hello,
i have been going crazy at the gym, pretty much everyday for a couples and eating very well, but have hit a bit of a plateu in terms of weightloss. I've gained a pretty nice pair of biceps, but no weightloss for a while now. Any suggestions?

Maybe your body has gotten used to the one kind of exercise. You could try shaking up your exercise routine a bit and getting out of the gym.
If you've gained a lot of muscle you may have just lost fat but don't see a weight change because you've gained so much muscle. Maybe if you try doing your measurements instead of your weight, you would probably see a difference there.
Good luck with it.

thank you! i am going to try having 3 days of lower calories, like suggested in Dolly's post and keep a close eye on calorie content, for those things that are generally really good for you, but sneakyly high in calories!

Good luck Louise, let us know how you go.

I haven't tried the zig-zag method been keeping that and other alterations up my sleeve in case the plateau occurs.

measured my body fat today, which made me happy because it has dropped, so i have have lost some weight in fat, but must have replaced it with muscle. i also stood in front of a full length mirror for the first time in a while and was happy to see that my stomach is looking firmer, and has a bit of definition. i had been weighing myself at the chemist and it was a bit depressing, i think i am going to keep more of an eye on my body fat, especially since i am doing a lot of weights work.

Anybody read 'Walk yoursel thin', by David A. Rives? it says you walk as fast as you can for as long as you can, everyday, and you don't need to change your diet!!!! sounds too good to be true, but it does work, well so far anyway :lol:

Haven't read it Fiona, but that sounds good.
I just wonder what happens when you get really fit and have to walk really fast for hours and hours to get results - I'm assuming after a while you'd start running?

I would change the exercises you are doing at the gym. My trainer changes my program every 3 months so my body doesn't get use to it.
