if you try the atkins you can drop 10lbs in 2-3 weeks easily but everything good has carbs in it =(

if you can't go without carbs....then keep your eating habits with about 5 small meals a day and no carbs after 7pm. eating habits can account for a big percentage of your weight loss.


i need to practice what i preach...i got a gut myself. :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead:

Riding the bike in the Texas summers with full gear is a workout in my book - if you stay hydrated you can safely sweat out 5 lbs. in a full day ride!

On the serious side - RocketBunny and I are thinking about doing some hiking when the weather fully thaws. Working out in a gym feels like a workout - but doing something fun that gets you going and raises your heartbeat doesn't and still gets the job done.

If you can lay off the drinks (calorie & sugar overload) going out and dancing at a club will get your heart rate up there too.

I lost 40 pounds by dropping anything with sugar in it. Drank water mainly and black coffee for my caffeine fix. Did some walking when I could but being on the road makes it hard to hit a gym. Lost the weight at the rate of about 1.5 lbs. per week.

Typically, the slower you lose weight the more likely you are to keep it off. Trying to make drastic lifestyle changes often results in some sort of 'crash' afterwards.

You want the secret to loosing weight?

First, start exercising. Don't change anything else about your lifestyle at first except for doing some kind of exercise for at least 30 minutes, 3 - 4 times a week.

Second, when you are successfully heading to the gym several times a week (or working out at home, don't let the I can't make it to the gym syndrome mess with you) start focusing on your diet and I don't mean go on some gay fad diet. I mean focus on what you are eating on a daily basis and begin to make small adjustments to it. Making drastic changes to your diet can be more harmful to you then anything else. Especially, if you are not in peek shape and prepared for it.

Finally, keep your routines exciting by changing them up. Add new types of exercises to your training and begin to diversify what things you are doing. Try adding a running day in to your routine or a biking day. (Some of us don't have the knees for running anymore.) Along with your anaerobic training try to find a hobby that will challenge you physically. Mountain biking, running, etc...

Hope that helps.

Eating right and LOTS of cardio....that's what will make you loose fat. It all comes down to how many calories you are taking in vs. what you are using....

Well, you actually stop burning fat at some point during Cardio. You would want to do interval training to specifically target burning fat.

The simple way to loose weight is to have a deficit in calories. Calories in vs. calories out.

you can loose a lot of weight just by doing portion control along with cadio. a few years back i lost 30lbs just by cutting my portions in half. i was constantly stuffing myself by eating the whole plate of food that they would serve at restaurants. I started only eating half of that and saving the rest for later. If you drink soda's then switch to diet. i know it's hard but ease yourself into it with Coke Zero or something.

If you can do this and cut out drinking you will loose pretty fast. If you must drink then drink whisky or rum. I still only really drink jack and diet.

oh, and there is nothing like a good EC stack to melt away the fat. Just don't over do it.

(ephedra + caffeine)

Whatever you do ease into it. No point in hurting yourself right away and not being able to obtain your goals.
