I’ve been trying to lose 10 pounds of fat for a long time now…AND NOTHING.
I exercise 5-6 days a week…cardio and weight training the whole shebang; all together I work out for about 90 minutes-2 hours each day.
I eat clean, too!
Boiled eggs, whole wheat toast for breakfast. Sautéed shrimp with maybe some avocados, tomatoes hot sauce and feta cheese for lunch, a protein shake after or before the gym, a snack, rice, couscous or potatoes with chicken, fish or sometimes pork chops with all kinds if greens for dinner, a light snack before bed—green smoothie or some nuts.
Well, I can’t seem to be able to lose the fat! What am I doing wrong?
P.S. I take CLA, fish oil and l-carnatine and something called somatonin (RTN) for supplement. -Marley
Your food choices sound wholesome for the most part, though fruit & milk seem absent. The majority of your calories are consumed toward afternoon/evening. After looking at your portions of fats & starch, I’d recommend shifting your PM snack to morning. Remember, if you are not losing weight, then you need to eat less calories and increase your activity to burn more calories, it is as simple as that. Keep up the good work! – Debbie J., MS, RD
