    Screw the carbs. How many calories do you consume?

    And not to be snarky, but it's "love handles." I only point it out because the idea of "nasty love handlers" is pretty friggin' funny.

    You have to burn more calories in the day than you consume. If you stick with it the love handles will disappear.

    I consumed 2000 cal daily and I do cardy for an hour on the stair master or running and I burn approx 500 to 600 cal per hour. Also I try to eat small portions every two hours.

    If you drink alcohol, give it up for 1 month and you'll see a difference.

    It's all about what/how much you eat and how many calories you burn.

    Also keep in mind, that doing an hour of flat rate cardio will not work your body as hard as doing a half hour of interval cardio. Might want to mix it up and try that, could help a bit as well.

    But it's just a slooooooooow process, as I'm finding out.

    Mine are already loose! If they were tight, they wouldn't be handles!

    But wait, you said handlers. Hey if my love handler was loose, I'd tighten those reigns quick, unless he was only loose with me.

    I was gonna say you should find a better class of neighbors icon_wink.gif

    It's all in the diet and the foods you eat

    But word to the wise... this is one of the only places you don't want your muscles to grow
    You want a slim thin waist?
    Then don't be doing weighted side bends and hours of twists... because this will only accentuate the sides of your waist and make it larger>>>>>>> exactly the opposite of what you want it to be

    Not meaning to add snarkiness but it's "lose". Loose is the opposite of tight.

    Thanks for all of your advise. I took inconsideration every each one of them. I just lost 3lb from when I post the topic until today. I can tell it has been 3lb of fat that I lost since my pants are more loose from the waist but the butt is still the same.

    thanks icon_biggrin.gif

    Also don't forget about genetics here. Everyones body is adaptable and we can cut calories, fat grams, carbs etc. Kick up the cardio and re-apply often.

    The real key is patience. Do what you are doing. Take the good advice but also remember our body locks into routine real fast so change up your cardio to burn full maximum. Love handles, lower belly fat is a bastard for many men. It will come off but it takes patience. Sometimes it's the last area willing to give up the ghost so to speak.

    DJBens77 saidhave your smallest meal of the day at dinner

    purleeeeeeeease God help me I never had you down as one for old wives tales and gossip DJ, Im gonna put you over my knee and spank that perfect little bubble butt if you carry on Chucky stylee like that.

    24 hours is what matters not a window of opportunity or a window of misopportunity as the case maybe. Are you more likely to stick at a diet going to bed hungry every night and not having carbs available that will help your body metabolise fat while you sleep!

    Your problem lies not in what you are doing or eating but the fact that it is static and doesnt allow much opportunity for the body to burn the fat. Your doing the same thing day in day out and the body will work to order. yes you will lose weight eventually but one would hazard a guess your calorie burn is based on a machine reading which has as great a margin of error as sticking your finger in the air to predict the weather.

    So what do you need to do? Shake things up a little, going by you BMR + activity level you are in effect leaving yourself at a calorie input of 1400 a day. Yuor body is screaming feed me! So thats exactly what you need to do. Feed it and kick start that metabolism that probably makes a Dodo look positively energetic.

    Now you can run the calories off or you can get sensible and achieve your desired goal. Ask yourself this, do you run the same style with the same gusto 7 days a week? Or would you rather let the kitchen do the hard work and count the calories therefore creating the same deficit and devoting your gym time to preserve your lean muscle mass? If you want the supermodel look, and Im talking Kate Moss rather than the desire Rusty Joiner then by all means carry on with the running.

    Now as to bumping those calories up everyone knows, or at least I hope they do, that muscle needs progressive resistance to achieve growth or even maintain or your growth becomes static or worst you start to lose. Well weightloss is no different a static week in week out means your body will adapt.

    Start calorie cycling. Some prefer daily, personaly I find it too fiddly and prefer weekly as its easier to manage.

    As for the 6pm carb deadline its a crock of shite and based on the premise if you cant eat them after 6 then you will simply eat less throughout the day. Now wether you have a carb loaded breakfast or a carb loaded dinner again its minutia its the total figure that counts.

    If you want a strategy or even training and diet plan then hit me up if not and you want to carry on as is then at least make sure that the 2 run in tandom and work to your advanatage not disadvantage as they currently are

    Challenge them to a game of Hide and Seek and when they go hide, don't look for them.

    Now go over to the telly and turn off that Jane Fonda DVD that bloody woman needs shooting! She brainwashed all the gay men with her mesmerising iconic status I tell ya! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    OK Ive said it before I shall say it again. Of course it will take time! Exercise is the most bloody inefficient way of banishing fat. It takes seconds not to eat 500 calories yet an hour to burn it off. You can sit on your bum and manipulate your diet and the weight will drop off, it wont do much to retain the lean muscle mass but then again neither will running.

    So if you want to achieve a good return on your time incorporate your cv into the way in which you do your resistance training 3 or 4 days a week but let your diet do the hard work 7 days a week

    Cycling burns lots of calories.

    As does sex (if you're the top).
