    As for myself I usually do 100 sit ups, 100 cruchces and 20 push ups a day but for the last two weeks I've done none.. haha.

    I run a few miles every other week also. It helps to relieve stress and thus make me feel better.

    And this is very bad dieting advise so please don't do it. I basically eat anything I like any time I like where ever I want.

    Dieting / weightloss will make you feel like you are suffering.

    Stick to a plan no matter what with active dieting and excersise.

    ^ imo, best tips ever.

    Do some sport maybe. Some running even.
    Sport is a fun, easy way to loose weight.

    Interesting thread.

    I've been working out for 5 weeks now and my god it feels great. I never really bothered with weights and all that stuff, it was all football (or soccer) for me in the past. So it was a bit difficult at the start because my left hand is soooo much weaker than my right hand (wonder why? Fellas know why ). So after two weeks of sweat and blood poring down my face i've finally gathered strength to do biceps/triceps exercise in the same intensity. And yes the results are already showing.

    A little tip for those who want to lose weight: do cardio and stay away from sugar and eat less. It's actually that simple. If you can run a lot already i suggest you doing some HIIT. Tabata method is probably the most known and one of the best methods. Sprint for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, 8 circuits (you are done in 4 minutes). You think it's easy? Try it and let me know what happens. Note: You see that thing you're trying to brush off your face? That would be the floor.
    Nothing is what it seems.

    Does anyone know of a diet that isn't expensive that will actually make me gain weight? I'm way too skinny as it is right now but no matter how much I eat or how much lack of exercise I get I still manage to stay thin.

    Don't know about the price but i have some meal plans, i'll post it when i find them.

    EDIT:

    Here are some examples:

    Day: 1

    Schedule: 11:00 am Snack 8:00 pm Snack
    6:00 am Breakfast 1:00 pm Mid Meal
    9:00 am Snack 5:00 pm Dinner
    Workout: Weight Resistance at 9:30 am

    6:00 am Breakfast

    1 1/4 cups Cottage cheese, light/low fat
    2 cups Bran cereal, all varieties
    1 cup Strawberries
    1 tsp Olive, Flax, Hemp or Salmon Oils

    9:00 am Snack

    28 grams Protein powder
    2 cups Strawberries
    2/3 tsp Olive, Flax, Hemp or Salmon Oils
    2/3 cup Oatmeal

    11:00 am Snack

    42 grams Protein powder
    2 cups Fruit juice

    1:00 pm Mid Meal

    2 oz Cheese, low or non fat
    3 oz Turkey breast, deli style
    2 slice Whole grain bread
    12 Peanuts
    2 tsp Mayonnaise

    5:00 pm Dinner

    4 oz Chicken breast, skinless
    1/3 cup Applesauce
    1/3 cup Fruit cocktail
    2/3 cup Rice
    1 1/3 tsp Olive, Flax, Hemp or Salmon Oils

    8:00 pm Snack

    2 oz Cheese, low or non fat
    2/3 cup Applesauce
    12 Peanuts

    Day 2:

    7:00 am Breakfast

    5 Eggs, whole
    1 cup Mushrooms
    1/2 cup Onions
    1 cup Jalapeno peppers
    1/2 cup Salsa
    3 cups Tomatoes
    1 tsp Olive, Flax, Hemp or Salmon Oils

    9:00 am Snack

    2 cups Yogurt, plain, low fat
    2 tbsp Almonds, slivered

    11:00 am Mid Meal

    4 oz Chicken breast, skinless
    2 slice Whole grain bread
    4 tsp Mayonnaise

    2:00 pm Snack

    21 grams Protein powder
    1 1/2 cups Yogurt, plain, low fat
    1 cup Peaches, canned
    1/3 cup Oatmeal

    5:00 pm Dinner

    4 oz Chicken breast, skinless
    1/2 cup Mushrooms
    1/2 cup Onions
    1 cup Tomatoes
    1 1/3 tsp Olive, Flax, Hemp or Salmon Oils
    2/3 cup Rice

    8:00 pm Snack

    7 grams Protein powder
    1 cup Milk, low fat (1%)
    1/2 cup Peaches, canned
    2/3 tsp Olive, Flax, Hemp or Salmon Oils

    etc

    So if you want to gain weight you have to eat 6 times/day. This is all high protein food, incorporate that with interval/resistance traning and cardio and you'll get the best results.

    You don't have to eat 6x/day to gain weight, nor does it effect your metabolism. Calories in - Calories out = change in weight.

    I lost 35 pounds since last November, pretty much just riding my bike 6 miles a day (mainly since its 3 miles to work, and 3 miles back) and watching what i eat. Plus it helps that I'm riding my bike in 90 degree weather, so I sweat a LOT which helps contribute.

    Yes but what i showed is quality food. If you want to build muscle you need to eat protein. But if you want to gain weight (fat and muscle), well, eat everything.

    True, but it's hard to eat all of the calories necessary to put on lean mass in just three meals.You need to eat a lot of good protein and clean food to build muscle (unless you're some genetic freak), and spacing out meals makes it much easier.

    @Jay: Congratulations on the weight loss! I know how tough losing weight is, so keep up the good work.

    I never really eat breakfast, I've never really been able to stomach food so early in the morning. That can't be a good thing, maybe I should start, haha. Do all of you guys eat breakfast?

    I eat my first meal ~1 PM. Funny thing is that breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal. Well, not in our book.

    Somtimes, actually meal times vary for me every day. And I don't really eat breakfast food much for breakfast.. but a lot of time I eat bacon and eggs for dinner.. haha. But really me, I'm totally random in what I eat.

    I used to be the same way, but I eat breakfast every morning now. I think it gives me more energy to start the day.

    @Jesse: Breakfast for dinner is awesome. It's filling, easy to cook, and less time consuming than making a traditional dinner.

    Why wouldn't you make breakfast? Honestly, even it's just a bowl of cereal, or a quick toasted sandwich, it's pretty beneficial for you to start off the day with. Besides, you just woke up, why would you want to do anything at all, when eating doesn't require much work?
