You didn't say anything about resistance exercise. That's what will help you gain upper body weight. Your gut will be the last to go, and you'll need to reduce your calorie intake to do it, but it certainly can be done. Keep up with the cardio and start lifting weights, and feel free to post back if you have questions about that.

Take care,
Rich

Cardio is more effective when done 45-60 mins. Try to do exercises that are general body work-outs yet target the abs too. I have seen some such exercises on this article.http://bit.ly/3-best-abs-exercises
