I would recommend attempting this slowly or you will lose muscle. I would also recommend you try to lose the first few pounds (which is mostly water weight) without much cardio at all…if any. I would then add cardio in incrementally after that. By two months in, I would increase cardio to at least 5 times a week or more. I would keep protein intake at least around 1gr per pound of body weight and use the weights you are lifting as a guide to how much muscle you may be losing. If your strength is decreasing, expect that to mean muscle is being lost. The rest is a game of playing with numbers and strategies until you find what works best for you. Ignore those who make this overly complicated. Understand that your body is an adaptive machine that will eventually decrease results given the same stimulus.[/quote]
True, I guess I’ll have to take it slow. Start up a nice diet for a few weeks, then add in the cardio slowly. I still keep my intake to around 200-225g’s a day (depending on what I eat). Thanks for the fast response.
