Before addressing your workout regimen, I will talk about your diet. You must take your diet seriously or you'll be wasting your time at the gym. Your calorie intake needs to be controlled.
Cooking your own food is encouraged because it allows you to control what goes in it and the quantity; however, it's not a requirement.
Whether you cook your meal or purchase pre-made, you want to ensure the following:
Protein should be a core part of your meal.
Fiber should be a core part of your meal; your veggies should be close to raw as much as possible (so, no over-boiling or over-cooking).
Endeavor to make your snacks fruits or vegetables; it fills you up while reducing your calorie intake.
Drink lots of water.
Reduce your sodium (salt) intake.
Reduce your fats intake.
Reduce your carbs intake (unless needed on high-energy exercise days).
Many people have lost weight by controlling their diet and just minimal exercises.
That being said, endeavor to be physically active. The more active you are, the less gym time you'll need to lose weight.
Your current regimen is too light (it's okay as a beginner); you need to start ramping it up.
While I'll personally go a different route, here's what you can do to your current regimen:
- Gradually increase your treadmill to about 20-30 minutes.
- Gradually increase the cycling to burn about 200-300 calories.
- Replace the elliptical with skipping . Jumping exercises allow you to burn more calories in a shorter timeframe
- Endeavor to do this at least 3 days a week.
- Endeavor to add weightlifting to your regimen; it'll help your short-term and long-term weightloss goals.
Above all, persevere and continue challenging yourself. Oh, you need to be patient too; otherwise, you might give up fast because the weight isn't dropping as fast as possible. As long as you keep working at it, you'll see results.
Have fun at the gym, buddy :)
