I'm getting frustrated now that my diet progress has slowed to a crawl. I'm starting my 11th week on my CKD, and while the first 6 or 7 yielded a nice 1.5 - 2 lbs. of weight loss (nearly all fat), the last 3 to 4 have been excruciatingly slow...if anything I've ramped up my workouts and morning cardio, but my weight has dropped only a half pound / week, sometimes even less, even a slight weight gain. I am, however, looking a little better in the mirror week to week, so I'm not overly concerned...just upset my progress has stalled.
I'm already down to 2,050 calories (weight: 196, bf% around 13 - 14%).
I'm a little wary of dropping my calories much more -- I started eating around 2,900 calories / day at the start of my CKD and have been dropping around 150 - 200 / week...but I've been around 2,000 / day for last week or two, and in my previous experience anything below 2,000 and I start losing muscle mass noticeably...any tips? How low can i reasonably drop calories?
