Weight Loss Suggestions?
I've been overweight my whole life and haven't ever done well with diets. I played 4 sports a year in high school and was very active but the weight continued to pile on. About a year ago I had back surgery for a pinched nerve so some activities might be off limits for me still.
I understand this won't be fast and am looking for lifestyle suggestions not just diets. I know the basics of course, less junk food more time in the gym, what I'm looking for is specifics.
Information like how many calories should I be taking in each day for healthy weight loss and what kinds of activities should I be supplementing my eating habits with? Suggestions for how to balance meals better and what types of things I should be getting in my diet as well as supplements I can take for even better results (I've heard fish oil tablets are very healthy). I grew up in a junk food family so food health has never been a subject I've been good at.
I have a goal of losing 100 pounds in one year, is that thinking too big? What would be more realistic and what kind of eating/exercise routine should I adopt to achieve it?
