Hey guys, I'm Skyler (Skye) and I guess I'm pretty new here. Never been on a diet before now and never needed to be until recently.
An injury has kept me very limited for the last year and it has only been recently that I've been allowed to start training again. Since I am not
familiar to anything in the world of diet and nutrition I thought I'd look here for help so...any information regarding topics I post is greatly
So my situation first...as I said. I used to train hardcore for Parkour in the woods. Slipped off a branch one day and it did a number on my body,
and that was the end of it. I've been recovered with a few problems but nothing that should stop me from training. In fact, I suspect half my
problems are attributed to my weight gain. I was always 155ish at this time last year and never had issues. Then my injury came and I stopped
being active entirely and my poor nutrition took effect. Right now I am 213 (starting drinking more water and walking and lost almost 10lbs). But
I really need to get down in weight before I can train for Parkour again.
I'm working my way up into running and my summer job (painting houses) will keep me plenty active. I guess where I need help most is nutrition. I
cannot cook so any diet/food recommendations for best fat burn/fulfillment would be great. Also, any exercises that help burn fat aside from running
would be fine too. I'm open to any suggestions here. I'm 19 y.o. female, 5'8, currently 213 looking to get down to 150ish. Losing
fat and building some muscle in the process. No previous dieting or any medical problems that I'm aware of (except headaches/chest restriction
that my doc attributes to my weight). I'd like to get this weight off asap (at least 40lbs in the next 3 mo. if possible). Its ambitious but I want
to train again and I'm off to college then too so I need confidence. I'm committed to a lifestyle change if people can tell me how as I'm sure once
I lose it I can keep it off because of my age and training. Yet I still wonder, is this possible? Am I on the right track?
Kinda long...but didn't want to miss anything. Again, any advice in any area is appreciated. I'm willing to help out anyone in any way I can too. Thanks in advance!
