Hi Jocelyn and welcome.

What do you usually eat - maybe we can offer some suggestions to improve.

Hey Jocelyn, welcome! As far as diet is concerned, I definitely recommend reading Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness. I'm about 1/3 the way through it now and have learned some great things! I'm a little overweight myself but have learned that the likely culprit is that i'm undereating. Second recommendation is to start a journal for your food that way you have a written history of what goes in your mouth (and when).

Best of luck with your fitness goals! See ya around the forum!
