    Hi,

    so I’ve gone from 17.5st to 14st (current) but I still have love handles and my pecks have some fat there still.

    is there anything I need to do specifically to target these areas? Thanks

    You can’t target fat loss, just keep going.

    speaking from experience.

    also I’ve noticed on my weigh ins I’ve lost muscle during the process? Is there a way to prevent this? Thanks

    High protein intake, heavy weight training with lower volume if necessary to keep intensity high, peds

    How are you doing weigh ins? Sometimes those electrical things are a bit shit so don’t rely on them.

    yep, several things you can do to limit muscle loss, but that depends on what you’re prepared to do.

    Correct me if I’m wrong won’t this limit my weight loss? If I start lifting heavy and less reps?

    my workout is basic, and my diet is non existent.
    I eat cereal for breakfast with a banana … tuna sandwich in day time and dinner ..

    I don’t know if I’m honest, I just thought lighter the weight, more reps .. the more you burn and shred

    why would you think that?

    lifting heavy makes your body realise you need muscle in order to survive.

    You can't target an area for fat loss, doesn't work like that. Love handles are pesky things to remove, keep training and check your diet too.
