Hey

I've been eating similar to this for a while now:

7am - Oats with yoghurt and trim milk
12pm - 2 sandwhiches with ham, lettuce, and wholemeal bread
3pm - An orange
6pm - chicken/beef/pork and vegetable stirfry with brown rice/pasta

I've lost a bit of weight but seem to have hit a wall. I can't really cut down any further then that so what can I do? Is the only think I can do just do more excercise?

Thanks

Hhow much do you weigh? That's not much food at all.

And you could be choosing better quality foods than that/

Give this a try instead:

7 AM - Protein shake with banana
10 AM - One turkey and lettuce sandwich on wheat bread.
1 PM - Turkey lettuce wrap (use the lettuce in place of bread)
3 PM - An apple and some grilled chicken strips or other lean meat.
6 PM - Sensible dinner (lean meat and vegatbles/brown rice/wheat pasta)
9 PM - Low carb snack.

Aim for (4) 25 minute medium intensity cardio sessions per week along with 2-3 weight training circuits with short rest periods utilizing machines.

Make sure that you are drinking about a gallon of water per day.

This should help to crank up your metabolism and increase lean mass.

What is that like 1000 cals? 50 grams protein? lol

Thanks guys I might try a different eating plan. I'm 20yo male, about 5' 11", and I weigh about 190lb.

I am trying to loose fat but also gain as much muscle as possible

Heh, you were in the exact same boat as me. Im 5"9, 22 yrs and about 190 right now. I hit my plateu of weight loss at 210. I'd say your body has adjusted to eating 1000-1500 calories a day, switch it up for a week and intake alot more calories though protein, eat alot of tuna and lean meats. Then when you return to your low cal diet your body should begin to lose weight again, Also remember to drink at least 1 gal of water every day. It worked awesome for me, i still was able to gain lean muscle and trimmed down alot.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, the drop was needed as i am a MMA competitor and was dropping weight class. Wish i could just gain as much weight as i can and bulk right up, but i cant :/
