Diet and Workout advice

I've decided to get back into the gym and start working out again. Would love to add size but at this point it isn't a priority. Would like to tone up, increase strength as well as improve my cardiovascular health.

5' 8"
120 soaking wet

Current diet: None whatsoever, nothing regular anyway. I am ALWAYS on the go with work and school. Need portable solutions, things that wouldn't necessarily need refrigeration.


Current supplements: 1 a day mens health multi vitamin, B-Complex, Garlic 2000 mg (helps to ward off sickness and helps with cardiovascular health), Glucosamine Chondroitin (joint issues)

Would like to obtain a steady energy level through the day, also is there anything that helps improve mental awarenes, does ginko really work?

I'm on this shit called jet fuel (giving it a try) and 7 keto and that shit keeps me awake from 7am to about 8pm without yawning once. It's more of a weight loss thing (caffiene helps with weight loss) so I probably wouldn't suggest that with how small you are...

Just eat a bunch. Ravioli, peanut butter sammiches and whatnot are good and you don't have to refridgerate or heat either of them as long as you can stand cold ravioli.

Serious question - does that garlic shit make your breath smell? I've always wondered

make food in the morning that you can eat through the day. jerky, mixed nuts, sandwiches, protein/meal replacement shakes/bars.

No, it is odorless, well so to speak. If you want to try it out, buy the GEL caps, I made the mistake of buying the powder type pills once. couldn't even get the damn thing near my mouth. I try to stay away from a bunch of peanut butter, my cousin who is on permanent dialasys said it is hard on your kidneys. I had a kidney stone once, so I do everything I can to prevent kidney trouble.

Thumbs up try this

yeah just like tha man said you need to EAT ! Protein , milk thistle (for your kidneys) and omega oil . get some Glutamine and good carbs in and some good fats , for you i would start out with 6 egg whites in the morning to jump start the day and eat at least 120 to 150 grams of protein a day with allot of water ..you can gain weight this way ..but at oyur own risk , make sure you get checked by your doctor taking a high protein diet , im not a pro but this is what works for me ..i have bene doing this for 6 months now and i have gained 18.5 lbs of muscle ...some people can gain more but i cheat every now and then , my intake of protein is like 250 grams to 300 grams a day so its twice what you need ....if only i was dedicated to this diet id be a BEAST ...im 5 10 and 290 i bench 405 on max days 315 on a regular so im not a small guy either LOL ...good luck !

p.s tip to make protein get absorbed ...take streight (N.O) and no caffeine ..

I'd be happy putting on 10-15 pounds of lean mass. I am starting my workout routine this week, we will see how well I stick to that first
