    Hey guys! So next week I fully intend to start doing my best to get fit and in shape - it's going to be hard because it's something I've never really done before but that's the point of this anyway right? Well, probably one of my biggest obstacles is the fact that I'm cooking for myself for the first time really after moving to a new place. I know diet is a big part of weight loss, so I want to take it seriously and don't want to ruin it trying to cook for myself for the first time either. Are there any good resources for recipes and such anyone could suggest that would help out or have any suggestions?

    Glad to hear you're starting your journey to fitness. Remember that you didn't wake up out of shape and overweight. It took many small decisions of eating un-healthy and choosing to sit on the couch watching TV or playing on the computer versus having a more active lifestyle. Now that you've made the decision, be aware that it will take time to achieve a higher level of fitness and your weight goal. So don't be discouraged....It's a fun journey.

    As for your question, there are many forum posting about this already. In the forum search box, type "eating clean". You'll get a lot of information, some of which is conflicting. But overall it's a good start.

    Well this is the new beginning on eating and living right

    There are hundreds of diets and meal plans you can search out and follow
    and that's up to you and your goals
    But there are some very import rules of the road for anyone who is serious about their health

    Kiss The fast food goodbye
    Yeah places like Mickey D's and Wendys say they have healthy food
    They don't and there is no reason to even go there

    No processed food
    That means fill your house with good healthy veges and fruit
    good lean meat
    and whole grain cereals and breads
    ..... If it's not gonna go bad in a week or two? It probaby isn't all that good for you

    Keep the EtOH to a bare Min

    and Fried foods are an almost Never as well

    Those rules should steer you in the right direction
