machine that will adjust to what ever you hand it. Keep it guessing so it doesn't adjust. When I lost a bunch of weight, I used a low cal diet with alot of excecise. I had to keep lowering the calories until I was eating once a day only. I lost it all but it was fat and muscle.
I am going to attempt to use Jgunns cutter diet with out the ergo aids. I amhoping this works. I was using the high fat approach and it seemed to work but all the fat was making me sick and causing me to dehydrate.

Do Not go any lower on your cals, starve your body = starve your metabolism. If you want the food you eat to be a bit more effective for burning cals, make sure your carbs are limited to low glycemic carbs, and better yet, complex, whatever you can handle. If you can stay with complex, your metabolism will get a bit more of a bump, and you will burn more. I did a body building show last year, and my diet consisted of well over 3000 cals a day. My Mondays would start with 300 grams of carbs, along with 250 + of protein. I lost 54 lbs in 12 weeks. I started at 240 and stepped on stage at 186, "no cutting supps, IE, clen, [URL= https://www.buy-steroids.biz/kalpa-pharmaceuticals-1271/thyroxyl-t3-25160.html ]t3[/URL], DNP, ect... all with diet. I was always eating and always full. However, my carbs where "soely" complex. Many BB's on this board will say the same thing, the complex carbs work like gasoline in a furnace. So if you truely want this to be the most effective, stock up on that brown rice and oatmeal. Throw in some yams, and watch that fat fall.

But like I said, stay off that scale

Check the BF, and go get yourself a measuring tape

It will happen,

I'm sorry but I have to ask as I don't know you and I'm new to this site. How intensely do you train? How long between sets? Do you break a sweat? Are you maximizing your time in the gym? Another thing, I would bump your training to at least 4 and possibly 5 days and make sure that cardio is 5 days until you hit your fat% goal. Notice I didn't say weight goal. Some will disagree but hear me out.....I personally feel that if I am in the gym on what would have been off days, I would keep myself in the "training" mode mentally and physically and that can carry you through your off days. I am talking about the mental temptation to cheat on your dieting as well as your body staying in a high fat buring mode physically. I wouldn't have cheat meals until I've earned them. Maybe twice a month.
This is just my opinion.

You don't stop working out because you grow old. You grow old because you stop working out.
