I'm currently struggling to shed extra fat. I guess the post title is a little misleading as I'm more concerned with losing fat than with weighing less.
I currently cycle 3-4 times a week, clocking in an average of between 60-100miles per week. I also incorporate 2-3 sessions of fairly intense weight training every week after work as well as a lighter kettlebell workout every morning before breakfast.
Diet wise I take a multi-vitamin and cod liver oil tablet every morning with a glass of water before my kettlebell workout, followed by a boiled egg and bowl of either fruit and fiber cereal or porridge with cinnamon and a little honey. Other meals during the day vary more, but work lunches tend to consist of leftovers from dinner, or chicken/fish with a lot of spinach and salad leaves and maybe a sweet potato. Dinner varies greatly but is almost always home cooked with fresh ingredients and and very very rarely contains any sort of processed food.
I also take a scoop of protein powder after my cycle and evening weight sessions to aid recovery time - I was finding I was constantly sore without it!
I have notices physical changes in muscle size and tone and my fitness and overall health has definitely improved, but I have yet to see any real difference in the amount of fat I am carrying on my frame.
I've been doing this routine/lifestyle for around 3-4 months now.
Any tips on how to trim the excess fat?
