Hey there. It’s fine I don’t mind being bothered.
Ok, the notion of losing fat from once specific area is called spot reduction and unfortunately, it’s a myth (dun dun duuuun). You can not lose fat from an area of your choosing period. It just doesn’t work. It’s impossibru! You can eat healthy, exercise and your body will naturally take care of itself.
If you’re talking muscle, then we’re singing a different song here. It is possible to lose girth from muscle in a specific area NOT fat. Integrate endurance cardio into your plan. Also avoid heavy direct work on your legs to avoid building them up. The less you use them for strength, the less muscle you build in that area and the more you start to lose because of lack of such use. And don’t forget to stretch - doesn’t have a significant difference, but it helps a little bit. :)
You have probably just gained muscle. P90X tends to do that. I’ve noticed (from the few videos I’ve done of his) that he focuses on strength a lot. Your BMR is what your body burns at rest. That’s how many calories your body needs to stay ALIVE (unless you did the one that adds in your activity level into the calculation, which personally I don’t like to use) If you didn’t calculate your activity level into the BMR number you looked up, you need to be eating at least your BMR. If you’re eating under your BMR and working out as heavily as the P90X (from what I remember they were intense!) then your body isn’t getting enough food to put our the effort you’re doing and is holding onto every morsel you eat. You should eat more if you didn’t calculate your activity into that BMR number. Also, I would add in some good ol fashioned cardio to decrease the fat in your body. Did you do measurements of your body before and after as well? You may have gained weight but lost fat. Measurements are always important when starting a new program because the number on the scale honestly doesn’t mean crap unless you’re looking to lose a mass amount of weight. I fluctuate between +/- 5-10 lbs every month naturally.
So there’s my advice in a nutshell
- probably muscle gain and fat loss.
- could be that you’re not eating enough
- natural fluctuation
- add cardio
Hope this helps a little bit <3
