i dont totally know a diet for you but if u wonna look good n take off ur shirt show off your pack and stuff your gonna have to do sum running throughout the week. you said you dont care about strength but lifting could be helpful for you too

check out a ckd diet since you probably dont wanna lose muscle that u already have, i too hate cardio so i know what u mean u still have to do it, its essential to the process.

so just run a lot and bench or what? I really have no idea how long to run for. . . it sucks that im not educated on this stuff but im trying to learn. . . so im guessing running every single day wouldnt hurt. . . should I do crunches and push ups too?

i think its 20 mins a day without risk of losing muscle if you dont care about that then you can go more

yea u can run everyday if u want maybe in the morning it would be best since your body is in a fasted state then at night u can do pushups, sit ups, dips between chairs, throw a broom stick over the back of 2 chairs and do rows, these are all just excersices using your bodyweight though once u get comfortable with these then go out and join a gym or u can just skip these exercises and head straight for the gym but until u find a good one where u want to work out these will be okay to get yourself familiar with workouts your gunna be doing with real weight

You also can consider cutting fast food and soda out of your diet. It helps a lot

It's all about the diet. You can run your ass off and still not look good if your diet is not in check. There is info on the board on a CKD diet.

Like everyone is the key. I know cutting out the crappy food is hard (Lord knows, it was tough for me!). Here is one way to go about changing what you eat: write it down BEFORE you eat it. I kept a little notepad w/ me and every time I was going to eat something, I would write it down. I would also notate what I thought the food had in it (for example I wrote 'p' for protein, 'c' for carbs, 'f' for "bad" fat, 's' for sugars, 'ca' for lots of calories, etc.) and an exclamation point for lots

You'd be surprised how fast your mind changes when you write: Big Mac p, c, f! ca! Fries c, f! Coke s!

Plus, do you do your own food shopping? What I did at first is made a list of all the food I wanted to eat for a week and gave it to someone else to buy for me! This way, I wouldn't be tempted to mosey down the ice cream aisle (my weakness!). When you only have good food around to eat, all the better.

And, hey, I'm not hyper-psycotic about my diet. I cheat a bit. Actually, today is my cheat day. So I can have some pizza and ice cream (not at the same time tho'!). Even during the week a bit, I'll get a burger and a beer for lunch...

Summary: try a bike for cardio. write down everything you eat for a week--the diet will change.
