Biking is good. I used to bike every night for about 30 mins to 1 hour to try to burn off most o the stuff i would eat for dinner. Also tennis is good, not a full game you can just pratice against a wall.

I would recommend a real bike over the gym stationary ones. Much more of a cardio workout since you can't run. The scenery is nicer, too. :P

I will admit that I only read the beginning and end of this thread, so I am sorry if I am just running my mouth.

This is so hard, because have you ever noticed how everyone contradicts each other.

I have heard resistance training is better at burning fat than cardio, although both are necessary.

Some people skip meals and eat two a day, others say six small ones....

Are you really any smarter now than before?? I just think its funny....Different strokes for different folks, you just have to see how your body responds best.

Annnd then there'* proven science.

Ever heard of rabbit poisoning? If you're in a situation where you have to eat only rabbit (such as a survival situation), after about a month, you will die. Why? Protien poisoning. You have to have a fat intake to metabolize the protien.

In loosing weight, about the only correct way to do it is to eat 3 square meals (remember the food pyramid we all learned in kindergarten?), excersize first of all with light weights, high reps to prep the muscles correctly along with cardio workouts (again, freestyle is the best), then, if you want to build mass, go with heavy weights, low reps.

Light weights, high reps will tone and strengthen; heavy weights, low reps will only build mass, thus add weight.

I had a friend that wanted to lose weight, so he started working out with us. I tried to convince him that what he needed to do was lift with light weights with 15-20 reps for at least two weeks to a month first, but he thought that was being a pansy and went straight to heavy weights, low reps like we were doing at that point. (We, of course, had already toned and strengthened with light weights, which actually prepare the muscle for mass building.)

Eventually, he became discouraged because he was too focused on that scale rather than how he actually looked, and quit. The result? He gained all that weight again, this time on all the mass he had built into his muscles, being much larger than ever.

If he would have just taken my advice, and did the toning/cardio first, he would have seen substantial weight loss while gaining actual strength. Then, afterwards, if he wanted to add muscle mass, he would have not only been healthy enough inside and out to do it, but would have looked cut and buff, due to the low bodyfat percentage.

You can gain strength and tone the muscle without putting on mass, thus more weight.

I hope this helps give the big picture of things.
