  • 50lbs lost, still need to loose 30, is 130 fat grams daily pushing it? :(

    I'm 5'2 and would like to be 130/125
    Started at 204 and got down to 155, I'm 22 yrs old.

    Weightloss seems to have totally STALLED for like a year now.
    I'm trying to keep my cals 1500-1800, Protein around 100g, carbs from 50-75g, and fat??? No clue.

    Is something wrong here?

    That's a lot of fat, and at 5'2" you're probably maintaining due to your Crossfit activity. Can you back off just the fat, may make it even or less than that of protein?

      I think it would be more helpful if you posted some food logs so we have an idea of what kinds of foods you're mostly eating.

        If you're getting a lot of exercise, especially weight work, don't look at the scale. Gauge your success visually or through measurements. It is possible to lose fat and gain muscle with no net weight loss while you look better and have better fitness.

        That said, if you're doing crossfit, eating primally and not losing fat, you should look at your diet.

                You could try smaller portions of the same foods. Eat just a little bit less than you have been and see if maybe your stomach doesn't really notice.

                  After a WOD so I can reach my protein levels. I know it's not the most ideal

                    If weight loss is your goal, I would try to replace the protein powder with something else. Maybe a few hardboiled eggs? Your body will likely be able to use this better and it will keep you more full.

                    You mention your belt is moving, which does imply you're losing inches. Have you changed clothing sizes in this time period? When was the last time you took some time off from exercising or eating restrictively? Perhaps you just need a break? Often a week where you eat as much as you want (still primal foods), perhaps upping your carbs even, and a week off from exercising will let you relax a little more.

                      lol it's moving up! I actually took a couple months break and have been back at it for the past 2 weeks. But I'll try the egg thing, though it'll add to my fat which I'm trying to bring down since people say 130ish grams is too high.

                        You could eliminate the cheese or 1 Tbsp of cooking fat if you wanted to help to bring down your fat levels....

                          Also, cutting out the potatoes and starchy tubers may help you on non-workout days. I don't see the fat being a problem unless it's overextending your calories. I'd try to eat a bit more meat and cut out some of access oil and/or butter to balance it out. Up that protein and balance it out with the animal fat. It may be the key you've been looking for.

                            Well your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is approximately 1517 calories per day based on your age, weight and sex. Your daily maintenance is probably around 1820 (BMR X 1.2). So its logical that your current daily caloric consumption (1808) is creating a weight balance or plateau. To loose 1 lb per week you need to lower your net daily caloric intake by 500 calories per day. Also I would keep your carb grams to between 50 and 100 per day and periodically go VLC (under 50 gms) and experiment with intermittent fasting. Good luck!

                              You could also look to decrease your carbs to below 50 per day.
