New guy, be brutal...
I got out of the military about 10 years ago and haven't done any exercise more strenuous than jacking my car. When I was in, I worked out regularly, did PT with the platoon and ran religiously. I was a fit paratrooper.
Since I got out, I gained 75lbs and am a flabby tub of lard. 6 weeks ago I hurt myself trying to get my jeans buttoned.
Enough is enough. I cut my caloric intake by 2/3, my fat intake to <15gr a day and have been true to this change for the last 6 weeks. I haven't really begun to exercise except for walking which I do every day at lunch. I figured that if I could lose some of the weight first, then running wouldn't be such a painful experience.
Well, I haven't lost a single pound.
Any suggestions on where to start?
Breakfast is either fruit or a low-fat oatmeal bar.
Lunch is a lean-cuisne or a 2.5gr/300cal pita and fruit.
Dinner is a skinless chicken breast and wild rice or vegetables.
I have been drinking about 2 liters of water a day.
What am I doing wrong?
