Re: Gym workout advice please!
Yea, I had sugar cravings.
I dealt with that by getting a protein from BSN called dessert. Not very big, but taste really good, and is healthy. 20g of protein, not a whole lot of calories or fats. Might look into it.
As for working out, depends a lot on what you like to do.
Out of curiosity, what type of gym do you go to?
Since I am a poor college student, I go to Planet fitness. $10 a month, but I get little more than weights and machines.
But if you have a membership to a nice gym, you might check to see if you have access to a PT or something like that. They can help you formulate a plan.
And what exactly is your goal?
Are you wanting to shed off weight? Build muscle? Do both? Because it is hard to do both at the same time. Unless you got God given genetics.
And are you going for the 6-pack abs? Because if you can't work out your abs, you won't get them.
I had this problem when I first started working. I checked my measurements, and I had 8% body fat. So I should have a 6 pack right? Nope. My abs weren't developed enough to be seen. Took me a while to develop them to the point where they were visible.
As for losing the last bit of weight:
Weight is just a number. Doesn't always mean a lot.
Hate to keep using myself as an example, but when I started, I stopped drinking so much soda and carbonated drinks. And I lost around 8 lbs. And I was trying to gain weight (being a hard gainer)
But it started showing. Took me forever to gain the weight back, but I looked better because my muscles started growing.
So don't focus only on your weight. Look at the whole picture, not just a little piece of it.
Hope I helped.
