    Hi
    Im 18 years of age, male, quite tall (5"10), and weigh roughly 14 stones. Im mainly have a bellly, but everything else is okay. From tomorrow i intend to jog for an hour and abit in the morning everyday, plus during the day do about 50 sit ups. In the evening staight after eating, go on the treadmill for 20-30 mins. Is there anything else i could do to take away this belly, and become fitter? All suggestions are welcome. Thanks for your time

    Its all about the diet mate. The usual advice is to find your bmr, multiply by 1.55 (to account for exercise), then eat 500 calories below that. Also, it might be worth researching HIIT.
    Good luck

    As above watch your diet.

    Additionally, dont train every day let alone twice a day. Train every other day but push harder and get some variety in there to. Run one day, cross train the next, cycle the next and so on.

    Consider buying a basic dumbbell set and an exercise ball to add further variety.

    50 sit ups is nothing really, use the exercise ball and do 3-4 sets of 25-30 every other day, and add sets as you get better.

    Watch what you eat, like the others said. Do a search for 'Why is running not helping me lose some weight' - I commented there about diet, although i didn't go into too much detail.

    I would refrain from exercising as much as you have planned- recovery is very important and, if you're not very fit at the moment, you will just injure yourself before being able to put the work in to see results.

    After running, look to have a little protein and some carbohydrate- your muscles replenish themselves much quicker in the 2 hours after exercise so use this to help speed recovery- it will reduce the time needed between exercising. But be careful- don't consume too many carbs as it will just go straight back on as fat.

    The thing to really realise is that it takes time- it's very easy to put the weight on, but takes dedication to remove it. Stick at it and I'm sure you will get there.
