Just like the first person said.. It sounds perfect.. Though you might want to switch that second jog to after dinner. The reason is because you aren't active in your sleep neither do you eat. You metabolism slows way down in sleep. This is why breakfast is important. To light the fires on your metabolism again. And since your going to run in the morning to. It makes it even better. Theres more to weight loss then just making sure you excercise. Timing has a lot to do with it. Excercising at night will help you sleep better anyway. lol Your active during the day and lunch keeps your metabolism going. So if you are tempted to excercise after lunch then do a moderate workout. Like some sit ups for a few minutes. Make sure you do morning and night run and you will lose tons of weight. Wish you best of luck!

I'm not a guy, but I have male varsity track athlete friends who have tried getting muscles/more buff. You should increase your workout time to about 3-4 hours, 3 days per week. You should also start running a few miles. On the 4 days that you aren't working out for 3-4 hours, you should work out for 1-2 hours as a sort of rest day, but not totally. On occasion (once every few weeks), you can take 3 days straight off. As for your diet, eat 3-6 pancakes for breakfast with lots of fruit. Try to eat unprocessed foods (so no canned foods!) and take out the oreos. Stick to hot dishes like soups, rice, lean meat, etc., but make sure you eat at least one salad per day (with little to no dressing!). Be careful though, if you only eat the hot foods and don't work out enough, you'll end up just gaining fat, not muscle. Also, before and during every workout, drink water to keep from getting dehydrated, and after your work out, drink a glass of chocolate milk.

I've tried many diets and couldn't make anything work. Since having my first child, I've been carrying around an extra 30 pounds. This diet just made sense and showed me that everything I was doing before was wrong and a waste of my time. The plan was so refreshing and so simple to follow. I did everything plan said and lost 23 pounds in the first three weeks. I'm now starting the diet again to lose 7 more pounds. This plan has changed my life. Get started today!

If it's working for you tan yes, it is a good weight loss plan. Howver you have to watch you caloric intake and make sure you are getting enough calories so your metabolism doesn't shut down.

Sounds perfect... just make sure your taking a multi-vitamin, maybe along with some fish oil. Fish oil can really help speed up your metabolism. And make sure you're drinking plenty of water! Every week try to improve on your run... either by distance or running for longer. Good job - good luck!

It sounds like an excellent plan! One thing I am concerned about is that if your meal plans before starting this diet was significantly different than what you plan to do, it might take time for your body to adjust before you settle into the routine. You might feel listless and light headed, for instance, and it might get in the way of getting your full workout. Open your mind to treating yourself to a protein/energy bar before your workout. These bars are fairly nutrient dense, so don't go overboard :)
