Default I don't understand!

First let me say I am sorry for asking a question that has already been adressed. Now for my question. Can some one spell it out for me in a simple as possible answer, what do I need to buy to help reach my goals? Here are my goals:
1-To loose some weight. I weigh 190lbs and am 6'0 tall and 33 years old. I have the famous "LOVE HANDLES" and some what of a gut.

2-To gain musle mass and strength.
I work out at least 3-4 days a week on chest and arms with some delts being thrown in. Also some obliques to help rid the handles.

I have read a lot on here about eating this and that, drinking this and that. When do I need to eat what type of food and drink what type of shake and what kind do I buy?

Thank you for any info. This is a great site and yo guys seem to be knowledgeable. Again I am new to the system.

Add some cardio that can help you lose your love handles eat chicken and high protien food avoid soda and other sweets. whey protien shake powder is what you should buy.

you need a solid diet plan. Check out the ckd, search it online there are many resources. the biggest thing to do is ger a plan, and stick to it. decide your meals on sunday, and prep them for the week. If the low carb diet isnt for you, check out the clean bulk 101 sticky. You can adjust your caloric intake to a deficit and use that as a cutting diet.

as far as training goes, WM7 hit the nail on the head, moderate cardio, and a good training split, you cant forget to lift legs, quads are the single largest muscles in your body. the more muscle you have, the better your body will burn fat.

You can't do chest and arms 3-4 days a week. Your just wasting your time. You MUST to your full body at least once a week and actually that is all you need. Also do the /CKD

Dr. X, why do you say I can't do my chest and arms 3 days a week? Why do you think I'm wasting my time? I need clarification.

Your growing when your body is repairing it's self. If you don't let your muscles repair they will not grow. You just continue to break them down. Thus wasting your time. Also your whole body will grow much better if you train all of it. Especially legs. If you want to grow your upper body you must train your legs, and you must work your back. You only need to train each body part once a week. Use those 4 days to do

Day one Chest and tri's
Day 2 Legs
Day 3 off
Day 4 Back and bi's
Day 5 shoulders and traps
Day 6-7 off

If you want you can swap the arms
chest and bi's and back and tri's

Im going to start breaking limbs - A quick article on increased test leves - Testosterone Training By Chris Thibaudeau Most of the original data is from the 70-98.

Dr X, laid it out. Overtraining will do nothing. You will most likely not up the weight, and keep spinning your wheels. Hrdgain said something earlier on the overtraining.

Your body needs rest to grow. some people do 1-2 workouts per bodypart each week. If a full body split, 3 times a week still works depending on volume..... All in all, Id use a split liek what x recommended to start.

You wont be losing your love handles right away, so dont be discouraged. Ive been on my lifestyle change for 8 months or so, went from a 36 to fitting pants I used to wear in high school. I have some belly still, but the body is a whole package deal. Ive been losing inces on my arms, legs, stomach... and its great.

Get a plan, and stick to it like hrdgain said. The CKD is easy once you try it for 3 weeks, the first 2 are the hardest. Personally, I prefer the clean bulk with a calorie deficit, or carb cycling.

Fat loss is fast, muscle gain is slow. You don't need to focus solely on one, then the other (ie. bulk, cut). 90% of people trying to focus only on cutting or bulking usually lose some musle mass during cutting, or put on fat during a bulk. Just clean up your diet like everyone else said, change your split to like the one Dr.X mentioned, and increase the cardio. I think the most effective time for cardio is upon awakening. Just a brisk walk or light jog 45 minutes worth before you go to work. Then when you come home, lift. Pretty simple. You can in fact put on muscle while loosing fat. It just takes longer but at least you don't sacrifice one thing for another.
