well I run for about 5-10 minutes 50 situps i do at least 50 crunches, but i up it by 10 everyday.. some squats, and pushups sometimes stationary bicycle. I don't really know anything good to do for 30 minutes, I've asked a few people and they just say cardio for this amount of time and this for that amount of time, but to be honest, I don't know what a good cardio exercise is, I'm just starting out if you can't tell lol

I am on day 5 of FS and have lost 3 pounds. I alternate and do at least 30-45 min of walking or bike or treadmill. Are you sure you are following it exactly during phase 1? Are you drinking coffee or reg tea? Maybe up your running time or just walk for another 20 on top of running. Are you bloated? Drinking lots of water?

I'm no expert, but I don't think you should expect to lose a lot of weight doing only 5 or 10 minutes of cardio. If you're young, 30 minutes a day of good hard exertion should be enough. If you're older (mid 30s) and/or post-child, you have to go to at least 45 minutes. Speed walking is a good place to start, and you can run for a few minutes for every 10 minutes of walking, gradually increasing the running and decreasing the walking time. Get some decent shoes.
Everyone's body is different... So don't be discouraged about what's happening with other people. Just keep doing the best you can do!
