    Just doing those things, your body will thank you.

    I've recently dropped 20kgs of fat. It took me 3mths of careful eating (with the help of a dietician), and 2 to 3 cardio sessions per day (swimming, walking and biking), with a heart rate monitor to keep the workouts in certain zones (for the walking and swimming), for maximum burning of fat for energy.

    When you get the eating right, drink heaps of water, and do the right kind of cardio at the right heart rate, the excess fat comes off pretty quick. I went from 26% body fat down to 10.5% body fat, dropping 20kgs of fat and adding 1.4kgs of lean muscle, and the blood pressure dropped from the high 140s down to the low 120s, which was the main thing.

    I'm at 118kgs right now which is pretty big. Been getting in better shape in terms of stamina and energy levels in general though. I have always been one to be able to out pace others my size easily but I doubt that will last more than a few years before it finally gets to me physically. Family has a history of heart attacks so it's time to get my butt in gear.

    Congratulations on the weight loss. This thread is making me get a health check.

    The only thing I have really done so far for dieting is the salad and water, even if I'm not thirsty I have 4-5 bottles a day vs the 1 bottle a day. Then I found a light salad dressing that I liked along with some iceberg lettuce and ate a plate of that before dinner. Most of the calories taken in from it are mainly the dressing and if you using something light or strong, you don't need much. I get maybe an extra 30 calories on my plate from dressing if it's heavy and I eat half as much for dinner as I used to.

    Going to be making my own hardtack again too http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Hardtack people seem to hate the stuff but I have a taste for it no matter how simple it is to make (I usually just do 2 cups flour to 1 or less cups of water and just bake it ) Feels heavy in my stomach and while it's not exactly healthy it still beats me buying a bag of chips and eating the whole thing. Of course I make sure I'm eating right but I am slowly substituting crappy foods with low calorie stuff. Along with cut up apples with a 1 tsp of cinnamon and a shallow filling of water and microwave it till it turns to mush. I eat anything I guess.

    My brother was in professional BB and powerlifting and I am working on it right now too. Anybody who did it knows that human body is not designed to be so strong. Unfortunately it's absolutely impossible to get to such level without using illegal supplements. So the key of the diet is... AS injections or pills(rarely because they mostly damage the liver a lot)

    Congrats to those who successfully works on losing weight. Bodybuilders have pretty good techniques to do it fast. They have to get lean before the competitions because while they develop the mass, they gain lots of fat. Work-out big muscle groups and run for 20-40 minutes 3-4 days a week and everything unneeded will disappear within few months while lean muscles will still be there

    Depends what you want to do size and strengh are 2 different things...

    The excerises most of these people show off with is using the big muscle groups try getting them curling a dumbell with some serious weight...

    Theirs a lad in my local gym who can dead lift alot however him attempting to dumbell curl 12kg for 12 reps 3 sets basicly ends his training session with me 12kg is nothing...

    Have read somewhere..."If you were build like a bull then you will not need to take steroids. Though I think even the bulls have to take them because being the strongest man isn't easy thing. They are using massive weighs all day. Also your height will matter." Of course, he ate thousands of calories daily to be there, like we eat linux commands

    That's mostly true about the small group excercises... Even though 12kg is unbelievable. Normally they do the same set of exercises as all the people plus pay some attention to their specific ones. High reps for them is a problem because of the size. So they do a lot of low reps or static* things.

    Static ones - my favorites. I read a book about one of the strongest people ever who was using those and who basically invented this type of training. He is Russian, but actually was living in US for many years after WW2. He was 5'5" and 166lb at maximum. Being so small the guy lifted a horse

    Hmmm, here's some things that helped me -

    1. Count calories and create a caloric deficit.

    The average bloke's body will need around 2000 calaries a day just to function, even if they were lying on a couch watching TV all day, so if you eat less than that, your body will be forced to source energy from fat to make up for the deficit and this will shrink your fat cells and cause you to lose weight.

    You don't need to do any cardio to lose fat, and some dieticians suggest no cardio for some of their clients, as cardio just makes you hungry, with the body having to source energy, and some folks can't resist the hunger that results after cardio sessions, so they end up binge eating.

    I shredded 20kgs of fat from 26% body fat down to 10.5% body fat in around 3mths by working on a 3000 calorie per day deficit, after food and cardio workouts were taken into account. I tracked my food intake and cardio on an iPad app called MyNetDiary.

    I had 2 cardio sessions per day, with a 60 minute treadmill walk in the morning @ 120bpm and a 60 minute bike ride at night @ 100bpm. I was also eating around 1100 calories per day, giving me an approximate caloric deficit of around 3000 cals per day, when your DRI (Daily Recommended Intake of calories) and cardio sessions are taken into account, and that would be close on 250g of fat loss per day, give or take.

    For the first mth, I stumbled about a bit, with the fat dropping, but it wasn't until I got that MyNetDiary iPad app, and could plan out my food and cardio sessions, and see some hard numbers at the end of each day, that it all came together for me, and from then on the fat fell off fast. I dropped around 12kgs in the last mth alone, as I was on a 12 week program with this dietician I was seeing once a week, and she was tracking my results and whatnot.

    2. Drink lots of water, and no sugar drinks etc.

    This is obvious and has so many health benefits, too numerous to mention. Just replacing sugar drinks with water will be a huge positive for your body.

    3. Replace coffee with Green tea.

    Don't ask me how, but green tea is really good for you and can help in fat loss.

    3. Have a high fibre breakfast.

    I generally have around 23g of fibre in my breakfast, and this is great for keeping me feeling full, and helps the digestive system out to no end. For breakfast I'd have a shake in lite milk with 30g of psyillium husk added, 1 piece of rye toast and a green tea. I also have 250ml of water and 6 x 1500mg fish oil tablets. That breakfast gives me a good chunk of carbs, protein and fibre and easily gets me through my morning workout (swimming, walking or a bike session) up to lunch.

    4. Plan your meals -

    My meals are all planned out at least a week in advance, on my iPad app, MyNetDiary. My lunch and dinners looks like 150g of veges, 1 slice of rye bread and 100g of organic (no hormones etc) red meat. Sometimes I alternate organic chicken breasts in there instead of the red meat. That's the plate divided up into 3 with veges, meat and bread, so there's a good balance there. I also drink 250ml of water before each meal too. My snacks are yogurt mixed in with LSA and strawberries ontop, or an apple.

    5. Move your body -

    Your body loves movement, and a simple thing as a 30 minute gentle paced walk before breakfast, will do wonders for your body.

    So that's pretty much how I shred 20kgs of fat pretty quick. Hope that helps others, as it's such a fantastic feeling to go out in public wearing your new shirt that's an "L" or "M" (depending on the shirt maker) instead of "XXXL", tucked into your nice tight blue jeans, and show off a little.

    Bob gave good advice above. Just wanted to say you can go to your doctor and he can tell your daily caloric usage based on factors of age, weight, sex, bmi, activity level, etc. Once you know the the number of calories your body uses every day you just want to take eat less calories than your needs. It really is that simple. Look for foods that are high in nutritional value, low in calories and fill you up. Eat multiple times a day and eat slowly to prevent overeating. My advice (not professional) is to reduce your caloric intake below your daily value to a set percentage you are comfortable with, then use exercise as a bonus to further increase your caloric differential.. not an excuse to eat more. And as said above, simple things like drinking water instead of sugar drinks will likely shave a few hundred calories off your daily diet at least.
