    1) too much calories
    2) not enough cardio

    Thats the problem.
    How many calories is your diet add up to ? Do you track it on a calorie tracker? Do you eat the same portions everyday? If you do reducing the portions would be the first step. You can't spot reduce (Stomach) as it comes off in multiple places. If we could spot reduce everyone would do it.

    My best advice. Calculate out how many calories you eat on a tracker and deduct 150-200 calories. And resume. If you just do portions, lower the portions of carbs in your overall diet plan, or lower the fats a touch.

    There is also 0 reason to do fasted cardio, it has no true benefits for fatloss in the grand scheme of things as a lot of modern research has debunked that. Do it as you please. You could think about adding in 1-2 days of HIIT Cardio (4-5 intervals) to really help speed up the fatloss and also raise EPOC (exercise post oxygen consumption) which will help raise your metabolism.

    If Cutting Read the following:

    Hey here is my advice:-

    Make sure you eat smaller meals but more often like every two to three hours and what a lot of people really don't do is drink enough water, make sure your muscles are hydrated for optimal fat loss.

    Also, like the post above mentioned track your calories and fit your cardio needs to that! Good luck!

    Hey Do you track your macronutrients? If not I suggest doing so. This will enable you to see how much you are taking in vs expending through training. Unless you're in a calorie deficit, you won't be losing body fat. On the flip side, if you're under eating, your body will be holding onto fat. So track your intake, train hard (don't need to do too much cardio) and sleep well!

    Have you tried any fat burning supplements, i.e CLA, Green tea, Caffiene, etc. Those alone will not do the trick, but good to add in to help get past plateaus.

    Hi…The following is my weight loss journey, I lost 55 pounds in 5 months. I will add every detail about workout and nutrition here that i went through.

    My height is 175 cms at I used to weigh around 205 pounds which was a lot more than where i should be according to my BMI ( body mass index ).

    This is how I used to look before.

    I achieved this by paying constant attention to my workout and diet.

    The most important part one can pay attention to is their diet, I started following a low carbohydrate,moderate protein and high fat diet. I started losing weight at the rate of 2 pounds per week.

    Here is a list of things that were staple of my diet during this time. My primary protein sources were fish, eggs, chicken breast, cottage cheese, soybean. My primary sources of carbohydrates were brown rice, whole wheat bread, oats and for fats i used olive oil and peanut butter through out my journey.

    Now to the workout part I trained in the morning after eating a moderate carb fruit like kiwi or apple. I did weight training first then i did cardio session. My weight training session lasted 40 minutes and cardio session lasted around 20 minutes.

    This is all i did to achieve this. If you want to know more about workout and nutrition I advice you to read

    Sweat belts dont get rid of fat, only fluid

    Your diet is not a fat burning diet.
    You are constantly eating which is raising your insulin, which blunts fat metabolism.
    Build in longer periods of not eating (fasting) and your metabolism will shift into lipolysis which is the breakdown of free fatty acids. Moderate cardio or HIIT will then oxidize them for fuel. Good luck!
