Thanks a lot for your help , i think my problem with my other diet is i was maybe taking in too much carbs.Starting my diet today . WISH ME LUCK !! =) I am signed up for ballys so i should be able to find a protein shake there. One more question , I like exercising a lot. But how much is too much? I normally go every day for 2 hours at a time, 5 days a week. Is that ok? I do about 30 minutes on the bike every day also.too much?
