Yeah definately quit smoking,
also try running on the days u dont train, or in the morning if u train at night, if u keep it up you'll be surprised how fast your cardio will improve

When you quit smoking you will probably gain weight, so I would make sure that you are pushing yourself even harder when you think that you need to sit. The really great fighters will train until they can't walk back to their car, but that's part of training.

You should definitely get back into lifting, but with your build I suggest focusing on cardio.

When you say you stopped lifting do you mean that you stopped lifting completely?

Lifting and strength training is really an important part of grappling, and I like to think that it's alot more important than the cardio, but that's not really true. If you're going to be training in BJJ, you should be getting alot strength training just from your training. Add a little bit of weight training on top of that, but focus mostly on cardio, which will help you lose fat and keep you toned.

ok for the record.. Muscle CAN NOt turn to fat major misconception.. basicly all that happened is your muscles got out of shape and cellular size decreased along with strength.. you still have the same amount of cells, no change there and you will be surprised how quickly they bounce back . Cardio will help I also suggest adding some weight training.. low weights high reps decent speed kinda like a cardio weight work out.. try adding ankle and wrist weights when you run maybe a weight belt not alot of weight just 2-5 pounds you'll notice a huge difference when your not wearing them after a work out.. will build up speed as well..

Muay thai vs Boxing

tough call, depends what u like basically,
if u just want to supplement groundwork i would say boxing, because, no matter wat anyone says, boxers have better hands than muay thai guys and u dont want to over complicate ur game.

However knees, elbows and the ability to at least defend kicks are all a necessary part of mma training. the other thing is muay thai does clinch work so if u prefer clinch take-downs (as apposed to shooting) then muay thai may fit your game easier.

like i said depends wat u like, maybe do both and see for yourself

if possible train in both if you can get it.. you'll have great hands with lots of options in feet knees and elbows
