I started my weight loss journy about 8-10 months ago at 330lbs and I am currentley 250lbs. Only prob Is I have been stuck there for about a mounth now. I have done so many diffirent things to loose the weight that im no sure what worked and what didnt and what workes the best, also I recently changed my goals to adding muscle while loosing the fat. Well I stoped by a nutrishop the otherday and the guy that owned the place was was a nutritionist and claimed he could help me jump start my plan again doing just that.
First he said go buy a good scale.
So I went get a homemedics 545 about $80 bucks at dicks.
Then he asked about my exersice routine.
Currently I walk 3-5miles a day (depending on how I feel) with a 40lb weight vest on I usually average about 17min to a mile.
Since I was aming for more muscle I am doing the weight lifting routines of p90x mon threw sat. (Mon - Chest&Back Tues - shoulders and arms wed- legs and back thurs - chest shoulder tricepts fri - back bicepts sat legs and back and usually kenpo x on sunday)
He said that was good he likes someone who works for what they want.
so he sold me protine, mass fusion, glutacore, bcaa, and nsane to drink before and after the work outs, and said the changes will come just keep working hard.
I went back to him about a week later and said I dont think im eating enough to keep me going doing the current workout plan I was fallowing. I also work 12 hrs a day as a laboror in the oil field so hard work also.
He said eat protine and carbs for breakfest, protine and vegs for lunch and protine carbs and vegs for dinner and stay around 1500 cals and you will be fine.
The fancy scale I went buy says im 250.6lbs 28%fat and 38% muscle and should eat 4400 calories a day to maintain that.
So I was thinking to loose 2lbs a week - 7000cal I should be around 3400 calories a day?
So who Is right and what should I do, and help please?
