Alright guys - thanks for the tips. I will remodel my diet/exercise plan. Will report back in 8 weeks - hopefully without a gut.

Extend your cardio past 45 minutes to a solid hour. That's were you really start to burn fat.

This is simply not true. There is a point where your body switches to burning fuel from fat stores, but it's not at an hour- it's usually around 2000 calories, or 20 miles. This is what marathoners call "hitting the wall".

That doesn't mean that you shouldn't do an hour cardio, by all means, go ahead- but you're not going to magically burn fat at this level. You're just going to burn the additional calories that you would expect to burn running 15 minutes extra-maybe about 100-150, depending on your speed.

'hitting the wall' is a depletion of glycogen...the body oxidizes fat all the time.

why, you are right, the gist of my point was 45 minutes versus an hour cardio doesn't lead to a magical increase in the amount of fat you burn- you're burning fat at the same rate you were burning at 45 minutes, just extended to an hour.

Your body oxidizes fat at a constant rate up until it's totally depleted of glycogen. You're not going to deplete your body of glycogen after an hour cardio.

Hello,

Go to your doctor and have your thyroid gland checked by giving a sample of blood.

Sincere regards,

try cutting out grains completely. Look into the paleo diet or caveman diet.

Expand on that. Why is it dumb? Not doubting you; but it would be nice to have an explanation.

do massive running/ cardio/stairmaster. every day or almost every day.

monitor your diet. no junky foods and keep your calories to moderation or minimum.

you'll lose your gut fast.

Come on, this is why. You know you're not gonna get that. It's easier for him to just talk shit about every plan ever mentioned in any BC thread.

He has a calorie-controlled diet...eliminating a food group won't cut his calories or add to weight loss. It just makes dieting more difficult for no real reason.

I can't help that some people can't tell their ass from a hole in the ground, and I don't intend to give lectures on the differences between rectums and excavations.

In my own experience, cutting carbs, caveman diets - whatever you want to call it - are effective if you have a lot of body fat to get rid of. The high protein/fat and low carbs reduce appetite which makes cutting calories easier, and also gets rid of a lot of water weight in the first week which encourages dieters to stick with it long term. The main advantage, I think, is the appetite suppressant effect; otherwise you are just cutting calories like any other diet. Once you get down to the last few vanity pounds though, low carbing isn't that effective. At that point if you really care to look good with a shirt off you need to hit the weights, hit the cardio, and eat a balanced diet while exercising portion control and counting calories if need be. There is no magic bullet.
