A couple of suggestions, keep your protein intake at least .5 grams and up to 1.0 grams per pound of lean body weight. For you I would guess that to be 65-135g of protein daily. This will help you retain the muscle would other wise be catabolized as a result of your running and dieting. I have read other posts on the forum that have increase their calories to maintenance for 2 weeks when they hit a plateau. This seems to reset their metabolism and when they return to a caloric deficit the weight loss is resumed.

There is a thread on the posts about Calorie Cycling or Zig Zag Calories? That you might want to look at. Google Carb cycling - their is lots of info. This is an easy to understand site How to Use Carb Cycling To Break A Fat Loss Plateau | eHow.com
