I ran on my treadmill on 5.6 speed for only 5 minutes, I couldnt even do a slower level after I burned out. Whats wrong with me....

Sounds like you have a lack of endurance. Start at a slower speed, then build up.
>>
>>18056314
I won't lose the weight I need to lose, I gotta go hard to burn what I need to get rid of. Im trying to lose like 30 pounds or so.
>>
>>18056322
well you aint gonna do it with running alone.

what else are you doing?
>>
>>18056322
If it's weight loss, then time > speed

Running on 4.6 speed for 30 minutes > 5.6 speed for 5 min

You can work out all day every day but without the proper diet in place you're not going to notice much of a change.

> TDEE could be 2200 Calories
> You eat 2800 Calories
> 30 minutes cardio burns around 200-300 calories
> You end the day with 2500-2600 Calories
> Still over TDEE
> Extra calories stored as fat

You won't lose anything that way. Given the numbers I put are just random for example purposes.
>>
>>18056310

it sounds like you tried running for the first time and then got depressed because you arent somehow magically fit.

consider going again tomorrow at a slower speed.

in highschool it took me 20 minutes to run a mile, and most of that was walking. then every single gym class all i did was walk around the track, and sometimes id run. by the end of the semester, 7 minute mile, not running all of it.

Right now nothing extra excersise wise, just eating a little bit better on top of it.

>>18056330
I don't think I have the energy for a 30 minute jog, but I see what your saying

>>18056347
So what are you suggesting I do?

Google a TDEE Calculator and fill out the info. That will give you a general idea of your TDEE (Total daily energy expenditure).
After that you need to work on your diet. You want to eat 400-500 calories under your TDEE. Cutting calories like this will drop fat regardless of exercise, exercise will just speed up the process but increasing the deficit.
>>
>>18056360

do this>>18056368

you will fail if you dont have a PLAN. doing little shit you think is healthy is going to leave you depressed, frustrated, and with no results.

hit up /fit/ stickies for strength building too.
>>
>>18056368
Ill try this but its so hard because I get hungry so easily now, Im used to eating whatever whenever
>>
>>18056455
It's really tough. Everyone gets cravings.
I recommend you browse /fit/ more often, they have a lot of motivation, tips, and stories from fat people currently cutting and fat people who have already made it.

It's a long road that's easy to fall off of. You can do it though bro, just start and keep at it.
>>
>>18056455

if it was easy you wouldnt be asking for advice.

invest in broths to tide you over. a good broth is low calorie and gets the meat cravings out.
>>
>>18056455

also you can still eat WHENEVER just not whatever.

if you feel hungry cook up half a pound of greenbeans. thats like 30 calories.
>>
OP here, just looked up the stats for what I need and its 2301 calories a day and it says itll take until september to lose 30. I think I can get it sooner if I workout more but that seems like the general think to follow.
>>
>>18056603

>2301 calories a day

you probably way over estimated a lot of your stuff.

the standard is that we burn 2000 a day. if you're fat, you are likely eating way more or burning less.

a safe bet is 1500 a day, a pound a week. if you're losing more, well thats a bonus
>>
>>18056636
I did light workout, and 30 pound loss for my weight and goal, came out that much
>>
>>18056661

you diont know the definition of light work out.

1500 a day and a 20 minute jog. you'll thank me.
