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.
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.
Meal 2: Tuna on bed of salad + sweet potato
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
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.
