Default trying to lose weight....

As of the beginning of July I was 200 lbs. Now Im 193.

This has been my routine. Every day I benchpress 2 sets of 25 at 130lbs. I jog a mile, walk a half a mile, jog another mile. Then I do 50 pushups.

Its worked well so far, getting rid of 6+lbs, but my real questions relate to my diet. Ive always been a light eater. Any time I eat like a regular eater my weight baloons. Usually I eat one big meal and one small meal and thats all. Any time I eat three meals I gain weight. I hear about eating 6 small meals, but whats a small meal?

Anyway, Im 5'9 btw. Thanks for the help. If you need a pic of me

You say you eat 1 big meal and 1 small meal? Try halving that small meal. Drink plenty of water. When eating six or seven smaller meals it absorbs more nutrients and also increases your metabolism.

But what would be a good target weight? I think I look good at 180, but aim for 175.

It is better to eat smaller meals like you say. You may be looking at 300 calories per small meal if you are looking to drop weight. This is like say a sandwich with healthy filling.
The beer consumption will definately pile on the pounds, a normal beer ranges from 140-200 calories depending on brand. If you must drink, maybe try bud lite or coors lite as they ar only 100 calories. Waking up with a heavy head usualy causes healthy eating to go out the window aswell.
Try to run first early in the morning. this will increase your metabolism for the whole day. Also remember that muscle is heavier than fat, so if you are doing weight training, this could increase your weight.

Don't worry about what a good weight number is for you. Let the mirror determine that. If you don't see some abs, keep dieting and doing your cardio.

As for meals, try to keep what you eat each day the same so when you make changes you'll know what factor is causing the weight loss or weight gain. If your guessing, you won't really know what is causing the weight loss. This is most people's problem because we don't look at our diet or cardio the same as we do for our boxing training. But it has to be the same....which is on a set schedule with progression added as we get in shape.

Write out a meal plan...try to break up the meals into 6-7meals a day. This constant grazing will increase your metabolism as you need energy to breakdown the food. Keep protein to 1g/1lb of your Body weight. Keep carbs to 2g/1lb of bodyweight. Keep fats around 40-50g a day. Do that see where you your weight plateues. Add cardio to continue losing weight. When your up to training 6x a week with at least 4 days of cardio at 45min a run...again see what you look like. No abs? No muscle definition? THen lower carbs by 25g a week and let you body drop the body fat. Doing this I've never had to lower my carbs under 1g/1lb of bodyweight. And I got to where you could see most of my abs with great definition and very low bodyfat.

You might want to keep a food log for a couple of weeks to get an idea of how many calories you are eating.

Drink lots of water and run more. Water will fill you up so you won't be as hungry. Then you can eat smaller meals (preferably healthy meals ) with lots of veggies and fruit. Skip out on red meat and eat chicken and fish instead.

You also need to run more than what you are doing. Take it slower if you have to and run 3 miles at least to shed pounds. Or jog for a extended time (30-45 mins). The important thing is to keep moving and not walk. I went from 185 to 172 in a matter of weeks doing these things... I'm back at a healthy 175 now.

ive always had some "baby fat" around my belly, except when I was real deep into the amateur boxing scene. I had a trainer that worked me so hard, I thought I was dying in the morning, and I got in great shape.

So, I want to lost that weight around my belly. I have strong abs, just have to get rid of the layer. Im aiming for 175-180 is usally a perfect weight for me.
