I agree. I've been involved with the bodybuilding culture for some time now, and I'm tellin ya, the serious bodybuilders are the most obsessed, anal, efficient people on the planet when it comes to health, fitness, and bodily appearance.
I've been a member of http://forums.bodybuilding.com
for over 3 years now, and I see transformations every day people would drop their jaw upon witnessing. Best source of info ever. Seriously. Give it a shot to learn some info. Just be sure to trust only the people with high post/rep counts, or any of the moderators, since there are quite a good amount of trolls around there (Most I've seen on any boards). Anyway, you know you're doing things right when Professional Natural bodybuilders are giving you advice w/ scientific backing. Layne Norton (username: str8flexed) and Derek Charlebois (u: Beast) come to mind as the premier experts on nutrition and weightlifting.
Anyway, you will find that just making small choices will go such a long way! I first started off by cutting out bits and pieces of my usual junk food intake. Then, I just cut off almost all processed foods. Immediately my body responded positively, trimming my waistline and most of all making me feel much better. I didn't feel so groggy all the time, a lot of my dryness problems went away (No doubt I had them before because of high sodium intake from shitty foods), and even without really watching my diet, my waistline was trimmed.
You know, this thread has inspired me to lean out a bit as well. I did not successfully complete my transformation, stopping short about a month or two of a six-pack. I recently saw Equilibrium, and man, Christian Bale had a pretty nice bod. Just seeing stuff like this every day is good motivation.
