Firstly congratulations for losing those 21 kg - you are a ***star***! If you will gain weight if you stop taking fat burners, depends on what these fat burners contain: a) If they contain synephrine or bitter orange extract or any other form of ephedra, etc, which acts both as an appetite suppressant and a stimulant, then once your appetite is no longer suppressed you may gain weight once more, b)If they contain caffeine or guarana, which act as stimulants, then you may also feel less hyped up and tend to gain weight c) If they contain green tea extract at a level that can promote weightloss or chromium, then once gain stopping the supplements may cause weight gain c)Most of the other ingredients in these fat burners do not really have an effect on weightloss, so stopping should not cause weight gain. If you stick to your diet and also keep up your exercise at 4 times a week, you should be able to maintain your weight. The whey protein shake is not really ideal after exercise as this is the time when you should rather have a low-fat or fat-free carbohydrate boost to help replenish your glycogen stores which fuel your exercise. As your diet is rather low in calcium-rich foods you can try having fat-free yoghurt or milk instead of the whey protein shake to ensure that you are ingesting 1200 mg of calcium a day.
Good luck with the road ahead
