    Fat guy trying to loose weight!! Any good advice?


    Well, thats about it. I've let my self go for since I got married, time for all that to change. I'm planning on getting ripped asap!!! First I got to loose the gut. I just started taking Oxyelite and seems to be doing very very well. My question is am I not eating enough? So far it goes a little like this

    7 am I take 1 oxyelite along with 2 megaman sport
    730 1 meal replacement shake
    900 16 almonds
    1130 1 oxyelite
    1200 2 oz plain tuna
    300 16 almonds
    600..... varies but it again is a very very very light snack

    I'm only doing this till I can get the biggest part of my fat gone. Is that a little too extreme? I'm joining the gym tomorrow and gonna hit it hard. I wanted to get some diet/supplement started before I started working out. Any recommendations? I need all the help and advice I can get. My goal is to actually get a toned waistline and get it by doing whatever it takes, minus surgery!!! Thanks

    You said it yourself - you are NOT eating ENOUGH! Yes, what you are doing is extreme - even a female my size I would never recommend going so low re calories, even for fat loss!

    You have yet to actually start training and you started using a supplement - bad move, because supplements are NOT "magic", and they are NOT going to get you results. Your NUTRITION AND TRAINING are, and right now your nutrition is terrible, and you are not training.

    I highly recommend that you read The 3 Keys to Fat Loss - it contains comprehensive advice and information on nutrition, supplementation (you only need the Basic Staples - creatine, multivitamin/antioxidant, good fats, protein, and BCAAs when you first start out, and even for fat loss), and training for effective and successful fat loss.

    My other recommendation is get a professional to create and design a training programme (AND nutrition plan - can't forget your nutrition, since that's what is going to make or break your success with gaining muscle mass!) written specifically for YOU for your goals and needs. If you can't afford a professional trainer, then take some time out to research and look around, because there is a TON of information on training for mass!

    I think that diet is extreme (I had to go eat a meal just looking it at it made me so hungry).

    There are a lot of diet specialists on this board and I'm not one of 'em. But I think you will lose a lot of muscle with that kind of diet. I'm 6'2" and weigh 225 like you - I'm 49 and at around 12% BF. The problem isn't so much your weight as it is body comp.

    What's your BF?

    EDIT: I see Rosie posted while I was writing. She's exactly the person I had in mind when I said "Diet Specialist" above. Listen to her. She will teach you!

    A diet like this is going to have the exact opposite effect on your metabolism than what you are looking for, someone correct me if Im wrong, but essentially your body will go into starvation mode, and your metabolism will slow down to a crawl.

    Follow some of the advice that has been given, in the mean time add some eggs, a few chicken breasts, some brown rice, a can of tuna, some more nuts,and another shake to your "diet" plan so you dont screw yourself up too much before you can actually figure out how you need to eat, and get yourself a copy of p90x.

    Thanks. I guess I should clarify myself a little bit better. I only started this diet 2 days ago, I flew home over the weekend and going back to my normal work week tomorrow. That is one reason I started taking supplements first. I also have had very rapid heart beat on certain things, I wanted to see if oxyelite made my heart race before I started working out on it. My body fat is probably 75%!!! not real sure to be honest, it's a lot. I've started reading a lot hear lately, trying to get some kind of plan started. I'll have to check into getting a personal trainer, not sure if the small town i'm staying in even has one within a 100 mile radius!

    Still, that's not the best idea for using a supplement. If you have a tachycardia, you should start EXERCISING first and see what happens with that, not add in supplements.

    If you don't know what your body composition is, then that is definitely an essential part of starting out - you need to know where you are, so that you can know how long it will take to get to where you want to be. If you are >15% bodyfat, then there is NO need to use "fat burning" supplements, period - get down to a reasonable level of bodyfat before you consider this (and yes, fat loss CAN be done effectively and successfully without the use of "fat burning" supplements).

    You can get an in-person trainer or an online trainer (they do everything that a trainer does, only they cannot do one-on-one-in-person sessions with you).

    I think this is an oxymoron bro. Everybody needs to start somewhere, but just be aware that it isn't going to happen overnight like you "plan" no matter how much of a calorie deficit you put yourself into, which judging by that diet outline is pretty severe. You are going to end up doing more harm than good with that game plan. And it would not surprise me to see you not budge a single lb with that low of calories. Rosie had sound advice for you, as usual.

    Do as Rosie and others said....RESEARCH proper nutrition and dieting.

    Remember to drop your caloric intake gradually, or incrementally. Many people seem to create huge caloric deficits right off the bat and hinder their fat loss, diet plan. I wouldn't go below 1200 calories, as your body will go into starvation mode. Also incorporate some BCAA's into your diet, when you gradually reach a higher caloric deficit, in order to preserve more muscle mass.

    Wanted to "weigh in", no pun intended, but while I would not recommend supplements as I do not know enough about them, in my case, I really needed the effects of Slim Extreme to even get to the gym.

    I understand that diet and exercise is the most important, but for me, initially, the boost from the supplement not only got me through the workout, but to the starting gate to begin with. Once I built a base of muscle, and could get through some training without the boost, I cycled off of it, although it helped that it got pulled from the shelves.

    I am horribly embarrassed have gotten lazy in the past year and a half and have regained close to the 300 lbs mark again, Feb 1 is my start date of a "Biggest Loser" at work and I know that if I have a hard time getting started, that there is something readily available to give me a boost in the right direction, and that is really the only magic I need from any supplement. I don't think I will need it, however, but we shall see.

    fat loss supplement


    best supplement ever right there. as for diet, anything i say at this point is just redundant. but agreed on what the lady said.

    16 almonds is not a snack, that's about a 100 calorie mouthful. don't starve yourself, you've nowhere to go when the weightloss stops.

    Sorry. It was 16 almonds a day. 8 for each snack.

    I changed it up a bit. Added some boiled eggs, no yolks, and some chicken breast. I'm in my normal week now so I can get on some plan now instead of "learning" how to eat right while traveling. Joining the gym today, gonna try and get a personal trainer and go from there!!!

    Good job man, you are learning already! This was already said by a couple of people, but remember the objective is to not starve your body of food and nutrients it needs to function, but to have a reasonable caloric deficit to help shed pounds. Get yourself up to 6 small meals a day at it should kickstart your metabolism into high gear. Read everything Rosie told you, and you are already on your way in the right direction.
