21 in January, 6.0ft 305lbs... Hey guys
lol i embarked on my 'journey' when i injured my knee really badly playing football and couldnt really do much excercise for nearly a year, add to that a very poor diet for the last 4 years without ever really paying attention to my weight or rather, not caring too much it hit me a few weeks ago that maybe i should "sort myself out".
I've lost 20lbs in 2.5 weeks with a diet consisting of a 'breakfast bar' (nutrigrain), no lunch (doubt many of you will think thats a good idea lol) and then dinner. I've also cut out all soft drinks and energy drinks (which i used to ONLY drink) and now drink water. I'm thinking that after a while this diet might backfire as i'm probably not gonna enough of something or other...
I have an elliptical trainer/cross trainer whatever theyre called and some weights, any ideas on some sort of routine? I've looked through the thread and i'm thinking i should do some weights before running, or walking as Rajah says it's better
Also, am i right in thinking it's easier to turn fat into muscle? As opposed to simply gaining muscle from nothing? If this is the case then should i be turning a substantial amount of fat into muscle and THEN losing weight and thus becoming a tank? Or would i just end up looking like a smaller, whiter, version of Mark Henry?
Thanks for any help, maybe i should take a 'before' picture?
