Quick question regarding Weight Issues

Hey guys, I'm kinda having a problem with my fitness routines right now, I hope u guys can help me out and give me some recommendations. Anyways, my current weight is 182 and I intend to keep it that way (maybe go down a bit to 175), but my problem is I wanted to reduce this damn fat that's covering my stomach. So is there any way to reduce ur body fat but at the same time adding more muscle to ur body (basically what I want is to make my stomach smaller and make my arms/shoulders bigger)? thanks for the help guys, have a great day

I went all fat-free and low-fat while working out....It added muscle mass and cut down on fat, but for you it could be different

Hey man, most guys have the same issues . . . unfortunatley when you gain weight, not all of it can be muscle, and when you lose weight not all of it can be fat.

However there are steps you can take to keep most of your gains muscle and most of your losses fat. Based on what you have described I would recommend starting with putting on some muscle.

I've recommended it before, but this books has really good nutrition advice, and the routine is pretty good also

Basically it's about nutrient timing, most of your meals should consist of protein and healthy fats. You want to add fast acting carbs (ie sugar, I use gatorade powder before and frozen OJ concentrate afterwards) immediatley before and after your workout, and two meals with slower acting carbs (ie yams, oats, or quiona) in the next few hours after your workout.

Oh and a big key is drinking lots of water, and nothing else, no Pop, fruit juice, anythign like that, the exception being your pre and post workout shakes.

To add to what Paul said, or to take it a little further, Cut Out the SUGAR! The whole fat free gig is good for some, but it's creating a whole generation of "muffin tops". You can't target fat loss, but cutting the sugars WILL trim the fat from your mid-section. Doing this and kicking up your workout should really help get you the V cut you're looking for.
I hope this makes sense.

Good luck,
Jenn

Increase your cardio in addition to whatever else you're doing.

Yep and not all fats are bad . . . testosterone is made from fats, so if you don't have enough, you won't make enough gains. Nuts, Olive Oil, and Fish oils are all good fats

And remember Fat is Anabolic and Sugar is fat-abolic

A couple general guidelines for bodybuilding (packing on lean mass, decreasing bf%)

- Carbs are not bad. Eat your carbs early in the day centered pre and post workout

- Dietary fats are not bad. Unprocessed fats such as nuts, uncooked oils, fish oil, flax oil should be consumed w/ protein and not carbs in your later meals

- Eat 6+ times a day to put your body in a constant anabolic state while keep ing your metabolism up

- Sugars are OK if they are naturally occuring (fructose), such as fruits.... Cherries and Apples actually have very low glycemic loads!

- Simple sugars are best consumed post workout. It will also work great for blood sugar / insulin sensitivity

- Get plenty of rest. 8-10hrs for recovery.

- Drink plenty of water. Carry a bottle of water w/ u 24/7

- Never miss a meal. Pack your meals in advance.

umm, i'll add more as I think of it... my brain is kinda fried right now
