We used to have full on cheat days but she still wasn't losing weight, and I do still allow a cheat meal. For a long time her dinner was a burger or a steak and a potato and we just switched to double chicken in the past 2-3 weeks as it was the only calorie manipulation I still had up my sleeve while still keeping her satiated as starvation constantly worried me, and I know when I lost all my weight I was never hungry.
We were even carb cycling to keep her high to fuel workouts and lower on off days and we never worked out without proper nutrition and recovery beverages.
Actually when we started we did take girth measurements and although shes come down, I can't understand why it is taking so much longer and going so slowly compared to my own journey. Granted with her froma training point we started at ground zero where as I had probably 180 lbs of lean mass under my 240 lb fat frame when I did my big cut and was usually lean most of my life.
Still. What do I ask the doctor about her metabolism? Is there a test or something to see its rate of processing (sorry for naivety)
