you cannot spot reduce fat. If you lose weight the fat will come from all over the body. For most men the mid/lower section is the last to go.

Short, quick bursts of exercise. i.e. 30 seconds jump roping fast 15 off, go till you die.

best way to loos fat is to watch ur calories, u can train as hard as u want but if u don't watch what u eat u won't see results

cardio exercises like running/jogging, swimming, cycling, skipping....

Also watch what you eat...

Be patient, it takes time dont expect all the fat to disappear after 30mns of running......

I disagree, if you in fact train hard you can allow yourself to snack once in a while. Hell, Winky Wright trains his ass off and munches down dozens of crispy cream donuts and he's ripped for all of his fights. I myself snack a little almost everyday, but when I compensate with hard work I see myself losing flab sooner than gaining it.

I'm not saying you can eat all the Ben & Jerries and cheese cake you want as that will seriously affect your performance while training and will increase chances of getting heart disfunctions. Just know your own limits and find a balance, the results speak for themselves.

Proper Diet.. and Low impact Aerobics...I.E. swimming , Cycling,.. Jogging is also great,, BUT you can suffer Knee and back problems.. A better solution is Climbing stairs...Lots of them...

If you saw the Countdown to Hopkins-Wright, Winky was allowed only 1 Krispy Kreme donut per week, or something like that. You could see how badly he wanted 1, it took him a few minutes to pick which 1 he would take from the box, lol

AGREED
You can have days where you can just pig out
Next day knowing youve ate all the junk food you will be even more motivated
Also doing situps while youre pretty fat is not a good idea as you will just look fatter as the muscle builds under the fat

Here you go guy...

1) eat a small meal immediately after you wake to start start your metabolism as soon as possible....continue by eating 5-6 small meals throughout the course of the day never waiting more than 3 hrs in between as these meals will be stored as fat....

2) drink at least 1 gallon of water each day...this will act as an appetite suppressant, burn excess calories and flush toxins through your body....make sure to take a multivitamin as well since you will be drinking a lot of water...

3) cut out all refined simple sugars and no carbs good or bad, after 4pm...

4) Incorporate interval training in your cardio routine...example...I run 5.5 mph on a 50% incline for 5 minutes, i rest at a fast walk for 3 minutes and repeat 5 times....although keeping your heart rate at 60 -70% of its maximum
you burn strictly fat while you are training, intervals will boost your metablism for a much longer time after your workout....

Heavy lifting and right diet.

HIIT is also good, but don't OD on it. Once or twice a week is sufficient.

But heavy lifting is your best bet to burn fat AND save muscle(which is otherwise burned, if you go for just a lot of cardio)

From my own experience... diet and plenty of Cardio exercise and weights are the way to get rid of excess fat.
I have a fruit smoothie every morning to kick start my metabolism.
Alternate days I will also eat a bowl of Porridge oats.
For lunch I will eat a large Tuna Salad alternating days where I have potatoes included.
At Dinner time I will eat a decent freshly prepared meal like Salmon & Vegetables or a Stir-fry with lean meat.
Once a week I allow myself a "treat meal" where I eat anything I want.
I currently do 2- 4 hours a day of cycling.
I will also throw in Press-ups and sit-ups.
I also have alternate days of hitting the weights and will usually have Fridays as a rest day doing nothing more than running my dogs for an hour or so.
For me the biggest key is sticking to the diet of freshly prepared meals.
Eating fast food like Pizza & Burgers is a one way ticket to gutsville.
Bottom line is you have to discipline yourself.
You should notice results within a couple of weeks and the bonus is once you are in the routine it gets easier and you find you can train harder and longer.

You need carbs in your diet. If you'd like, no carbs after 8, but you can have a handful at dinner (around 6 pm

ITs ****ing crazy how some of you guys in here make it sound to loose fat! If fat really was as easy to burn as you guys make it sound then no one in the ****ing world would have a oz of fat on thier body! Its not as easy as JUST EATING RIGHT AND RUNNING YOUR ASS OFF! I even tested it out myself! for 8 weeks straight about a month ago I Dieted VERY VERY strickly and did not even touch or drink anything or eat anything bad for me and I worked out 6 days out of the week 3 days were boxing gym days and the other 3 were long distance running days where I ran 4-6 miles 3 days a week. Starting weight was 167 when I was done end weight was 168!

I don't know loads about losing weight - but since 02/02/08 I've been following something fairly strict and I've come from 14st 7 to 13st 10...

I have ate a good mix of 'good stuff' every day (tuna, vegetables, fruit, baked potatoes, grilled chicken) and I have drank about 2-3 litres of water. I've also done cardio 5 days a week (for 30-40 mins at mixed intensity) and sit-ups/press ups every night. Not eating at night is a swine but apparently it's worth not doing!

Sadly - at 13st 10lbs (192?) and 5ft 10 (178 cm) I'm still quite tubby; but, things are working quite well to burn fat.

(p.s. this is my first post so please don't butcher me if this turns out to be just me getting lucky!)

Listen bud, you should calm down a little. These guys are trying to help and the advise they give is the right thing to do. Losing weight is simple. Just takes dedication and a good diet. There's no magical way to do it. You just have to understand your body and diet. Simple as that.

Eliminate 95% of fats and carbs on your diet and you will burn fat with your workouts guarantied. If you don't, then it's because you have none to burn and the only way to lose a few more pounds is to dehydrate yourself before a fight. Speaking from personal experience, I used to walk around 15# heavier then I was fighting and would go on no fat or carbs crash diets 2 weeks before I faught and never had problems losing the weight. You can also use this crash det to lose the weight you want and when it's lost, keep an eye n your diet. I'm actually doing it right now as I have 35# to lose before I can fight again. I havn't faught in a few years so it will take me a little bit of time to get back into fighting shape. I figure it will take me 3 or 4 weeks to lose 30#.

like I said, you have to understand your body and how it reacts to food. But you eliminate fats and carbs off your diet and YOU WILL burn fat when working out.

Now you may ask: How do I find foods that have no fat or carbs? I'll give you my crash diet I used to use when I was fighting. But I don't recommend doing it for more then 2 weeks for nutrition purposes. Tuna and low fat, low carbs protein shakes mixed with water or skim milk. That's the simpleless diet you will ever be on. You'll feel like you have no energy as your carb intake is very low to none but the key is to suck it up and cntinue working out to burn that extra fat.

I think the Carb diet is the stupidest new diet technique on the planet. 1) Carbs = Energy. Your loosing vital nutrients not eating them 2) If you cut out carbs, you have to cut them out of your diet for the rest of your life, to keep that weight off.

Also, with fats. Your body needs fats no matter how you put it.

"The fact is: we all need fats. Fats helps nutrient absorption, nerve transmission, maintaining cell membrane integrity etc. However, when consumed in excess amount, fats contribute to weight gain, heart disease and certain types of cancer. Fats are not created equal. Some fats promote our health positively while other increase our risks of heart disease. The key is to replace bad fats with good fats in our diet."

Fried Foods, Fatty Cheesebirgers, Fries = Bad

Fish Oil, Olive oil, All types of nuts = Good For you!

Just diet correctly and run. You might be same or gain weight but that might be muscle. Your pot belly might shirnk in. But this is only for losing fat, I'm not too sure how to lose weight. (None fat people might need to lose weight too for matches or stuff)

this thread is ridiculous........

Ive seen all kinds of sh#% in here............all kinds of methods and most are wrong.

For some people in order to lose weight they have to consume more calories than they do normally...when you starve yourself throughout the course of a day your body stores anything eaten as fat, period.....if you feed yourself every 3 hours a small portion well balanced meal your metabolism will elevate...

If you run 5 miles a day, box and then eat 1500 cal that day.....you will lose muscle mass and your body will become catabolic....you will lose muscle not fat, deplete your body of nutrients and if continued for more than a week you will be at risk for serious injuries........I know people that advise this routine have not a clue....

Read a couple of the posts i wrote about fish oil, omega 3's 6's with GLA, CLA and L-carnitine with alpha lipoic acid.....every one should know what these essential fatty acids do and how they transport long chain fatty acids to mitochondria for use as energy.....

2 weeks ago I began cutting....i did not severly alter my diet, i did not cut my caloric intake, I did not start to run daily marathons, I didnt cut carbs from my diet....... I added these essential fatty acids, drank a gallon of water a day minimum and I have lost 13lbs in 2 weeks...........

bottom line: You need to understand how the body operates before you come to a conclusion about what to feed it.......

Rane54 has the idea

Muscle burns fat....the more you have the more fat you will burn....

But if he has to worry about making weight...its a catch 22 because muscle also weighs more than fat......

Weight training keeps your metabolic rate elevated far after each session as well....so you are right....

Just find a healthy-ish diet that you maintain (if your not really obese) your weight. Portion ****ing control people, 1 plate no seconds unless your starved because you worked ****ing hard all day. Not in a book either since they are all gimmicks and/or for very fat individuals. Now throw in a couple snacks too (bananas, apples, small yogurt, etc) between lunch and supper or even after supper too. Most people say dont eat carbs or whatever at such & such time but **** that, if your still a bit hungry eat a bit just to settle the stomach a bit so you can sleep (you dont feel hungry when sleeping anyways) but make it fruit or something obviously healthy. Work out as well, running is great, intervals, bodyweight exercises (research them there are tonnes of tough and effective ones) anything but watching TV. 30-60 minutes is all you need.

There now you know. Its simpler than you guys make it.

do a combination of long distance running and interval training ( sprints up hills ) throughout the week

make it so its a routine thing that ur goin out and doin road work clockin ur miles in, u will see results in no time

also eat right and thats just common sense

Stairs, stairs and more stairs.

Failing that try inclined sprinting. Jogging takes much longer for the same results. Sprint until failure, get up and sprint again.

Oh and btw a lot of people here think that situps reduce fat in your midsection. Wrong. You can have the nicest six pack in the world but it will be hidden behind the fat unless you do cardio.

Hope it helps T you flashy mofo.

Try out HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)

It apparently burns more fat than long drawn out aerobic runs. I'm only just starting it myself after building an aerebic base.

Google HIIT and check it out!
