    Thanks jeniffer, only thing missing from that is my walks, i just walk through the stores if that counts lol. I've been drinking lots of water, I've planned my diet and I workout about 1hour 30 mins. I was told if I drink one cup of water with one full lemon in the morning I'd lose weight. Do you know if there's any truth to that??

    I don't know if you're still looking for input...

    Generally, I try to do some lifting 3x/week and work on different body parts each day (ie. arms monday//legs wednesday//chest & back friday). After lifting, I will run 1-3 miles depending on time constraints & energy levels. I play indoor soccer on Sundays. On the off days, I may run also.

    Whatever you do, it's important that you have fun and you mix cardio & weights. For a while, I did spin classes - so much fun! I also enjoyed kick boxing.

    I don't know that the cup of water w/ the lemon has anything to do w/ weight loss other than reducing your calories. Be careful with that though, b/c if you constantly reduce your calories, you can mess up your metabolism. Also, when you starve yourself, you're more likely to binge later.

    Exercise and proper diet are very important to lose weight and improve fitness. Avoid all high protein food like meats, nuts, grains, cheese, fast foods, fried and dairy products. Go for walking, running, cycling, practice push ups, bench press and chair squat. It burns fat,make strong bones and muscles, boost energy, improve heart functions and improve fitness.

    WTF O.o

    My diet (currently slowly leaning):
    -high protein, low carb with one controlled carb refeed day/wk
    -140-150 grams protein, less than 100 grams carbs day, 1300 calories/day with a refeed day of 2300 calories

    Excercise routine
    4x/wk
    2 days upper/2 days lower
    upper body:
    bench press
    bicep curls
    shoulder press
    tricep pulldowns (i dont know the proper name for it)
    face pulls
    pull ups
    pull downs
    rows

    lower body:
    squats
    leg press
    adductor
    abducter
    leg extensions

    Its a good thing to incorporate ab workouts and cardio. I just refuse to do them. Not a good thing however, its not worth it to me (though I know it should be).

    [QUOTE="David07;4211008"]. Avoid all high protein food like meats

    Ummmm....avoid advice from this guy!!

    Protein feeds your muscles. Muscle stimulation burns fat, you do the math. Look into HIIT (high intensity interval training). It sounds hard, and I'm not gonna lie, it is! But if you want to get into overall better condition, this, coupled with a diet high in lean meats/protein are where it's at. If keeping a strict diet is hard for you, my wife just started NutraSystem and has lost over 10 lbs in around 3 weeks....but she works HARD in the gym as well.

    Umm... Protein is only bad if your kidney is failing, meat, especially white meat, is one of the most pure sources of healthy protein and BCAAs, nuts are a great source of good fats (not protein), and grains are 89% carbohydrates (also not protein).

    It is a good idea to stay away from fried foods and dairy however. He (she?) did get that right.
