    The past year I kind of didn't watch what I eat.

    5 foot 9-10ish
    170 lbs currently.

    I put on a nice beer belly even though I don't drink that often (1-2 days a week max)

    My diet was pretty poor and my caloric intake was probably 2500 a day at most (eating fast food for lunch when I had my internship)

    since I have been back to school, about 2 weeks....my diet has been real consistant....

    Breakfast 8 AM : Bagel with Plain Cream cheese w/glass of milk
    Lunch 12PM: Chicken Salad on 12 Grain Bread with lettuce and tomato/side of baby carrots
    Dinner: Either: Chicken Breast/Tilapia/Salmon (all baked) with 4-6 portobello mushrooms and a frozen thing of creamed spinach microwaved.

    I have cut down on snacking, as I currently eat just these 3 meals a day. If i get real hungry in class I will bite on a small thing of nuts or trail mix.

    MY question: Will my calorie intake (somewhere around 1200 day) along with 15-20 mins of light jogging help me lose a good amount of weight ~10-20 lbs?

    I have finally set a diet for myself and want to start a workout plan to help burn fat. This motivation came from out of nowhere! HELP ME OT!

    BIG Thanks in advance!

    you'll lose weight but you'll come out of it looking skinny/fat most likely. read the stickies and start lifting.

    skinnyfat is a term used to describe someone that is "skinny" but has no muscle mass, so there is no definition to the muscle groups.

    diet dictates gains, not routine
