    well i've made some changes in my life 2 weeks ago and this time i am on a hellbent mission to improve my life mentally, physically, socially, and financially/academically.

    ive only been watching what i eat for under 2 weeks. i've cut out juices and sodas completely and most fatty fatty foods but i've been undereating i feel because i've been feeling way too weak at work daily now. i have to start a plan but i dont even understand the terms you guys use like bulking and cutting, let alone forming a dietary and exercise plan.

    anyways here are my starting pics of what will be the last time i ever want to see myself like this.

    im 6'1" and 245 lbs.

    so far i've been doing roughly 40 situps and 40 pushups a day and 30-45 minutes of run/walk.

    Bulking is eating a large amount of calories to make you gain weight and allowing your muscles to grow.

    Cutting is generally done after bulking, and is putting your body in a mild calorie defecit but working out just as hard to retain the muscles you have. You are cutting away the bodyfat you have.

    You really need to study the stickies and ask any questions you have. 30-45 minutes a day is a lot of cardio. You would be equally successful if you walked fast paced or slow jogged for 12-15 minutes when you wake up in the morning, assuming you have the correct diet. This would be best for fat burning and you would save the muscle.

    Your abs are muscles just like any other body part, and should only be worked out once or twice a week. Try doing 4 sets of 50 situps on Monday and Thursday. That is at least a start. You will not see your abs until you lose a lot of bodyfat.

    Study the stickies!

    (Unless you plan on lifting weights at least 2-3 times a week, you really won't be too happy with yourself and you will not see results nearly as fast. Read the "Want to lose weight? L I F T W E I G H T S" sticky.)

    It's a lifestyle, not a hobby. All or nothing.

    Get a real lifting routine. It is so much more effective than just cardio.

    one thing that i tell people over and over again when they are trying to lose weight is to not eat after about 7 pm.

    i'd be more concentrating on losing fat before bulking up with muscle, at your body fat percentage, muscle gains would be tough to notice under the fat, and the weight increase from the muscle gain might hurt your will to workout

    i do, i do, and i do. these are suggestions for someone starting out, alot of people startoff with these crazy workout schemes and only end up burning up within a few weeks. its hard to go from doing a few pushups everyday to throwing down a mad workout cycle.

    .

    For christopher's sake... it doesn't matter when you eat, so long as within any given 24hour period (usually measured til bed) your caloric intake is less than your caloric expenditure.

    Who are you and why are you giving bad advice? The reason that not eating after 7 works is because that stops you from having midnight snacks which may potentially be harmful, but if you have some willpower and eat a little less during the day so that you can have some before bed it is much better for you. Having no macronutrients for that long is not a good thing, protein before bed = teh win.

    so you are going to starve yourself for 12 hours until you wake up? That isnt good for you or your metabolism.
