Default New! Ready to start my journey!

I'm new.
Hello, I'm starting on a journey to lose weight and bulk up.

My body space is haru66

This is my body space. 195 5'10 24% body fat. ( I was previously 245)

Breakfast, I eat oatmeal with a banana a spoonful of peanutbutter almonds walnuts flaxseed and wheat germ. (Not processed oats, steelcut oats.) I gulp down a bottle of water after.

( I take supplements like sterol, fishoil, l-carnitine, b-complex, vitamin d and C, green tea extract.)

Lunch- Probably a whole wheat turkey sandwich with two slices of turkey and two slices of cheese and lettuce with a bottle of water.

Dinner- Maybe a pita bread wrap with oven baked chicken light maiyonnaise a variety of green vegetables or just a simple oven baked chicken breast with brocolli and spring beans.

After 6:30, I don't eat anymore. If I feel peckish, I eat a fruit and drink water.

Right now I'm trying to lose weight so I go to the gym four days a week.

Monday: Back and biceps
Tuesday: Chest and triceps
Wedsndays: Shoulders
Thursdays: Legs
Friday saturday sunday rest. I also do 20-30 minutes of cardio but on my rest days when I don't go to the gym, I do insanity. I also have a bulging disc in my lower back so I can't do certain excersises. My friend suggested an hour of cardio so I might start doing that. Every friday I also have a cheat day but that's because my mother is jamaican and she doesn't believe on cooking fridays and saturdays. I'd like a feed back on what I should do or how I can improve myself. I'll be a constant regular on this site. Thank you

I'd also like a workout body that's in the same situation as me so we can motivate each other you know

I just started pyramiding up so I don't know. My biceps and back aren't sore from doing this so I don't know if I'm doing it right.

My first set is my lightest and my 3rd set is when i max out. My fourthset I do ten reps of my heaviest then my fifth set I go 5-10 pounds lighter then my first set and I start to do it until I hit failure

Thank you but right now it seems like i'm reaching a plauteau of weight loss. Not gonna lie (I've been cheating ) But starting tomorrow, I'm going back on my hard core diet but I'd like different lunch meals that I can make. ( I'm 17 with a basic knowledge of cooking) Same with a healthy low calorie dinner meal I can make.

There are quite a few of us who could help. Best place to start would be the nutrition articles. Learn how to figure your basic caloric needs. Lisa, I WILL, has also posted some great recipes. Check them out.

When I had my back surgery in 1996, my doc shared that 80% of folks walking around have some sort of bulge. Not all show symptoms. Depending on where it is and how bad, there is probably quite a bit you can do. I would also submit that, if you have not had it medically diagnosed, your symptoms could also be a muscular imbalance.

Dive in here, start a log and ask questions. I will say, up front, don't ask a question if you really don't want an answer or help. That just frustrates everyone.

First, I'd increase your protein intake. A little piece of chicken and a couple slices of turkey just isn't enough. Eat more meat.

Second, more work isn't better work; better work is better work. Check out some routines here for some good ideas on workout setup and good progression schemes. Working out more isn't always the answer.

Lastly, diet will have a better impact on weight loss than just increasing cardio. Use cardio for staying in good health and condition. Use diet to manipulate you body composition.
