I'm back. My last dietary goal failed. I didn't persue it very far, but I found it almost impossible to keep it up. Now I have no choice.
See the old threads:
Here is a picture of me. Not recent, but still pretty accurate:
I don't have much to say other than this has to work this time. I can't go above 300 pounds. Period.
I've already started dieting.
You'll find my recent inspiration from here:

This guy is not too much unlike me. He weighed about 300 lbs. He is a few years older than me (25, I think). He used a slightly modified Body For Life routine as well as additional exercise, and lost 100 lbs in one year.
I plan to loose the same amount of weight, only faster. And be more lean afterwards, too. And I know with your help and guidance, I can do it.
There's not much else to say. I am going to build a low-calorie cutting diet as well as work out 3 times a week on the WBB routine, and alternate that with cardio of some sort. The specifics I am developing now with my friend and hopefully with your input.
I now have some protein shakes and am about to start using some kind of appetite suppressant. I am going to cut myself down to *ONE* unhealthy meal a week. I am going to move to ABSOLUTELY NO COKES, DIETCOKES, OR ICED TEA.
I plan on having 6 meals a day, one or two of them being shakes, one being some sort of protien bar, and the rest being chicken, egg wites, oatmeal, or whatever other substituies I can think of.
I'm sorry to throw so much undedited information at you. This is what I need:
1. Suggestions for a caloric daily intake. I weigh just under 300 pounds. I am 6'5.
2. Suggestions for healthy meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I like chicken, tuna fish, lean meats (I always eat the leanest red meat I can find). Any good suggestions for breakfast?
3. Any modifications to the WBB routine? What kind of cardio should I do? I heard something about HIIP or something like that?
4. Any words of insipration or sound advice go a long way with me. Some of the smallest hints make me realize things I didn't know before.
Overall the difference between now and before: I weigh more now, I plan to use appetite suppresants, I plan to use protein shakes and bars, I have a good idea of what I can and can't eat.
Thanks a bunch. I know I can always count on you all.
