    27 with a hard beer belly. Need help losing!

    Hello everyone so a bit about my past, used to be skinny, extremely skinny from 16-18, took some extra supplementation and got to 210 lbs 6% bodyfat by 21-22 yrs old. fast forward, now at 27 I am about 200 lbs probably 15%+ bodyfat. quit bodybuilding around 23 after i hurt my back, was drinking and partying past 4 years and just kept getting fatter and fatter. the thing is my chest still looks good, my arms still have size and definition, my shoulders arent as round as they used to be, but still a little cut, legs almost have a line down them in the quad. The one thing i just cant get rid of is my rock hard belly, it sticks out so much and I RARELY drink anymore. I do abs about 1-2 times a week, leg raises and regular crunches and side to side, but nothing is helping it. I used to have a six pack so i know i have abs, but this rock hard fat is not going away! it sucks, it gets in the way when i do leg press, squats, just looks plain bad. any advice helps i drink celsius daily for caffeine appetite suppressant and ecgcs, i walk about 1-3 miles daily, and work out atleast 5 times a week. I am also cutting my food intake by alot i eat probably 1500- 2000 calories daily.

    Getting from skinny to ripped and big was easy, Losing fat trying to get where i was is the absolute hardest thing, I dont know what else to do.

    And there is your problem right there.

    Unless you weight/measure/log literally everything that goes into your mouth, you are just guessing and frankly have no idea at all as to how many calories you are actually consuming every day.

    Yes, weighing and logging everything takes effort however if it were easy then everyone would look like Calvin Klein models and not fat people with "rock hard, beer guts".

    It comes down to diet and simple calculations.

    Like above, determine EXACTLY how many calories you're eating (1500 or 2000? big difference).

    How long have you been 'cutting?' How much weight have you lost in that time frame?

    Eat the same calories for a few weeks, after which you can use your weight change trends and determine roughly what your maintenance calories are by how many calories you're eating and how much/little weight you've lost.

    It sounds like you're lifting and I assume you're getting enough protein in - both important for retaining muscle while dropping fat.

    I highly doubt you were ever 6% at 210lb, you are not joneffer

    Also I highly doubt you eat 2,000 calories a day, none the less 1,500. I would guess you’re closer to 2500

    Track your calories and if you aren't losing after 2-3 weeks you're eating\drinking too much regardless of how many calories you THINK you're taking in. No loss =no deficit. This is an extremely simple equation.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough
