    The book is about building muscle and stripping away fat so you can see your abs, instead of doing a million situps and still eating like a pig, which is most americans' idea of abwork. It also places emphasis on core strength, which is essential.

    There are good recipes in the book, but nothing that will blow you away if you have basic nutrition knowledge and some experience in the kitchen. If you're a dummy on both subjects, though, it's really good.

    Is it better to loose the excess weight now then start weight training? Or does it matter?
    Thanks
    Blaaaaargh! LOL. Muscle doesn't turn into fat. I hope that was just a figure of speech.

    It is NEVER too soon to start lifting. It's well-documented that lifting weights burn more calories than cardio. That because the increase in muscle mass, the spike in metabolism and the muscles repairing themselves will burn calories throughout the day, while calories stope burning from cardio as soon as you stop running and catch your breath.

    If you get your exercise and nutrition programs dialed in, you can definitely lose that gut in way less than a year.

    Bluntforce-

    Gotta agree with soleil here. "Diets" in the colloquial sense, don't work. You've got to develop a nutrition plan that you can live with for the REST OF YOUR LIFE. Yeah, you can eat nothing but salads, or go low-carb for 3 months, but you're eventually gonna get sick of that at go back to your old ways.

    And despite what a lot of people say, not only are carbs good for you, they're essential to performance and brain function. You've just got to pick good carbs.

    And don't shy away from fats either. Like carbs, your body needs fats to function. Again, there are good and bad fats.

    I eat 5-6 meals a day, and have a high-protein snack right before bed. This keeps me from feeling hungry and keeps my metabolism revved all day.

    I eat healthy 6 days a week, and have one cheat day a week (usually Sunday when everyone comes over for a BBQ) where I eat anything I want. This is a good way to keep me from falling off the wagon completely.

    Exercise is essential. If you're going to be a cop, your physical conditioning may be the difference in you going home safe at night or not. Pray it doesn't happen to you, but if it does, be ready to get the job done. That means lift weights to get strong, and do lots of cardio to keep fit and your heart strong.

    1 extra pound of muscle burns 3,000 calories a month just by resting. 1 pound of fat contains 3,500 calories. Do the math.

    Check "The Abs Diet" book that scooterlee recommended. It covers all this, with weight-lifting routines, eating schedules, cardio exercise tips and healthy recipes.

    Just by cutting out the man-made chemical-filled crap most of us eat every day without thinking you can lose pretty much all the weight you want.
    This is what I've been trying to do but man it is spendy $$$$, especially on a college student budget.

    The good news is that grocery stores seem to be carrying more of this stuff for the last few years, so it is easier to obtain.

    Well, if you go back to eating TONS of carbs, maybe. But i just watch my eating habits and keep working out after i stop the lowcarb.

    But yes, you CAN put it back on fast. I find it's like that with most "diets."

    I stay below 20g per day when i wanna lose, as a guy you can probably go up to 30g. And do cardio and drink plenty of water.
