    I'm still new to all of this working out and everything, as I've only been doing it since about January. Back in November of last year, I lost 15lbs in a week due to Mono, and since then I've regained nothing back. The thing is, since I lost all that weight so fast, I had a lot of 'extra skin.'

    I'm 5'11 and weigh about 165 depending on the time of day. When I held out that body fat percentage machine thing, it said I was at 13%. That's my pic in AV. Well, I want to get under 10%, but I feel like I'm not eating the right foods, or just not doing enough cardio.

    I have an older friend of mine who was at about 340 lbs, and his trainer put him on an extremely strict diet of just lean protein and greens, and that's it. I think the idea was no carbs and no sugar, but that's all he could eat. What I'm wondering is if that would work for me.

    He told me that if I did that for just one month, that I'd notice a huge difference. I also think that besides just the eating, I'm going to start swimming every day for about forty five minutes. As far as muscle mass, I would love to get my arms bigger and also my chest. My legs are naturally big and I just want to tone them up, not get bigger. I'm thinking that the swimming will do what I want to my legs.

    I'm also wondering if with the chicken and green bean diet, if there are any protein shakes that I can drink that wouldn't go against that diet. A shake with very little to no sugars and no carbs, obviously. I'm also wondering if because I have some loose skin, if I should work out to get bigger, if that makes sense. My thought process is that if I get bigger, it'll tighten up the skin.

    Any help would be great!

    no one is born with big legs.. instead of focusing on arms/chest.. how about doing the stickied routine up top. It'll give you the kind of results you're looking for.

    Well, I never work out my legs, and hereditarily, my family on my mom's side have really big legs. Everyone loves my calves and everyone I've fooled around with has asked me if I played soccer or ran in high school...

    Post a pic and you'll quickly find out whether your legs are big or not.

    I know guys with huge calves that haven't worked out a day in their lives. The reason they have some large calves is because they walk on the damn balls of their feet.

    I'm not looking to be body builder huge, I just want to have a thin swimmer's build with nice pecs and bigger arms.

    And, for the person who said not to just eat chicken and green beans, what should I be eating to lose body fat? The diet in the first sticky is way too much food, more than I could ever eat in a day.

    I'm also not rich, and can only afford about 40$ worth of groceries a week right now
