    Hello A.M. i am in serious need of help. i am 24yrs old i am 5'11'' and 275lbs. i am very overweight. my waist is like 48'' {don't know exactly}. i am not used to being this big. after being injured over seas coming back and separating from the military i let me self go. No time like the present. i need to lose massive pounds and inches. asap. SO if any one could help me with a cardio and diet plan i would greatly appreciate it. also any supplements, topicals, or other things you can suggest would be great. i wanna get big but i know i have to cut down alot first. PLEASE HELP.


  2. You just need to diet first and foremost.

    I'm not sure the caloric amount you should consume at that size, but start out cutting around 500 calories a day and track your weight.

    Cardio might be hard at that size, but I'd recommend low intensity for up to 30 minutes max at first, probably start at like 10 and slowly work up.

    If you really were military then you should have the discipline and sense of pride to fix yourself

  3. Hello,
    Download a free program called My fitness pal.
    It's a lot of work in the beginning, because you must track all the calories you eat. It gets easier as you input the data, since you eat certain things over and over again. It will determine based on your current normal daily activity how many calories you burn to maintain weight, and then it will help you to figure out how many calories you need to cut to lose a certain amount every week.

    There is even a small community blog for support in losing weight.

    It's excellent. I am trying to get from 176 to about 165. Not much, but without counting your calories, you'll never get losses.

    I would also start some simple cardio. Daily walking, treadmill, elliptical. Anything! Any calories burned helps. Remember, its not about each day, but the total over a long period of time.

    Good Luck

    Also, don't increase the intensity on any machines you do. It may appear you are burning more calories, but if you get tired in only 10 minutes, you lost all the calories you could have burned at an easier intensity for 30 minutes.

  4. cardio is not necessary... working out intensely is.

    You can just adjust your diet accordingly using the tools mentioned above and start working out regularly, work up to 5 days a week... then as the pounds come off you can incoperate cardio as well if you please.

    PLENTY of fat burners and supplements out there but I wouldnt use any till you get to a tough spot and start to lose momentum then you have some extra help there to keep you moving.

    GL and as you said, there is no time like now bro, you can do it.


    BTW thank you for your service.

  5. thanks for the support. i know i should have been better disciplined. i plan on cutting calories to around 1750 daily. then i will cut carbs to about 25 - 30 daily. i was wondering if weight training and cardio or 1 over the other.

  6. no fat burners yet

    Start a 3 meal a day diet 800 cals per meal.

    focus meals on protein and fat, fillers are carbs. small amount in breakfast and lunch only

    shoot for

    275-300g protein, 150-175 carb and 80-110g fat coming from mainly oliver oil avacados macadamia nuts coconut oil and walnuts

    choose lean protein.

    highest protein meals should be breakfast and dinner to help manage leptin.

    id suggest lifting weights again 4-5x a week and low intensity card for 30-45 minutes post workout to start.

    examples of carbs to eat

    sweet potato, broccoli, squash, quinoa, oats (if you can tolerate) whole wheat breads and wraps (read label carefully)

    protein sources: lean turkey (try for 99% lean), london broil, salmon, PERDUE chicken breasts

  7. thanks i will add this to my diet plan. have started going to the gym but dont have a specific work out plan if any one could throw one at me i would appreciate it. i will begin implenting this plan on monday. plan to cut for about 12-16 weeks. i will re calculate bi-weekly to addjust the best plan for my body.

  8. also i want to start a weekly log on here is there a specific forum i would go under to post my progress

  9. post in training forum

    Monday Chest shoulders
    Tuesday Legs
    Wed off
    Thurs Back
    friday Arms
    sat off
    sun off

    simple is key. Simplicity and consistency in the begining.

  10. adjust calories every month. if your doing what i listed (roughly), and then each month drop 50g carbs.

  11. weight training i'm thinking low-medium weight ....-medium-high set/rep. abs and cardio everyday. i am going to treat myself like i am in basic training to a certain extent. i will only eat certain thing at certain times. i will do my workouts in the morning when i wake up. and 3 hrs before i go to bed. after 3-4 weeks i will add a supplement to maintain energy as i lower the carbs. right now i plan on eating no more than 1,500 calories a day and drink 100-120 oz of water a day. i have a pre-workout that i am taking to motivate me. i will implement you plans onto my current worksheet i am drawing up.

  12. well i got my accurate results today. i am 5'11''/71" 290lbs neck=17.5", chest=45", around navel=48.5, around waist=46.5", hips=51.5", biceps=15", forearm=11.5", wrist=8", thigh=29", calf=17", ankle=10"...... calculated to approx. 36-38%BF. this is just terrible. when i was in the service 2 yrs ago i was 222lbs and i want to get down to atleast 215lbs now. i will start my log in the training forum soon. ready to get flamed but criticism fuels my fire to better reach my goals. and thanks. my fitness pal says i should eat about 1,920 calories a day. i will do that or less. and i will do cardio daily and weight training daily as well.

  13. lift heavy do big compound movements, then do a deload for a week with high reps after 6 weeks on the previous

  14. my fitness pal says i should eat about 1,920 calories a day. i will do that or less. and i will do cardio daily and weight training daily as well.
    Don't drop too much too fat bro, you don't want your body to go into preservation mode n hold into fat instead of shedding it.

    Gl hit this thread with a link to your log so we can egg you on!

  15. No way.
    My goal is about 1650, to lose 1 pound per week, and I was weighing in at 176 when I started.

    You are looking to drop weight too quickly!

  16. yeah i was thinkin' like around a pound a day.. i'm eating 3 eggs for breakfast. and alternating tuna , chicken, lean turkey for meats, and fruits and vegatables. not exceeding 50 grams of carbs a day and 1,900 calories. along with my daily workout plan.

  17. those calories are low for your size. you don't want to drop weight too quickly, it'll just rebound easier. you don't want to lose more than 2-3 lbs a week

  18. try closer to to 2500 calories and see how your progress is after a few weeks. if you drop too fast your body will stop dropping fat, because you're almost starting yourself, especially at that weight

  19. ok i will put a link 2morrow wen i start to my post in training forum

    It's advice like this that only lets people work out for a short amount of time and then quit because they overdo it. I do agree with you on this for someone to advance themselves later, but for a beginning program, he could start off at just 3 days a week and see good progress and then adjust and add more in. To the OP, like someone else said, start with tracking your calories and figuring out what you're eating that's hindering your progress and adjust accordingly.

  25. okay. so i just gotta make sure i dont over do it right. i have been tracking my calories and i'm eating between 2,200 and 2,650 daily.

  26. hate to sound confusing but what i specifically wanna do is get my upper body stronger and bigger. and my waist and gut down to about 34" from the current 48" . but i wanna be strong and big as hell up top. should i bulk or cut 1st. don't really car about BF as long as its below like 20% which is down from current 36%. wanna get my thighs down as well. sorry for sounding confusing.

    That is classic. lol i apologize for my english. at times i don't realize what i am doing.

    When i started at 300+ lbs, i was eating between 2400-2600 cal a day and losing 1 to 1.5 a week. I started out going balls to the wall and hit a wall in about 2 months. I simplified everything and made better progress and was able to stick with a program. Don't worry about "bulking" or "cutting" just focus on calorie intake and making changes to eat better foods, and focus on compound movements (bench press, squats) and go from there later on. It's a marathon not a sprint.

  29. okay. so i should get back in the mix and get comfortable. and then once i find out what works best for me implement it into my daily until it stops working and then change up again. since everyone and everybody type is different. does this sound about right. because i have been told continuosly that no matter what the most important thing is what and when i eat.

    uuuhhhh

    you quoted my post but are you sure you meant to???
    if so re read what I put....

    i said work UP TO 5 days a week, NO CARDIO at first and Drop cals incrementally not drastically and save good fat burners for once plateaus and sticking points are reached.... ????

    How is that something that would cause them to burn out of the bat? It specifically helps them ease into it and continue to progress
