Hi all

Ive been on a diet been 6weeks now eat 1550 cals on non weight training days and 1760cals on weight training days
ive had the diet checked on here
ive been doing 3 days weights and 2 days H.I.I.T and 2 days SSCV
I started my diet with the restricted cals and did not decrease them down but i did add more and more cardio.
its come to appoint where i dont think im losing much fat. ive lost 3kg in 6 weeks recently my shape has not changed...

    Those cals look very low for someone weighing 80kg... you may have gone into starvation mode because you're not eating enough?

    How would i know im in starvation mode?
     
    I try to listen to the body and at the moment i would say on the calories im taking my mind and training seems good?
    I have once tried reducing the calories and could feel a massive massive difference if i cut 20g carbs out...
    Hungry constantly uncontrollably and weak and tired hence ive stuck to the diet im on.. 
    I was looking to add CLA
    I have been told im low on fats
    For example I take 230g protein 120g carbs 40g fat on training days but recently my weight hasn't moved so thought why add more fats?

    If your taking in that little calories would stick to SSCV in order to preserve as much muscle as possible.

    Thankz for the advice guys
     
    I do unfueled AM SSCV at about 140BPM 30mins
    Should i Try increase this to 40mins?
     
    Reason why ive kept it to 30mins is to try not to lose muscle usually i lose muscle easily but im at weight now that's steady...

    SEEMS alittle low 120bpm

    This is how i calculated my fat burning zone...
    AGE 27 rest heart rate 60

    220-27 (193)- 60 = 133
    133x65%=86.4 (+60) =146
     
    I try to stick around 140BPM

    SSCV doesn't preserve muscle mass. Resistance training with weights does.
    Looks to me like you're under-eating & over-exercising. Too few kcals combined with too much cardio = disaster. See http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/fat-loss/why-big-caloric-deficits-and-lots-of-activity-can-hurt-fat-loss.html
     
    Lots of cortisol = bye-bye muscles + water retention. Chill!

    WOW
    Interesting Read..
    Its seems like it is the case... Now its just getting more and more complicated and confusing to lose fat...
     
    Training 3 days weights 4 days cardio...
    How many calories do i need to take in?
    Could do with a little help on this one...

    If you stop stressing over calories, cardio, calculations etc and chill a bit, your serum cortisol will fall and you'll probably get a "whoosh" of loss.
     
    Did I mention that you need to chill a bit?
