    my goal is to lose 30 lbs.

    someone at work told me (x amount of muscle = burn fat or calories)
    but personally i dont want to look muscular.

    i just joined a local gym walking on the treadmill about one hour a day everyday. i do have a eliptical i bought a few years ago its a great clothes hanger :p. started using it again about 3 hours on tuesdays and thursdays.

    cant cook and want to make things as simple as possible
    i am eating 6x a day so 6am fruit, 9am Vegetable, 12pm protien.

    One Protien: 2x a day
    1 hardboiled egg (about 2 a day)
    8 walnuts
    2 teaspoons of peanut butter
    1 can of tuna (2 cans a week)

    One Vegetable: 2x a day
    1/2 can of del monte no salt added
    Green Beans/Spinach/Mixed Vegetables

    One Fruit: 2x a day
    8oz glass of welches no sugar added black cherry grape juice.
    4oz oikos organic greek yogurt 90 cal no fat

    my only vice are hotdogs with mustard that i try to limit 1 or 2 per day. nothing here i need to cook except for the eggs but they are easy and i can do them all for the week at one go so not too bad.

    think i should up, drop, or lower anything?
    leave out the yoke on the eggs?

    First off, welcome to JSF :)

    Secondly, I see many pitfalls and problems.
    1) I see no weight lifting.
    2) Too much cardio (combined with the absence of lifting, you will burn muscle as a fuel source)
    3) Your caloric intake is not going to support any worthwhile physique endeavor. It is pitifully low and will amplify the negative effects of #1 and #2.
    4) End result is you will lose weight, but not only will you look like a skinnier version of your current self, you will actually look and feel worse than you do now. Your metabolism will also take a knockout hit to the jaw.

    Read up on the beginner stickies here on training and nutrition and you will be rewarded with a good base knowledge on how to start off on the right foot. Good luck. :tucool:

    Oh don't worry. I bet in 18 months you'll be complaining about not looking muscular :lol:

    It takes a lot of work and time to end up really muscular. It won't sneak up on you.
