  5. Starting to workout tomorrow and I am trying to put together a workout schedule tonight. Ready to get this started. Will be posting starting measurements in the morning. My starting Picture
  6. I workout maybe once or twice each week, like walk or zumba etc. I have lifted before but not for longer than a few weeks. I tried body for life a few years ago for a few weeks. I also tried p90x recently for a few weeks which was way too hard. I think I seen some minor progress with them both, probably more with body for life. My goals, well I want to look great and feel great. i dont want to be bulky but have some lean muscle. I guess i would be starting from scratch pretty much.
  7. hi there im 6'3" 258 lbs, 37 years old. I have been a vegetarian for about 10 months. I am ready to burn this fat off and add some muscle. I would consider myself a newbie. What kind of workout schedule would be best? exercises? and how much cardio etc? how many calories? protein? etc. any help would be appreciated..
  8. Hi, my name is Keith. I have been a vegetarian for almost a year now. I havnt lost much weight after the change. I guess I just switched to eating more chips etc. I am 37,6'3" 258 lbs, chubby. I am ready to get in shape. I would say I am a beginner and was curious how to set up a workout program for me. I want to add some muscle and get rid of this fat. Any help in setting up a program would be awesome. Like how much cardio etc, how many days lifting, stuff like that. Help with meals would be good too. I eat a lot of lentils and use a pea protein and rice protein powder, and take multi vitamin. Thanks

  15. i eat salads for lunch too. what about breakfast? For this morning i had rice chex, banana, rice milk, and sunflower kernels. i guess some other ideas are smoothies or pancakes. i guess i could use some menu ideas too.
  16. thanks for the idea, i just put some blue berries and bananas in the freezer this morning, i cant wait to try it. I also froze some grapes, i read that somewhere. I think its going to take some time for me to get used to this and in the habit of eating right. Is really going to pay off though.
