Looking back on the thread, I don't actually see LLL saying that he is fat - just out of condition. I think the fat thing evolved out of other posts. I guess you would first need to establish what goals you are trying to accomplish. If you are already an ideal weight or under weight but just out of cardiovascular and muscular shape, the suggestions would be different. Did some one say white castles? mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm microwaved beef-like-product goodness . . .
