I got a membership to a gym and I need to lose some weight in 3 months. I need some tips?

I am 18, 6’3 and 173 lbs. I need to lose some gut and I want to in 3 months. I just got a membership to a gym and I have access to all the machines but I dont know which ones to use to maximize my full experience. I want to look better overall. Can anyone come up with a schedule of what I could do when I go there that would maximize my time and help me to start looking better? My eating habits are good and I do cardio 4 times a week. Thanks a lot!
I also wanna tone up a bit too

    The only way to lose weight is to eat less calories than you burn each day.

    Cycling, or anything aerobic is a decent way to burn more calories, and are far more effective than muscular acvtivities. But eating less calories will have a far bigger impact than a few hours at the gym a week.

    But really, if your eating habits were as good as you say they are, you wouldn’t need to lose weight!!!! – so look into that aswell.

    Do some basic weightlifting to establish muscle. This continues to burn carbs well after you’ve stopped the workout. Make sure to rest the muscle group rest 2-3 days before working them again.

    Mix this in with cardio workouts and you will be amazed.

    You’re in luck! It seems that guys gain mostly their weight in the gut, but it’s the first spot to melt away the fat! I recommend a personal trainer to show you exercises and how to use the machines. If personal trainer are out of your budget, here’s a couple little tips.

    Keep up the cardio exercises! Make sure you exercises for at least 20 mins, this will help you burn some stuff and keep the heart up to beat! I recommend changing cardio exercises from day to day, it keeps it interesting and you will surprise your body with different moves (will burn more fat!).

    Toning wise, the best way is to do long sets of repetitions with lower weights. Start with 3 sets of 10 repetitions, and make sure to do the repetitions nice and slow. After a couple of days, increase your workout by doing 3 sets of 15 and then go up a weight level and start back at 3 set of 10.

    Also, Try working out with the stability ball. I find it great for toning and fun to use. Make sure someone shows you how to use it. Look around the gym, might have a guide on how to use them.

    Eat only when hungry and that too not more three times a day. Take only water, and nothing else. in between.

    Chew each morsel 32 times.

    Take light exercises and brisk walks regularly preferably twice a day.

    Cardio will burn calories.

    Choose whatever machine appeals to you the most..

    Consider the eliptical trainer, treadmill, stationary bike or swimming. If your gym offers a personal trainer, he/she should be able to help you come up with a lifting schedule to target where you want to tone up.

    I hope this helps and good luck!

    There is no magic weight-loss pill, supplement, fad diet, or juice. The ONLY way to lose weight is to consume less calories than you burn. Brad Pitt didn’t get buff for Fight Club by drinking green tea, and you won’t either.

    Hoodia, on the other hand, has been scientifically proven to reduce hunger. The problem with hoodia is that it is not regulated by the FDA, and studies have indicated that most products claiming to contain hoodia actually have little, if any, pure African hoodia. Those products that did contain hoodia were inconsistent from one capsule to the next. I have found two brands that seem to be consistent and effective, Relacore and PowerNutra.

    Exercise doesn’t mean you have to join a gym or go to an aerobics class, although I would highly recommend it. To burn fat, you should exercise at a moderate pace for at least thirty minutes. A moderate pace is one in which your heart rate is elevated but you’re not so winded that you can’t carry on a normal conversation. That is the mode in which your body burns fat stores. High heart-rate cardio work tells your body to burn glycogen and store the fat for later—you don’t want that.

    Walk for 30 minutes every day including weekends, Mondays, and Fridays. Do at least 30 minutes of weight training each week. Do 60 minutes of additional, higher intensity cardio each week. You don’t need additional equipment—infomercial products like the Ab Lounger, Sauna Belt, etc. are all worthless gimmicks so don’t waste your money.

    Eat breakfast, and eat five small meals per day instead of three big meals. Don’t starve yourself during the day—many low-calorie diets fail because when you go hungry, your body switches to “famine mode” and stores fat for the coming drought. On the other hand, if you don’t wake up ravenous, then you ate too much the day before. Stop eating at least two hours before you go to bed.

    Cut back on the foods you eat with high fat and high sugar content. Eat only single servings (read the label) with less than 3 grams trans fat and 3 grams sugars. Your primary source of sustenance should be grilled boneless skinless chicken breasts and canned tuna (in water, not oil). No dairy (except low fat cottage cheese occasionally); no processed meats; no heavy sauces; no chips, cookies, sodas, breads, etc.

    Another trick I’ve learned about reducing calories is to “clean the pipes”. You can do this by eating more raw vegetables and fresh fruit. You can also streamline the process with fiber supplements. I like Metamucil and Dr. Schulze Intestinal Formula.

    Other than a daily multi-vitamin like Centrum Advanced Formula, the only other supplement recommended is an Omega-3 fish oil capsule like Carlson Laboratories Super Omega-3 Fish Oils. Omega-3 is a vital fatty acid that our bodies don’t produce. Omega-3 benefits are wide-ranging and proven by clinical studies. From heart health to depression treatment to pregnancy health, Omega-3 benefits are too good to ignore if you are interested in health.
