Well I need to go the other direction and loose weight. I'm 5'11 and 220lbs :(. I really can't take it anymore, I think I need to loose at least 30lbs.
Diet: I've just now transitioned into this diet and I don't find it hard anymore. I have eliminated dairy, eggs, and soda. Usually whole grains, some white rice but only with sushi. Sweet potatoes. Lots of cooked and uncooked vegetables. I like beans and lentils too. Lean beef and chicken/turkey. Fish, usually not fried. Snacking on pita chips and hummus. Also love avocados. I use a quality mustard instead of mayonnaise on sandwiches, although I like tuna salad so you need some mayo. Turkey burgers instead of hamburgers. Try to keep it simple.
Workout: I'm really just worried about cardio. Swimming, I find it a lot easier than jogging. I have some 15lb dumbells, not sure how to apply them though. Also want to start doing ab exercises.
