    Back in February I was at 268 lbs (I'm 6'2" btw).. I have been eating healthy and working out 5 days a week and the weight was disappearing fast until 3 weeks ago when I got to 210lbs and I cannot drop below this point.

    My typical daily food intake includes:

    Breakfast (7:30am): 2 hard boiled eggs, 1 cup coffee, Lite Yogurt (60 cal)
    Lunch (12:00): Ham/Turkey sandwich, 1 orange, 1 banana
    Dinner(5-6pm): 2 grilled boneless chicken breast, green beans or corn
    I will also drink about 2 cans of diet soda a day...

    I don't "cheat" at all except on a weekend night I will usually drink some beers (somewere between 5 and 8). I workout from 3:15-4:30 5 days a week. 25 minutes of intense cardio on an elliptical machine and the remaining time I lift weights. I don't understand why I hit this wall, i've been stuck at 210 for about 3 weeks now.

    Do you guys have any suggestions on what I should I change?

    210 is good for 6'2

    Hows the total calories of your daily consumption match up with your daily expenditure? I bet the answer lies somewhere in there :o

    honestly, stop trying to lose for a few weeks and just maintain, or even try to gain a little. I'm pretty much convinced that if you lose too much weight too over a long period of time your body adjusts somehow. That is what I find when I'm trying to cut.
