    As you said yourself - You've got to start somewhere and it can only get better...unless it gets worse.

    ur diet looks pretty clean man it should be fine for cutting fat and not losing any muscle since ur carbs and protein are pretty balanced.

    Tweak and I are currently working on a diet over AIM and it's pretty similar to his since he got great results and we are pretty much the same body type I'ma give it a go. If I hit a wall w/ that diet then I'm gonna cycle carbs. I already have been looking into it. Fiaz's info is great stuff too...how can I not loose fat w/ you guys looking out for me?

    walking will get the job done as far as fat loss in concerned.. running is no good if your looking to maintain as much muscle as possible.. many will disagree with me on this subject.. but oh well. start with 15 mins incline walk, walk at a pace where you can still hold a conversation with someone next to you.. just my advice..

    Yea I dont have a problem sticking to diets for the most part. I'm already seeing and feeling results so I don't think I'll have a problem.

    Cardio


    Ran for 9:04 today and it was alright. I struggled a little towards the end but I managed. Tomorrow I will run for 9:30 and I should be alright. I will have to run earlier in the day because I have to go to a wedding rehersal dinner at 5:30 tomorrow so I will run early. We will see how that works out. Until then...

    Hey man, read your comment in my log. Thanks

    Serb's right, you will lose muscle this way, but like you I also have a hard time losing weight without it. Running or swimming does it for me. And you like to run

    If you keep bumping up the time you'll be running over 20 minutes in no time, which is a good place to shoot for as far as cardiovascular fitness and weight loss goes. A lot of it is mental and figuring out how to pace yourself. I started running in like 7th grade, doing a mile at a time. In 9th grade I was doing two miles, then I ran cross country as a junior and senior, and now I can pretty much go forever. That's not because I'm sweet, it's just 'cause I know how to do it now.

    My cross country coach believed in a 'long and strong' approach; run long distance one day at a moderate pace, then go shorter distance the next day at a faster tempo. On the 'strong' days you could also include hill sprints, repeats, whatever you feel like. That works pretty good for me, but go with how your body feels. You might want to find a track or measure out a mile course near your house and do that every other day, and try to beat your previous times. On days you're not doing the mile, try and go for a longer time than you've done before regardless of how fast you're going.

    Also, make sure you've got some good shoes. A bad pair of running shoes will destroy you. Finally, and possibly most importantly, take at least one day off a week!!! New runners can even take 2-3 days off from running a week. Like weightlifting, your body needs the time to recover. Running puts a lot of strain on the body.

    I hope I didn't tell you anything you didn't already know. Let me know if I can help with anything, and good luck with the cutting!

    Hey man thanks for the great info. I will prolly incorporate the long and strong approach for the first couple of weeks to get me ready for HIIT. I have a fair bit of knowledge about running because my mom runs marathons a lot. I also know the value of a good running shoe, I run in Asics which is what she runs in and I have not had any problems. Thanks for the advices man. Repped.

    Yeah, she'll know more than I do. That's awesome! I might do a marathon some day.

    Good luck on the HIIT; running will definitely get you a good base endurance for other training.

    Yea I agree...she does know more about running but not about diet and stuff. So we kind of help each other out. I'm hoping this form of cardio will help with that hard HIIT too. Thanks again man.
