How much are you trying to lose?

First, go to the ed threads and use TObeys posts on caloric intake. Figure out your caloric needs and there is your starting point. THe gaol is the intake of clean foods. Eliminate the fried foods, junk foods. Yea, it takes more time to prep it yourself but thats part of the job. As to how much you will loose depends on you. How much cardio and working out you do, how you follow your diet, etc. I lost 85 lbs in 7 months and have put on 19 lbs of lean muscle in 4 months. It can be done but it takes a lot of dedication bro.

I see in your profile you are 19, weigh 220 and are 5'8". Is that right? Do you know what your bodyfat percentage is? Your goals seem ambiguous. Could you provide more info please.

2)Your body fat % ( If you do not have a calipar, you local gym should be able toi help you figure it out as this is useually a service offered to for the gym memebers)
3)Your goals- Not just I want to lose weight, but how much.
4) Your present training program- weights AND cardio. If you do not have one post that, the guy's will help you develope one.

These are just a few. Any past training expereince that you may have will be helpful as well. Post this and I'm sure that the response you get will get you started on the right track.
