    75% nutrition 25% exercise Don't diet change your eating habits. Fruits and veggies (lots of them). I have found the best way to get rid of the weight and build muscle is to try different things and find what works for you. What works for me may not be the same for you. You have to have the Courage and self-motivation to make the change that you want .

    Forget bodybuilding, pursue other more effective athletic activities like running, biking, swimming, playing soccer. There is too much unrealistic emphasis on diet and they expect you to live on nuts, twigs, and excessive protein in addition to anabolic steroids. Forget about it! Do athletic activities that you love instead.

    that advice is nonsensical and relies on stereotypes. There is nothing about the OP's weight training which requires the goofy diet or steriods. Pros use AAS but that is an entirely different matter.
    To op:
    Focus on weight loss because it is more difficult for fat people to synthesize muscle- can't explain here.

    The advice I am about to give is controversial but good. start with full body workouts 3x per week - 1 set per body part to start. Eat lots of protein (what is a lot?) and go easy on carbs but not phobically or in any extreme.

    Clean up your diet- water is your only liquid. modest sugar. No fast food. Just a sane diet without junk foods

    So much more to say but remarks are callibrated to a novice with a weight problem,

    Body building is exactly like public housing projects, both are costly abject failuresicon_razz.gif

    Rob is remarkably cute and lean for someone so bitter about bodybuilding and dieting.

    You wanna make a point that you can get away without it, right Rob?
