Tampa Terry will soon be here to help you.

There is a thread a little ways down started by TheBow titled, “Should I change my diet (a little long)”. That should give you a good starting point and maybe you can take a shot at running your own numbers! Of course as Thunder mentioned, TT will be a wealth of info.

Hey, there, EAS, and welcome to T-Mag. Congrats on the gym membership!!!

Honestly, as a newbie/beginner, I’d recommend that you keep it simple. Have fun, work out, clean up your diet a bit, and do a little cardio along the way. And while you’re doing that, take the opportunity to read everything you can get your hands on (or click a mouse on) here on the site. Read the forum and read the archived articles in the “Previous Issues” section on the left-hand side of your screen.
