Cut out fatty food as well as alcohol, sugar etc. Not all of it but reduce it drink water instead of coke say.

Also exercise, exercise, exercise you seem very unwilling to do this therefore you will stay fat

You'll see a massive difference if you:

Stop drinking sodas and start drinking water. For me when I drunk water with my meals it made me feel "full" alot faster without having to eat my whole plate.

Try to eat 6 small meals a day like every 3 hours. I try to, but not always. I'm not a freak when it comes to health but I try to fit some of it into my life. If you need to chew bubble gum in the span of the 3 hours if you become hungry. It takes your mind off eating.

You're best asking in that workout thread someone mentioned in this thread.

Thanks for the help.

I do actually try to do the 6 small meals per day. I usually succeed with 5 of them, and then either forget about or just don't do the sixth, because it is quite late at that time, and I don't feel like eating. I managed to follow the six meals per day for a couple of months, though, so I'm confident I can start it again. Replacing pop with water does sound like a good idea.

I've heard how walking can be just as helpful as running. But, the problem is finding the time to walk as much as I would need to. The weekends seem to be the only logical time for that. Nonetheless, I also have Diamond Dallas Page's Yoga for Regular Guys which is really quite effective, when one does it properly.

I do have my reasons for wanting to get into shape. I suppose it all comes down to me to stop wallowing, and just do it.

Honestly, I'm not sure that any damage will be done if you drink Diet Sodas. It won't give you the benefits of water, though.

Alot of studies have been done that drinking diet sodas might even be worse than drinking regular ones. Mens Health says that the artificial sweeteners tend to make you have even more of a sweet tooth.

Either way, they are bad because they are a diuretic, and make you retain water.

If you want to eat good, eat good. Don't try to figure out alternatives... just eat right.

First... drink water, bottom line... I'd say a rough estimate is .5oz per lb of body weight. I drink more than that though. I run about 210lbs and drink 1gal (128oz) to 1.5 gal per day.

Second... stop drinking the other stuff regularly... a coke or energy drink once per day won't hurt too bad if you drink enough water.

Third... sweets are the devil... white breads aren't much better... Cut this and do the above two, and you will likely lose alot of fat.

Fourth... more protein... I'd guess about 85% of people in this world don't eat enough protein. A healthy amount is roughly 1oz / lb of body weight... Protein is the building block of muscle, and helps lose weight on top of that.

Fifth... the correct types of carbs and fats... slow digesting (complex) carbs and omega fats are what you need to lose fat... look them up and you will understand what works and what doesn't...

Finally the good news... eat right 6 days out of the week, and cheat on the 7th. Its ok, and actually helps your body get its cravings... its my favorite day of the week.

any questions, let me know...

Ok, here's the situation:

I've never really worked out in a gym.

As a teen i was kinda chubby, nothing severe, say 15-20 lbs which didn't look too bad since i'm somewhere in the mid 1.80s in hight (think that's something like 6 feet) and have a pretty solid frame.

Spend two years in the army where the general manual labour around camp and a bit of exercising along with the fixed meal times brought me down to something like 5-10lbs over weight.

First couple of years of Uni i played some football and walked quite a bit since i lived close to campus, so i maintained myself to that and was happy with it.
This year i live far away from campus so i take a bus which limited my walking and i stopped playing football for other reasons, so i'm finding myself with a bit of belly fat build up after winter.

I started hitting the Uni gym but i'm kinda lost on what i'm supposed to be doing.
Been going for a week now and basically i've been rotating around the cardio machines, finding i enjoy treadmill interval training the most. Usually go mid-morning, do around an hour or so.

I'm not really interested in building any sort of muscle mass at this point, just want to shed the excess fat for the time being and get some endurance back on board (used to climb 6 floors without a blink last September, now i get all tired).

Nutrition wise i think i'm eating relatively well. Not going crazy on broccoli and cauliflower or anything, but i get home cooked meals and salads when i can get them, keep them on as steady a schedule as i can, snack on fruit instead of sweets and i haven't drank any sodas in at least 3 years (unless you count alcohol mixers), usually just water and the odd juice or milk once in a while.

Am i doing what i'm supposed to be, or should i change things?

Common misconception between women and men that don't want to "get big" you can lift all the heavy weight you want, and you WILL NOT get big doing just that. It takes excess of calories to get big. Think about it... you are lifting all that weight. How do your muscles grow? They can't suck in air and hold it. They need nutrients... protein, carbs, and lots of it to get bigger.

I do agree that cardio will help lose fat, but it is second to weight training believe it or not. Building up some lean muscle will cause your body's metabolism to rev up, causing you to burn more calories 24x7. Doing cardio will help burn calories for that 1/2 hour or 1 hour that you do it, but not much after.

Just an FYI.

What kind of rough program would you recommend?
I mean in terms of splitting my time between cardio and weights, rough durations and the like.

Personally I do an hour of lifting, each part having there own day, usually 5 times a week. Then I do cardio every single day. On my workout days I usually go for 30 minutes after and then on non workout days it is 45 mins in the morning. Really depends on what you want to do. Do not have to listen to what other people say, just experiment and you will find something that works for you.
