First Excuse my english =P , I’m 20 i'm a graphic designer student, i have some questions if you could help me i'd appreciate, as i told you i'm 20 i'm skinny, but in the last year i got some fat, like the chest and stomach, i don't excercise since i was 18, right now the belly fat isn't a problem but i'm getting more and more, so i want a workout to stop it and gain some weight, in my home we have an elliptical machine and a pair of dumbbells, so if you can help me with some excercise or workout i would appreciate it so much, also i eat 3 meals 4 some times when i keep wake at 2 am or something like that.
Unfortunately we cannot target fat in one area of our body; we have to lose fat all over our body in order to shed fat in the desired area. In order to eliminate the fat that you have gained I suggest doing cardio 3-5 times a week and pay careful attention to your diet. In order to lose weight you have to be in a caloric deficit. Stay away from anything with added sugar (fruit is fine), that has been fried, sauces, gravies.
Try to only eat whole grain/wheat carbohydrates. Fill your diet with a lot of vegetables and lean protein such as chicken, egg whites, turkey, lean beef cuts, and extra lean ground beef.
These foods are going to be very filling. The combination of a strict diet with the foods I layed out and exercise 3-5 times a week should cause a large caloric deficit which hopefully will result in fat loss. Good luck and thanks for writing in!
