I've been trying to shed a bit of fat for about 2 months now. I have to lose about 10lb I would estimate. Just a layer covering muscles and some stubborn love handles.
I follow a 2000 cal/day diet high in protein (150g approx) along with complex carbs and healthy fats. I admit I slip up here and there and overeat but the majority of the time I'm good and fat seemed to be coming off.
However my progress seems to be slowing down a bit. Now this caloric intake has to started to keep me full and satiated which is something that wasn't happening when I started this diet.
Now I'm wondering if this is just me adapting mentally or does this mean I need to take it up a notch!
Help would be massively appreciated!
P.S I lift weights 6 days a week. Total body compounds but I focus more on an area each day. This is followed by either a 30 min run or a 30 circuit training workout involving jump rope and body weight exercises. Heart rate remains fairly high (150-160) throughout the cardio session
