Well im seeking advice for my uncle in a werid kind of way. He's overweight, very overweight... I'd say he's 5'6 and weighs 270 pounds. He's a truck driver so his biggest problem is the manner of how and what he eats.
He's been asking my advice and I know already that there are the golden rules:
Calories in < Calories out
Cardio isn't end all be all
and so on and so forth....
My delimea is that he feels cardio is necessary, but I know first hand that its very easy to "overtrain" with cardio and I dont want him to do that. I suggested he do a "trial" run to guage his current level of fitness, because irregardless of how much I reason with him he will still want/demand the cardio. So im going to limit his cardio to prevent overtraining. Due to his current job he really wont be able to lift so to speak as we do and thats a big bomb on his part but he can aslo get it done in the kitchen.
