I am 20 yrs old, 173.5 lbs, (I haven't measured height but i think I'm around 5"7-5"8) and since around the middle of June I have been trying to do Elliptical machine for 30 min (100 SPM, 5-7 mets) every day.
I'm trying to keep doing Elliptical everyday, and every other day I try to do a full body workout (mostly upper body), bench press, flies, shoulder press, biceps, triceps, lat, rowing, and occasionally forearms.
I was wondering if this sort of routine would lead to good weight loss. I hate running and treadmill so this is why I picked the elliptical machine.
As for diet, I've been trying to take in less calories (I've had this sort of beer belly since I was say 14-15 yrs old [prolly cuz of sedentary lifestyle]).
My diet is usually:::
Morning: fatfree creamcheese minibagel.
Lunch: Subway 6" 'oven roasted chicken breast' (light mayo, mustard, american cheese)
Dinner: Genoa Salami/meatball sandwich usually, unless I go out or cook dinner (rice/vegetables/etc).
I only take Whey Protein Gold Standard 24g one scoop on the workout days.
My progress so far has been:
End of May 2009 --- 178 lb
June 10th 2009 --- 176 lb
June 18th 2009 --- 175 lb
June 21st 2009 --- 174 lb
June 28th 2009 --- 173.5 lb
How am I doing? (I was a little slacking around early June though, so that's why it's low weight loss at the start).
