    The only supp im taking due to my wieght and wanting to burn fat is superpump 250 for the energy to do my workout.
    My diet is generally this in one day.
    1 cup cottage cheese /w 1/2 cup fresh pinnaple
    3/4 cup of oats

    2 cups of salad
    1/2 cup baby spinach
    1 packet of tuna
    1/4 cup of roasted sunflower seeds
    a shot of italian dressing for flavor.

    8 oz. baked chicken breast /w random spice added.
    or oz. baked salmon
    1 1/2 cup steamed veggies

    For snacks i tend to try to jus eat unsalted nuts or fruit maybe 1-2 snacks a day. i also take a multi from walmart.

    Im looking for any comments tips or advice. ive read quite a few posts and id really appreaciate more specific comments for my body type and goals (which are to jus burn fat right now then focus on muscle building.)

  2. well let's start with the basics here, your diet is very low in calories, I'm not even sure there's enough there to support good health and sensible fat loss. if you do not exercise and are sedentary most of the day you're maintenance cals are around 3000. now that you're in the gym for 4 days a week i would shoot for 3000, this will take into consideration you're new activities and should be low enough to aid in fat loss.

    add up all of what you listed above, how many calories are there? use for help in this area.
