    Default Probably should have posted here first.....but I didn't.

    I am good at screwing stuff up.

    Anyways, I'm Kirk

    I am not new to training, just getting back in to it.
    Purpose just to be in better shape and to live healthier.
    Tired of the yo-yo dieting, and getting short winded during minor activities.

    Lost 15+ this year by getting back on a meal plan and exercising. I am not in horrible shape, just not in good shape.

    Built myself a simple home gym with exercise bike, pull up/dip tower, 5 position bench and select tech dumbbells. Also have an exercise ball and plan on getting a step this week. That is about all the room will hold but it will be enough for my plans.

    As far as diet, went to 6 meals a day, usually cooking meals 1 and 5 and using supplements for meals 2,3,4 and 6. Right now, I am doing slightly lower carbs and about a 500 calorie deficit. Once I drop a little more weight, I will up both.

    I think you need a more simple goal...Why are you using "supps" for meals 2-4 and 6 also? Im confused by this....

    Because if I don't use supplements during the day, I will skip meals.
    I am a service tech and my time to eat during the day is in the truck between houses. (5-10 min)
    So I will take a couple bars and a premade shake.

    At night when it is time for #6, I am just not hungry and plus I don't feel like making anything.
    However, sometimes I will have some fruit and nuts instead, or maybe a little jerky.

    So far it is working for me, not saying there isn't something better but I actually like the supplements.

    Also, there is something else about me and my diet that makes supplements a better choice for me. I don't eat any vegetables (except for potatoes if you want to count those). I have tried, but I can't. I will start gagging to point of puking. I know there is no real supplement for real vegetables, but if you locked me in a cage and fed me only vegetables, I would starve to death.

    Vegetarians hate me.

    BTW, I like vegetarians......they taste good but vegans are a little too gamey for my liking.
