Woah, this was a lot of helpful insight information. Give me a minute and I'll do a commentary on much of this as I can. I'm glad that someone sees this! Most people I've talked to where I live at say that you can only have a strong body through lifting weights, but I'm not going to throw my back out of whack (again, I'm just 100 lbs) just to attempt to have a fit body. I want to be able to have a strong body through exercising and dieting without having the need to almost kill myself in the process. I've recently noticed how subconscious I feel about my body and that I want to better it so that I can get rid of the subconscious and feel really good about myself. I am looking into these right now and will get back you on that when I've read more. Can you elaborate more on healthy fats? My mind's blown away since I've never heard of such a feat until today. So what are all of the foods that have transfats in them? I've been cutting back on my junk food consumption, but I'm afraid that I've been falling too short. Such as? That actually does sound delicious. I've never had a protein smoothie so I have no idea what to put in it and how much of it. (Does that make sense?) This is going to be my Achilles heel since I love bread, potatoes, rice, and spaghetti. And how does this ketogenic diet work? I have a feeling that this transformation process is going to be an odyssey for me. I'm going to do a bit of research and mix that into different pieces of advice several people have given me on here and see if that works out for me. I might have to experiment with a few different things to see what works for me and what doesn't. Thank you so much for your insight on this! Every one of you has been so kind and so helpful me and I really apperciate the gratitude.
