Background: 19 y/o female, 165 lbs. Lift heavy (for me) 4-5 x week, cardio 4-5x week for 30 minutes. I’m sorry if this is a stupid post.
I’ve been eating between 1250 and 1300 calories a day, steadily, for the past three weeks.
I typically get 120 g of protein, 80 g of fat, and another 80 g of carbs (thereabouts, those are estimations). Most carbs come early in the morning (yogurt), and post-workout. Protein is generally from fish, whey, and occasionally chicken (plus dairy, like CC). I’ve eliminated soy protein from my diet.
This is divided up into 6-7 meals/day, plus I drink a lot of water, and take a multi + fish oil + Power Drive (before workouts, occasionally). I ‘cheat’ 1 x week, usually a meal of pizza or something. It’s usually nothing enormous, and brings my daily calories up to about 1800, instead of 1250.
My goal is to lose another 20 lbs. My weight loss has dropped off steadily, to less than 1 lb/week.
Am I eating too many calories? Am I not eating enough? Should I just be more damn patient?
I’m asking because I want to make sure I’m not totally screwing something up, or that there’s something obvious I’m not overlooking.
…again, I’m sorry if this is a stupid question, I just don’t know if I might’ve forgotten something important.
I’m having my wisdom teeth out on 12/22, but I was thinking I’d post my nutritional/training log for a couple weeks or so, to get some feedback. Maybe someone can spot a ‘hole’ in my diet or training which is impacting my results.
