    I have not lost a single pound in about a month.

    I am at ~15-17% BF right now, and I am losing none of it whatsoever. I went on my current diet about 4 months ago so that I could lose this shit, but it is more stubborn than my cat.

    I am eating 1500 calories a day. This is coming from pretty much all natural foods (ground beef, brown rice, tuna, NPB, etc etc)

    That alone should make me lose weight, but ON TOP of it I am lifting and doing heavy cardio about 5 days a week (cardio, lift, cardio, lift, lift). I’ve been doing this routine for 3+ months now. I look in the mirror every God damn day and see no difference. With my caloric intake deficit, one would think it (the fat) would be gone fairly quickly, no?
    No. It is stuck. I look at pictures of me from 4 months back and I actually look a little SKINNIER than I do now, Jesus tap-dancing Christ. The only thing that is changing is my strength and stamina. I am much MUCH stronger than I was then, and even some muscle is showing, but the fucking fat is still on top of everything. I am part german, so the fat resides on my ass and thighs, with a little man-boobage and a nice innertube. God damn it.
    This worked before… why isn’t it working now?

    Write down exactly what you eat per meal so that I can see what you're doing wrong.

    Try a thermogenic..a little help can go a long way in kickstarting some fat loss.

    Okay, the typical day goes something like this (with a few changes here and there)
    Breakfast:
    1 tbsp – Flaxseed Oil
    1 cup – lowfat yogurt
    10:00 AM
    1 cup – regular oatmeal cooked
    1 – herseys kiss (in the oatmeal for taste)
    lunch:
    1.5 cup brown rice
    1 large chicken breast (seasoned with a bunch of stuff)
    0.5 cup pasta sauce, mix it all together
    4:00 PM
    2 cup ½% milk
    1 NPB sandwich on whole wheat bread
    Dinner:
    1/3 of a 1lb package of whole wheat pasta
    6 medium meatballs
    pasta sauce

    sometimes I go out to subway for dinner and get a footlong tuna sub. Sometimes I go to taco bell and get just 3 regular crunchy tacos for a meal (lunch, dinner, whatever). I have been eating cheat “snacks” lately, but fuck me if THAT is the fucking cause of this BS, whick I don’t believe for a second.

    I am really frickan iffy about any fat/weight loss supplements.

    I take whey protein once and awhile, but that is more of a dietary supplement IMO

    How much sugar is in that morning yogurt?

    If there are carbs in it, I'd cut it out.. replace it with a 40g protein shake w/ 0 carbs + flax oil.. keep the fat burning process (from sleep) going as long as possible (without going to extremes).. being in a state of fasting for an extra 2 hours after waking up will help burn some more fat.

    A footlong tuna sub has about 1200 cals, IIRC..

    You may want to cut your portion sizes back a little bit..

    Have you looked into doing HIIT?

    OK, here's your problem. Your diet is all jacked up!! First off, no dairy, no bread and no carbs the first four hours that you are awake or the last four hours before you go to bed. You are eating your biggest meal at night before you go to sleep, it's all turning to fat!!

    Try something like this

    Breakfast:
    2-3 scrambled eggs
    2 slices of turkey bacon
    1 tbsp fish oil

    10:00 am
    low carb beef jerky
    1/4 cup almonds or walnuts

    Lunch:
    1 1/2 chicken breasts
    1/2 cup rice or pasta
    1 large salad w/olive oil

    4:00pm
    2 scoops of whey protein
    2 tbls ANPB

    Supper:
    8 oz of fish or steak
    2 cups mixed vegetables or a large salad w/olive oil
