    i have a weight dilemma help me!

    okay ive been going to the gym like 3 weeks straight and doing light weight lifting and 45 mins straight of cardio well my problem is that i am not losing the weight i am staying at the same weight for about a week. should i stop the weight lifting and just do pull ups dips and push ups? i am on a diet and sticking to it good so idk just really confused. i am 178 i need to get down to 155 but i dont know what i am doing wrong? plus i go to the gym 6 days a week and run everyday.

    If you haven't lost any weight in 3 weeks of this routine, and if you are being 100% honest with yourself, the only thing I could think of is just keep lowering your calorie intake... and make sure you are eating good calories too no cake/bread or sugary fruit juice. Good luck!

    What does your diet look like right now? What are you eating? Sometimes it's not that you need to lower your calorie intake, but rather you may need to eat more if your body isn't getting enough. Also, hydrate more, it will help. Try lowering your carb/sugar intake.

    I don't think weight lifting is the problem if you're eating at a deficit, but change up your routine. At the end of the day, resistance training (weight lifting) burns more calories than cardio, but if you're doing them both on the same day, make sure you do cardio last. Do different forms of cardio, don't always stick to the same thing, and try some different lifts; are you doing squats and deadlifts? If not, you should be.

    You could run and lift all day, but it all comes down to 1 thing... calories in vs calories out. If you are not losing, you are simply eating too much, plain and simple. You may think you are eating 1600 calories, but many times people "eyeball" their measurements and end up eating over what they think. Plus 1 week not losing is not something to worry about, these things happen, now if using this same diet you don't lose after 2-3 weeks, then lower your calories slowly until you achieve the 1-2 lbs loss a week.

    Ha. Steamed broccoli, fella. You need to just eat steamed veges or something. I read your post and the first thing that came to my mind was DIET. If you're doing all that motivated kill kill kill PT and you're not losing the weight, then you're not eating right. 5 small meals a day will get you looking like Taylor Lauthner. You'll be buff, but you won't lose the weight (have you SEEN that dude?) Also, remember that muscle weights more than fat, and unless 're running to Parris Island and back everyday, your calorie intake is far beyond what you're putting OUT. Simple. Also seems like you might have a slow matabolism. Steamed veges, dawg. lol

    I mean, I can dig it but it's your diet man. Don't get DQ'd over it either. Watch what you eat and how often you eat. If you can afford a gym get one and ask a personal trainer for advice (he can give you advice without you paying him) I really don't know, my problem was never weight. Still, man, it's your diet. Either that or you know deep down inside that you're not going hard and putting 100% effort in. If you are, watch what you eat and how often. That 5 small meals a day program will probably BUILD you up more, so I'd cut it, but ask your recruiter I guess, I'm just a lowly poolee.

    As of this morning I am at 199lb I havnt seen that as my wiehgt for years and its so motivational. and I am back on my diet which is a 1000 calorie diet. For me I have a while before I ship so I am doing pushups pullups and crunches only no weight lifting untill I am down to my goal weight, for me I think I'm losing weight just cause of the running I'm doing but you seem to be doing more than me so Idk just run more I guess if your body is used to running 5 run 7 miles
