Hi! New to the forums and looking for some advice.
Ive been going to the gym now for roughly 3 months, I go 5 days a week (m-f) and stay there about 1.5-2.0 hours. I begin my workout with 1h on an elliptical, I do the random programs the machine offers. I keep my pace between 142-150 steps per min at a resistance of 9. I than hop on a treadmill and cool down for about 5-10 mins.
Afterward I hit up strength training. I wont bother listing everything I do, but I have about 10 different exercises. I do 5 m-w-f and the others t-th.
As far as supplements go. I take 3-4 scoops of whey protein a day, along with a mulit-vitamin.
Ive completely modified my diet. Intaking anywhere from 1700-2000 calories a day.
2pkg oatmeal w/ 1 or 2 scoops of protein
Wheat Sub sandwich- chicken veggies and mustard
After workout 8pm
2 scoops protein
2 chicken breasts boiled adding 1/2 cup salsa
During this time ive lost about 17 lbs. Most of which has been in the last month.
The trainer at the gym said the way Im exercising I wouldnt start seeing much weight loss for awhile, but after my body adapts to the weight training the pounds should start falling off.
The results thus far are acceptable, but id like to see if I could at least maintain the weight loss I experienced in this last month. Should I expect the weight to start falling off or do I need to modify my exercise routine?
Thanks for your help
