I run 5 miles a day at 7 min miles than workout with p903 i do the lean and mass program and I also do pox2 after that. I finish my wrokout with 30 min tracy anderson toning . My weight has gone up. I do not eat a lot of fat no grease foods and lots of veggies also I dont eat a lot of sugar. I dont understand why the scale has gone up. I dont eat more than 1700 calories a day.
do add to the comments: do you have a way to measure your body composition rather just looking at the numbers on the scale?
A further contemplation is that you may not eat enough, or not enough of the right ingredients. I had the good fortune to attend Len Kravitz’ session on nutrient timing at the last IDEA Personal Trainer conference. I found a research link http://www.unm.edu/~lkravitz/Article%20folder/nutrientUNM.html which is heavy on science but gives some concrete advice on the what and when of nutrient timing at the end.
I want to build on Sue’s and Janet’s comments and say that stress and lack of sleep can also impact your metabolism, which would thereby impact weight gain/loss.
Have you measured yourself or done a body fat analysis lately? You may find that you may have a more leaner physique and it won’t reflect on the scale. I think of LoLo Jones who put on 40lbs of lean muscle through her intense olympic training. She looks dynamite! Every body reacts differently to an intense training program.
But please take care of yourself and know that the scale is not the sole measure of fitness.
Sue gave a good answer. I would also ask why you want to lose weight? Is it pounds you are looking at? If you have gained muscle your scale may not change but your measurements will. Sue is also right about diet; if you really need to lose weight (and sounds like you are pretty fit) you may want to measure your food; most people underestimate what they eat.
First I suggest a complete physical to rule any health issues out.
It sounds like you are not allowing your body enough recovery time. This is of utmost importance.
Over exercising will eventually lead to either injury or burnout.
I suggest changing up your workouts and limiting it to one hour a day.
As for you diet, I suggest tracking on my fitness pal to take a real look at what types of foods you are consuming.
You say you don’t eat a lot of sugar, but there are many foods that contain hidden sugar.
Also keep in mind, the scale is only one way to measure.
