Our expert says:
I don't think that you are in starvation mode as 1815 kcal/day or 7623 kJ/day is not too minimalistic despite your intensive training programme. The human body is, however, always striving for balance, so if you reduce your energy intake and start losing weight you may find that your Basic Metabolic Rate (BMR) slows down slightly which for someone as tall and strongly built as you will make quite a difference in the amount of energy your body requires just to keep going without any exercise. So this reduces your energy requirement and you then stop losing weight. The important thing is to persevere so that your body gets time to adjust and then can start losing again at a lower energy intake level. I would not confuse my body more by calorie cycling, rather give your body a chance to adapt and be patient. You have done 9 years of what sounds like body building, now you need to give weightloss a chance too. I hope that you have adjusted to doing exercises that burn energy rather than build muscles? This should also help with weightloss. However if you find that you are still not losing after another 3 weeks, then it is important to contact DNAlysis for support seeing that you have paid for your consultation and the tests - backup support may be necessary.
Good luck with losing
