    I just started working out again. This monday will be my 5th week of training monday-Friday.

    On June 25th I weighted in at 219lbs. Friday I tipped the scale at 199. I am 5'10"

    I try to get to the gym twice a day. Once bright and early in the morning and either on lunch or in the evening. I usually do only cardio on one workout and lift and do cardio on the 2nd workout of the day. I do my cardio on a life fitness elyptical(sp). 30 minutes per session each and I do the personal trainer setting that according to the machine burns about 600 calories per session.

    When I lift I do as follows:

    Monday: back/bi's
    Tuesday: chest/Tri's
    Wednesday: core/shoulders
    thursday: legs
    Friday: bi's/tri's

    Genetically my family is pretty large, equipt with belly and gyno on the chest, of which I have both. Since starting my workout again I have seen a big difference in arms, shoulders, and my clothes have started fitting a lot better a long with my endurance has increased a lot.

    My diet consists of the following:

    Breakfast (before workout): 1.5 cup of raisin bran with skim milk.
    Protein shake after workout
    Some sort of lean microwaveable meal for lunch.. usually michalenas lean gourmet meals b/c their cheap and im a terrible cook lol.
    2 hours later another protein shake
    About 4:30 i eat another microwaveable low fat meal

    About 5:30 I head back to the gym for cardio/ + lifting if I didn't do it in the morning.

    Any tips/suggetsions would be appreciated. I have seen pretty decent results doing what im doing so far. Would just like some advice from some of the more experienced individuals on the board.

    Thanks in advance :wavey:

    Get rid of the microwave meals, they're shit.

    How many total calories are you taking in per day? It looks a little low, but I could be wrong.

    It probably is low, and truthfully I haven't even been keeping an accurate count.

    Those meals are about 250-300 each and i eat two per day. Not quite sure on how many are in the raisin bran/protein shakes. I don't think I eat enough now, but I've been really trying to concentrate on staying with a low cal/low fat diet and getting to the gym every day. I think I do plenty of cardio.. an hour per day usually I would think is more than enough.

    What should I substitute in for the microwaveable low fat meals? Ive thought about getting on success meals (www.sucessmeals.com) but their a bit expensive.

    I'm cutting through the entire summer.

    I'm no longer obese, but I'm still not ready to bulk up.
