    High protein and fiber diet. Take what you spent on food last week and put it towards groceries. The only carbs youre allowed to by are sweet potato, oatmeal and brown rice. All other monies toward unprocessed meat fruit and veg. You shall cook now. Allow yourself a cheat day to eat as you like. This is the beginning. Thunderclap.

    Start by reading old threads on this site. There are a lot on this subject. Pick up a few tips fans go from there. Exercise is not where you should start. Start with cleaning up your diet. Stop eating processed foods for one.

    calibro is bored with people who are too lazy to do any research and come here asking other people to do the work for them.

    OP: losing weight is 80% diet and 20% exercise. IOW, you can't eat stupidly and loose weight no matter how much you exercise.

    Basic rules:

    Stop eating and drinking sugar which includes: honey, dextrose, fructose, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, sorbitol, fruit juice concentrate, galactose, lactose, polydextrose, mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol, maltodextrin and turbinado sugar.

    Stop eating foods that are processed. That is, they come in cartons, boxes, wrappers, cans, etc.

    Look at the "ingredients" labels. If they list more than 5 and especially if any of them are unpronounceable, don't buy it.

    What Mark87 said about what you *can* eat is exactly it and you can eat quite a lot of it as long as you don't stuff yourself to the point you want to puke on a daily basis.

    NOW, once you have THAT worked out, go exercise your fat ass off.

    And when you exercise focus on lifting. It will shape you, raise your metabolism and when you get around to cardio you'll be burning fat not glycogen. I think. Maybe. Just do it and see how you feel. It's worked for me. If I wait half an hour after lifting and having my protein then I can go do cardio like a fiend. If I try before I get bored and bleh. Also you want the energy for the resistance training.

    If you have an iPhone, download the MyFitnessPal app and the Endomondo app. They're helping me lose weight. I started out 292 lbs and now I'm probably about 280 lbs. Also, if you wanna join a gym, join Planet Fitness. It's cheap, they have free personal training and you can meet with a trainer and have the trainer come up with a routine for you. I'm also trying to lose weight obviously. I lost a lot, then I stopped going to the gym for a while and fell back into bad habits (I started eating junk food and drinking soda) and gained a lot back. Another thing: NO SODA AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't drink soda anymore. I gain so much weight from drinking soda. If you want something different than water, drink iced tea. That's what I do. Try to stay away from alcoholic beverages and if you're out and want a drink, get liquor, not beer. Losing weight is a huge struggle, but if you stick with it, you'll be happy with the results.

    Ever read any of the programs here or on bodybuilding.com?

    Reality: if you consume more calories than you eat, you'll lose weight, and vice versa.

    Reality: You have to eat to get active to get well.

    Reality: Anything worth doing should be worth doing well, no matter what it is. You're lazy. You're too lazy as to even complete your profile here. Change your ways. You ask for advice, but, fail to even provide adequate information in your profile, or posting. You lack attention to detail. Change that.

    Learn nutrition. Learn the body. READ.

Also you want the energy for the resistance training.


    Let me help you out here.

    Most resistance exercise, unless done with a very rapid cadence, burns glycogen, not fat (I.e., you're wrong.) It's anaerobic. Most cardio (static cardio) burns fat, at below about 68% of max heart rate), and is aerobic. Muscle burns calories at rest...just sitting there...so..the more muscle you have...the easier it is to consume more calories without getting fat. Fat burns no calories at rest; it's simply stored carbon waiting to be metabolized. Resistance training is the only form of training that RAISES YOUR METABOLIC RATE AS YOU GROW OLDER, as well as strengthens your bones, tendons, and ligaments, etc. Static cardio burns fat, but, if your calories are too low, you LOSE MUSCLE, which is the wrong direction.

    HIIT burns fat, preserves muscles, and improves cardiac threshold, if you can do it properly. Ideally, for a young man HIIT should be part of every program.

    In order to improve your body composition, have strong bones, and increase your resting (basal) metabolic rate you MUST resistance train, and you MUST do so in the presence of enough calories that allow you the energy to do so.

    If I train for a contest, I bring my calories UP to get leaner, and to provide for my higher level of activity.

    Understanding the insulin pump / cellular pump is critical to understanding how to keep body fat at a minimum. E.g., post workout, you should ALWAYS have a fast sugar to upload your glycogen in the golden hour post resistance training. Sugar is not bad, but, failure to understand the insulin response is. Low carb diets are bad, because they compromise your lean muscle mass, and put your body into feast / famine mode. YOU NEED CARBS: slow carbs most of the time, and fast carbs (higher glycemic index carbs) post and pre workout.

    You MUST EAT TO GET LEAN.

    To know exactly where you are at, you need a blood sugar tester, and Ketostix. It's all science.

    The trick to staying lean is eating enough to preserve your lean muscle mass (staying out of ketosis); eating frequently (stable blood sugar levels, meaning stable insulin levels); proper post workout loading. You MUST EAT TO GET LEAN.

    When you eat fast carbs at the wrong time, you drive blood sugar up rapidly and insulin spikes, and subsequent blood sugar depression follows (I'm starving 2 hours later.). Managing those insulin peaks and valleys is how you manage fat levels, along with not consuming too few, nor too many, calories. If you're working out harder, EAT. If you're not working out, and starve, you'll be "skinny fat" with maybe some abs, and 10 inch arms. Eww.

    No one should eat fried foods...period.

    No one should eat salty foods...period.

    Monitor your blood pressure. What you eat now, and where your blood pressure is now, will make a big difference later.

    That's what I said. Burn the glycogen lifting then do cardio afterward not before. But hey my panties didn't get twisted so go on

    I can't give any advice based on my own experience since I've never tried to lose weight and don't intend to.

    If it's losing weight only that you want to do you are going to have to be strict with your diet as well as exercise.
    You can exercise for a million years and if you still eat bad foods, you aren't going to lose anything.

    The most effective way to lose weight is simply to burn more than you are eating. If exercise is a problem for you, then you are going to have to be really strict on your diet so that whatever exercise you can do is burning more than you are taking in.

    If controlling your diet seems too fussy or too hard, then you are going to have to find a way to burn more than you are taking in which would require much more cardio exercise.

    Either way, something's gotta give. As long as you're burning more than you are putting into you, you will lose weight.
    At least that's what I've done and I've managed to lose 11-12kg in like 2-3 months, and I don't feel any drops in energy or feel weaker.

    I'm not a trainer or anything, this has just been my method which is working for me well.
