Help for friend
Hey guys can one of you help me out with this, I have a friend who is 5'9 and 250 pounds. He is fat basically and he needs to lose his stomach and get more toned, that is his goal.
Can someone help me out and write down a workout plan and diet plan so I can show him to help him out. Any help is appreciated thanks. I just don't know for his body and weight how he should go by it exactly. And for those that are just gonna post tell him to do cardio and eat a lot of protein just please don't post at all thanks. Just people that can actually write a workout and diet SCHEDULE. Again, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hey, April fools is over!
I'd love to sit here and write out an entire workout and diet for free, but I have a life. I sense others do as well.
Really, I'd have him take some initiative and either come here to our diet board, or read-up somehow and put together a plan of attack. Perhaps he could use you as a resource as well? I'm just thinking realistically. Also, many could have given tid-bits of advice, but when you start setting boundaries as to what responses YOU want, that's a total turn-off of communication. I am more than happy to help out here, as is evident by the posts in this forum alone, but not when I am given a set of guidelines to conform to when doing something for FREE.
Honestly though, I don't think you are going to get somebody to construct and entire dietary protocol for free here for your friend. If someone does though, that's great, I just don't see it happening.
If I was really fat, I know I'd take initiative and get the ball rolling myself.

Exactly,, he’s got to take it in to his own hands, why should I or any one ells right a hole diet and training program, with the thought that he may not Evan do it or say, *u*k this, after a week or so, theirs so much to go over and get in to, its not that easy. check out the cutting sticky do some reading look in to low crbs, maintaining muscle while dieting, ect ect.

well, get this "friend" of yours on the site and have him read up on the educational forums. there are cutting diets planned out. as far as a workout schedule.... there have been countless threads covering workout plans and it all comes down to this.
if the guy can't take the time to research for an hour on this forum alone and come up with something that is obviously better than what he has been doing, then he doesn't have the desire to make a change in his life.

sorry for being crass, but you have to understand... setting up diet and training plans for people that need help is what experts like swole cat do for a living. just do a search on his threads alone and you will find out a lot of great info. just don't come on here and ask people to work for free. all the guys on here are more than willing to help out those that want to help themselves.... but they have to want it enough change their lifestyle.

And ya you guys are right for the most part, if he doesn't wanna put time into this forum and read up a little he is not dedicated enough. I'm thinking if I help him a little with this it will be something to help him get a start and he will start getting into it later.

check out the sticky's in the diet forum... as far as the "don't say do more cardio" request. cardio plays a big part of it.
i have yet to meet many fat people that run at least 15 miles a week. i cut my running down from over 20 miles a week when i am trying to gain weight. i have to run because of my job so i don't really have the option of not doing cardio, nor would i want to.

Okay here it is simplified. 1. Eat a balanced diet consisiting of ratio's 45/35/20ie (carbs/protein/fat). Drop the junk food except a cheat day here and there. Watch the total calorie intake and keep it below 3500kcals which = 1lb. 2. cardio 3-5 days a week empty stomach exception being water and iso-pure zero carb. THR 220-agex .65 for < 1hr. 3. weight train with moderate weights in the 10-15 rep range. It is not going to happen in a blink of a eye. P.S. Can someone write me up a buisness plan because I am changing careers in the near future? Oh yea, I forgot it does not need to be detailed its only my life here.

I just lost over 80lbs on the "you are what you eat" diet plan. It works around only eating fresh home cooked foods and fruit and veg. The only fats you eat are EFAs and the only sugar is minimal natural sugar i.e one teaspoon of organic honey on oatmeal in the morning. I reccomend you buy the book its good, its written by a Dr Gillian Mkeith. She is very populat here in UK because of her no nonsense approach. I also do 40mins cardio per day (i find cross trainer is great for burning calories with minimal impact) and lift everyday (one bodypart perday). When I first started on weightloss i trained in circuit fashion five days per week i.e all bodyparts everyday.
