    Ok i have a big build and i am currently 5'10" 225 - 230 pounds. My graduation is coming up and i am having a huge party and i want to have my old athletic body back. I know im starting late but college and beer killed me.

    How can i lose some weight fast? Any tips (No ATkins diets i am trying to keep the weight off)

    I currently go to the gym almost everyday but i only do the ellipitcal machine for 45mins or spin class for 60min. No weights cause i hate them but i know i need them.

    My diet is ok, i am hooked on white rice but have been cutting that down big time.

    So is there any supplements to help? Any weights i should be doing? Foods i need to cut out like pasta, rice, stuffed salmon etc...? Any routines i should follow?

    I know its probably an answer of eat less calories and work out more but i just dont seem to be losing weight like i should.

    thanks

    If you eat clean, cut calories, and work out properly... but you find that doesn't work for you and you are still 5'10'' at 220+lbs then I would learn to live with it because it sounds like a genetic problem... However, I highly doubt this is the case. You say you have cut calories and that you work out. Well if you don't do any weight training then this will be a hard goal to accomplish so what are you doing in terms of lifting ATM? Also, can you post an example day of your diet? Overall, more detail is necessary in order to answer any of your questions.

    Maybe you could benefit from a good cleansing diet to reset some of your internals. I've done the Burroughs "Lemonade Diet" before - basically a 10 day fast - with good success. You can google it and see if it may be right for you. Also, training wise, you may want to consider HIIT - high intensity interval training. It's hard as hell but quick and effective.

    wtf... a 10 day fast? Forget that trash... just worry about getting your diet in check... and train properly. If you don't know how to train properly, read the FAQ in the S&P forum.

    cut empty carbs (beer, white bread, rice, etc)
    lift high intensity then run for like 30 minutes afterwards.
    if you are hungry eat veggies and fruit.
    there is no limit to how much veggies and fruit you are allowed to eat.

    If you're doing an hour of cardio almost every day, I don't see how you could possibly weigh so much. Your diet must need some serious work. Give us an idea of what you generally eat, how much, and when during the day.

    Weights will help, but unlike some people here I will tell you they're not absolutely necessary. Still, if you want to look "athletic" it's pretty hard to do so without ever lifting weights. Doing some weights before or after your cardio (I prefer after), even for just 20 to 30 minutes, will help the fat burn off much more easily.

    That said, you need to cut back on beer for sure, it's a killer. Limit your drinking to 1 or 2 nights a week, stick with light beer, and don't go overboard.

    Eat whatever you want, whenever you want. Just tell yourself mentally "I will not get fat." :D Light dinners are a great way to cut back. Have a good sized lunch and a snack in between. If you can handle it, have a protein shake for dinner every other night. Let that be your dinner and on the next night low fat popcorn and veggies. Popcorn helps me feel full quicker than other foods.

    The fact you asked about suppliments before giving your training 100% efforts leads me to believe you want an easy way out.

    I'm a huge advocate of the all or nothing approach. Given the time period you are working with, I think it WOULD be appropriate for you to abstain from ALL unhealthy foods and lifestyle habits.

    Gradual changes yield gradual results, and no suppliment in the world is going to change that.
