    I lost 65 pounds almost a third of my body weight on the diet where replace cereal for two meals, replaced all soda and juice with diet soda, dumped all junk food etc

    Alot of my friends would ask how I'd eat fat free milk, Diet Coke, fat free yogurt and cheese etc but after a few weeks I found I much prefered them and the alternatives were too rich and much too sugary

    Switched to a physically active job, walked to work.

    I was 17 years old 5'9 went from 205lb to 140lb, a 38 inch waist to 29. In total it took about 4 months and two and a half years haven't gained any of it back

    It's probably going to take 6 months to a year for you to get down to a healthy weight so take it one week at a time and make sure you're in it for the long haul

    First off congrats on the loss so far

    Get to know your food and what you are eating, and start making the changes gradually, altho I dont use it Weight Watchers books are quite a good way to introduce yourself to what is actually portion control and healthy eating.

    Over the years you have condition yourself to "I must eat this much to feel full", its now about reestablishing that link between food being a requirement and stopping you feeling hungry.

    Ask yourself this:

    How long does it take you to burn off calories through exercise?

    Well if you take that 15kms thats roughly 5 or 600 calories assuming that took roughly an hour.

    Can you keep that up every day?

    The answer is you probably didnt before and probably wont now (maybe only for the short term) So take the easier route, eat that amount less each day, then in the time you would have cycled in start to introduce yuorself to the gym with free weights and machines.

    I can send you resources to help you on your path, but what you have to remember is dont throw your whole lifestyle out overnight by all means you need to change your ways but dont go from not having exercised to the whole hog with strict diet from day one or you will get demotivated as the weeks move on from the initial shock.

    Good strength

    Cardio + Stretching + Dumbbells ONLY! Weight Training + Swimming + BALENCED DIET + Whey Protein + Gallons and gallons of water = New You

    Half of it is your exercise regiment... the other your diet. Both are EQUALLY important. Without one... you will not see the results you want. Go see a trainer and a nutritionist!

    You may have 1g of protein per body weight pound everyday... but watch it with the whey... too much and you may develop calicum deposits, I believe, in your kidneys... RESEARCH it yourself... go to GNC and ask around... but buy the whey in bulk online: http://www.allstarhealth.com/

    Good luck!icon_razz.gif
