it's just cardio man, not rocket science. some will tell you to figure out your "maintenance" calories and eat 200 everyday below that as a starting point. as far as supplements go, diet comes first. hence the word, supplement, it's only going to "supplement" something thats already in place. it took me over a year to get my diet in check and to really know my body. and that's the thing man, we can ALL tell you what worked for us, but the fact is, it might not work for you. what i suggest is post your diet. what you eat and when you eat it. timing of food is very important, i'm no expert either, but i know that much (not saying you don't). the 2nd thing is, 5'11" 165lbs. your not really a fat a** or anything, just have a little fat you would like to burn? is that right?
