I personally am on DC 3 split training. So I do AB, CA, BC, etc. On C (leg days) I take the day off from cardio. I'm at the gym 4 times a week for lifting, and then 3 - 5 days I'll do cardio, depending. I also enjoy doing it in the morning, so by the time get to lifting, I'm no longer exhausted from my HIIT that was done in the beginning of the day, and it will also not force me to be at the gym for long stretches of time.
I have tried the slow and steady approach too while fasting, 60 minutes 12% incline 3.8 mph walk. Would burn around 800 calories with my heartmonitor. Or I could do HIIT on the same 12% incline, 1:30 at 3.3, 30 seconds at 9.0mph and then burn 850 calories in 25 minutes and then go chill in the hot tub for 20. Matter of choices I guess.

These are some great suggestions I think I will try to do cardio 5 times per week and also change
my diet some by replacing sugary drinks with Pure Whey Isolate and also try using MGN's fat burner
they have its called Trim Down Advanced and its supposed to be scientifically proven for weight loss.
Yea I think replacing sugary drinks will be a challenge for me but it will be well worth it for sure.
I really have a lot to look forward to I am expecting my first child and really want to be in great
shape for the new baby I'll need all my energy! I will be doing cardio 5 times per week also.
Try calorie free or low cal substitutes as you adjust. Ultimately water or tea, especially green tea (ecgc), should be the goal imo.
I don't know how much you actually drink but I bet if you actually logged each drink for a week meticulously, you would be shocked. Working your personal numbers gives a pretty compelling reason to quit.
What kind of drinks do you have?
Not ideal, but why not at least switch to some coke zero or something along those lines during adjustment period?

Check out my new log - TIME TO GET BACK TO WORK w/ Lecheek's Ripped Cocktail!!
Skip breakfast, ultra low carb, don't drop fat super low, 1 insane carb refeed a week, lift weights and taper volume as glycogen becomes depleted.
These are some great suggestions I will be using them all during my training period. I plan on doing
HIIT training at least 3 days per week as well as weight lifting 5 days per week this will kickstart
my metabolism. I also plan to eat at least 5 times a day and really eat clean.
Didn't know that mr. cooper thanks for the advice and yes Miss Q I am trying to lose the weight before the summer comes in.
I want to look my best last summer I had an 8 pack and I want to get that back! I know I can do it it will take some hard work
and discipline for sure but it will come I know it will. Just gotta put in the work
Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon and honey as soon as you wake up in the morning (after ), raises your metabolic level significantly. Water has significant health benefits. Through the night, your body is deprived of water, and since most of your body processes use water as a medium, your body’s machinery slows down through the night. When you drink water in the morning, it helps to rev the machinery back into gear, so it kicks up the metabolic rate. U could also press the acupuncture point below your nose and above the upper lip to increase metabolism rate. The lemon has Vitamin C, and honey has its health benefits , since they add vitamins, minerals, and flavor. So, assuming that your diet , exercise and activity level is the same, and you start drinking lemon water as soon as you wake up, it will increase your metabolic level. With an increase in your metabolic level, your body will burn more calories for the same activity.
also alternate days 15-20 mins in sauna can help you burn those xtra pounds

gotta do 1 more.. and then 1 more..
It has been said that the compostition of calories (whether 3,000kcals from brown rice or 3,000kcals from big macs) are not important in the grand scheme as both equate too 3,000kcals, and if this causes you to go over your TDEE, then weight gain will occur regardless of how 'clean' you eat. In weight loss cases its more important to monitor TOTAL calories as this will determine the amount of weight lost.
Eating 'clean' is important just to meet your micronutrient goals but will not in effect be the sole reason for weight loss, you will still have to monitor total calorie intake
Drinking Water May Speed Weight Loss, on webmd (still can't post links)
Yes, it's an article and not a stand alone, peer reviewed study. Yes, it is an article discussing the findings of referenced peer reviewed studies that can be researched independently should a reader so desire.
As I interpreted the post, water was suggested as the metabolic stimulant, the honey and lemon for additional health benefits.
Regarding lemon juice, as it is acidic, it stabilizes your blood sugar level, facilitating an environment conducive to weight loss.
Drinking adequate levels of water, and spiking it with lemon juice, is conducive to weight loss but it is not a magic bullet.
