[QUOTE=Harzaka;17868238]Then get P90x or something. If you dont have time for that, make time.
Wake up an hour earlier or something.
Everyone can make time for working out. And if you say you got no time, maybe its time to quit MMO's?
Ice cream and Beer? Good luck losing the fat while eating / drinking that.[COLOR="red"]

I'm willing to get up an hour earlier to start running, but once i finnish work around 6 in the evening honestly...going to the gym is out of the question.
As i said, i'm willing to cut out the icecream, but the beer helps me unwind + sleep and helps me be less of a lightweight when i go out.
I'd rather eat less in the day than cut out beer.
ok... let me grab my jaw, because it kind of hit the floor on that one.
You should do: bench press, push ups, some curls, and some lifts. Because you already have your lower body covered with daily life. Bad news is, you're like an olympic jumper... chicken wings for arms, but thighs that could cut glass.

Well, I'm a woman but I guess it doesn't matter (although if you want to keep muscles, it might).
Just keep a calorie diary. Don't eat more and you will lose weight even if you sit on your behind all day.

@the OP: At your weight, it would be detrimental to try to cut calories. Sure, you would lose some fat, but your physique wouldn't look that much better when you were all done. You would be much better off building some muscle. Increasing the size of your muscles will actually make it appear as if you lost some fat. Bigger muscles = more surface area for your subcutaneous fat (fat directly beneath your skin) to cover = you look leaner/more muscular. Reducing bodyfat will also help your aesthetic appearance by revealing your muscles, but if you don't have much muscle to reveal, losing fat isn't going to do a whole lot. Take up strength training. Learn to bench and squat. Once you've built some muscle, then worry about reducing bodyfat. I know you said you don't have much time for the gym, but it only takes a few workout sessions a week. If you can't do that, then there's really not much hope.
Here's what to do:
1) Read this website: http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wi..._Strength_Wiki
2) Search YouTube for "Mark Rippetoe," and learn everything he has to teach you.
3) Start working out and eat sufficient calories.
4) Read this web site to learn how to diet and/or fine tune your physique goals: http://www.leangains.com
Hope that helps.
(For what it's worth, I'm a Nutritional Scientist and a personal trainer, and I've been working out / doing shit like this since ~16-17 years old. Although being a personal trainer doesn't always mean much, my degree is worth a hell of a lot more, and my personal experiences are quite valuable, too.)
Sounds like you're roughly the same as me.I'm 5ft 8" and 142 pounds but around a 32" waist.Most of my fat is stored in my lower belly and love handles though.My weight loss has plateaued since reaching 140 pounds but the belly and love handles are still there..... Not sure how I'm going to lose them
You have to realise that your body has prios
Your body burns Alcohol primarily then carbs then fat and lastly muscle.
Beer wont help you at all, and to build muscle you have to get alot of Protein, and i highly doubt you even get half of what you need.
What do you guys think about running on an empty stomach for weight loss? I hear people saying that since you have nothing in your stomach your body goes right for the fat for energy. But others tell me it's bad for you and your body instead uses your muscles. Anyone have a clue on this? (backing up what you say with research links would be awesome)
No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Here is what you need to do: Get your diet sorted. Eat like a human, not like a pigeon living in a busy city street.
Eat four meals a day (or five if you feel you're getting too hungry between meals when eating four)
1. A decent breakfast. Proteins, they keep you full for a decent amount of time. 50% porridge 50% cottage cheese with a tiny bit of jam and some low-sugar cereal on top, for example.
2. Lunch. Don't be afraid to get some fat. Healthy fats are just that; healthy. A slice of brown bread with some type of high protein ham, a handful of nuts (walnuts = good choice), maybe a light low-sugar yogurt.
3. (from my understanding, you get home around 18:00. This means you should delay dinner until around 20:00, and instead eat something at work around 16:00.) This 16:00-meal needs to keep you going until dinner. Perhaps a low-fat type of quark with some cereal and a fruit (An apple is a decent choice, contains a fair amount of fiber.
4. Dinner. Your plate should consist of a fair amount of meat/fish/whatever the main part of the dish, a good amount of vegetables, and less sauce/pasta/other accessory.
Workout routine. You don't have time to go to the gym? Fine, find yourself a quick and easy workout to do in the morning before breakfast. It'll get you a decent morning routine: Get up -> Workout -> Eat -> Shower/brush teeth etc -> Go to work.
Do the following (requires a pull-up bar http://www.amazon.com/Bars-Strength-...8&node=3408471 ) :
1. Push-ups - It's obvious
2. Plank - http://exercise.about.com/od/abs/ss/abexercises_10.htm)
3. Squats - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squat_(exercise)
4. Pull-ups - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pull-up_(exercise)
All these exercises until exhaustion twice, aka 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4.
Will you become an athlete doing this? No.
Will you see sick improvements after one week? Probably not.
Doesn't mean you shouldn't do it though.
