Where am i going wrong?

I am 6ft3 90kg , according to my scales i am anywhere between 17% body fat and 18.7% (****ty scales) .

I have been on a fat burning workout for 2 months now, involving short bursts of HIIT cardio (4 mins treadmill, 3mins bike, 3 mins X trainer).

Sandwiched in between each burst of HIIT is a circuit FB workout of 2 sets of 15 reps. I am always soaking wet by the end.

I do this workout 4 times a week with 1 or 2 days of HIIT / SSCV mixed cardio and 1 or 2 days rest depending on schedule.


Diet:

All my carbs are eaten before i workout, with any carbs post workout coming from veg (brocolli, spinach) and protein shakes (4g). I have 4 CLA a day, 3 omega 3 tabs (1000mg x 3). I have a fruit smoothie containing law fat frozeb yoghurt, banana and strawberry most days also.

Example diet:

Bfast: Porridge

Meal 2: Tuna on bed of salad + sweet potato

TRAIN

Meal 3: Protein Shake

Mealk 4: Chicken with veg

meal 5: Slamon with veg

Meal 6: Protein Shake / Egg ommellate (4 egg whites 2 yolks) with spinach and cheese

Problems:

The scales are not shifting at all. I mean really, i have not dropped 1kg of weight for like 4 weeks. I dont know why.

My daily maintenence is 3000cal and i worry that maybe my body has slowed its metabolism right down as i am not eating enough? or maybe i just need to go on some serious cardio to shock my body into getting into gear.


Any help would be greatly appreciated as i am tempted to get some fat burners to give me a boost but my mate is a doctor and is advising strongly against it.

    chicken = 1 breast roughly 200g , Slamon is about the same.
    Sweet potato - Half a handsized potato

    Protein Shake - 20g protein 4g carbs

    I have a good portion of veg , dunno how to quantifiy it, but its a quite a big portion.


    Workout

    4mins Treadmill, involves increasing speed every 30seconds froma brisk walk to a full sprint.

    Circuit 1: Underarm Pull ups --> Military Press --> Squats --> Bench Press (repeat twice 15 reps)

    3 min HIIT Bike

    Circuit 2: Cross over Bicep curl --> Dips ---> Bent over barbell row (repeat twice 15 reps)

    3 Min Bike or X trainer HIIT

    Circuit 3 : Inverted Smith Row --> Tabata Press ups

    Sometimes i throw in HIIT stepper for 5mins.
