    Im not overweight as a person but as a player i could lose a little weight. is there any way to lose weight and diet without cutting down on carbs or losing muscle mass in the process? also does your weight have anything to do with your speed.

    it's pretty hard to play a cardio intensive sport like soccer, while losing weight without sacrificing performance. You need carbs for energy straight up

    and yes wieght has tons to do with your speed.

    think about it this way, a 2000 lbs car with 200 hp will be slower then a 1500 lbs car with 175 hp (assuming same gearing etc)

    one quick and easy way to weight loss is just watch waht you eat.. cutting down in soft drinks and chocs and stuff helps.. also, try swimming maybe everyday for an hour or so.. i did that and lost 15 kg :D

    healthy cereal (raisin bran, banana nut crunch, granola) for breakfast, tuna sandwiches on wheat for lunch, salad with tuna for dinner, cereal or fruit for snacks

    watch what dressing you use on the sandwich (kraft free mayo is tasty) and salad (try seet and sour dressing) - repeat as necessary

    I would advise to eat a diet consisting of lean protein, moderate carbs and good fats(ie. unsaturated). Cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach...add some weight training to your program and you should be good to go. If you want to minimize muscle loss, make sure u are getting an adequate amount of protein.

    i do weight training mostly on my total gym everyday. upper dfay 1 3 5 lower 2 4 6 rest 7. I am also starting to run. I get what ur saying about weight being related to speed but everyone keeps saying speed cant really be made it is in ur genes and what kind of musle fibers u had. thats why i asked. so even if u have good genes and the right mucle fibers ur still slower if your heavier?

    I'm not too sure on this but that sounds like a bit of an excuse that someone made someday.

    it's true, genetically you are born with only so many twitch fibers...but the one thing you can do is increase the size of them which can make you faster.

    Unneccessary weight will slow you down/limit your vertical in any instance.

    I've lost about 15 kg compared to my worst days. What helped me was something my coach recommended - only eat fruit or vegetables after 6 pm. Your stomach won't be emptly but you'll lose fat pretty fast. If you keep training you shouldn't worry about losing muscles. I still have 5 kg to go to achieve my ideal weight. Every time I lose a kg or two I totally see that I'm getting faster. Useless fat will slow you down.

    i'd recommend vegetables > fruit, there is quite a bit of sugar in fruit that will effectively

    You also have a bunch of fibers that can be converted into either. You are born with a genetic limit, but all of us can improve our speed with training. You also can influence your body's susceptibility to fatigue, which wreaks havoc on your speed, and on your finishing. In my case it seems to hurt my finishing first, as was demonstrated clearly to all yesterday. Thankfully I finally beat the keeper, who had stoned me three times, with a sweet diving header. Take that bast@rd. My legs were dead, but not my head!

    Weight loss is simply taking in less calories than you use in exercise. It doesn't really matter what form you take those calories. The problem with fats is that they contain about twice as many calories per weight than proteins or sugars.

    One thing I do is not to eat anything with partially-hydrogenated fats in it. This is a good trick because pretty much all cookies, candies, and high-fat prepared foods contain them. Also, trans-fats aren’t really good for you health wise.
