I an 25 and have always had a passion for weight taining until 12 months ago.
Being a naturally heavy guy (fighting weight of 110kgs) i have always been naturally strong with above average muscle content.
However, due to an extremally difficult year academically and personally i have gone from training 5 days a week to zero. This week i re-joint the gym and have my heart set on losing the 20kgs of fat i have put on (yes, 20kgs!) whilst increasing my strength to something like it was just over a year ago..
I am doing spin classes and starting an EDT weights program this week..
Does anybody have any advice with regards to diet (calories, carbs, protein intake) and also possible supplements such as ephadrin that i could take to assist?
Now, to address your concerns - I could go into it, or I could be lazy and direct you to "Homework 1" in my sig.
I choose the latter.
Go have a peek, devise a plan based on that and post up your intentions with regard to diet and training once you've had the chance to review easier and more effective means to achieving your current goal.

I think yur going to say i need to consume less carbs and more protein at a guess haha
Any avice/opinions/feedback would be much appreciated
You surmise correctly........
My advice would be to kick the spin to the curb, and lift more.....you'll get there a whole hellufalot faster. My son is 6'7" and he was skinny-fat, three months ago.....he is now a beast. Completely changed his body composition. All he did was in Built's sig.......and it didn't really happen until he STOPPED THE FRIGGIN CARDIO!
Nothing more irritating than a giant telling you they can't gain any weight, while wearing a weighted vest, climbing mountains each day.
40lbs using Baby Got Back, and Fitday, per Built's recommendations is 3 months, tops.....get going. Take a leap of faith - I did - DITCH THE CARDIO.....or at least, keep it to HIIT.
