Question: I'm 21 years old and I've been working out for a while but my routine really isn't working for me.I currently weigh about 220 and i'm looking to get down to about 180lbs by April and i'm 5'10. I want to get muscle but i don't want to get huge i want lean muscle. I pretty much know what kind of diet I need i just want to know a good workout routine that includes weights and cardio.

It would be reasonable to even lose that in two months. I am going for 10 to 15 pounds a month. You should not eat more than 1500 calories and exercise once a day - twice if you want to see better results. I have lost weight more than once - my own fault because after i lose it (and i'm talking like 80 pounds), I get lazy and then gain it back slowly. Eventually I end up back where I started and have to go through it again. I have dropped 10-15 pounds each month just from walking 3 -4 miles a day and cutting down what I am eating to around 1500 calories. You can do the same. This time though I'm trying something that i hope will get me in better shape than just losing weight, and something that will keep me interested and have fun - zumba, pilates, and some weight lifting. Right now I am focusing on Zumba. Once I get into better shape, I will probably move onto something like Power 90. I cut out all sweets and pop from my diet and now drink water or low cal fruit juice when thirsty and try to keep all my sweet cravings satisfied with fruit. I eat more veggies and try to stick to 2 servings of chicken a day - that's it. I've already started losing. You can do it that way too and it shouldn't take you 5 months if you put the effort into it now. Good luck!

I found this on this website. There are more tips and info. 1. If what you are eating has less than 1 carb, count it as 1 carb just to be sure. 2. Totally avoid caffine at least for the first two weeks on the program. 3. Drink a MINIMUM of 8 glasses of plain water or seltzer daily. 4. Don't weigh yourself more than once a week 5. Take starting measurements as well as weight - sometimes you'll lose inches before pounds 6. Avoid any type of "low carb" sweetener for the first two weeks 7. Don't compare your loss to someone else's - this is a YMMV thing (your milage may vary) 8. Stalls are common around the third week so don't panic 9. If you follow your plan to the T and don't lose, consider Candida as a possibility and avoid vinegar, cheese, mushrooms and any other fermented food 10. Have bloodwork done before starting so you have a comparison 11. Cholesterol can be elevated in the first few weeks til your body adjusts - make sure your doctor knows that you're doing low carb and when you started 12. Don't blame the diet if you don't read your plan book -- blame the diet if you don't read the labels -- Don't blame the diet if you don't follow the diet

Little Tricks To Help You Lose Weight Fast Yeah we all know that we are supposed to cut calories, do cardio and hit the gym to get in shape, but there are lots of little tricks you shouldn't ignore if you want to slim down quick. Take The Stairs Taking the stairs instead of the elevator every day can help you burn some extra calories. It may not seem like a lot but it adds up. Over a period of a year, taking the stairs can burn off an extra five lbs. of fat.

Gearalt Originally Answered: Question About Muscle Milk Light should you avoid adding stuff to the shake if you're using as a meal shake?
First, I want to congratulate you on realizing what most people look over; that Muscle Milk is not designed to be used as a protein powder like ON 100% Whey. It is designed to be used as a meal replacement or part of a meal replacement. It has more than Whey protein; it has Caseins, slower releasing proteins, etc, etc, etc. Because of this design Muscle Milk is higher fat and calorie content... You wouldn't want the extra if you were using it as just a protein powder, but being as it is designed the extra cals and fat is right on target. Often I hear people talk about Muscle Milk because of the extra fat not being for cutting, or losing weight. It is not so. If you use Muscle Milk as a meal replacement you will ordinarily lose weight/fat content/cut. I recommend replacing breakfast and lunch with muscle milk and eating a reasonable healthy dinner. Either Muscle Milk or Muscle Milk Light really would work. Try MML first. Don't forget to have your cheat days. And YES! You can add things. Because of the extra fat and cal content watch the fat in things you add. If you use MML you can afford some extra calories (don’t confuse with extra fat). Think Strawberries, Bananas and things along that line. Muscle Milk can also be used to gain weight/Bulk. I would recommend to bulk drinking the two shakes as mentioned above in addition to your regular reasonable meals. You could even try interswitching MM and MML. MML for the cut and MM for the bulk in the fashion listed above. HOWEVER, your goal is a swimmer build. You might not need to a bulk phase. Professional swimmers often do not need to do a bulk phase because swimming is not only an awesome cardio but a full body workout. I'm going to guess you are not a professional swimmer, completive swimmer etc rather just want the look. And who could blame you? :) That being the case, you might still not need a bulk phase because if you are hitting the gym, lower weight, higher reps, (I would recommend minimum of 3-4 times a week.) and doing your cardio, and now adding the muscle milk light, you very well could gather the same means, the same end result, as a completive swimmer. So try the MML for a bit, gym, lower weight, higher rep, 3-4 times a week and see if you see it take form. If not, try some alterations, try same as above but try regular Muscle Milk or try adding more cals to your MML. People seem to forget you need some extra cals to build muscle. You could then actually try a cut and bulk phase as mentioned above. Don’t forget small healthy snack in-between the meals as well. Nice fruit, soy nuts, stuff along the line. You should never be hungry. Remember what works for you might not work for the next. Take this info, research other info, and start to toy with a combination that works for you constantly tweaking until your goal unlocks. Go For It!
