    Current Goal: Lose ~20lbs, Get back in shape. Over the past 18 months I have gotten married, moved, taken a new job, bought a house and a few other things and in that time failed to exercise or eat right at all. Now I need to make up for that,

    Starting Stats: (9/3/08)
    Weight: 210lbs (original 205 in here was a guess)
    Height 5' 10"
    Age: 24
    BF%: ?

    Current Stats: (9/3/08)
    Weight: 205lbs
    Height 5' 10"
    Age: 24
    BF%: ?

    Note: I will be rolling things into my routines one at a time because when I try to fix my diet, exercise, supps, etc all at once I always quit. The things I want to improve/start are:
    * Get back into the habit of planning all meals and cooking dinner (and not the quick bake at home pizza type shit)
    * Reestablish a consistent workout routine
    * Establish a committed supplement routine
    * Begin forcing my diet to 7 habits compliance
    * Increase workout times/intensities

    Note 2: Feel Free to throw in your comments, critiques, verbal assaults, questions, etc. The more people I know are reading this, the more motivated I am to stick with it.

    Current Diet, Workout Routine, & Supplements

    Diet Plan: 7 habits of effective nutrition. I will aim to eat ~ every 3 hours, with a protein and a veggie at every meal and a veggie also at every meal.
    Processed carbs, will be reserved for the post workout meal only. I will not be counting calories or anything at this time but might later

    Workout Plan: Currently Full Body Lifting 2x per week, plan to add cardio in as feasible. May switch to Never Gymless Routines instead

    Supplements:
    Metabadrine (way expired): 5mg synephrine, 20mg ephedrine, 200mg caffeine...
    Fish Oil: Kirklands brand enteric encoated
    x-lean: Androsteniol, 7-beta-hydroxy-dhea
    zappetite: OEA, hoodia, jojoba extract, lotus extract...

    Nice work pal, keep it up. I am old and shit goes to hell awful quick. Not to mention doing shit that isn't immediately fun takes a backseat on the priority list sometimes. The rewards of getting your shit together are fun though, and that's what I remind myself of when I don't want to be doing cardio or doing reps. As you know, slowly building up the work is the way to go - in the very least so you don't get discouraged and quit or postpone your effort all together, IMO.

    That was my problem before, I would jump in too hard and have to take a week off, so I never developed a routine.

    If you want to go down the book route, Lyle McDonald is probably the most respected diet researcher among hardcore fitness enthusiasts and BBers in the world. I've just read some of his articles online, but it's very impressive and comprehensive. Check out his site:

    I took some 'before' pictures after I got back from Europe. I don't even like to look at them, much less share them with anyone else.
