That is very doable, just focus on the diet and do a basic beginner routine in the gym.

A person with thyroid issues that works out, stays in shape, and isn't using it as an excuse.

I wanna loose a little bit of minor flab and get a little bit in shape, very realistic goals I think.
A person who is honest and somewhat smart about it: I want to work out for a few weeks, lose a little flab, then I'm gonna fucking quit. Awesome (0). By the way, the advice already given is fine. At the most basic, just track your calories and bring your protein levels way up. Oh, cut back on the booze, too. Sorry.

Fuuma, to achieve your modest goals, you should:

1) Get a little bit stronger.
2) Eat a little bit healthier.

The first is easy for your body if you are coming off a long period of inactivity, but the easiest way involves barbell lifts. If you have no knowledge of those lifts, that does represent a hurdle. The previously linked Stronglifts is probably the best short and simple primer on how to get strong if you read it, lift it, reread it to see what you missed. If you can't do that or if the leap to barbell lifts is too daunting, pick up some random Men's Health bodyweight / dumbbell routine or get one elsewhere.

The second, focus on eating vegetables, meat, and limited fruit in small portion sizes.

Agree w/the above except for the small portion sizes. Meal frequency/portion size doesn't matter as long as macronutrient & overall calorie goals are being hit.

Taught a guy to squat barefoot yesterday... immediate improvement in his form and weight went up. Not hard as he was wearing unlaced Shox before

Is barefoot squatting a "thing"? I squat in Onitsuka Tigers (I think they are Mexico 66s), have been kind of level for a year as going higher hurts my knees a little.

You have not encountered this before? The idea that your lifting shoe should have an incompressible sole?

The first assists with the second with very little effort.

Have to get a second test later on to see if it really is an issue, so now that the first shock has dissipated it's not that big of a deal. My mother has hypothyroidism but I hope it's not hereditary.

Anyways, until the second bloodwork is done cannot say anything for sure. Worst case - prescription T4 (isn't that what all the bros mix with their clen cycles?)

Also, to fuuma, I apologize if I came off as douchey in my original poast. I just meant to state that you can definitely make a change in 7 wks, although probably not a very drastic one.

Yup- and also not a 1" heel to push you forward.

In the gym this morning, I watched a girl who appeared to be 5 foot tall girl and maybe 17 years old deadlifting my goal weight. Fuck me.

How much was it? I need to know before I can feel or about myself.

Then again, comparing myself to a 17 y/o girl is already automatic . haha.

UD2.0 having the effects it usually does.... fat coming off, strength up... hungry like hell by Thursday noon.

Started cleaning up the weekend meals rather completely and going no carb a day early on Sundays... pretty good does of keto breath Monday-Tuesday.

Nope... I will give it a whirl though, I'm pretty sure my Asics are compressible to some degree, but not much.

I guess

But if u are capped at ~1500kcals for the day, it's a little goofy to break that up into 6 ~250kcal meals, when 3 500kcal or 2 750kcal will get you the same effect w/way less headache + more satiety. I guess it's just a difference in approach, but I like to take the easy way if I can.

When is your carb-up - thursday or friday? I always found it pretty weird to split thursday in 'half'. No carb up to PWO and then all hell broke loose. Might have to jump on the diet myself pretty soon.
