As others have said, the first thing I said was OMG.
Honestly ~ Memorize the beginner stickies.
Read up on nutrition by Dr. John Berardi, his 7 tips are very helpful. Pay attention to all the nutrition articles.
You are basically a blank slat albeit lacking any muscle termed skinny fat ~ which is basically a nightmare to the avg lifter. It’s like WHAT?!
My tips :
Commit. If you can’t commit and be critical and work to change and grow ~ you won’t go anywhere.
Dedicate. decide you want this new lifestyle more then anything else - ie being lazy, starving yourself, avoiding moving pink dumb bells or even metallic ones.
Learn. Based on pic #1 I refuse to look anymore ~ you have a lot to learn.
- realize that learning is only the first step ~ If you are still at it a year from now or even 6 months from now.
anything you read, hear, or see will carry more subtle important meanings that you just can’t grasp ~ a lot of things in health and fitness take time, you need time to acquaint yourself with new ideas that are REAL. Not bogus media crap you see on the news or hear from the avg metro on the street.
Form & Technique - the reason you will learn this is emphasized is to lead people toward the proper steps to learn muscle stimulation - this is not the end all tho your avg beginner/intermediate may say otherwise.
- another reason why you may see this preached is because trainers and advice is given to encourage aid and assist not to hurt, debilitate, break, and impair.
So… without further ado
Eat often and make sure your getting 1-1.5 grams of protein per bodyweight. So if you weight 100 lbs. have between 100-150 grams of protein in a day. Divide it by 5-6 and thats how often your going to eat and how much protein you should be putting in. Since you basically have no muscle, make sure you take in simple and complex carbs with every protein meal ~ vegetables are good for you make sure you eat them too.
DO NOT VDIET.
