I'm 21 and used to be 320lbs and through a year and a half of diet and exercise I'm now about 198 lbs (6'2 height).
My arms and legs (especially legs) are now very cut and defined, but my torso still has a lot of fat. I can't seem to get my waist under 38 inches and I'm really sick of it and my moobs because I think I'm doing everything right. Here is a quick rundown:
Eating 200g-220g of protein
Eating 270g-300g of carbs
Eating 20g-30g of fat
Only time I eat simple carbs is post exercise
The carbs are primarily brown rice, whole grain spaghetti, and apples/bananas
At least half of the protein is chicken breast (so lean meat protein)
Taking vitamin C (1g post workout and 2g spread throughout the day)
My workout routine is:
Day 1) HIIT
Day 2) Weight training - back
Day 3) HIIT
Day 4) Weight training - chest, shoulders
Day 5) HIIT
Day 6) Weight training - arms
I don't do a leg day because they are obviously getting enough work from all of that HIIT.
Despite my exercise and calorie deficit (according to my log in which I track my calories I eat about 2000-2200 a day) I have been gaining a noticeable amount of muscle but not losing any torso fat. I find it very hard to believe I am in a calorie surplus given my size and activity level and that I'm usually pretty hungry when I eat.
I've been doing this specific routine for a few weeks and as a side note I'm sure that I have a fat problem and not a loose skin problem.
Anyone have ideas on what's going on? It's extremely frustrating and depressing
