There are Less than 90days till the END of 2010
This is an opportunity for you to look great by Year's end.
But you still need to start now.
Here's the fat loss basics (if you need more info see below):
You need to create a caloric deficit - no two ways about it - you must burn more than you consume. But that doesn't just mean eat less.
The most effective way to create that deficit is to use a combination of diet and exercise
Your diet should consist of lean proteins, fruits and vegetables.
Keep starches and refined carbs to a minimum.
Keep your fluid intake high (water only), and try to eat at least 4-5 small meals per day.
This will help maintain blood sugar levels and keep you from blowing your diet.
Exercise - interval training and metabolic resistance training will provide the most bang-for-your buck. Steady state aerobic training just doesn't burn enough calories for your goals right now, and a bodypart training split will be less effective than total body training for fat loss.
Try to exercise at least four to six days per week - two to three days of interval based cardio and two to three days of resistance training.
Supplements: there is almost nothing that will make a difference. Sorry. Certain supplements can boost metabolism, or increase your energy somewhat and these may be useful - but in terms of real world "pounds of fat lost" I have yet to see anything that really made a difference. A multivitamin and a fish oil supplement are vital though - but more for your overall health. a protein shake or meal replacement powder can be useful for convenience but are nothing more than high quality food.
