Diet/Training help.

Hello, I'm about 5'10, 300 lbs. It's long since been time for me to get into shape, but I'm going to need some help.

First, I have no idea what I should eat, when I should eat it, or how much I should eat. I'm also considering going Vegan, for heart health and what not, good choice?

As far as my workout gear goes, I have 3 items. Running shoes, A heavy bag, and a Bench. Once again, I have no idea about what I should be doing, when, how often, etc.

I'd like to have a full body workout schedule, or something of the like, that covers everything, you know.

I wrestled for 4 year in School, pre High School. Once I get down to about 250 I'd like to start really training, Kickboxing/Boxing is my main interest.

Anyway, any help would be appreciated guys.

Dont go vegan. IMHO since the human body is so adept at processing meat, and since (certain) meat is good for you it is a complete waste. The main thing to losing weight is diet at cardio, so clean up your diet and put on those running shoes. Do a search for HIIT, and look in to body weight circuits. By cleaning up your diet I mean don't drink any soda or nonsense like that, no more sweets. clean carbs, and lean meat, LOTS of veggies, fruit, all the basics, nothing to complex. Best of luck

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

mmk i was 5'11 203 lbs last year at the age of 14 its been about 6 months and i went from 203 to 149lbs. what i did is i got into a weight training program in school, the program we used is bigger, faster, stronger atheletic program look it up if you like. the program includes alot of strength training, plyometrics, and cardio stuff i like it alot.

you dont have to do this, im just giving you wat worked for me look around on like google if u dont feel this is the right workout/diet for u
hope this helped you a little bit

Then on top of that i did the abs diet which is you eat 6 meals a day and this is how it works:
8am eat break fast <-- this is ur most important meal
10am eat a small portion snack
12pm eat lunch
3pmish eat a small portion snack
6pm eat dinner
then maybe a small portion snack in a hour or so
but after 8 dont eat, if u feel hungry drink water
all of this speeds up your metabolism

You can actually do alot with wat you have believe it or not look up some plyometrics there pretty rough first couple days but i think it will get the job done if you do that with the abs diet. Plyometrics are like box jumps, explosion jumps, ect... you might not like it the first couple days but just keep reminding your self wat your working hard for. You could also maybe every other day go hit the bag for 15-20 mins just keep your hands up chin down. Then maybe bench every 4 days. also you should run every morning and keep increasing how far you run every couple days. You should start seeing bigggg results if you stick to this after about a month.
