i started cutting at the beggining of october and i have so far lost 35 pounds. i began at 205 and am now at 170. my fat loss has slowed very much and im pretty much at a plateau, i honestly dont think i can lose anymore weight. im 5'7" and at 170 pounds i still look fat. for my height i think i would have to be at about 150 pounds to look lean, im 22 years old. i would love to drop my bodyfat level to where i can see some abs, but i dont think i can get past this plateau.
my diet was 1800 calories a day. all meals were protein and fat except breakfast, six times a day, taking HOT-ROX, and fish oil and flax seeds, and Surge Recovery. i logged everything. i have now stopped taking HOT-ROX since i ran out and i was on them for a while.
i was lifting free weights 3 times a week with heavy weights and sometimes i would do some burpees afterwards. only whole body workouts with compound lifts. i would also have 2-3 cardio days in which i would do some complexes and burpees afterwards.
i have never done max lifts but using a max rep calculator and my first work set i came up with these numbers.
incline bench press- 197 lbs.
deadlift- 300 lbs.
squat- 257 lbs.
chin ups, pull ups, dips- i use just my bodyweight and the most i can do my first set with good form are 5-6 reps.
here is what i have changed so far. now im only eating 3 times per day. 1800 calories everyday, workout days are 1800+Surge. protein and fat meals every meal except breakfast and pwo meal, which is chicken breast and a whole lot of brown rice, or potatoes.
what should i do next? should i stay at this weight for a while? bump my calorie intake a bit?
