I have been back to the gym full time since Jan 1st with a full cardio/circuit training routine. My routine consists of 70 min cardio and 30 min circuit 5-6 days/week.
I have been taking in approx 1000-1100 calories/day, but cannot seem to make the scale move. My nutritionist thinks I need more protein, but most of the literature I'm reading says that more carbs is the way to go. My calorie output is definitely way over my intake. Any ideas on what I can do to get the scale moving again?
Can you give me a idea of what you are eating??
How high are you getting your heart rate during your exercise??
What are you doing all day when you are not eating or exersicing??
