Is it possible after a long period of dieting for your body to get used to the low calories and start producing fat cells? I have come to an abrupt halt in my fat loss and cant think of owt else. Any thoughts?

Wow, that's low. What are the breakdowns in fat/carb/pro? If you aren't getting enough fats in your diet, your body holds onto the fat it already has.

It's as simple as this: it's time for a refeed! :D

I have a question that is similar to this issue so i thought instead of making a new thread just to ask it here. Daily i find myself struggling to get sufficient calories in my diet, i make a concious effort to TRY to get at least 2000 calories but i really struggle. The problem i have is that im just not hungry, so i have problems forcing myself to try to eat 5-6 times a day. I usually manage to get 3-4 meals per-day which usually comes out to a ballpark 1200-1500 calories/140-160g protein daily. I work really hard in the gym but im finding im just not hungry, at all. What can i do to make-up for this lack of calories & fat?

You could plan your meals and eat them. :thumbup:

I'll give that a try, but like i said i find it hard to eat when im just not hungry. I'll give it a go though.

I'd give my left leg to have that bud, I take it your bulking? Your getting enough protein for the amount of cals you have, so maybe try some outmeal or brown rice, just a small amount of either has big amounts of quality carbs. If you want more fat then I'd eat nuts, nuts aren't going to fill your or be hard to cram down but have lots of quality fat. And if you up all those and your ratio is now set off and you need more protein just have some whey, mix a scoop in water, that can't be hard to cram down can it?

Simple eat whatever you want for 1 or two weeks, throw your body off its usual course then re go about your weight loss/ worjout routine! Thats what I do amd it works well:)
