I know I'm treading dangerously here after my pec growth post, and I know this is the most often-asked weight loss question, but here goes anyway .... I have been working out for 18 months now and have made significant gains. I am starting to get a nice shape and have lost about 18 lbs. I usually jog outside (or something indoors like elliptical or stepping when its too cold) for 30 minutes, 5 times a week, and I lift 3-4 times a week. But for the last 3 months I have basically stalled when it comes to wait loss. It seems I have lost all there is to lose on every part of my body except the stomach. Trust me, I am thin as a rail everywhere, there's no fat on my face or chin and my skin is taut. But the spare tire, although it has been reduced significantly over the past year, won't go away. I am eating well, including lots of protein and little fat (basically the Harley Pasternak Five Factor) but no matter what I cannot get this last bit to go. It's even kind of weird-looking now because I have such a flat chest, and then the area just above the belly button arrives, it looks like a little speed bump! I know most people will say just keep doing cardio and eating healthy. But is there maybe something I can do in the cardio area to speed up fat burn? I know reviews are mixed on intensity training, but maybe I should try that? As of now I just jog at a nice constant pace the whole time. Also, what are people's thoughts on CLA? Any advice would be appreciated.
