I've been dieting and losing weight for around 3-4 months now and have been mainly doing cardio but still doing resistance as well. On average, I am losing 9lb a week however I got weighed today and was told my body fat has not gone down at all and still remains at 40%.
Could anyone please shed some light in why this is and how what I could do to bring my body fat down?
My diet (Same all week, apart from sundays)
Morning: - Oats (30g) + water + Sweetener - OR Porridge + Sweetener Lunch: - Tuna / Chicken / White fish Dinner: - Steak / Chicken / Tuna + (Protein Shake)
No carbs, drinking nothing but water.
Roughly, on average, 6 days a week:
Resistance (12 reps 3 sets): - Butterfly curls (8kg+) - Smith Machine (40kg - 60kg) - Deadlifts (50kg) Cardio: - Treadmill (walking at around 5.2 speech with intervals of 1.5 minutes at speed of 12.5 - 15.5)
Resistance - (Mainly the same, chest machine, and zipper wire - Same reps / sets) Cardio: - More cardio at the evening, longer walk time. Aim to burn around 1k calories per day.. So 500+ in the morning and 500+ in the evening.
P.S. No measurements was taken, I was asked to stand on a machine and put my hands on this bar.
