    I've been working out for years, but P90X has been the only program that helped me shed a lot of body fat. I highly recommend it, but im not going to lie it's hard, so you better be committed.

    I'd encourage you sit down with a trainer.

    The 2 biggest challenges that I see with people beginning exercising is lack of perserverance through times "they don't feel like it," or any other lame excuse (just as we do when we talk ourselves out of going up to a chick), and nutrition.

    To get through this use the 3 second rule as you do w/women. As soon as you begin thinking "it's too late, I'm just so tired I don't want to go" then GO!!!

    As far as eating healthy. It's 90% of what you eat. Cut your carbs, eat more grilled chix, a couple of salads a week, and don't eat until your full. I don't know how you were raised, but I was raised to finish my plate. That's the biggest mistake people make. Eat 1/2 or 3/4 and put it away. DO NOT eat until you are full.

    Hope that helps.

    I did Huge in a Hurry by Chad Waterbury and put on A LOT of muscle in a very short period of time. Follow his advice to the letter and you'll do well. On top of that, I would run 1-2 miles a day and ab work 6 days a week. I'll see if I can find the ab work video I got my exercises from. Second, you need to up your calorie intake (only by 300-500 more than you need to maintain your weight) and sleep a lot. You'll be tired lot of the time at first. There are lots of calculators online that will tell you based on height, weight and all that what you need to do to maintain your current weight. Make sure to eat lots of protein and listen to your body. If you're hurt, don't try and go lift unless you're sure that muscle group won't be affected.
