You've just found the key to life long fitness and looking HYOOGE. Ditch the resistance training and eat more food so you can jog more.

How about eating while you jog? That would be even more effective.

Funny thing is, if you read my FIRST post (you don't even need to read the rest of the thread), I recommend EXACTLY the opposite of what he did. I said jogging sucks, and you'd be better off focusing on gaining lean mass...and he decides to jog and cut calories and surprise, surpise, is unhappy with the results.

I don't think jogging is very valuable to be honest. It it hard on the body both in terms of your joints and hormonally. You don't get lean by burning a few calories from jogging. You get lean by eating healthy and having a muscular physique that burns calories just by virtue of having lots of muscle mass.

Better to focus on one goal, otherwise you are chasing the wind.
At your height/weight, you would make the most progress visually by adding some mass to your frame.
