I have so many questions and I'll probably spend a good time tonight reading and researching threads but for now can you point me in the right direction, please?

So, this is how today's "Foods Eaten" look like:

Total cals - 1574
Fat - 38 grams, 342 cals, 23%
Carbs - 104, 342 cals, 23%
Protein - 194, 774 cals, 53%

Then I entered my activities and it says I'm only burning 280 calories.

Is that right? Am I eating the wrong foods? Tuna, refried beans, little bit of shredded cheese, white crackers (salted), and a lot of water. Am I on the right track?

I cycle for 30 minutes, and lift for 30 minutes. I know you guys told me to just lift weights but according to Fitday I can burn calories cycling than lifting weights. Weird.

Thanks so much for all your help. I really appreciate it.

Do not track activities - only food.

Nosepicker, what are your parameters, and what are your goals?

Are you like 5'1" or what? 140lbs? That is less then what Built weighs, and she is a hot chick. No man should anywhere near that.

No, I'm 5'6"....haha

My upper torso is a bit thick and personally I don't like it. I want my upper body to be thinner.

When you cycle you might burn more calories in that 30 min timespan, but lifting with have a greater increase in your overall metabolic rate. i.e. if you put on muscle, you will burn calories at rest as well which will have more benefit to you in the long run.

So, as far as my diet with my goal in mind am I on the right track? Because I'm going on my 3rd week and I don't see any differences.

Oh, I weighed myself Wednesday and I lost 5 lbs.

What does your workout routine look like? You should probably be eating at extra 1000 calories, give or take.

Cycle 30 mins.
Lift: Shoulders, lats, back
Sit ups

Run 45 minutes
Lift: Tri, chest
Sit ups

Cycle 30 mins
Lift: Squats, lats, shoulders
Sit ups

Not really into the biceps because my arms are probably the only thing bigger than anything else on my body.

Didn't you guys say the more calories, the bigger the muscle gets which is not what I want.

With your calories that low and doing that much activity your body is going to go into starvation mode and your weight loss will stall.

Oh!

No wonder I'm starving after workouts. Hmm....when you say more calories do you mean eat more?

Oh, man. I think I know where you're going with this.

But, yes I do. Thought by doing my cardio first it would jump start my heart rate.

Who cares about your heart rate when you're lifting?

Okay, but am I on the right diet? I understand I need more intake but am I eating the right foods to achieve my goals?

Read the cutting link in my sig.

The individual food choices don't matter for effect - but some foods are more satisfying than others - something you'll want to consider on a cut.

Alright. I'm going to analyze your thread during lunch and ask you tons of questions.
