    Ideas for losing last 15 pounds.

    I have lost 40 pounds through diet and cardio but I have been stuck for about a month now at my current weight and would like to lose 15 more pounds.

    Right now my diet consists of mainly chicken, Tuna and eggs for my protein. My carbs come from whole wheat bread and pasta. I need to increase my vegetable intake.

    Any ideas on how I could lose that last 15 pounds in the next 2 months?

    I'd like to make a vague contribution to a vague question too: Do more exercise.

    Yep, loose the bread and change pasta to rice. Wheat products are from Satan!


    Strength training is like pushing a button on a elevator. You only need to do the action of pushing the button once in order to gain a response. Pushing it more and more will NOT speed up the process.

    Re: Ideas for losing last 15 pounds.

    for me the dave palumbo keto diet is the best for losing stubborn last few pounds. its low carb and is somewhat difficult. but hey thats bodybuilding. I go two days only eating clean veggie for carbs, then one higher carb day with oats or brown rich. and healthy fats on low carb days

    Re: Ideas for losing last 15 pounds.

    Definitely throw in some HIIT Cardio. Also make sure to periodize days where you lift very heavy weight.

    Absolutely increase your vegetable intake, and possibly 1 serving of a low glycemic fruit such as blueberries. If you really like whole wheat bread, I don't see anything wrong with that as a carb source, but consider buying a low carb higher fiber version. There are usually options such as these at grocery stores. This will be an easy transition, and result in lower carb intake.
    I suggest toasting the bread so it takes longer to eat and enjoy!

    Are you taking a thermogenic? Also consider other supplements such as CLA, Fish oil, Sesamin oil, green tea extract, and L Carnitine.

    Hi jwill0214,
    Dish out pasta and take fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet plan.
    Make a bowl of fresh fruits and vegetables and sprinkle some nuts on it to improve taste and to get your diet complete.

    Re: Ideas for losing last 15 pounds.

    Hi JWill,Congratulations on losing 40 lbs and to lose 15 lbs in 5 week, break meals in small frequent meals and prefer raw food over processed food. Drink more water than routine, have green tea and avoid beverages. Avoid eating shortly before going to bed, manage stress and have proper sleep.

    To lose last 15 pounds, break your meals in small frequent meals and eat fruits and vegetables more in your daily diet plans. Drink more water than routine, have green tea and avoid soft drinks. Avoid eating late, have proper sleep, workout regularly and manage stress.

    Don't take more carb foods and eat more fruits and vegetables in your routine diet.
    Also continue your cardio exercise along with your weight workout to lose your unnecessary weight.
    Eat more green leafy vegetables, beans, and nuts rather than chicken and meat to get more veggies protein for the muscles recovery.
