    It's true :o

    I read through the Newb Guide to fat loss and the weight lifting loses weight thread, and I have a pretty good understanding on what to do.

    I want your guy's suggestions on which route to take.....

    My understanding is that the low carb diet looses weight faster although its harder to keep it off, as the low fat diet is longer to loose weight although its more of a lifestyle change.

    So basically which should I concern more on avoiding? Carbs or Fat?

    I plan on doing like 20-30 minutes of cardio per day, what weight lifting should I do?

    Anything else I should know? Bare with me :hs:

    I can tell right now that you're not committed to losing fat.

    thats very inconvienient for me, thats why I need something for cardio, and I have weights.

    Once I get more into shape and I start feeling better (hopefully :hs: ) I'll buy more stuff for a home gym

    run outside, lift weights inside (assuming you have all benches/machines you need which is unlikley) and cut down the calories, up the protein

    If you're very new to all of this, you'll see results just from starting a regular cardio regime and making some simple changes: more protein, more veggies, lots of water, cut out refined white bread and sugar for the most part.

    Keep reading, get informed, you'll do just fine :wiggle: good luck!

    buy a power rack, olympic bar, bench and some weights, cost you less than a grand and will be far more beneficial to body composition than cardio will be. Will take up a footprint of say 2x2x2 metres, so not much space and will be all you need.

    do a search for 'christophers routine' this is what you should undertake

    You should start at 100 push ups a night every night until you can do them all in a row. Once you can do that fill your backpack up with your books and repeat.

    You should also do 1000 crunches a night too.
