    Been taking it since end of June... I lost about 25 lbs from June until mid-Sept and I've been sitting within 1-3 lbs of that weight since.
    I'm not really losing any weight and the diet hasn't changed, still working out regularly and running etc too.
    Is it likely I've grown a tolerance to it or that my body needs to be shocked with a different workout style or something?

    What is your diet and training routine?

    lower your calories... if you've lost 25 lbs. then your metabolic rate may have stepped down, too

    +1

    you can't expect to stay at the same amount of calories and lose weight forever. Your body is going to adapt to the amount of food you give it, either by losing weight (your goal) or slowing your metabolism to remain constant (not your goal). Right now your body is probably on #2.

    Diet is about 2000-2500 cals per day
    Training is weights mon, tues, thurs and fri - and running mon-thurs (friday is leg day with weights so I don't run that day - wed is running only).


    Got ya... How do I speed the metabolism back up then?


    Thanks for the help again guys :)

    decrease cals, increase cardio. one or the other, or both.

    I'll try both.
    Dumb question but, if I do both and then eventually I'll even out like I did this time right?
    What do I do then, decrease cals even more? won't that be unhealthy?
    Should I continue with the Meltdown then?

    Thanks

    you reduce cals and increase caloric expenditure until you reach desired weight
