    trying to tone up

    i am 17 yrs old and am currently 220 pounds and want to trim out my stomach. i can see the outline of a 4 pack but not at all as noticable as i would like. i just ended my bulking diet and was eating between 4000-4500 calories a day. how much should i bring my calories down to each day, but i also dont want to loose any muscle while trying to tighten my abdominals. I also recently have taken fruits out of my diet, is that a good idea?
    THANKS!

    Try reducing your calories by 500 each week. Might also want to add in a few days of cardio to help aid in burning the tummy fat.

    Eat green veggies instead, but if you need to have fruit, do so once or twice a week.

    I think some fruits are fine like apples, berries, peaches and grapefruits. They have fiber, nutrients and low gi.

    Reduce your calories in increments of 5-10% per week. Wait a week or two before weighing yourself again.

    Some fruits are fine, as Jodi stated. I drank 8oz of apple or orange juice every morning while I was cutting with no ill effects.
