Cardio training is just like anything else. You have to switch it up to keep the body guessing. Be it bike, treadmill, jog, walk, whatever. Vary intensity and durations.

Diet: 10 calories per pound. Maybe a little less in your case.

Lypoderm they have on this site or www.advantlabs .com

There are a ton of thermogenics out there that can help, as long as you are in good health. Just dont start poping them like candy, ease into using them.

Jogging burns more calories than biking, I know that for a fact. However, biking is better for your knee joints. When I am cutting I do jogging, biking, treadmill, swimming (rarely), and sometimes even cross country skiing. I like to do different stuff too.

I train some ROTC guys and some reserve officers.....I love to run, but most Airborne(former) guys do..

Had to really slow down because of my neck though....

Variety is the spice of life!!!

I would also look at your diet too. For me, I've found that diet is a big part of the battle. Thermogenics and to a certain extent cardio won't work will unless you have the diet dialed in!

Remember there is no wonder pill or magic bullet.

I agree with getting your diet straightened out before using supplements. For example, make sure you aren't eating any of the following:

* Refined Sugar (soda, suggary juice drinks, cakes, pastry, cookies, candy, etc...)
* Pizza
* Fast food burgers
* Any other fast/fried foods.
* Dairy Products (non-fat dairy is ok)

Focus on lean meat and fish, whole grain cerals, fresh vegetables and fruits... you get the idea. And don't forget to drink plenty of water.
