my diet has been in check for about 3 months now, but iv hit a point where im not loosing any bf from just sorting my diet out, i currently go to the gym 3/4 times a week depending on university, but i could do with dropping another stone bf, would i be better not lifting weights and doing c.v work for a while until i loose the bf?. I did a search and read that you cannot gain muscle while cutting or something along them lines is this true?

No. You'll drop more FAT if you stick with the weights - short, HEAVY sets.

If you're not losing weight, you'll have to create a caloric deficit somewhere.

Post up your diet. Let's see what we can do to help get the ball rolling again.

when you cut, for most people its a "i dont want to lose any lbm", rather than "i want to gain lbm" because during a cut it is easy to lose lbm but hard to gain any because you are on a calorie deficit

morning: reflex instant whey made with s-skimmed milk, bannana

lunch: tin of tuna in brine, drained,

tea: 2 Chicken fillets, with low fat chips, a cup of mixed veg, protien shake with s-skimmed milk

supper - Jacket potato with tuna and sweetcorn.

i also eat about 5 bananas in between these meals.
my tea sometimes varies but the calories are generally about the same.

we'll need the total calories and macros (protein, carbs, fats)

but i think a problem might be because you don't seem to have pre and post workout nutrition

totals for the day

Total calories:2018

if it helps im 6.4 and i am 224 lbs by changing my diet i have lost 24lbs but i have been at the same weight now for around a month.

I would suggest uping them cals for a couple of days to reboot your metabolism n what not as at your weight they seem like their low enought to drop cals. if this doesnt work then id suggest adding cardio of some sort to burn of more cals instead of dropping them any lower.

You're diet could be improved. Start by increasing your fat and protein. Consider replacing some of those bananas with vegetables. Continue hitting the weights. Consider HIIT.
