I dont know that there's any such thing as not being ready to join a gym. Go! Join! They will be able to evaluate your abilities and weaknesses far better than any folks over the internet can

They will also be able to help get you back into the shape you want to be in.

I agree with the above poster. You can join a gym right now and they would help you get into shape! As for nutrition, I would stay away from sweets such as soda and chocolate. Those are pretty much empty calories. If you are going to be working out or if you do join a gym, proteins will help.

Just make sure that you aren't eating more than you are working out. (Pretty much don't eat so much that you can't burn enough of it off when exercising)

The best way to burn fat is to do cardio vascular exercises such as running and swimming. Those two are extremely helpful when trying to burn fat.

I hope this helps and I hope more people pitch in some advice. Have fun and good luck!

No problem man, there are a lot of experienced people on this fight. You can ask me if you need help with anything and if I can't assist I can find you help.

We also have a great staff here! Just look for the Moderator or admin tags. They are extremely helpful!

If your dr. says it's OK and you don't have any joint problems, you should start walking and gradually add in jogging/running intervals as you are able. For example, run or jog for 1-3 min., then walk (like you're late to be somewhere and are hurrying) for 4-6 minutes. Your recovery periods should always be longer. If you're completely new to lifting, you might go to someone you know is experienced in that area and they can advise you, otherwise there's many, many
guys on this forum who lift regularly.

Food is now fuel. Try to make every calorie count, no more empty calories like HitorGetHit said. Unless you're an endurance athlete, there's no need to drink Gatorade or anything like that when you're working out. Drinking your calories is a terrible idea, unless it's milk.

Hey there.
I'm in the same boat.
Just asking the poster above, what is wrong with drinking your calories? Just out of curiosity.

I am not a guru on this or anything, but one problem is that if you are trying to burn calories while drinking gatorade and things like that, you are essentially replacing what you are burning off. Gatorade has a lot of sugar in it. I usually stick to just water when working out.

That is my 2 cents on it but I am very confident that Swp can give you a better answer than me.
