Help, please

Recommended Posts

I have been working out 5 days a week and working with a personal trainer 1 day a week, and I have been hovering between 169 and 165 for like the past MONTH at least. I do not know WHAT to do!! I am doing cardio, switching things up not doing the same routine, I am doing strength training and getting my a** kicked by this personal trainer... I am SO friggen frustrated!!!!!!!!!!

The only thing I can think of is that I am not eating enough calories. I have had a LOT of trouble getting most food down. I am drinking protein shakes, trying to eat other stuff with some protein (kashi brand granola bars have 6-7g protein), drinking lots of water... I am eating whatever foods I can get down, but I think I am only eating maybe 800 calories a day, maybe less some days. Any help that you guys can give would be great! I am at my witts end! Thank you

Add in a good low carb protein shake and change it up - what I mean by that is change the times you drink it. Whenever I'm stuck I do this and it works.

Great job, it never lasts forever and you're changing your body shape so don't stop doing it no matter what!!



I'm adding in some more - after traveling for 16 hours yesterday I'm not all that together today.

On thing to note, I would often get tight and have problems eating when working out a lot - make sure you're getting enough water to flush out the toxens so you're not retaining water. Also check you're protein shake - some will cause you to bulk up - make sure you're not taking one of those - try to increase you're calories and get to the point were you can eat - we eat very little - 1/2 cup per meal and only 3 per day when we're tight.

If you're too tight - check to see if you need an unfill.

It is really possible that you aren't eating enough. Make sure and count those calories. I had a plateau as well and I did come counting and realized that I wasn't getting in nearly enough calories and it helped kick start my weight loss again. Especially if you are exercising a lot, you need even more calories.

Good luck!

I would like to add my two cents. I was going to the gym for a while and was at same weight for 3 months. I was loosing inches and frustrated as hell for not loosing weight. I got a full time job and stop going to the gym and started loosing weight rapidly, 10 lbs. Only to find out that I was loosing muscle weight. With that said, you are probably gaining muscle.
