Lossing 17 Pounds Nutirtion

Alright so over the last few months Ive been watching what I eat and also just working on getting into better shape. I'm really looking to shed some fat before summer comes around so starting now will be the perfect time.

The hardest thing for me is to know what to eat.. I am 6' and 177 Pounds. I am also 15. For me knowing exactly what to eat would benefit me so much and I know someone on this forum knows exactly what I should eat to loose this weight.

My plan is to first loose this fat and then start working on gaining more muscle.

So anyone have any suggestions on what I should eat?

Whey protein helps you maximize

If you are going to lose weight exercise will be an important part of the process. Whey protein helps you maximize the weight loss benefits of exercise. Research has shown that whey protein helps you gain lean muscle mass when you work out and this muscle increases your body's ability to burn fat.

Based on scientific research and the experience of many successful losers of body fat, a natural whey protein shake might be a great-tasting addition to your list of foods that will help you lose those extra 10 pounds.

im in a similar position to you,slightly smaller but still close (5ft10, 172lbs).

im looking to be able to fight towards autumn this year at 155lbs, so im looking to lose around 12 lbs, so then i onyl have to cut 5lbs int he run up to fights.
it sounds boring and cliche, but it really is a case of eating less fast food and chocolate/sweets/crisps ect, an eating more vegatables an fruit ect.
altho having sed that,i already ate a fair amount of veg an fruit, but simply cutting down on choc an sweets an fast food has helped me lose a bit of weight.

u dont have to completly stop eating the things u like just dont binge too often. i try to stick to not eating any choc/pastry/crisp/sweet/mac ds takeaways ect in the week.this then allows me to eat pizza or wotever i want (within reason of course)on saturdays an fairly loose diet on sundays. if u dont giv urself chance to enjoy food, u wont stick to the diet for long.gettin a decent and nice tastin protein shake will help wen u get a craving for sumthin sweet (i liek sci-mx diet shake, chocolate cream flavour), an also has all the vitamins and protein u need for recouperating after workouts.

hope this helps a bit!

oh yeah forgot to mention before, sumthin u mite not realise.
you need to bear in mind that if you are planning to put on muscle mass,that muscle actually weighs more than the same amount of fat.this means that wen u weigh yourself after a few weeks of intense muscle workouts,u mite find that u will hav lost body fat, but not lost weight overall.

erm, without tryin to sounding like im tryin to put the last poster down, but sit ups wont do anything to burn fat.yes theyl help sculpt your abs initially, after a few weeks of training, the sit up/crunch will actually do very little to work ur abs or burn fat.

I have 2 easy to follow rules for you.
1. Do a "fat burn" exercise every single day
2. Dont eat any high fructose corn syrup

A fat burn workout - try to add into your workouts about 12-15 mins EVERY day of an exercise that keeps your heart rate at 128-133 the entire time. start counting as soon as you reach this heart rate. That doesnt mean do the same work out every day and some people will argue, but it has definitely worked for me(on top of my mma/intense cardio) I usually use an upright bike, treadmill at high incline, or if you have a heart rate monitor some light duty jogging

And also for foods just try to eat lots of fruits and veggies on top of any protein sources. Also try to eat carbs with 2g of fiber or more per 90 calories(the 2-90 rule). These foods fill you up well and you wont have room for much else
