If you want to do that much cardio, that looks good to me. Why so much cardio?

I've got a small frame. Some muscle definition. All spots except for the lower abdominal and hip area, which is just slightly pudgy. I'm wanting to get rid of it before the summertime comes.

I had been reading ... some forum, about losing 1/3 a lb. of fat per day on the treadmill, providing you did 40-45 minutes cardiovascular work 3x per week... only counting after you attain a dripping sweat. I'd like to test this theory out. If it's true, it's ... great. We'll see. Though I am sure it depends on your caloric defecit as well. I am about 200 cal/day in defecit with my diet. My protein is up to 218g, and I am 150 lbs. Carbs have stayed up around 35%, and fats are 23% or so. So I did lower carbohydrates considerably from before. All my fat comes from EFA sources (Natural Peanut Butter, Flax).

And I will live and die by the rule, no carbs after 6pm. I've yet to ever test this one out. I want to see the results on that. I will be consuming about 52g of real food protein on my last meal, to last me the night.
