Spot reduction does not work. You can firm up an areas muscles but you can't lose fat from one area.

very rough guess 300g carbs / 150g protein / 40g fat
would be a good place to start... just adjust accordingly.

flubby pecs? diet and exercise. just be patient, will decrease along with your weight.

I think he means he burns 200-300 calories a day by running.

Flyes, flyes, pec-deck, cable flyes, seal-hops while saying "ooORR, ooORR." That should tone up those boobies.

Just kidding. How much do you weigh and what is your average diet like? The amount of calories you burn each day and your typical caloric intake are crucial for figuring out how low to drop your calories. Boomer's suggestion adds up to 2160 calories, which may be a perfect suggestion, but it depends on these factors. His suggestion is well balanced and would no doubt be effective for most guys, but if you are 220 and just looking to tone up, you probably maintain your weight at over 3000 calories. Then you have to factor in your physical activity throughout the day.

Find out how many calories your body burns each day (not just exercise) and then figure out how fast you want to lose weight. Recommended weight loss is about 2-2.5 lbs per week. To lose 1 pound, you need to lose 3500 calories. A weekly deficit of 7000 calories would equal 2 pounds per week.

I use this website to figure out how much my body burns on average. NATS Version 2.0
This website was recommeded to me from my sport psychologist who is the sport psych for the US Olympic ski team, so I believe in it as a useful tool.

Just an example of what I'm talking about: Say you weigh 220, and your calculation comes to 4000 calories burned per day. To lose 5 lbs in 2 weeks (2.5 lbs per week), you need to be in a deficit of 8750 calories per week. That comes to 1250 per day. So, you'd need 2750 calories per day. Again, I'm merely speculating, so check out the site and let me know what it comes to. The site has you factor in the amount of time per day you spend doing whatever levels of physical activity, so you have to average it out. Of course everyone has a different metabolism, and people respond to dieting differently, so do what feels right for you. Just make sure you're eating less than you're burning. Stick to Boomer's balance regardless of the calories: c:55% p:25% f:20% (roughly)

Sorry this was so long.

Check out the 'Make me a diet plan' thread.

his diet/stats are there.

and we could continue the discussion there as it is about the same thing.

Lipo is the only way to target fat on a specific area.

Shoulder presses / incline press will also develop the pecs, around the top which is often otherwise neglected. It's also important to exercise your upper back / shoulders and the top of your stomach.

I'd say add straight arm pullover with dumbbell to your workout.
