Some stats about me: I'm 5'10", 138 lbs and 20 years old. I have been eating 'clean' for about 5 months now and I have tried many different things to manipulate my diet when I plateaued. I'm not sure how many pounds of fat I've lost because I also put on quite a bit of muscle as well so it's hard to tell.. but I don't care about the number on the scale at all, just what the mirror is telling me.
Anyway, I've made some decent progress since January but I was stuck at a plateau for a good 3 months and when I started reading up on the topic, I decided to calorie cycle and I can tell it works wonders. I
It's been a few weeks now and I've noticed a few improvements but I still don't know how to get rid of the love handles. I count my calories religiously and although I'm not too consistent with my F/P/C intake, I am always at a deficit except for the refeed periods. Last time I had a refeed it lasted 7 days (it was ****ing brilliant and 3 days into my normal eating habits, I saw major improvements)
But now I'm still stuck with these goddamn love handles/back fat and I don't know what to do anymore. I workout 6 times a week, with weights, run 4 k about 3 times a week and do kickboxing also 4 times a week.
So I was wondering if anyone else has been through this and what have you guys done to shed those last few lbs of fat? I am honestly out of ideas.
Thank you for your advice
