Question about diet/workout
I sent this to dav for some info and dav i really appreciate the reply. Just wanted some input from the rest of you.
I'm 22, 6foot 180lbs. My BMI is right where it should be. I don't know my body fat % though. I have an athletic type of build, broad shoulders but very lean. When i gain weight it seems to go to my stomach and love handle area. I've read up and been told that area mainly grows from poor diet and drinking. I don't drink that much but i do like to drink. I'll admit my diet sucks but i'm trying to work on it.
I wanted to first see if you could recommend anything for a good detox. I'm planning on cutting out soda's, fried food, and sugars from my diet and switching to drinking just water. I wanted to see if a detox would help get any extra crap out of my system for the transition. I've been told they a detox will basically just help clean out your system therefore making you feel better generally. Is this true? Or am I even headed in the right direction with this?
As getting back in some shape, my stomach area is where i'd really like to lose the fat. I've read many times that the stomach area is the hardest place to burn fat from, do you know if this is true? Do you know of any exercises to help cut fat in that area as well besides just doin sit-ups and crunches? Or is cardio in general going to be the best way to cut fat?
Also are there any fat burners out there that actually work and help burn fat. I've heard many things about fat burners... some work and some don't. Some may work but you'll get the shits and well that's no fun.
I'd like to lose 10-15lbs of fat, get leaner and then work on putting on 5-10 lbs of muscle. Even though they may work I don't believe in using anabolic steroids, i'd rather work my ass off for a year and be natural if that's what it'll take. Is there anything out there that's not so "hardcore" that I could take when I do start the bulking process?
