I work out a lot and eat in a calorie deficit, but I'm not losing fat.

In one untracked meal and drink, it's simple to reverse a calorie deficit.

Consider taking a diet break to re-energize your body and mind.

If you're having trouble meeting your calorie goals, it's possible that your aim is too low.

For some people, 1,700-1,800 calories may be a healthy weight-loss goal, but if you're a really active person with strong muscle mass, that may be too low for you to keep to.

You may be suffering diet weariness and burnout if you've been attempting to maintain a calorie deficit for a long period.

Taking a purposeful pause to recharge both mentally and physically is an excellent method to get around this.

suggests waiting two to four months and aiming to eat at your maintenance calories, maybe gradually increasing to let your metabolism repair.
