In college I would play basketball 6 times a week and never worried about my weight. I am hoping to get back into cardio and/ or working out and dieting. If any one has any advice with meals, workouts, fitness apps, ANYTHING! They would all be appreciated..

App: MyFitnessPal

It may be a bit overkill for what you're looking to do, but learn to count macros and use the app to help keep track. It's true weight loss is calories in vs calories expended, but counting macros should help keep up the quality of the food you eat.

If you're not interested in buying a food scale and keeping track of all kinds of data, just doing a few basic things like drinking A LOT of water and adding a 20-30 minute walk per day will help a lot. Biking a few times a week on top of that would be even better, since biking will simultaneously improve your aerobic fitness and also build muscle, which is an important factor in burning fat. Machines like ellipticals are great for cardiovascular health, but won't actually burn any fat and you may fall into a trap of "treating" yourself after a workout to something that will only hinder your progress.

If you have access to a pool or body of water, swimming is another great exercise since it's pretty much no impact on joints/overall body, but will also burn the most amount of calories in the shortest amount of time.

The key is consistency: keep up your exercises, stay on track with healthy eating, and again drink lots of water.

Good luck. cheers.gif

+1 swimming will chop you up. i'm an on-again, off-again masters swimmer and 4x per week is a little boring but if you don't have a great stroke you will learn a physical skill as well. i kind of hate the pool so open water swimming is even better for me. you burn calories just being in colder water and its' way way way more fun but be safe and aware of your environment. i just started training for a half marathon in the coming winter and will probably go back to the pool over the summer besides.

 

i've found that once my metabolism turns on i burn calories in my sleep. 6'3", 210 and i'm not planning on renovating my diet and will probably lose 15 lbs over the next 2-3 months and be at fighting weight. i think exercise is a good place to start since it's engaging and goal-oriented without deprivation. i'll tweak my diet to make sure i'm getting what i need and avoid what makes me feel off. after that i won't count anything and just monitor myself with a scale. everybody's different.

So about a month ago i saw this busted stand for drum cymbals and since i love repurposing things i knew i would find a use for it.fast forward to a week ago i found this tired old busted ass mannequin minus base.
Half hour later we got us a new member of the team.
He took some shrapnel to the shoulder and the top is missing but thats okay.
I shall name him Mike Banning because he is indestructible.

About weightloss.one word:stairmaster.
I eat whatever i want and drink beer vodka etc at least once a or twice a week.
About 205 now was all the way up to 229.
I was lifting weights one hour a day three times a week couldnt lose a pound.
Cut weights to 20 min and started doing 40 min of stairmaster 3 times a week.
Went to 200 in about a year and down to size 40 from42.
If you have will power and can count calories thats great but if you cant like me you are fucked.need to do something drastic.
I swear bu stairmaster though i can run an hour on the treadmill without breaking a sweat but the stairs just kicks my ass.
BONUS thats where all the honeys are.

Just to throw my hat in the weight loss ring since I know a little bit about physiology. If you're doing nothing, any exercise regularly is gonna make a big difference. I will say the easiest thing you can do is increase your lean protein intake because you'll end up losing weight without trying. Also, my recommendation for exercise would be a lifting regimen that includes squats, deadlifts, and bench press because it builds lean muscle mass and even before you get to your weight loss goals, you'll start looking better. It's also the most forgiving because once you start building muscle and a strength base, even if you get off track, it's easier to get back on track, at least in my experience. Aerobic capacity is easier to lose, and takes more time to develop. I could go deeper into the physiology and other aspects, but I'll save that for PM's.
