    I'm ready to get my body right and was looking at some of the workout plans on this site. I'm not sure which I should use. My stats:

    6'2"
    210 lbs.
    38 inch waist

    My target weight is 190 lbs and my target waist size is 34 inches.

    Should I start with the strong and lean workout plan or should I go with the Healthy Weight-loss plan?

    Any good recommendations will be very helpful.

    Thanks.

    Get pictured.
    Get profiled.
    Get full measurements.
    Get a fat test.
    Get a cardio test.
    Get a CMP, free test, T3/T4 test, and fasting glocuse test.
    Eat 6 times a day, at least.
    Keep your calories up.
    Do resistance training.
    Do high intensity cardio training.
    Don't hang out with fat people.
    Stay consistent.
    Keep eating.
    Be patient.
    Be coachable.
    Do research.
    Get off your ass.

    Don't be so lazy, nor undisciplined.

    Start by getting your profile and pictures.

    Remember, anything worth doing should be worth doing well.

    Hey lushlife,

    Before you start any workout program, it would probably be a good idea to see a physician to make sure your body will be able to adjust alright to the additional stress you will be putting on it.

    From your initial post, you stated that you were interested in weight loss. That being said, starting with the Healthy Weight Loss Plan might be the best idea, if that is what your goal is.

    For the most part, people here on RJ are supportive of people who are starting to workout and eat healthier, so don't be discouraged if you get a negative response or two.

    Good luck!

    Why don't you start by taking group exercise classes. Group exercise classes are a good way to build confidence. The weight room can be a terrifying place for beginners. Really so can group x classes but it's a good start for learning fitness fundamentals.

    You need both...

    You need a workout that incorporates weight training to give you the muscle mass to burn off those excess pounds
    that's 3-4 days a week full body workout
    and because you want to shed some pounds
    you'll need anothe r2 days of cardio in there

    as far as diet goes
    lo fat
    hi protein
    mod complex carbs
    NO FAST FOOD and Nothing processed
