Depends on person to person. Some people I know can't shift the fat without the cardio as they'll have to stupidly reduce calories. Calories are burned longer "after" training with weights than cardio. I always recommend a mixture of both. Don't forget the most important muscle is the heart.

Also, weight training will help maintain the muscle you have (with a high protein diet) and make the body burn the fat. The mirror is more reliable at judging changes in body composition than the scales.

I know what you meant mate (good twisted film), but yeah I prefer my answer. Only on Sundays for me as it's "cheat day" where I eat what I like as I train daily.
Damn it, didn't have anything yesterday :rant:

Double chocolate cake mmmmmmm.

Good work fella. If you can manage to add in some upper body weight sessions (doesn't have to be heavy - can be high rep stuff with lighter weights) you'll burn extra calories for longer.
Thanks good advise for me there :)

I normally have sat as my day off so I eat what i like then, dont think I could keep it up long term without the break day. I will try the weights and see if it helps. BTW how come you know so much about this stuff?

diet and training have been a big part of my life the last 8yrs.

lots and lots of evolution in way of food prep and food choices, as well as training ideas. cook twice a week, vacuum seal it in the fridge. ready to go when i want it.

egg omelettes with chicken and vege's, sometimes cheese and/or bacon
beef or chicken with vege's

mostly fibrous vege's, minimal carbs except around training.

It's been a slow and steady weight gain for me for about 17 years from 155lbs to 237lbs. 12 years ago at 208lbs I started doing power lifting workouts in the neigbours garage. Last year I stopped eating the company lunch, brought sandwiches from home. That way I could break my lunch into three parts and keep the portions smaller. Now I'm 223lbs. I would say that cardio is my weak point I don't do any and wind easily. But usually start riding the bicycle in the summer. If you have strong muscles it doesn't take long to build endurance.

Always been in to training even from school. I'm a martial artist by trade (hence the nickname) but it's just a passion of mine. I actually started as a stress reliever. I'll be the first to admit I'm a bit of a nut job so training is a way of relaxing me plus it's a must for my job.

That was the reason I made the joke in your introduction threat, you seemed to have missed it :D
