I have read every other thread on weight loss here but I have not found a thread that relate to my question. (most other threads are about people who either don't exercise or eat too little/too much)
I have helped many people lose weight. It has always been somewhat easy for me to do it : Eat a diet based on evolutionary principles, exercise, sleep good and manage your stress.
However, at the moment, the friend I am trying to help has not seen any weight loss after a full month. He is 235lbs, and according to fitday he is getting in 2400 calories, 57% fat, 29% protein, 14% carbs. I'm not a fan of calories but everything looks on par and insulin levels are likely to be controlled. He is healthy (no illness whatsoever)
He does crossfit football 4 to 5 times a week (20-45mins workouts). He usually workout in a fasted state too. So far, he says that he feels better, that he might have gained some muscles and that his strength level is probably back to where it was (he had to take some time off training and healthy eating due to lifestyle reasons).
The problem is that he has not lost body fat. The scale has not moved (either up or down). While he appreciate the mood improvement, he would like to lose weight too.
What would you guys recommend?
