Hit a plateau cannot go lower then 10% body fat

#1 Postby vegancrossfitwod » Thu Feb 27, 2014 1:05 pm

Hi

5'6 150lb 10% body fat and Mesomorph body type

I'm new to Vegan eating since last august and i do eat tons of fruits and veggies all day to add up those carbs i do need along with lentils and beans and quinoa and sweet potatoes -- but i eat 4 to 8 bananas a day and 15 to 20 dates daily to help add the carbs since my training is about 2 hours daily with cardio and weight training

I probably have about 300 carbs a day and 120g protein and maybe 60g fats daily

I'm wondering why can't i seem to get lower then 10% body fat i seem to have hit a plateau here

I'm looking to get down before summer 8% maybe 7% as a vegan it should be possible most foods i do eat are pretty healthy


thanks

Once you get to a certain point it gets much harder to decrease body fat. Just keep working hard, it will come but slowly. Maybe try changing things up from time to time and see if results change?
