    Five lbs away from goal weight / stuck with alot of body fat on stomach

    Im 5'7 155 lbs 23 years old male.. Was 200 but lost the weight through eating less and a bit cleaner plus running on treadmill.. About four weeks ago i started doing a three day beginners split for weightlifting and eating cleaner plus doing the insanity workout program for cardio.

    I've gained some strength and I've lost about five lbs since I've started so it's been a good thing but I've noticed I still have this pot belly and more fat on my left thigh compared to my right plus I still have a double chin and I'm wondering when this fat will go???... I've gained ten lbs in the past and I lost it through eating less and running and within a two week time Span and got real thin but now it seems harder to get to the point...

    Another thing I'm worried about is doing this insanity workouts I noticed I'll skip a few days for cardio because I'm worried that I might burn up anykind of muscle I may be building and I'm worried to lose strength so not sure what to do..

    Also not sure if my diet is the problem either like I may not be eating enough??.. I just really want to get rid of this pudgy look and build some muscle while gaining strength and confidence.. Can anyone help me figure out what could be the problem??

    Weight is just a number, **** weight! Go for body fat percentage, make thst your goal, and if u have fat around the stomach area then you still need to get your body fat percentage down. Fat won't be spot removeable, you have to get your entire body to lose fat and that will come with it. So just keep to your deit and cardio and get that BF% down

    Also, if your worried about losing muscle, keep a high protein diet and when your doing cardio make sure you keep your heart rate in the target area for fat burning, any higher of a heart rate and you will burn gains.

    You may want to try Yohimbine for targeting "stubborn" fat. But you need to already be fairly lean before it will help.

    You don't really have to worry so much about losing muscle as long as you are doing weight training and keeping your calorie deficit reasonable.

    i didnt even read your post to be honest with you just going by what your title says.... if your down to the last 5 pounds of fat you wanna lose you got to relize that its probably all bodyfat and you stopped losing alot of fluids etc which if you could see yourself in skeleton form and see what is actual fat hanging off of you then you would see how much space fat actually takes up. 1 pound of fat looks just like a brick of butter so just stay in a defficit and in a few weeks you should be where u wanna be

    Whoa, don't need your whole meal plan bro, macros is all that matters. Calorie deficit + hitting the gym hard = successful cut.

    Alright first off measuring by lbs is kind of misleading. That could be water weight, food in your stomach, anything could be a pound. Measure your bf% per week. But you sound like your deit is clean, just stick to the cardio and diet...keep motivated
