I'm new to this whole message board thing a friend reccomended it to me.
First let me introduce myself. I'm 28 I weigh 203 lbs and I'm 5"8, I used to be pretty skinny guy until I started working out at 21. At the time I weighed about130 lbs (Mainly because I ate once a day due to my job at the time).
I've never really taken any supplements, I'm not really a fan of em. I used to take whey protein but havent in a long time, I prefer to get all my protein from my diet naturally.
Once I started to work out and actually start eating I gained pretty quickly, then I kind of maxed out for a while at 190. Over the past year I've kind of lost my motivation due to being stuck at the same weight for so long and have been distracted just by other issues. I felt I maxed out and my workouts have been getting spread out over a 2 week period rather than one, and I'd skip a day or two here and there. Then a few weeks ago I got on the scale and it read 203. I couldn't belive it, so I checked on 3 different scales and all said over 200. I don't in anyway look fat. I know I really need to get my diet in check a little better though and was wondering if you guys could give me some tips. I see this site has tons of info I need to research and I will do that in coming days. As far as my goals now, I'd like to mantain my wieght at right around 200 lbs if possible but in the past I was looking for a bulkier look, now I just kind of want to go with a fitness look. So I understand I may need to loose a little weight. I've never really been big on cardio just weights, but I know thats a major part of it. So any help would be great. Thanks guys here's my diet right now, I know it has it's faults and thats why I'm here.
