Don't use what others tell you works for them, because everone is different.
Here's the facts that are basic to every person in the world.
Your body requires X to maintain Y...... B+X =Y Y-C= weight lost.
X is calories, Y is metabolic rate to maintain, B is your daily burn. B+X gives you Y ......C= Deferred calories
Y-C is your weight loss. Metabolic rate minus Calories deferred gives you weight loss.
Most people know that.
Here's the thing, metabolism= weight loss speed, and efficency of weight loss.
Every time you eat, your body starts up your metabolism and burns fats, or breaks down ingested fats to store or use.
Hence the reason people who eat to much gain weight.
So, answer? Eat more, increase metabolism maintain excercise plan and see the weight loss.
OR eat more often, maintaining current calories and back off on excercise.
Your working your body into a comfortable groove, right now your body is at a place where it is "happy"
and doesn't need to burn fat off, it just uses what your taking in very efficently as to maintain.
So by kicking it up a notch and making your body work more often to digest the foods you intake, it will have to burn more fats.
Providing the foods are low calorie and low in fat. Try eating a veggie salad about 20 minutes before a cardio session if your stomach and body can handle working out after eating you will see better results.
I may not always follow my advice but it will work.
The biggest thing to remember is that, you do not want to eat to little and work to hard as to put yourself in a "storage mode" I don't like the term starvation, as your not starving yourself persay your just not eating enough to satisfy your workout routiene.
