I am in terrible shape and live an unhealthy lifestyle and need to make some changes. I am 6'3 250 lbs 25 years old, and have put on 50-60 lbs since January after quitting cigarettes after being a smoker for 10 years. Most of this weight can be attributed to increase appetite (eating non healthy foods) and drinking way too much beer. I work on the internet so my physical activity through out the day is mostly sitting in a chair and clicking buttons plus any other physical activities I do (none, except swimming in the ocean everyday during summer). I haven't lifted consistently since 2004 so I really dont have any muscle mass, just a nice beer belly, some man boobs, and some stretch marks. I am tall though with a skinny frame, so I definately have that skinny fat look and would like to done with that.
Ideally I'd like to put on muscle mass for 3-4 months and then cut the excess fat and improve my cardiovascular health. I am pretty out of shape though and it has me concerned. I obviously plan to cut out the alcohol consumption to almost zero and work on putting together a solid bulking diet. But how would you ease into physical activity? What would your plan of action be for the first month? 6 months?
