Default Weight loss help - 06-03-2009, 06:30 AM

I'm 5'4" and 149 lbs. I want to lose 10-15 lbs in the next 3 months. My diet is good (no fast food, lots of water, etc.) But just for a guideline, about how many calories should I be getting per day to reach this goal?

Exercise is the main part I need help with. I can't get a gym membership right now, or buy any expensive equipment, so that's not an option. So basically I have running, basketball, biking, jump roping, and other stuff like that available. How much of each of those specific activates should I do to burn a good amount of fat each day?

Yeah, everybody says 45 mins a day, but I mean how many miles running/biking, how many jumps with a jumprope, etc. I want to get a specific number.

And like I said, I can't really afford to buy stuff like adjustable weights now, so what is a good weight of dumbells I can start off with.

if you are just starting i would jog 3 times a week its the best way to lose weight i personaly think i lost 1 stone in a month when i started boxing we do alot of running
but dont strain yourself you will have your limit it might be 1 mile per time but trust me if you stick to it youll be jogging 10 miles in no time
improves fitness loses weight
what more could you ask for
skipping is very good
i would say start off 10 mins ish ?? if you can =] just work your body as much as you can without straining yourself at all beacuse we dont want any injuries do we know i personally think street running is alot better than running on a treadmill aswell so if i was you i would be street running , uphill sprints
1 of the 1s we do at boxing is a hill sprint then at the top 10-20 pressups and back down repeated 6 times
its a workout in its self

Telling you an exact amount of laps or jumps isn't really good advice, the amount of calories one person burns compared to another while doing something varies.

45 minutes a day is a lot if your just starting out. But if your already pulling it off and not getting burnt out then by all means continue with that.
How many days a week are you getting this in?

If your low on money I would pass on the buying weights at this point. Do some body weight exercises (pushups,pullups,crunches,dips,lunges) and if your set on lifting stuff just grab objects that are nearby and work with them.

...Also 10-15 pounds in three months is a lot of fat to burn on just exercise alone, you should get a good diet laid out as well.

When I am training I like to start the first week by running five times a day for at least minutes. Then I decrease the day to 3 days a week for 45 minutes.

You should try to throw sprints in the mix.

Yeah I would say between 45 and 60 min/ day. You don't want to do too much more than that because you increase the risk of both injury and over exertion significantly.
