With this post i wil make a 'simple' start on how to begin when you want to lose weight and lower the bodyfat. Since this question keeps repeating itself. I will focus on the diet. Diet is always key. Be ready to do alot of calculating....

Keep in mind we want to loose our fat not our dear muscle mass!

The start: calculate what your daily need of calories is. There are several ways to do this. Google this and DO IT. Without it all the rest will be guessing!

2: Now that we know how many calories we have to consume, we can look at our diet. Write down what you would eat on a regular day. Dont forget to include the drinks and snacks.

3: Calculate how many calories the regular day of eating is. Also list how many grams of protein, carbs and fat we consume.

4: We know now what we are doing wrong or good. Time to make it 'perfect'. Most likely you are wating too many carbs and too many fat and consuming too many calories. A other problem that can accur, you are eating way too less calories. Starving is never good ;).

5: In this step we are creating a diet with a deflict of 20% of our daily need. This will give us a healthy but steady weigtloss. What we are going to eat will be preferably consist of 40% proteins 40% carbs and 20% fat. You can switch this up a little but this should be the aim. These are the macro's you are eating. The grams will be different for everyone, the % stay the same.

6: This part will be alot of calculating again. Select what will come in your diet. This is the part that will be different for everyone and where my help kind of stops. Try to aim for foods you like and are healthy. If you dont like healthy food, bad luck start liking it.

Try to see what has to be replaced from your old diet. And even if it fits your macro's try to stay away from unhealthy food as much as possible. Its not that hard to find the food thats good and gives you high value proteins and/or carbs. Just measure out how much you need so it will fit your schedule.

Make a realistich schedule!!!!! Only put the food in that you are able to eat. Otherwise your diet will be nothing more than a piece of paper.

7: Workout. A combo of weight training and intense cardio would be the best way. The weight training will build muscle which highers the calories you burn during the day and it makes you look better. The cardio burns the fat and will improve your condition. Always important is to train hard and train smart.

This is a basic guideline about what steps you have to take when you want to lower your bodyfat!!!! Losing weight is not the goal, losing that fat is the goal. Specially ladies have a hard time coping with this :-).

Questions, flaming and all add ons and corrections can be put below.

That's pretty much the formula it took for me to lose it!  What I find is that many folks just want a quick fix, but it takes work & educated effort.  It takes discipline, but I have found that eating healthy foods and vigorous exercise now both energizes me and is enjoyable (more so than eating junk and being lazy).  Sorry for the "infomercial - like" response.  It really is not complicated, it just takes some effort!

Yes. Discipline is key. Hard work pays off

This is all fine and dandy - good information, yes - but I cannot take anyone seriously who means to say LOSE but writes LOOSE when saying, "Lose Weight". 

Sorry, I am a Grammar Snob - LOL!

I wasn't referring to you when I commented on that lol, i guess that kinda came out like i was.. oops lol I was just talking about people who have poor grammar in general. You speak very nicely.. Guess it matches that bod haha

Hehe doesn't matter. Just a bit silly to comment on a mistake i made in the title (hate making those obvious ones) while i think this is one of the few topics here with worthwhile information on a question that many ppl like to see answered.

But you can understand them anyway, it is not necessary to talk like the King of England to explain anything. English is not my mother language and it is quite annoying when some people correct you everytime that you open your mouth
