    What do you think of this training regiment

    I'm currently 6'1" maybe 6'2", and weigh about 250-260. Would an exercise regiment of walking for 70 minutes at a heart rate of 130 bpm (give or take) 5 times a week combined with weight lifting maybe 4 times a week for 45 minutes to an hour. My goal is to lose weight (i'm fat and want the weight gone) while gaining muscle also/just getting in good shape in general. Will this work or should I lose the weight first and then do the muscle? If the original plan of walking 5 times per week/exercising 4 (maybe 5) times a week is capable of working how many calories, grams of fat, protein and carbs should I consume per day, I live a very sedentary lifestyle.

    Oh if I have the right idea here are there any supplements that could help

    This is a rough outline of a training regimen. Read the stickied threads in the relevant subforums and nail down an actual plan.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    How to find out how much I should eat (calories, carbs, grams of fat etc.) relevant to my weight and lifestyle? By rough outline do you mean I now need to select what days of the week I will be working out and what day's I am doing what. If so any suggestions there? I was thinking doing 4 days both the 70 minutes walk and weights and 1 day just the walk? maybe go 2 days take a break go 2 more days take a break and then do one day of just walking.

    OK, there is a lof info in the stickies I have to sort through for the nutritional side of things. however what does anybody think of the schedule I listed in my last post. Sorry but the stickies are a bombardment of information I know nothing about. As for nutrition would 1,500 calories (after workout), 260 grams of protein, 130 grams of carbs and 104 gram of fats work out

    Take more than 5 minutes to read the stickies before asking us to spoonfeed answers to you that we cant possibly answer because we arent you.

    Best of luck eating exactly 104 grams of fat a day.

    I spend an hour on the stickies, how much grams of fat do you recommend for a 260 lb male (6'1") (i'll be burning 900 calories a day btw 4 times a week and 600 once a week

    If you were maintaining the rule of thumb is .4 gram fat per lb. BW. And .8 gram protein with the rest being a mix of carbs/fat/protein. But at your weight that may still be a lot if calories. But use those as guidelines.
    160 lbs and jacked is about as impressive as D cups on a 300lb woman
