    I'm a 17 year old male and I weigh 67 kg at 5'8". I would like to lose around 5 kg or more in order to have a flat stomach or at least some what near to that. How would you recommend doing this ?

    Monitor your calories, make sure you do your cardio, easy as that. I've tried losing weight through lifting weights only and with cardio. Cardio is FAR quicker but the best way would be to eat less, eat better quality food, do some cardio and lift a little too. Lost 8lbs in the past 5 days, due to fasting and cardio.

    First you need to understand what caused you to gain more weight. Is it mainly carbs, fat or a combination?
    There are natural weight loss organic products you can then use to minimise carb or fat absorption.

    After breaking my fast (Iftaar, if you're Muslim). I go most days, not all.

    also advocate fasting; I don't do it for religious purposes, but if you search intermittent fasting thats the plan I've been using to good effect. cut all junk, processed food and drink, and take in a ton of water, a lot of protein and unsaturated fat, and some clean low GI carbs. eat as much veg as you want/can; one or two pieces of whole fruit max. HIIT cardio one day, steady state the next, mixed with weight lifting. results guaranteed.

    I changed it about, because I tend to get bored really easily. I either:

    HIIT - 15 minutes, 2 minutes quick and rest for 30 seconds.
    Steady Pace - 30 minutes.
    Brisk walk (I only do this, if I am doing a weight session) - Put the incline on max, then set it to a brisk walk pace.

    Either works, just burn calories, sweat like a pig and push yourself. Remember you're only cheating yourself. You usually know if you've had a good session.
