The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I need help.: Losing Weight.

    These forums seem like a very knowledgeable place to ask questions about living life healthy and fit. See, that is where I lack. I am not a lazy, nor unfit person, but I do lack major stamina and I would like to lose some weight, possibly before or in the month of June.

    I am 15, 5"6 and I weigh 150 Pounds, I'm around 10-15 pounds under the over weight limit. I am naturally chubby, and numerous doctors that I have went to said that it will be impossible for me to trim down and become "slim" because of my broad shoulders. Many friends and numerous amounts of people tell me otherwise though.

    I just subscribed to my local YMCA and have access to the weight lifting room and the cardiovascular training equipment.

    What would you suggest I do to lose weight, fairly fast. It's possible for me to go to the YMCA every day if my schedule allows it, also depending on when it closes because I have to babysit every day after school. Also, I would like to establish a good diet for myself. Would it be possible for you to help me?

    I am fairly active but lack stamina. For example, whilst doing the "Beep Test", I only managed to reach level 8. Whereas I should/want to reach level 11, 12 or possibly even 13. That's just one example.

    As for what I eat, I usually eat a VERY light breakfast, like, a cup of milk and perhaps a toast before I go to school. I skip lunch 90% of the time and only eat once I come from home. When I come home, I usually eat like a sandwich or two (Vegetarian sandwiches, I am Vegetarian,) and a cup of juice. For dinner, my mom usually cooks rice or something along those lines. Rice, pasta, whatever is ready and made for dinner that night.

    What would you suggest I do to lose weight on my STOMACH, THIGHS and FACE? Those are the main areas I want to concentrate on.

    I have access to a weight lifting room and cardiovascular equipment. What do you suggest I do routinely to lose weight before the month of June? I'd like to lose 20 pounds so I would be around 130 pounds.

    Thank you very much.

    E: I am also aware that this is forum is called "WannaBeBig" forums focused on helping people bulk up and weight lift. But, I'm pretty sure and hope that many of you will be able to help me to slim down. For sure I'm aiming for a ripped body, but that isn't going to come any time soon, first, I want to lose weight. I've been mostly overweight my whole life, and it's just now that I've started losing weight. I was 5"5 and weighed 170 pounds at the beginning of the year, overweight. (September), I lost 20 pounds and weight 150 pounds now and I've grown an inch. I still want to lose more though.

    THANKS

    Wow, you need to slap your doctor and ask him how the hell having broad shoulders has ANYTHING to do with being lean.

    Go to http://www.fitday.com and track your calories for a few days so we can get a better picture of what a normal day is for you, food wise.

    You say you're a vegearian and mentioned drinking milk. Do you eat cheese as well? How about eggs?

    Hey, failed.
    Also, Invain, I'm a Vegetarian, not a vegan. But yes, I eat cheese, but not eggs.

    Invain: For today, here is what I've eaten so far (I'll probably drink a glass of milk, a few glasses of water, perhaps 2 cups of concentrated apple juice and go to bed.

    Mini croissants x 5
    White bread x 2 slices
    VEGE hotdog x 1, but I could not find a vegetarian hotdog in the search option, so i just put in a plain hotdog which im sure has more calories but meh.

    total: 949 calories
    46 fat
    108 carbs
    26 prot

    having drank the apple juice and milk this is what my intake would've been for the day.:

    1423 calories
    52 fat
    206 carbs
    35 prot

    **^^ the above is what I would usually eat on my weekdays, but some days i may eat lunch, usually i skip it, and i usually have dinner though, which is usually a plate of rice or pasta

    peanut butter

    etc

    all right
    but if it isnt too much trouble
    could someone like make a simple yet effective dietary plan for me ?
    I think I should deal with what I eat first, then working on scheduling my workout routine.
