also make sure you get enough fiber. I use fiber sure. fiber is essential in weight loss. i would stay away from atkins and all thatother . Before I would join a gym i would join weight watchers. wit htheir points system you can eat ANY of the foods you're used to but you have to watch how much you eat of it. a double cheese burger from mcdonalds would be like 18 points. But since you have like 24 points a day or so you would almost use all your points. everyone i know that has done weight watchers have lost alot of weight.

then when you start doing cardio that allows you more points during the day. also if on it use ALL YOU YOUR POINTS don't think you're helping yusrlef by not using lal of them. they have a book with every food place you can think of and points for each thing on their menu. yes even taco bell.

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.

This is what I was talking about.

my wife is at our gym at 5am to open it 5 days a week.....not many people working out that early.

I prefer lunch time or evenings myself. Just have to stay motivated and keep going in....that's the other big thing. If you have a friend to go with that helps too I've found. Tough to get motivated to go in and workout alone.

3 times a week is generally sufficient and about 45 mins to 1 hr. per workout is really all you need.....and the CORRECT DIET!

lots of great info in here!! Thanks guys... now just to put it to use.... It's more of a motivator doing this with a few other people so that you can have some criticism if you start falling off the routine.

I would do the correct diet FIRST the the workout because if you aren't eating right then the workouts are for naught.

Some time definetly has to be spent figuring out your diet but, alot of times just getting off the couch can do wonders for you.

I tend to believe if you have been doing nothing then something is alot better. Just initially, obviously you have to give your diet a make over if you want to get the best results. Just my thinking...

1hour 30 weights - rest 60 seconds between reps and sets
15 minutes rope
30 minutes stair master

I am in no way mister atlas, i am 5 11, 182lbs. i get to eat all i want and enjoy the work out.

Not really. Any workout routine is better than nothing. but you are right, this thread is about losing weight not about eating or workout habits.

I'm saying if you're trying to lose and you eat as many calories if not more than you burn off working out then there's really no point in working out cause you'll remain in one place. BUT if you diet without working out you can lose weight even exponentially without working out. though if you work out and diet you'll be in better over all health.

What's worked for me:

Limit your workouts to 30 minutes in the beginning otherwise you'll get burnt out and say 'screw it'. It takes most people about 20 days to develop a habit of working out.

Lift weights Mon, Wed, & Fri and run treadmill Tu & Th. Limit weights to 2 excercises per muscle group (3 sets each).


.... gotta go now. I gotta finish this Snickers bar & Dr Pepper.

Los, if you need some motivation then pre work out take some kind of stim. Try lipo 6 or another cap of your choice.

I mixed a pre work-out shake that contains taurine and i get such great lifts at the gym i look forward to it.

going to the gym 5 days a week will get people burned out quick also. When i talk to noobs about it I generally get them to do cardio every time the work out and do upper and lower body circuits. that tow muscle a day work out things is good if you're really serious about cutting or putting on muscle. if it's just a little toning you want a good upper and lower body circuit is the way to go.

Of course I know none of this stuff I'm just regurgitating things from nutritionist and personal trainers.....lol
