Hi, need some help coming up with a diet for myself. I will eat anything and everything at any time. If I'm awake at 4am and hungry I will make 2 bagels with cream cheese... then go to sleep. Lots of bad habits. I don't drink enough water either.

I need some serious help guys. I'm upto 200lbs for the first time in my life. I'm close to 30% bf which is nuts. What is the best way for me to proceed now. I joined the gym today as well. Money is no object. I am will to eat any foods, take any supliments as long as they are from a legit store and nothing illegal

Where to begin??? Diet? workout?

These are my eating stats for the last two weeks

Total: 2112
grams cals %total
Fat: 92 831 40%
Sat: 41 365 18%
Poly: 11 100 5%
Mono: 33 298 14%
Carbs: 159 630 30%
Fiber:1 0 0%
Protein:156 625 30%
Alcohol:0 0 0%

I never realized how high my carbs were and how low my protien is. Please let me know where to start so that I may get started asap. Thanks all

I do drink booze , I just haven't in the last two weeks.

PS the carbs are actually a little higher than this, in the last few days I've been eating carbs at night but wasn't marking it down. Hopefully this is enough to get some solid advice

Sorry forgot, my goal is to put on muscle and to lose fat. If I had to pick one over the other, I would like to get rid of the fat :)

Did you gain or lose any weight while eating the above macros? And go ahead and add in the extra food you ate at night...

whats up with all of the numbers?

Do you weight train, what kind of cardio do you do if any at all

You have said you have bad habits, sort out your diet and you will lose bodyfat

post up your current days eating and stop worrying about numbers so much

Too much number crunching there mate. I doubt you are 30% BF @ 200lbs unless you are a dwarf.

Drop the habits, adopt a good, regular meal intake, introduce some physical training and monitor results. Don't starve yourself, don't train too hard/too often. Easy :)
