I've totally stalled with my weight loss. Since mid November I've been hanging out at the same weight. I would really like to loose another 25 lbs. On the food front, I'm keeping my carbs down by staying in Ketosis. I hardly ever go over 50gms of carbs/day. I've been doing a 24 IF every 3 days. I'm kind of at a loss as to what to do as far as diet is concerned. Oh, and before anyone mentions eat more fat, I'm doing that as well. I think if I could give up my nightly gin and tonic, that would help. Could that really prevent me from fat loss? Regarding exercise, I was lifting 2 times per week (machine and some free weights), HIIT one time per week. I dropped the cardio, because I was afraid I had been doing "chronic cardio." I decided to change my routine based on reading Marks book, and checking out some of Marks post on weight training. He suggested StrongLifts5x5 (Complex move with free weights - Squat, overhead press, bench press, inverted rows, push ups, reverse curl, planks, dead lift). I'm starting my second week. I'm very tired but now weight loss. I've also included some low level cardio (45 min walk or stationary bike) and one HIIT per week. One the weekend I did an hour and a half walk. I'm curious what anyone would recommend should I lift 3x/wk or 2/wk and do you think I'm on track with the cardio. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
