I havent posted in a while and was just looking to see if i could get some help. I know i do not look like anyone on the front page of the site, but i would like to start losing weight. At one point 2 years ago i lost about 70ish lbs, and then went to college and put most of it back on but now it is more muscle. I go to the gym almost every day minus the past week because of work.
But all i really do at the gym is walk on the treadmill, elliptical or any other cardio machine. I have had shin splints from running so sometimes it gets really painful when i am on the treadmill.
The First time i lost weight i basically just threw together a diet plan basically consisting of cottage cheese, fruit, and grilled chicken and i stayed with it for about 6 months until i had to go to school and could not follow it. I also had a boxing trainer and we trained like 3-5 days a week.
I'm roughly 5'8", 220 maybe(havent weighed in a week or so) but i would like to lose a large chunk of my weight again. I felt so much better when i was thinner.
I have read a lot of the articles and i do not want to just drink shakes all day or some of the extreme ones. I was wondering if anyone knew of a diet plan designed for eating at a dining hall(all processed foods), and if they knew a beginners workout routine for a few days a week
