I'm a n00b, I accidentally found this forum while trying to find healthy eating plans.

I'm a nerd and I'm trying to get fit so I thought I should join.

I'm 25 and had been, until 3 months ago, a smoker. I started smoking at the age of 15 and despite my dad passing away of a rare form of cancer that started in his throat, I couldn't break the habit. I'm currently on Champix and although I know they are bad for me, smoking was worse. As as result of quitting smoking, mixed in with leaving my physically challenging job for a job in I.T, I've put on 12kgs.

I was always tiny, size 6 ... I don't know what that is in the US, maybe a 0 or 2 despite eating more than most people I know. Lots and lots of Junk food too. I don't want to go back to being that skinny, although I also don't want to end up having to wash myself with a rag on a stick. I just want to be healthy. I am sick of being so sick and run down all the time. So, I joined a gym and started a healthy eating plan.

I'm hoping these forums will help me, looking forward to meeting you all and hearing your stories.


Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth
