run/sweat workout eat high in protein low fat like fish chicken etc. i have always eaten a breakfast i love eggs and fruit in the morning no bacon. im 5'10 180 and i just dont eat sweets. it allows me to eat breads which i love. if you have a office job you have to work harder. i have an active job so i work out with weights 4 times a week and i run 2-3 miles 2 times a week and i have trained myself to eat certain foods that are good for me . dedication,determination. good luck you can do it

about how long does it take to build about 15lbs of muscle? im 18 years old and pretty skinny (5'10" and 140lbs). ive been in great shape due to good excercise and pretty healthy dieting, i just started a workout routine alternating around bench-pressing, dumbells, 80lb bag, and i work hard for exactly an hour and do a 30min run if i have time. ive been doing this for about 3 weeks now and was just wondering about when i would see major results. im also taking protein after every workout. i want to weigh 170lb by august, not sure if it is possible but i would love to hear some feedback.

A great healthy way to drop weight is to start eating 5 small meals a day and drink lots of water before meals. Drop soda out of your diet. Dont eat before you sleep at night. I was at 209 lbs and wanted to get down to 195 before the rugby season started. Im at 192 in about 2 months from this "diet"

Yep, you pretty much want to keep your metabolism running all day/night. Which is why you want to eat a lot of smaller portioned meals. Also, eat a small whole grain oatmeal snack before going to sleep. Theres a lot of myths that all of this will turn to fat beacuse your not burning it, blah blah blah. Not true, in fact it will keep your metabolism running through out the night so you don't store those fats and sugars.

I pretty much follow this same type of diet. I don't count my calories or anything, just drink water to speed up your metabolism, and use common sense. Don't eat it if it was never alive, or made out of something living.

170 by august isn't too much of a stretch. On workout days just eat more/consume more complex carbs, and proteins. It may be a while before you start seeing results though. If your 5'10'' and 140, chances are you don't have a very high percentage of fat. So for you to gain that 30lbs, your gonna need to eat everything healthy in sight, especially if you have a fast metabolism. I recommend using the "BSN True Mass" shakes to help you gain that weight.

You also have to keep track of your gain in strength, because you can't follow the same diet/exercises forever if your trying to bulk up. Eventually you're gonna need to up all of the values by about 15%.

Actually you will need to increase both. You need to increase the weight for obvious reasons, but once you start putting on more muscle mass, your muscles need more carbs to burn, and since you'll gain weight from this too, you'll need more calories, proteins, fats, etc. There was a really good article in the past tapout mag that goes over a lot of this. But in case you don't have it, heres a link to the article: http://www.tapoutmagazine.com/index.cfm?ac=NewsDetail&CM_Content_ID=26

I've found World's Healthiest Foods to be great for selecting what foods to eat. Also has some easy recipies and a consultant program to see what types of foods are missing in your diet.
