No Weight Loss

Post by Vitemp »

I know crossfit is not necesarily a weight loss plan but I am concerned that I am 5'8 197 pnd female and I have been doing crossfit for a month 5 times a week and not one pound weight loss. diet is not perfect because I do eat chocolate cookies a few times a week. About a handful of them. Other than that diet is great and the best it has been in life. I started crossfit cutting back on the caloric intake but I could not finish the workouts feeling dizzy and muscles shaking. So trainer told me I needed to eat betweek 15 to 18 hundred cals. So I cant get this weight off. I have lost some inches but nothing significant. HELP HELP

Hi Vitemp good to speak to you.

Have you considered that some of the weight loss might be counteracted by muscle gain, which would give you a better muscle to fat ratio but would give the impression you are not losing weight.

1,500 calories a day is a bit low, I'd suggest you go for around 1,800 on non-workout days and 2,000 on workout days.

Also you may well be doing crossfit too much. I'd suggest trying to do it 3 times a week on alternate days and see how that works out.
