Been a lurker for some time, but now's the time to get serious. I need some help, and I figured that with the wealth of knowledge around here, I might get some leads. So, here goes: As of now, I am a bit overweight. I have a regimen set up, and I am slowly getting to where I want to be. I am still shopping schools in the area (Phoenix), so I haven't done any serious training beside my workouts. What I am concerned about is what I should be eating. I know there are those from the low-carb world, and all the rest. I guess maybe I am looking for something more specific, towards what I am shooting for. I am doing a total-body regimen with kettlebells and cardio, and increasing in intensity along the way. I want to place my body in a state that can adapt to what I am about to put it through, I.E. mma training. Anyways, just wondering what you guys around here are eating. Moreso those that are losing weight, than those that are maintaining it I will get there though). I feel I might be just walking around in the dark with my diet as of now, I eat lots of fruit, drink a gang of water everyday (I work outside alot, buidling/property maintenance), and have cut fried foods, heavy calorie foods and such out. Anyways, and tips/directions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
