Your workout is fine if ths is what your doing everyday for six days... I'm not familiar with the caveman diet but I knw the sugar in fruit is irrevalent as long as your in a caloric deficit U will lose weight tho fruit and meat diet is not what I would consider healthy ..tho two weeks isn't really a long time now if ud been doing ths 5-6 weeks and have seen absolutely no changes thn Id say ok something needs to change...but really just be patient it just takes time

You should probably do more cardio. Also what kind of meals are you consuming?

23 Jan
Actually, I'd entirely disagree with this. A half hour is ideal as it is long enough to get the burn but short enough for you to actually be putting in maximum efforts. Any more than that is usually not that beneficial unless you have a significant amount of weight to lose. However you should absolutely be weight training. Look into barbell cardio complexes. They're awesome for both burning fat and gaining muscle.

I also heard that 30 minutes was enough, as long as you're getting your heart rate up. I just thought I would push myself . So I can get in the habit of working out!

With this workout you'll be building muscle, so it might take a little bit before you see results.

That's what I came to realize I was looking at my stomach today I saw that is a lot musclar then what I was going for so I'm going to have to switch it up to something different I'm not sure what tho.

Beware of the sugar in fruit. Get a food diary app and keep  a daily report on everything you eat.

It takes about 6 weeks for you to notice a difference. try switching up your workout because eventually you're probably going to get bored of it. And also you're also going to miss out on training other muscles.  and you really don't need to be following a strict diet like that so long as you're eating healthy and as previously mentioned, in a caloric deficit. Also. You may want to instead do 20 minutes of interval training as opposed to just running (it's a calorie scorcher and will increase your speed) however you absolutely do not need to be doing more than a half hour of cardio so long as your really breaking a sweat and getting your heart rate up. You should actually be more weight training. I really see fitness as something that should be incorporated into your lifestyle instead of looking like a regime. Ultimately I found that when I took to a certain plan like that I just ended up sort of miserable. But whatever works for you. Best if luck!

Not sure when interval training .but I'm definitely going to look into it. thank you so much for your help and I looked at your photos and I'm definitely trying to get my stomach to look like yours. I've actually already started getting bored with my workout so I don a 20 minute run today with my inclined 1.7 that definitely boosted my heart rate and made me break a sweat. I've been looking into different types of diets I was thinking about switching to the Atkins diet but it seems kind of complicated.

Do not do the Atkins diet. Cutting out one food group is not good for you by any stretch and limiting your nutrients will only put you in a worse place. Carbs are essential for your energy and btw are also in a whole bunch of healthy foods you may not realize - peas, squash, cabbage. While you may lose weight quickly on it, it's not a practical long term solution. Instead just try to stick to eating whole and clean foods. Eat reasonable portions, get all your food groups in in moderation, and when you crave sweets as I...
