If you're just starting you will want to only do 1-2 hours of cardio and light weight lifting ( high reps low weight circuit training) and consuming 12-1500 calories is a good idea but you should still eat food and not just shakes. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables ( an apple, 2 bananas, a pear, blueberrys, strawberrys, or whatever fruit you like. Eat a salad and a granola bar for lunch and eat something small every 2 hours between breakfast,lunch and dinner. This keeps your metabolism up. You should do 2-4 hours of cardio and light weight lifting at around 5 or 6 and you should eat dinner about an hour before you work out and then eat something small and healthy plus maybe a glass of orange juice after your workout because you will still burn calories for up to 30 minutes even after you're warmed down and you're done working out. Plus this puts energy back into your body and your body won't go into starvation mode and feed on your muscle.. it will feed on your fat. Make sure to not wait too long after your workout to eat and avoid eating late a night. Also drink lots of water ( 8-11 glasses per day. I just carry around a Galleon of water in a jug and drink it throughout the day. I used to be really overweight but I started to be smart about my health and I joined the swim team and started lifting weights and running and just being really active and now I am really fit with the "swimmer's build". PROTEIN is good but stay away from soy. You want to get your vitamins and protein from food and not isolates (pills). Never drink soda or soft drinks. Soda contains Phosforic Acid which eats away at your stomach lining and turns muscle into fat. Not even diet soda. Just drink water. Losing weight takes time but if you have the will power and the determination you will be very successful. Hope this helped.
