Looks pretty good. Try it for awhile and measure your progress. If your fat loss slows, you will have to change some things up.
And I won't resist saying this (imagine a nagging parent-type voice): There are better carbohydrates to choose from than Cheerios (highly processed) - - -but then again, there are a lot of carbohydrates that are much worse than Cheerios. The more you choose your carbs from whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegies, the better off you are.
The thing that is likely to bite you first is your selected calorie level as it may be too low for your age, height, weight, and activity level. This is very possible, especially if your weight training and cardio work are intense. Calorie deficits tell the body to slow down and change up some enzymes (more fat storing less fat burning)so that "this time of famine" can be gotten through without too much damage. The larger the calorie deficit, the more your body fights to be a fat horder instead of a fat burner. Here is one trick that works for some people (I haven't tried it): Do your exercise and calorie count as planned but for one day each week, eat about 2500 calories.
Hey guys! I'm starting a new weight lose and fitness program and am looking for advice and tips. Here's what I'm doing so far:
I do weight training 3X a week. I do areobics 1X a week. I do the treadmill and bike for 15 min. 2X a week. I jump on a mini-trampoline anywhere from 15 min. to 1 hr 2X a week. I read the serving sizes and try to follow them everyday. I try not to go above 1550 calories.For breakfast I will have Cheerios or something like that. For lunch I will have a sandwhich or soup. For dinner, it varies from day to day but for the most part involves meat, corn, and potatos. For a snack if I get hungry I have a granola bar or a piece of fruit.
Now I'll tell you a little about myself: I'm 16 years old and am 5'7. I weigh 180 lbs. But I look like I wiehg 150 b/c of my height. I want to lose about 50 pounds by summer.
So there you have it. Am I doing good so far? How long do you thinkit will take me to lose weight? Any tips or advice?
Thanks a lot guys! I really appreciate it!
