To mollies mama, We eat at 9-12-3-6- and sometimes 9-very little. 12 or 3 is usually a protein shake. But, at least eat some carbs, with every meal for energy. I would recomend a book called, "Sculpt your body perfect" I got mine thru Amazon. I also, for a begginner with weights, Is to do the muscle group , 2 counts up, 2 counts down , 3-4 sets.You feel the soreness the next day. Congrats on your weight loss! Big muscles first, then the next day smaller muscles groups. Hope this helps. I love weight training! Cherie

Hello all I am new. New to being a normal weight, new to this team! I lost 150 pounds through clean eating and have just added exercise into the mix.
I do my elliptical at home (4X a week), I dont have a gym but i dont think i need one either. I have some weights here, but not many. I am looking to gain muscle! (big surprise right LOL) Just added more protein into my diet but not sure it was the right move for me, but i was fighting terrible hunger at 11 and 3, so i chose to add more protein.
Would love thoughts on a healthy food plan for muscle gain (full guide weighed meals work best for me), and beginner strength moves.
So far i am doing strength exercises I found online and I can feel it in the moment! I finish the recommended reps (and can feel the burn), but never sore the next day! WTH! Wonder if i am doing something incorrect or if it is due to my 4.5 liters of water intake.
Just for today
