Weight loss plateau

I decided that this summer, I was going to drop some weight. At the beginning of the summer I was 240 Pounds, I am 6'3 tall, and right now I am 216 and have lost 24 pounds. However for the past week and a half or so, I haven't been able to lose at all. I have basically stayed at 216 and it wont budge. I was wondering if I have to wait it out? Or change my diet? Or exercise more? Currently I eat around 1500 Calories a day, and work out about an hour or so per day. (Mainly running, Crunches, and Push-Ups)

you're eating WELL under maintenance.

Unfortunately you've made a pretty big mistake in your dieting. You haven't been eating enough and now you're going to have major difficulty losing the weight.

If you had a bodyfat analyzer you'd realize you probably lost as much muscle as fat. with all that muscle gone it's actually even harder for you to lose fat now.

You need to start taking in 11-15 times your bodyweight in calories and at least 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight to lose weight but maintain your muscle mass. You want those calories split into 6 small and healthy meals.

what is your goal weight and your timeframe to get there?
