    Hey guys, I’ve been stalling completely in weight cut despite eating clean for months. Now there have been some small changes I’ve regularly made, diminishing snacking or accounting for it in my macros snd adjusting accordingly, but I can’t seem to lose the fat that I am trying to lose. I am at 240 with good muscle mass and I’m leaning out slightly, but I want to get on track to compete in 6 months and I am at a loss as to what I’m doing incorrectly. I hit liss cardio 4-5 times a week with HITT 1-2 times per week, get 7 hours of consistent sleep, and I’m lifting 6 times a week. My calorie count is at 2400, and the most I go above that is to 2500.
    What changes should I make? It’s been this way for months and I’m at a loss here.

    I really appreciate that feedback. Hitting a lower calorie number and being exactly consistent is what I’ll do. I may have a hormone related issue as I was in a severe car wreck last year and my energy levels have varied dramatically since, regardless of sleep, calories, etc. Maybe a good idea would be to do a catch all approach where I eat 2100 calories consistently with 5 days of cardio (I’ve been doing 30 minutes of steady state) and get blood work done to see if there’s something up?

    I’m also in graduate school and my steps do vary day to day, so having a consistent count that I’m hitting outside of my workouts is a goal that I’ll set

    Hey Bryce and Joe, just wanted to say thanks for the feedback. I’ve been hitting 2100 calories or slightly less, and I’ve dropped 16 lbs since October. It’s been an awesome transition, and I really appreciate the help

    Down to 229 and looking much leaner, definitely on track now
