    Only light cardio if there is such a thing due to my occupation I walk on ave maybe 5-6 miles a day and strapping down 11 cars a load twice a day would this factor into it?

    Milky, if it helps - I lift 4x per week and do 2 fairly intensive cardio sessions. I'm on my feet at work walking but don't classify that as active as I'd probably move about just as much at home. Anyway, with that activity level I can use a multiplier of 1.5 to get what my actual maintenance seems to be.
    NO SOURCES GIVEN

    It takes approx 7500cals to burn 1kg of fat, so if u drop 500cals a day (food wise) and burn 500cals a day in cardio, u will drop roughly 1kg of weight a week!

    Ok so I've recalculated using 1.375 and the new figure is 2685 that sounds better

    Absolutely man, like I said, lose 1kg a week what's that 2.2lbs! If u lose weight weight, your abs will be more visible, they come hand in hand! You can do it mate
