I'm female, 5 foot 5, and about 122 lbs. I'm seeking to cut down my fat percentage, but nothing I seem to be doing is getting the right results. I work out at least 5 days a week with 30-60 minutes of cardio each session combined with weight exercises (using 20-25lb dumbells, 3-5 sets of 6-10 reps, depending on the exercise).
My workouts are primarily first thing in the morning, and preceded by 1/2 of a FINiBAR and followed by a quarter serving of Surge. I maintain approximately a 40/30/30 protein to carb to fat ratio, with most of my carbs consumed around my workout times. Protein of choice is Lowcarb Metabolic Drive, lean turkey, cottage cheese. I do have 3-4 meals a week that are cheat meals, but nothing crazy. A typical day for me is:
45 minutes of cardio
15 minutes of weights
Nonfat greek yogurt + granola
Metabolic Drive (1 scoop)
Cottage cheese + turkey
Cheese strick + turkey
Dinner of lean meat and plain salad, dry.
Again, 3-4 cheat meals a week. I am strong and in great cardio shape - for a non-athlete. I'd guess I have a 33% body fat percentage. What the fcuk?!?!?!? I'm not looking for a drastic change, simply to get the weight down closer to a steady 115-118 through fat loss. Thank you for any help/direction you can give.
