My best advice is slow.
I'm 14 weeks into a major cut coming off an injury and time away from the gym and everybody from relatives to co workers are asking me how i did it. And I tell them bascially what I did is cut one or two bad things out of my diet a week and add in one or two good things it's slower than a crash diet but it's healthier and works.
For Cardio I started out with 10min walks then 15min then added in intervals etc.
SLow and Steady and you will see great progress that's attainable.
Working out concentrate on core exercises at first nothing fancy bench squat barbell curls pull ups etc.

read around, do a little research - everything you're asking for is already posted and then some.
If you're looking to gain mass, RenegadeRows has several great Bulking threads on here. Also, Sunclouds "Gaining Mass in a Nutshell" and "The Ectomorph Workout" are great for starters too.
If you're looking to lose some fat, there're a TON of threads covering everything you could ever wonder about on the subject over in the Weight-Loss Sub-forum.
So, go take a look around, find something that you like, and ask questions as you continue to do your own research.

Thanks for all the good responses everyone.
I really never did this to a real motivated aspect until recently.
I just feel it is time to add some tone and bulk
and get in shape before it's to late.
So far I am weeding out a lot of the junk I ate, Though really my weakness was soda and the occasionally extra cheese pizza.
I usually eat fairly healthy.
As for the excessive
Push ups: Hands at Diamond Inside towards chest
10 Rep. * 2 Sets
Push-Ups: Hands at shoulder length
10 Rep. * 2 Sets
Sit-ups: Standard Knees bent
25 Rep. * 2 Sets
Sit-ups: Legs out straight and raised
20 Rep. * 2 Sets
Crunches: No equipment
30~50 Depending on the day
Haven't started, I have no weights or equipment
Jogging: Slow and Steady Pace
1/4 ~ 1/2 mile
Diet: No Idea
Just eating healthy foods and avoiding bad carbohydrates and sugars. And drinking as much water as I can.
As for my current status
Weight: 171 (May be of a few points off)
Height: 6 Foot 0 Inches
anymore needed stats I can provide.
Well I hope this helps you or anyone trying to help.
