That sounds like a sound plan. I know I have cut too far back on my calorie intake and that kept me from losing, too. I am sure if you just tweak it a bit here and there you will get going again. Good Luck!

P90xDoes have strength training.. basically everyother day or so.. SO I know I am getting the variety of workouts... I am coming to the conclusion that (as my hubby put it last night)I am lying on SP..When I say I burn xx amount when actually I am burning a ton more... SO I have added the correct amount of burning calories and will consume more calories and see how that works!! Thanks for the great advise I really appriciate it!!

I would go with what SP is telling you. When I use their calculator it gives me a number that is fairly similar to all the online calculators so I'm not sure why there would be such a huge discrepency for you. Here's the SP calculator I used.

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness
_a
rticles.asp?id=385


SP gives me 1282 where as two online caluclators give me 1192 and one gives me 1209.You don't want to eat at your BMR anyways. Your BMR is the bare minimum calories requred to live if you were to do nothing all day but lay in the dark and just breathe. Your body requires extra calories on top of this number just to perform daily taks like walking around, showering, driving, cooking, etc. It sounds to me like you're not eating enough. If you're burning 900 calories a day you are essentially starving yourself by eating at your BMR. Plateaus can occur from eating too much or too little. When your body thinks it's starving it will tend to hold onto fat. I would suggest increasing your calories. I know it seems counterproductive when you're trying to lose weight, but in my experience it definitely works. When you're woriking out so hard you need to fuel your body properly. Make sure that your calories burned goal is accurate on your start page so that SP can give you the correct calorie range.

Hope that helps and best of luck!

Does the P90X include strength training? If you aren't doing that, it is a good way to build muscle mass which in turn helps you burn more calories.

Typically, what happens when one hits a plateau is that their body has adjusted to the routine they have created. To get off the plateau one has to switch up the routine. Try switching up your exercise; type, time, and amount; also, check to make sure your diet consists of high density, low fat calories. Also, don't skimp on the protein. Hope this helps - you will get off the plateau - sometimes it just takes patience and mixing it up a bit.

Does anyone know why the BMR for SP would say 1890 for my height and weight and all the websites that I have been on for the same info says my BMR is 1580?? I am trying to find out if my calories intake is correct that SP gives me. I have hit a plateau for the past 4 weeks and its not moving.. currently I am consumimg between 1500-1600 and burning about 900 calories a day approx. Any help would be greatly appriciated.
