Welll this has been a year comming now.
I got sick a while back had to go to hospital for a bit and then wasnt able to play sport or do any physical activities for about 16 months. Then once that 16months was up i was 17 and going out and having fun took priority over any physical sport. Now i am overweight and its come to the point i wanna do something about it.
I am an 18yrold male
6"5 Tall
Wanting to go to possibly 95kgs and get fit again.
I have started playing basketball again aswell as volleyball.
Cant seem to stop eating junk food though. Also my eating patterns are screwd up as ill get up like 10am just much on crap all day and then have dinner.

Has anyone got any tips for me ?

welcome to the forum!

I am also 18, i have been a member of this forum since just before I turned 17!

in terms of tips, the best advise i can give you is its a long process and can sometimes be tiring but the end result will be well worth it!

try to eat less junk food, drink less soft drink and juice and more water and get in some excercise.

see you round the forum!

Hi Vsbeast and welcome to the forum.

My first recommendation is to make sure that first meal is a good one and I know how boring this sounds but hi-fibre cereal, low fat milk and fruit is the best for you. Good quality carbs, some protein and good fats to fuel you right and kick start your metabolism.

Exercising is great but if you can lower your junk food intake that will go a long way to helping your weight loss.

You don't have to change everything at once either, do small changes to let your body get used to it and build up the habits you will need to maintain later.

I gave up junk food about 13 years ago. How I did it was just one thing at a time. So, first I cut out chips, then cake, then lollies, and so on. Just picked one food, then once I was able to live without that, started on another. Small changes :wink:

Only other thing I can suggest is meal planning. At the moment I have a sheet of paper where I write out what I am going to eat each day. It really helps. Just as long as you stick to what you have written lol.

Good luck :D
