Need some advice......

The back story:

Im 28, 5'9", 260lbs & I haven't been in a gym since my sophmore/junior year in high school. I live a fairly active life style between work and a 19 month old at home but I'm also well aware that I don't have the best eating habits. I would like to drop 50-60lbs to get to a weight that would be good for me, at 260 I don't appear extremly over weight as I have a very stocky build with broad shoulders.

Now I know to drop the fat that I need to have a high cardio workout to begin with. I would like some help/advice as to a good workout routine along with some possible supplements to begin with. I will be back in the gym on 6/2 for the first time in twelve years and I'm really unsure of where to start. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

are you going to be looking more at actual scale pounds or waist sizes? I say it because if you go to the gym and start lifting, you won't drop the scale number as fast as you want since you'll be adding muscle. However, the pants sizes will decrease pretty quick. If you just wanna lean out, hit the treadmill or bike for 45 minutes every morning before breakfast. Eat after you shower, shave etc. since your body is in a high metabolic state from the workout and the lack of food during sleep.

The only supplement you need is maybe joint support and a good multi vitamin.

Oh and start tracking your calories and macro nutrients. You're eating too much at one time. Probably eating a huge lunch and a huge dinner really late (like before bed)

Word. If you don't eat right you will get shitty results even running 5mi a day.

I'm not as concerned about dropping the lbs. on the scale as I am about toning up. I would still like to drop 30 lbs. or so regardless.

As for eating right, what should I shoot for on total calorie intake daily? As it stands right now I will only be able to make it to the gym 3 days a week for 60-90mins at a whack.
