Anyways, running is just making me feel good, but I dont have anything else to try. What about going nuts on a punch bag like Captain America?

|If you guys have any good diet advice it would also be very welcome. I'd like some practical advice and concrete tips instead of some semi-scientific woo woo about nutrients - not trying to mock those of you with actual intelligence, but the theory is useless if I don't know what it means practically. For example, our household goes through about 2 kilos of pasta a week with me consuming about two thirds of it so recently we decided to cut half of it and replace it with potatoes and rice and make sure it's always whole grain pasta.|

|Just a question for the experts here: When you say "lifting weights" what do you mean exactly? That activity seems very broad to me.|

My whole diet consists of LOTS of pasta with minse meat, pork, fried chips, tuna and carrot sandwiches, chocolate, lots of water and coke, kebabs and the occasional pizza.

| I've started going to the gym 5 days a week, having started last Monday. I've lost over 10 pounds so far, and I've been making great improvements of my upper and lower body strength.|
I started out at 275 pounds last July, and I'm only at 246.7 right now because I've been doing my dieting on and off. I finally put my foot down last week and decided to follow my Weight Watchers a lot more closely by cutting out all sweets and eating plenty of fruits, grains and protein.

|I'm one of those "Ectomorphs" at 16 years old (almost 17). I started going gym on the last week of September 2012, basically count it as October. And since then, i've gained 7 kg (15.4lbs). Yes, i'm pretty toned at the moment but have also gained fat. I want to be massive though. When i started gym, i weighed at 53kg (116.84lbs) and now i am basically almost 60kg. Is that good considering i started in October, and do you think i will start to get big by this October although i'm going to train for 2 more years?|

|Guys, I do 100 press ups a day and about 30 sit ups a day, will this get me anywhere? I don't want to be massive but just keep in shape and slowly hopefully improve my six pack and arm muscles...is this a decent way of doing this?|

Make sure you drink it on a relatively empty stomach, otherwise you'll throw up all over the place.

Not really, you're only working out a small group of muscles and keep doing the same routine day after day. You can only really get proper six pack abs to show if you have low body fat percentage, possibly under 10%. Eat chicken broccoli, brown rice. The trifecta. Avoid saturated fats.
Don't worry about getting huge, you never will unless you take some sort of growth hormone. Do a 4 day body split, Google a calorie calculator, eat above maintenance a few hundred calories and you will notice gains after a few months.
I have gained 10 pounds over the past 6 months.
