    Use up more calories than you take in. Best done with a combo of cardio and calorie-restriction. I know that's the boring answer you don't want to hear, but that's how it's done. You look great shirtless, btw.

    A study written about today says it's not as important what diet you go on, as it is to be consistent and stick with it over time.

    Tall guys generally have a higher metabolism. You should be able to lose the weight pretty easy through regular diet* and exercise.

    * Diet, meaning eating healthy and clean.. not fad "diets".

    I hear the starvation diet is really good. icon_wink.gif

    Just as has been said before, burn more calories than you're taking in. Lay off the refined sugars. Drink lots of water. It's about permanantly changing eating habits, not counting calories for a month. All this coming from someone who's trying to GAIN weight...

    Don't lay off the beans! They're high protein and low fat. Put 'em in some rice with some cayenne. Yum yum.

    Do what the cave man did and try the cave man diet and you will achieve your natural lean weight for your height. Basically you delete processed carbs and sugar ( the modern so called "food" ) Eat meat ,fat (oils),veggies, nuts, fruits..even real cheese. This is no starvation diet .Eat all you want since this diet kicks up your metabolism. I shed 12 lbs in all the right places in 6 weeks and to reveal my abs .

    Anyone who is a year older than me and yet looks like you, Alpha13 - I'll listen to anything you have to say. Congratulations.

    From Caslon9000's post at http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/436843/

    "The key really is that it's calories. It's not the content of fat or carbohydrates, it's just calories."


    True enough for losing weight with no particular emphasis on fat / lean ratios. But, if you're more concerned with lowering body fat than losing pounds, there is a way to maximize results. I was given this in December by a sports physiologist at a college football powerhouse. He referenced the studies but I can't find that page.

    Higher protein and a combo of resistance and cardio in the same workout will burn fat and encourage muscle growth faster than regimens that put the emphasis on achieving just one or the other goal.

    Total calories need to be calibrated to whether you want to drop or maintain weight, and your target rate of loss. Simple calories in, calories out. (I've been happy with http://www.fitday.com where you can get decent calories-per-minute for exercises, nutrition data on a huge range of foods, and log everything very easily.)

    Those calorie ratios are 40% protein, 30% carbs, 30% good fats.
    The exercise ratios, based on total calories burned in a workout, are 40% by resistance work, 60% by cardio. Daily ratios are less important than your average over 3 to 5 days.

    I think alot of CrossFit athletes follow this. It's working great for me. Hope it helps.
