Okay so just update, I think I figured out why I wasn't budging for a couple of weeks (gained to 135 and now falling to 131):
1) started birth control recently, so I bloated like crazy! Now it's sort of subsiding, but my stomach held a lot of water (lower gut) and I was so dehydrated.
2) changed up my 40 mins cardio to 15-30 mins of sprint/intervals... Which for some reason helped? Or could be coincidental.
3) water pills I had been taking might've had a negative effect on my water retention? I notice I have a LOT of fluid retention because my entire gut section is jiggly and can gain/lose inches in hours.
Anyways, my workout schedule is:
MWF: 30 mins interval sprinting, 15 mins arm workout with bands, 20 mins squat/deadlift/buttlift with bar (40 lb because I couldnt get my posture right when I was trying to lift heavier)
TThSa: 15 mins interval sprinting, 15 min ab/core training, 15 min toning with resistance bands. Idk what else to call it. But these are usually light days.
Sunday: used to do kickbox cardio for 30 mins, but now i'm probably gonna sprint for 30 mins.
eating schedule: Intermittent fasting, snack at around 12-2pm, eat at 4pm-6pm but I usually stop eating around 8-10pm. Caloric intake can be around 1000-1500 weekdays and even 2000+ on a weekend. I eat 60g-80g carbs on a daily basis but can be 150g to 200g on a weekend.
Has anyone had luck lowering subcutaneous fat on their belly? I dont think I have that much of visceral fat. Just a lottttt of jiggly fat.
