    Fat Blob joining up

    Hey everyone. Im a bit nervous posting here but I'd thought Id give it a shot.

    Currently im 24. I weigh 315 and im 6' tall. I seem to carry all my weight around my stomach. Almost looks like im a raging alcoholic or something.

    I plan to go on a diet really soon. Im going to go back on atkins because it has really worked for me in the past (until my wife convinced me to give up). I lost over 20 pounds on it.

    The reason I am coming here is because I also plan to get a membership at our local gym. I know VERY little about fitness,exercise, and weight training. Hopefully I can find some ppl to help me out around here so I can get started on the right track.

    Hey Glyph. First advise - don't bandy Atkins around here too much some here get hostile about that diet regime.

    Well now I am hijacking this thread. They will fill you head with lies. Steroids are good for a teenagers. *sarcasm* They will try hard to convince you that your test levels are already elevated...What do they know?? *sarcasm*

    Post you sup Q's in the sup forum. It is not nice to hijack threads.

    Atkins is just another "fad diet" in my opinion. Paying close attention to carbs, eating the right kinds of carbs, lowering them, etc. are all good methods, but cutting them out of your diet completely is just plain stupid.

    Of course you will lose weight if you eliminate carbs, but do you plan on living the rest of your life this way? I will assume the answer is no, so what will happen when you start eating carbs again?
