    when i hit a plateau last year i reduced my carbs and it worked. i believe there is something called "carb cycling" that means varying the amount of carbs you consume throughout the week. so you could try that - like by leaving out the pitta bread and eating more protein & fats. substitute high-carb foods for foods that have a mixture of carbs, protein & fat. that's just one suggestion. the others here will probably have better ones.

    add more cardio

    40 minutes pre breakfast 3 -4 times a week

    do that for a month

    then carb cycling comes

    why pre-breakfast?

    i've read about how if you exercise before eating in the morning you'll burn fat instead of the carbs you've eaten for breakfast but i've also read a few counter-arguments for that. also, when I tried it it made me feel really sick.

    When i diet i do cardio everyday, once a day at first then up it to twice a day.

    Id say increase your cardio to everyday mate. Make sure with the pre breakfast cardio that you take some glutamine about 5 mins prior, eg on wakening. Get back and have 15g whey then wait a further 20 mins and have your breakfast.

    why pre-breakfast?



    It helps to speed up your metabolism for the day so you will burn more carbs fat etc troughout the whole day rather than if did cardio lter in the day.
    I think thats correct im sure sombody will correct me if i am wrong

    get big or die trying

    The theory is that blood glucose levels are low first thing on a morning, allowing you to tap into your fat stores fairly quickly and get into lipolysis.

    If the intensity is low enough to burn fat and the rest of the diet is nailed on for fat loss, it's a great way of losing fat.

    ive been doing 40 minutes of brisk cross country walking first thing on empty no whey, no fat burners, no glutamine, then having whey in water and oats/weetabix afterwards or if later in the day i do a session 2 hours after a pro/fat meal, seems to be working well so far.

    doing 3-4 sessions a week now on top of carb fuelled walking at work.
