Help And Advice Needed

Hi All,
i am a 26yr old male 5ft 7 and currently weigh in at almost 17stone, most of which is blubber as you can imagine. i have just started back to the gym and am currently training 3 times a week. about an hour spent on lifting and 20-30 mins on cardio (treadmill).

i am also 3 days into my new diet...... which consists of 1 promax diet shake in the morning (9am) one in the afternoon (4pm) and a meal at about 8pm which i am limiting to either lean steak or chicken breast and 1 small jacket potato. my thinking is by limiting my carb intake my body will burn fat quite rapidly.

i am taking the following supplements fish oil 6 per day split into 3 am and 3 pm. creatine at same times and also C.L.A.

my energy levels are low and i have a bit of a short fuse at the moment but im thinking that will change once my body get used to the drop in calories.

can anyone give me some advice? as im a bit daunted by it all i really want to see quick results.

    no wonder your feeling low on energy!
    thats not nearly enough food no matter what your goal.
    are you not eating any solid food until your dinner at 8?
    even though your goal is to lose weight you should still try to eat every 2-3 hours, just keeping an eye on portion sizes and carbs as you pointed out.
    have a look around the diet section you'll find some good examples on there!

    Read some of the articles, mate. They will point you in the right direction, and is an ideal starting place.

    Your diet is very poor - you need to eath real food, at regular intervals. What you are doing at the moment is far from ideal.

    read the articles and you won;t go wrong.

    Good luck with it - and keep us posted.

    cheers for the replys lads...... i am eating fruit throughout the day to stave off the hunger pangs....... do you honestky think this is the wrong route to go down? as i am desperate to get down to say 15 and a half stone before i level off to slow weight loss....... im willing to put up with the hunger and the low energy levels.....but only if i think i will loose weight quickly.

    would a sensible diet drop the pounds just as quick?
