I have been quite inactive in terms of exercise for quite a while and thus was looking to become fitter. I am not FAT, I'm just a tiny bit overweight. I wanted to ask for some guidance in terms of nutrition and exercises for me to get a body like this.


A friend of mine said he will give me the Insanity DVD's if I want them, he bought it but couldn't do more than a week. Do you think it is possible for me to get the above body in the space of two years if I do Insanity at home for the next 2-3 months and then sign up to a gym?

Wow, a year!? How much time must be spent daily (If Nutrition is good) to achieve that look in that time-frame?

My advice is to try to go to a gym three times per week and the results will come. I think you don't need any nutrition to lose weight

I cannot go to the gym right now, that's why I planned on doing Insanity at home for the next few weeks - until summer at least.

By nutrition I also meant what foods I should eat what foods I shouldn't. I currently cannot live without chocolate - trying to cut that down gradually. I eat a lot of fish/chicken but very little salad/ vegetarian food but I plan on becoming mostly vegetarian (If that's a thing) in the near future - is that okay for bodybuilding?

The average gym-goer is not going to achieve anywhere near this in a year

Listen to this guy. You can learn the basic from his channel.

Perfect body = workout + nutrition.

But it is achievable if he puts the work in..

The guy in the photo isn't that great anyway. Heavy effects on the image. I'd call him toned.

Regardless of how long it takes you to get your goals the main aim is constant progression.

I'd say it is 75% eating right and 25% lifting if you are lifting 5 times a week and eating wrong you are essentially doing nothing. Get your eating right and then Lift Lift Lift and you will become a hench.

I am inclined to agree with this.

However I think there is a lot of bad information on nutrition out there, particularly on how much protein is needed. I think a lot of this information is manipulated slightly for business purposes (like selling protein shakes etc)

OP

Hit around 1 - 1.6g of protein per KG of bodyweight you have every day. Make sure you get a good amount of carbs too to fuel your workouts.

Good food + 8 hours sleep a night + compound movements = gains

(for a beginner anyway)

And this is coming from my experience btw, I am a beginner too.
