Weight & Fat Loss | Some help?

Hey there guys, been lurking around here for a little while, and just thought id post up.

Well, Im 19 and a Guy, and well the winter has taken its toll mighty hard
on me i got the whole belly and butt thing and it aint no good, health wise haha, my Girl thinks is cute but yeah
id like to get in shape for summer :) Right now i have a weight bench at home and your typical Exercise bike.

I was just wondering if you could shed some light, im of course looking for fat loss and to tone up. I live in a tiny tiny town
and there is no Gym!!!! But i do try to do other stuff like walking and what not.

How long should i be on the bike for and such is what im really looking for, right now im riding for about 45 mins, where the intensity of the bike raises and falls.

Well anyone with any good info please share :)

no 45 min it grest. do cardio first then weight lifting to burn more fat calories.
but remember the diet that is very important too.

Hmm so you think 45 mins is ok or is that too long should i break it up as a 25 min warm up and then some weights, and another 20 cool down ???

you have the right idea with the bike. If it is fat you wnat to lose then exercise at about 50% of your heart rate max. so if you are 19 that would be about 100 to 110 beats per minute. the other thing that is just as important is the food you eat. try to stay away from the saturated fats and watch the amount of carbs you ingest.
I also suggest if you do cardio in the morning not to eat anything before to help burn off more carbs and fat, but always eat before you workout with resistance training. and last plenty fo water about close to one gallon a day if possible. if you follow this you will see the fat roll off.
