    Been working out for a while and would like to increase my body's definition by going on a cutting diet to eliminate fat. I run or cycle everyday for an hour, burning around 800 calories according to my Nike ipod sensor. My diet is all chicken, fish, veggies, and rice with Special K for breakfast and right after workout. Any secrets I should know or tried and true methods you'd reccomend?

    you already look goooooood.

    I´d say HIIT it. icon_rolleyes.gif Tabata might be your baby. That and make sure you don´t starve yourself with girl dieting (only eating salads, cutting carbs, fads and flapping). That will mean your body hunkers down for the winter as you are telling it that it may starve as it can´t get hold of potatoes. I´m worried that your breakfast might be too girl diety... but without more info it´s hard to say what you could change for a different result (I´m not going to say "to improve" as I like you how you are).

    Search the loosing weight forum. There are 1 or 200 threads that might help.

    Dude, if you're doing cardio for an hour every day and only eating fish and veggies and aren't as cut as you want to be, I'm sorry(I'll get flack for this), but your only alternative is steroids. I'm not talking about the bulking up steroids. I'm talking about the fat-burning leaning up steroids. Your diet doesn't seem like it could get better and any more cardio would be too much. I agree with lostboy, though. You look great.

    no no no no... you can do all sorts of things without going the pill direction. When you get to this stage all sorts of things become relevant: when you eat, what you eat, water management etc etc. You probably want to do LESS cardio. Long steady state (an hour a day) is not the best for getting ripped. HIIT is. The Tabata protocol done properly burns fat for hours after you stop. It´s much more efficient than steady state for fat loss. The reason that people don´t do it is that it HURTS. If you do it properly that is your training over for the day. Elite athletes puke. One time I almost passed out.

    Chucky will know more about the technicals of diet as it´s his bag.

    This is tabata. Take a cardio activity such as spinning, sprinting or rowing. Chose something where if you pass out it´s not too big a deal.

    warm up.

    20 secs, 100% effort
    10 secs, TOTAL rest

    repeat this a total of 8 times (4 minutes of work).

    Cool down.

    You are thinking this is too easy. That is won´t work. I laugh in your face icon_lol.gif

    100% effort is really that. Go as hard as you can. Don´t pace yourself for the 8 reps. To start with you may well not get past 6 total reps (3 mins total) before you collapse and can´t do more. This is normal with even elite athletes.

    When I do tabata I notice results after 2 sessions. More than 3 times a week is too much for me, and I would normally only do it 2 times a week. Otherwise tiredness gets too much.

    If that is too much, normal interval training works well.

    OK this is some of the hi tech stuff.

    IT IS NOT A SUSTAINABLE DIET. Do not even dream of eating like this long term. You will get very, very sick. If you have a show to cut for use this sort of thing: once you stop and go back to your normal, balanced diet you will gain it all back.
