    50lbs less than you are would be a good place to start.

    For someone "in shape" 200lbs
    For someone who looks good, 240+

    I have desk job so it kills me. Guess some cardio would help shed pounds.

    Any good places to look for newbis on weight training? I have a gym I can use but honestly don't know how to properly use a single thing in it. From what I have read they say do set's of this and that. But I don't know what they are talking about where should I start?

    Harden the fuck up. Lots of people here spend all day sitting at a desk.


    You're looking for information? Try reading the stickies and the archives. That'd be a good start.

    Wrong wrong and wrong.

    Seriously, screw the food at your work. I've worked in large corporations with cake and pizza around constantly and it's not hard. You don't have to force down a can of tuna, mix it up.
    Make a nice steak lunch at home and bring it.
    Make a giant salad and eat that to keep you full.
    Keep yourself full with fruit/veggie snacks.

    It's not rocket surgery bro.

    BTW I brought a banana and apple and salad every day. Banana after first hour of work. Apple after second hour. Have lunch. Have salad 1 hour later, badaboom you're full for the whole day.
