Today you're going to perform 26-30 minutes of cardio.

Using Food To Burn Fat
By now, you've probably made some good progress, but if things aren't coming along as fast as you'd like, then perhaps you've thought about cutting back on the calories by skipping a meal. Even though it's easy thing to do, it's not a good idea.
Skipping a meal will deprive your muscles of the nutrients it needs in order to recover and grow. Remember that the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn, and the easier it is to get lean. Muscles need protein every 3 hours, which means that cutting a meal is counterproductive to what you're trying to accomplish.
If you're not getting lean fast enough, cut back on your energy calories just a little at each meal. Energy calories come from carbohydrates and fats.
However, don't cut carbs out entirely - that will bring your progress to a halt. Don't cut back on your protein either because your muscles need it.
I hope you're starting to experiment with your own recipes. Now that you know the importance of nutrition, you can make your own healthy meals that taste great and are easy to make. It will make eating right so much easier.
