Hi..I am 5’2″ female. Have been on a diet n have been exercising for almost 6 months now. I lost 14 KGS during this time and now weigh 70 KGS. I eat around 1200-1300 calories and work out 6 days a week (3 days cardio and 3 days weight training) for45-60 mins. I had plateaued some time back, so I cut calories further and moved to intervals in my cardio sessions. I lost another 3 KGS after that but I have stagnated again..if I cut calories further I’ll go below 1200. I am already doing intervals in cardio. My weight training sessions are also intense. I have a trainer with whom I do squats, dead lifts, lunges/leg press, bench press etc. I have whey protein twice everyday. What more can I do to break the weight loss plateau… i’m stuck.. please help
While we have good intentions on this board with regard to giving advice, I think it would be inappropriate to give you specific information. It is not as simple as calories in and calories out, and we do not know your specific body composition and history.
Review of your specific food intake (all combinations of your carbohydrates, fat, and proteins) as well as your actual exercise program and intensity are needed. Both are not available to us here, and for the nutrition piece I would consider consulting with a Registered Dietician.
In addition, other factors such as hormonal imbalance, medications, and medical issues could also play a role in your plateau. Please consider a consultation with a Registered Dietician or doctor.
Best to you and good luck with the remainder of your program!
