    Guys,

    I'll let Dave & Mr. G give the definitive word on the amount/intensity of cardio, but I've been reading Dave's "Q&A with Dave Palumbo" thread and in it, he recommends longer durations of cardio with low intensity. He advocates keeping your heartrate under 120 bpm. As far as durations go, I've seen anthing from 30 to 90 mins. I am currently doing 45 mins.

    Dave's explanation is this: When you do lower intensity cardio, the body fuels itself from its own fat. However, when you up the intensity, the body needs a different fuel source- it fuels itself on carbs. How does the body get carbs when you're on a no-carb diet? It eats at your muscle and converts it to carbs (or maybe glucose). At any rate, when you do high-intensity cardio, you switch from burning your fat to burning your muscle (something we definitely do NOT want to do). Again, this is what I've learned off of Dave's thread. I'll wait for him or Mr. G. to give the answer.

    Welcome, Pan!

    And about what kind of cardio to do: I have seen Dave mention mostly walking on a treadmill, but I have also seen where he uses the recumbent bike on his thread...again, we'll get the definitive answers from either Dave or Mr. G....

    I thought for the first couple of weeks they would ease us into the program by only doing weight training & thats why cardio was not mentioned? May be i am wrong...

    Mr G, does that include me too (calling you?)

    Also the greatest thing happened to me this morning, my wife in her effort to help support me in these 16 weeks has decided to tag along with me and follow the womens diet (from the hard core transformation), my question is since she only does some cardio a few times a week what should she cut from the womens meal plan (i assume she needs less calories if she is not working out with weights)

    Dave and Mr. G.,

    I've been having to do my cardio at a speed of 1.5 on the Lifestride treadmill to keep my hear rate under 120 bpm. Is this OK (it's really slow)? I guess it's because I'm so out of shape. I would be interested to hear at what speed you do your cardio when dieting to keep your heart rate under 120 bpm. Thanks!
