Worry about getting a good diet down then the rest will follow on the fat loss. I'm no expert on dieting but I've cut quite a bit of fat. This is definitely a good place to ask questions. Get a good diet in order and lift as well. Even if the scales do not show much progress you'll see it in inches lost. I am much more lean at 210lbs. than I was 199lbs, and I started at 289lbs. Good luck with it! Wish you the best..

Anyway way you put it, get your diet in check. Write down what your eating everyday, when you eat it, this will give us all a better idea of what's going on. :)

Holy crap dude. You need to eat!

I suppose I should clarify :biglaugh:

Granted I don't know the amounts of everything you're eating per meal, but just based on what you have listed there, it's not enough. Even for a cutting diet.

Based on your weight being 200 pounds, I'd say a good starting point to begin a cut would put you between 2000-2300 cals a day. Then check progress after a week or two and possibly go down from there.

You really need to get your diet in check. Up your proteins (you're for SURE not getting enough now). You want to aim for a minimum of 1g/pound bw. So 200g/day. If you're concerned about sparing some muscle mass that is.

Im just going to start working out too, so how many days a week n stuff should i work out at first and should i do cardio for cutting, if i want to loose fat, then why should i work out? Isnt that just going to make me gain weight, cause of the muscle mass? How do i get down to 170 ripped? Which way should i go?

WOW!!!!

Yes, do cardio...Yes, workout 3-4 days a week, your not going to get huge just because you workout...And YES, EAT MORE FOOD...IK said it best. Start with 2000 + cals. Write it all down, check your weight after a week or two if your not moving take away 100 cals untill you are. Protein is a must!!

selfmade 07-25-2007 05:12 PM

What kind of foods though, can anyone make like a table for me? Like a example or something?
