My name is Tyler. These past 2 1/2 months i’ve started a diet that put me from 165lbs, down to 144lbs (5"9 15 years old). Im happy i lost the weight, but it seems all for nothing since whenever i sit down i have 2 huge rolls of fat. I really want to get into bodybuilding and getting muscular, but this all seems so overwhelming. I dont know where to start. Everybody contradicts everybody else, i dont know whats real or fake anymore. Some people say “take this before and after your workout for amazing muscle gains and fat losses”, others say “dont eat anything pre and post workout, as this will spike insulin and put your body into a fat storing mode”.
I am just getting so sick and tired of having so much fat on my stomach and chest. I am sick of having to eat bland boring food with no flavor. I am worried about creating bad posture and looking like a freak. I am sick of being so tired and weak all the time. I feel like im going to pass out writing this. I just dont know what to do anymore. my workouts are poor due to lack of energy and strength, i have to end up working out on an empty stomach since im worried about eating and spiking my insulin. I just really really need help and motivation, a hand to pull me out of this 10 ft hole. What is okay and what is not okay? All i want, is like 8-9% body fat and those killer six pack abs. So my question is, how long will it take? What is okay to eat pre and post workouts and how long or when do i eat them?
