    What are you actually doing for your cardio?

    I would also second the Ross Enamait endorsement - he is very friendly and will respond to your emails personally if you have any follow up questions

    First fat gained = Last fat lost.

    Try wind sprints... they work good for burning fat.

    Best time for fat burning cardio is after you're finished lifting, the lifting uses up all your glycogen energy so you'll go straight into fat burning. (Disclaimer: May not be 100% correct)

    If my math is correct, that's about 1265 calories per day. If you're a competitive Olympic female figure skater or gymnast eating in-season, that's a great diet. I'm guessing that you're significantly older than 15 and not aiming to be built like a growth-stunted 10 year old girl...

    I am being sarcastic, but I was doing the same thing you did. My trainer sat me down one day and told me straight up that I needed to increase my caloric intake or I'd never lose any weight. Working at too much of a deficit will, as macho noted, create a sitch where your body stores the fat instead of shedding it because it isn't being fed properly. You've already dropped a significant amount of weight; you can start eating more now, as the more you eat and the more you exercize, the more weight you'll lose.

    You need to eat a bigger breakfast, as well. It gets your metabolism moving, which is very important to losing weight.

    As for the weights, gradually increase. If you post your workout, I'm sure we can give decent advice.

    Well, your caloric target goes down as you lose body mass, so maybe you're ready to put on some muscle before you try to lose a lot more weight. Muscle burns calories for you, so keep your food about the same, or even add some (it sounds like your diet is pretty goddamn lean) and lift more.

    Based on your diet, you may not be getting enough vitamins, etc, to signal health to your body.

    Just do the wind sprints... it will do a better job of burning your fat then anything else. And you actually get to be outside exercising.

    OP: also remember you lost 85 lbs so far. Your stomach will stay jiggly for a while even if you lose all your fat. You may be mistaking excess skin for fat. Excess skin is all jiggly and stuff and can only be fixed by time or surgery.

    Also, you are down to 220, not that far from 200. What is your weight goal? You should up the calories a bit and focus on strength training a I would think. But then again I don't know your goals so maybe you might want to do a ton of cardio.

    How tall are you? Do you train in any MA/sport? Do you want to perform better athletically? Fit into a weight class for sports? Just be more healthy?
