Help! Not sure what I'm doing wrong....
Hey everyone! Looking for some advice. I have managed to lose over 100 pounds and keep it off over the last four years, so I'm very proud of that achievement. All that being said, I'm still not where i want to be. I've been a vegetarian for a little over a year out of those four and have noticed a tremendous uptick in energy and better workouts, but I cannot seem to manage to lose anymore fat off my midsection. I've noticed it in my arms and legs, both of which are showing more definition and getting a little more vascular, but it refuses to come off my midsection and i have no clue what I'm doing wrong. The boards won't let me post pics yet, but i can provide them when it allows me to.
Sadly, I've been carrying this weight around my midsection for the better part of a year without a change. Here is what a usual day of eating looks like for me:
Breakfast: White Bean Smoothie - 3 Bananas, 1/2 cup of Navy Beans, 1/4 Cup of Pumpkin Seeds, Spinach, Almond Milk, 1 Scoop of Naturade Pea Protein
1 Cup of Oats with Almond Milk
Lunch: Veggie Tacos with Pico, Salsa, Spinach, Black Beans, Corn, 2 Tortillas
Mid-Afternoon: Cup of Oats, Smoothie with 3 bananas, Spinach, scoop of Protein Powder, Cinnamon, Pumpkin Seeds
Dinner: 1 Cup of Brown Rice with Bell Peppers, Broccoli and 2 pieces of Ezekiel Bread with PB2
I also have a weekly cheat meal with my son on Sunday mornings where we get donuts, but other than that, my diet is pretty much like you see above. I workout using the Stronglfits 5x5 program three days a week and do some Cardio/HIIT two days a week. I'm kinda stuck now and need some help. Any advice you guys want to give would be awesome. Thanks for your help!
