I've been doing a lot of time on a stationary bike as of late. Doing it now to drop 40 lbs or so to reach ideal playing weight by lacrosse season in February. Not gonna do too much weight training because I really don't need to add bulk at all.

You can't always put a lot of stock in bmi. I, for one, have really wide shoulders and weigh a great deal more than I appear, so my bmi was high even when I was in game shape for sports. BMI doesn't account for body type too well.

With what diet? How many hours a week and how long to reach goal? My lady needs to drop weight...not 40 but if you can drop 40 on a bike that's awesome and she'd love that

Anyone have good exercises to do with dumbbells? I don't have time for a gym membership and I only have dumbbells and a bench at home. As well as some elastic bands for resistance. Right now I'm just doing the basics....bench press, curls, squats, etc. I need to bulk up to play hockey at a high level. I'm only about 5'7 so I need to get strong. I've only been lifting for about a month 5 times a week and my arms are already bulking up.

Here's one to try.

While standing, get in the position to do arm curls, but when you are up and squeezing your bicep when you are doing your curls, rotate and do a shoulder press as well, slow fluid motions and then rotate back and bring your arms down like you were finishing that bicep curl.

That works your biceps and shoulders in 1 workout. You can do rows with the dumb bell as well, keep your back straight of course. You can also do squats with the dumb bells held to your chest. There are a lot of things you can do, the gym is great for access to various machines, but a set of dumb bells and a bench is more than enough to get a lot of stuff done. For legs, it might be a little difficult.

Do lunges to work your legs with the dumbbells. If you have the room walk forward and then go backwards. Otherwise just do foward lunges and then do ones where you step back.

Also for legs put one of foot, toe down, on the bench and dip down with the other leg. To work your core/abs hold the weight with your feet (depending on how heavy they are) and hold the weight out while keeping your stomach tight. Use the bench for this too as your butts on the end of the bench, hold the sides for balance.

Same here. I was obese by this measure six months ago and people would tell me I was ridiculous for wanting to lose weight. Discrediting this measure is gaining steam.

I'm tired of belly fat. I'm 48 and have been working my ass off in the gym for 6 months and I can't get rid of the last 10 pounds or the spare tire (it's much smaller than it used to be but is still there).

I've decided that after the July 4th vacation, I'm going on a straight raw/vegan diet for 30 days. I'll do smoothies (with beans for protein), hummus, fruit and veggies. I'm probably going to go to core work with some cardio 3-4 times a week.

I'd do a combo of biking, running, and lifting (45-60min each session)... 4-5 days a week while keeping the protein high (150-200g+ per day) and carbs low. Should see that weight come off in no time.

Also, you may want to check out some supplements if you want to rev up your metabolism even further - i.e. tribulus, green tea extract, guarana

Going vegan is great, but make sure that you get a balanced diet. When I say "balanced", I am referring to your macro nutrients (protein/fats/carbs). In summary, make sure you are getting enough healthy fats (flax oil, coconut, chia seeds, almonds, hemp seeds, etc.).

Your main strategy should be to CONSISTENTLY consume slighty less calories each day. You should consider looking into intermittent fasting (~8 hours of eating followed by ~16 hours of fasting every day). There are lots of benefits to intermittent fasting (IF), I'll post links later, but a big one I noticed is that I eat less by default and I don't feel hungry at all. I essentially eat from 1 pm through 9 pm and if I happen to extend that window by an extra hour or two it's really not that big of a deal. I lift 4 days/week and do near race-level mountain biking 4 x week.

I don't get headaches anymore either, which is the best part of this because i used to ALWAYS get headaches or migranes and could not function.
Do you have a significant iron deficiency? Iron can be very bad for you if you are taking in more than you need. I just wanted to call that out.
