It's mostly diet then, and proper post-workout nutrition.

Check this out if you want to go really hardcore:

From personal experience, P90X. If you do the work, you get the results. Here's a buddy of mine's blog...

Nov. 4th I weighed in @ 204 lbs.
This AM, I weighed in @ 180 lbs.

I greatly reduced calorie intake, drinking water and black coffee instead of soda, staying away from fat when possible, working out and taking Dexatrim Max has been responsible for the loss. I'm shooting for 175 by the Diego game....size 34 would be nice to see again as well.

Good job H!
Wish I could have done the same...although with clothes on at the doc today, it wasn't as much gained as I thought.

I started at 279 on February 38, 2008. As of Wednesday, December 10th, I weighed 190. I've lost 89 pounds and I only have 11 to go to reach 100 pounds lost.. and 60 to go to reach my final goal.

Wow, guys I'm so proud of all of you. Due to my Nephrotic Sydrome and Minimal Change disease, a bunch of **** went on with me and I went up to 212 pounds. I'm 175 or so right now -- and that's 37 pounds lost since December 15th or so. I have been doing over an hour to hour and a half of cardio a day and feel great as well. I'm seeing some good results as well. After I'm in complete remission, I can't wait to start something like P90X workout to end up getting in the best shape of my life and keeping it that way.

I'm so proud of all you! GREAT WORK!

Any suggestions for some supplements to help burn fat and stuff like that? Fish oils, etc.? What stuff should I be looking for.

I'd say that you should read up on proper diet and exercise, if you haven't already. A magazine that taught me a lot was Muscle & Fitness. It's a body building magazine that's geared towards the everyday guy. Iron Man and Flex are for the hard core bodybuilders, so I never really read those.

You need a sound diet before you think about supplements. My diet is very good, so I added a few supplements to help me out. After I workout I take some whey protein and creatine, and I take three table spoons of flaxseed oil a day. Most of the foods that I eat are very low in fat, so I get the bulk of my fat from flaxseed oil.

I'm getting good results. The only area that's giving me trouble is my lower abs, which gives a lot of guys problems. I'm going to keep at it and soon enough my six pack will be complete. My upper abs about coming along nicely, and my chest and arms are well defined.

As for P90X, it looks like a very sound program, and those informercials are one of the few that I actually believe. But $120 is a lot of money for a program that you can read about in magazines or online. That program looks very similar to the type of program that the actors in 300 were on. It's circuit training without much rest in between exercises. I know a lot about working out, so I personally wouldn't buy that program, but I will say that if you did buy it, it looks like you would get your moneys worth.

Here are my workout programs. Maybe something like this can work for you.

I've gone by two different systems when I lift weights.

1. 3 days a week, hit all body parts once a week

2. 4 days a week, only compound movements, upper body and lower body twice a week.

When I've done three days a week I'll do chest, shoulders, and triceps on Monday, quads, lower back, and hamstrings on Wednesday, and upper back (lats), biceps and abs on Friday.

When I've done four days a week I'll do chest, back, and shoulders for my upper body day, and quads, lower back, hamstrings and abs for my lower body day. Upper and lower body gets worked out twice a week. My triceps and biceps will get a lot of work from working my chest and back.

I prefer the four day a week program, which is what I am normally on.

I always run three times a week, and I don't run on days that I lift. I've done distance running, but I really don't like it. I mostly do sprints. When I do distance I usually go for about 45 minutes.

Fitday is really good in counting calories. After a while, you don't need t log in your meals as much as you already know the general range of where your meal is gonna be in.

I lost about 50% of my body fat in the past year and have kept it off with proper diet and boxing. Before this, I was running 2-4 miles 5 days a week and was still over weight.

The hardest thing for me to do now is to eat enough calories during the day without messing up my fat/carb/protein ratio. I figure with my training, I should be eating 2,500 calories a day.

If you guys want to try something different...Crossfit is where it's at. It's old fashioned movements involving pullups, box jumps, cleans etc. Check it out if you want..it will kick your ass and it's very addicting if you have a competitive streak in you. I just got started and i'm loving it
