Okay so a little background before I ask my questions.
Im a male aged 26, 6' and I used to weigh around 235lbs. After dieting and exercising I am now 185lbs, so considerable weight loss. Been dieting and exercising for a little over 3 months now. And by dieting I mean I have basically cut out all processed foods, as well as soft drinking and anything that isn't grown in the ground or a lean animal.
A sample menu for a day for me is:
Breakfast - Large bowl of bran flakes topped with raisins and almond milk.
Lunch - Usually a large salad with a slow fruit and couple of hardboiled eggs with some meat for added protein.
Dinner - Usually a lot of veg (onions, beets, broccoli, cauliflower etc) with about 6 - 8oz lean meat, and either brown rice or a good starch like squash, sweet potato's
Don't really have snacks between but if I do get hungry I usually consume some veg.
Exercising on average about an hour a day for 6 days, ranges usually 30 mins cardio and about 30 mins of compound strength training. Although I'm not a heavy lifter by no means which I think I need to change this.
So My question is after losing approx 50lbs I am a lot leaner, but still have a fatty mid section, I can feel my abs underneath the fat but I am still a flabby. How do I change this? Should I stop being impatient and keep going? Should I do this Bulk/Cut cycle I've read about to reduce body fat percentage? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Oh my job is also very active I usually walk around 10 - 18 miles a day!
Oh and after exercises I consume a protein shake made with almond milk and fruits. I do tend to work out late at night and consume the shake sometimes past 11pm after exercising. Been told to consume no later than 30 mins after working out.
