I concur. Spot reducing is not possible. Typically fat comes off the last place you put it on. So if it has been sitting there for awhile, it may take awhile to get it off. Be patient. I would concentrate on making your training sessions (w/weights) a bit more challenging. Take shorter breaks (60 seconds) and up your volume a bit. Perform 4 or more sets ...

Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do. They key is to listen to your body, build up gradually, and create a routine. If necessary, alternate between different forms of exercise. I am almost the same weight/build as you and can run 10k. But I would not do that on two consecutive days. Start easy, and don't get discouraged. It gets easier if you don't ...

To answer your question regarding gears, yes if you are planning on cycling on varying inclines and terrains then you will need gears. Also regarding tyres, for road cycling you are better with a smoother thinner tyre, do off-road cycling (like in the woods etc) you would need thicker tyres with deeper grooves. I'm not sure where you live, but in the UK ...

You have to sit on the actual seat and see for yourself Jitendra. A good rule of thumb is when you are seated on the bike that one of your legs is able to hang completely straight with no bend and hook into the pedal. Hope that helps, Mike

Please please don't let your weight put you off running, or any sport. I ran when I was around your weight (I started at 148kg but didn't take up running til I'd lost some) and lost weight doing it. This article shows me running a 10k race and as you can see I am not a stereotypical running size (if there is such a thing). ...

Cycling would indeed be a better option until you don't lose some extra useless load. Also, consider step aerobics which you can do at home. By the way, running with a proper form and skipping with skill aren't as traumatic as they would be if done improperly (this would require a very long answer, but in a few words, that is: running by landing on your ...

I wouldn't put too much emphasis on the heart rate zones and calorie numbers. The general rule of thumb for fat loss is the two extremes. Walking and sprinting. Joggingis the middle ground and it can get you in trouble if you do too much of it (eg. overproduction of cortisol, fat storing hormone). The daily walking you are doing sounds great for your goals. ...

It seems that you have two questions. If I understand your post correctly, your first question could be posed as follows: "Is it possible that my 2.79M walk burns the same amount of calories as my 40min cardio routine?" Answer: Not likely. The link that you provided in your question shows a workout routine that is much higher intensity than just walking. ...

It is never a good idea to be starving, especially before you train. So if you are hungry, you need to eat. Make sure you are not dehydrated either. Especially on a higher protein diet, your body will require more water. I find a piece of cheese and a handful of almonds with a tall glass of water an hour before I train provides me with the energy I need to ...

Fat loss is also a goal Learn to control your hunger. If you want to lose fat, you need to reduce your calorie intake. The reason you are distracted is because your body releases a hormone called ghrelin ahead of expected meal times. This is a unconsciously trained response, and as you alter your diet your body will release hormones at the right times ...

If you really are eating "no carbs", you'll be in ketosis. Although pretty grueling for the first 48-72 hours, your blood sugar will quickly level out and you'll have a much more balanced energy level throughout the day. You'll want to really avoid high glycemic index foods. That would include (basically) any carbohydrate that is not found in its natural ...
