    30 Minutes of Cardio - every day!

    Hello Guys,

    Is 30 minutes of cardio everyday for 5 days a week good enough to lose weight fast?

    I'm 6'3" tall and a month ago when I started in the GYM I was in 235 pounds... now I'm at 225.

    So obviously the gym time isn't working.....

    DIET determines how much weight you lose. Tells us about that.... everything else is much less important.

    OK, I try to keep my calories intake in 1,900 calories or less.

    Breakfast - around 300 calories (oatmeal, whey shake and water)

    Snack - 90 calories (yogurt)

    Lunch - around 600 calries (usually a chicken breast with vegetables)

    Snack - 90 calories (yogurt)

    Dinner - around 300 to 450 (small meal like a sandwish)

    I get 4 scoops of the whey proteins shake durin the day. One scoop before workout, two scoops after workout and one scoop with dinner. There are like 480 calories

    I said I was 235 a month ago when I started in the gym and now I'm 225 (lost 10 pounds). I'm just asking if the cardio that I'm doing is good... or I'm I doing too much or not?... oh, and I'm doing weights too during the week.

    You had better edit your first post as it shows 235.... no weight loss.

    You've lost 10 pounds in a month. That is plenty...no need to speed up the weight loss.

    The bottom line with cardio is that it is one way to burn calories. Very roughly 30 minutes of strenuous cardio is worth 500 calories per day or about an extra pound of weight loss per week IF you maintain your current diet. Whether that is enough for you is your decision. More cardio, more weight loss.... Again, IF the diet remains constant.... Drink a gatorade after cardio and your extra weight loss is gone.....

    Many people decide cardio isn't worth the time and effort in regards to weight loss as controlling what you put in your mouth is much easier.

    Looks like you are on a good path though!

    I think what he meant is that 30 minutes of cardio burns about as much calories as a Gatorade, so drinking one after cardio would negate the effort.

    Most people have no clue as to how few of calories they burn doing cardio and most people have no idea how many calories a regular gatorade has.

    You see it in the gym all the time.... Someone putting in a half-assed cardio workout (barely breaking a sweat) and burning maybe 200 calories.... then feeling good about themselves they drink a gatorade that has over 200 calories in it. Net gain... ZERO!!! Then they can't understand why they aren't losing weight!

    If you are going to do 30 minutes of cardio... make sure you leave with a sweat drenched shirt...then make sure you don't give up the calories burned by drinking a bunch of calories afterwards!

    I think he is just advising you to not drink a gatorade immediately after your cardio. Don't have any sugars immediately after. It will cause an insulin spike and your body will stop the fat burning process.

    You don't need to eat that many times....Whatever works.

    And to the people complaining about a gatorade, it doesn't matter, overall calories is what matters. Drinking the calories at workout time is not what is going to make or break it. In fact I would get most of my calories before workout for energy and then a good bit for muscle repair after your workout.

    Thanks for the advise but I only drink water after my cardio... just water so I think I'm good there. The only thing I drink after the cardio and weights workout is a whey protein shake (two scoops)

    Not sure why you are asking this. You have a solid diet, your running 5 times a week, and lifting 4 days a week. You lost 10 lbs last month... and during the holidays i'm assuming. Thats a good month. Just keep up what your doing cause its working.

    SO if he lifted weights and then hit his cardio you're saying he shouldnt put the glucose back into his body? What am I missing here arent we supposed to put the sugar back into us after a workout...?

    You need to do at least 2-3 hours of cardio 7 days a week to see results.

    1 hour needs to be on an empty stomach in the morning, 1 hour needs to be pre workout, 1 hour needs to be post workout.

    If you want to add in some extra cardio, you can do 1 hour before bed.

    This will have you ripped faster than dat dere CellTech.

    yea your doing great. Thats about 2 lbs a week which is about the maximum amount you want to lose in a week. Your diet looks pretty good. Keep up the weight lifting and running with that diet and you should continue to lose weight fast.

    Actually, he brings up a good point in a round-a-bout way, regarding an increase in activity throughout the day.

    30 minutes of cardio every day - not particularly effective in terms of having a large impact on fat loss. It'll make you feel good, and is a great way to reduce stress, but will do almost zip as far as losing fat goes.

    People get so focused on their workouts that they completely overlook the *other* 15 waking hours of the day, which they spend either sitting at a desk at school/work or on a couch at home or in a car while commuting.

    10-15 hours of general non-exercise activity every day will trump 30 minutes or 3 hours of cardio.

    Of course, diet trumps it all. The less you move, the less you get to eat.

    honestly..if you have 20-30 min and thats it..I'd do a lot of HIIT cardio.

    IF you don't care about muscle loss go ahead and do hours of cardio. But if you want to maintain strength and as much muscle as possible, lift heavy at least 3 days a week and then do cardio after and on days you don't lift. Give yourself 2 days rest. If you do it right you can lose a lot of fat and keep some lean muscle.

    In some cases like mine, I've never had a lot of fat, so I've gained weight while decreasing waste size and looking better in the mirror. clothes and a mirror are usually your best gauge for success of a program and diet. not the scale.
