I don't see any "average Joe who actually has a life and can't spend countless hours upon hours at the gym but would like to lose a decent amount of weight" type of plan here? I don't want to get "ripped" or "shredded"...I just want to look normal. And what's with EVERY guy pic having a six-pack of abs. Technology has proven that your DNA plays a giant roll in obtaining great abs. It's genetic...not everybody can have the "six pack" look. Very misleading..

Seeing your abs is a function of loosing enough body fat. It's not misleading at all. You should take the diet tips and nutritional advice as motivation to work out. This website is intended for all who have goals to better them selves. If you want to be average then go ask an average guy at the gym for their plan. If you want to excel and better your self ask people who have made it a point to better them selves and to inspire others. I have a real job and I am not a trainer and I get it done there are no excuses but the ones you create

mojodojo. well I have NOT read most of these articles I have read and have been following Kris Gethin's 12 week transformation I work for DirecTV as an installer I work 60-70 hours in a 6 day work week I have a live in girlfriend with a 7 year old daughter at home. I know all too well that you cannot spend hours in gym with his plan I am there no more then 45 min a night. I'm 5'11" starting weight was 247 I'm in the third week of transformation and am already down to 226 as of last weigh in, if you set your mind to it and make no excuses and willing to set aside an hour a day to do work then these are all possible

I think craigcapurso and persing66 said it all. You have to set your mind to doing basically anything. I started by changing my diet because it was basically killing me, I have high cholesterol. Then I began working out at the gym and that was all she wrote. I have lost 15 pounds in about 4 weeks. I am not looking to get ripped, I just want to be a little more comfortable and not have as much body fat.

Ha, too funny. Sounds like someone needs to gain an understanding of work ethic, time management, goal setting and motivation. I'd consider myself an average joe who sits at a desk and makes sales calls all day for a living. Much of my 'freetime' is spent coaching high school hockey for 4 months out of the year; yet I've MADE the time to get/stay fit.
If you want to achieve something, you have to set a goal and have a plan. BB.com is giving you the plan here; along with some motivation of what the end result could be. If someone doesn't think they can achieve results like the pictures shown here, they're crazy. Genetics making you fat is an excuse and clearly indicates you're not uncomfortable enough with your appearance to make a change.

Mojodojo, I want to just encourage you to keep up with your health and personal goals. Although I don't agree with you regarding the "misleading" part of your statement, I can agree with the fact that life can limit your time in the gym. I've had to become very creative in my workouts but I'm still going to try.

I hope you do too.

It's called hard work @mojodojo. Nothing comes easy and every single person on this website who is ripped didn't come out of their mother's womb that way. If you don't want to work hard then get off this website. It's called Bodybuilding.com, not IWantToLookNormal.com. You only have to spend about 30-45 mins of hard training to help promote weight loss and look great. Your post is embarassing.

2 Ingredients for success: No excuses and hard work. Body transformation isn't an overnight process, I've been going at mine for nearly a year now and although it has been greatly successful there is still much left to accomplish before I am satisfied (assuming I can be lol).

Mojodojo. Its all possible with handwork and dedication. I never thought I would show abs. But I read and read and now have results. Remember its not all about the hours in the gym. You have to be dedicated.

Mojodojo,

I use to think like you, I probably weight like you and probably look like you. But I can tell you there is a fast way to loose weight, I lost 10 pounds in 14 days, how? Like this, I did a no- carb diet, atkins diet, but like I said no carbs for 10 days then after that complex low-carbs from veggies. People talk about atkins diet as dangerous cause of no carbs and high in colesterol and acids, beacuse you eat lots of meat, BS I did it for 10 days with lots of meat, and then went and get tests and everything came out perfect. My goal with thatbdiet was to loose some weight to go to gym and dont fatigue. 1 week after working out I lost 2 inches at the waist. So I think its possible if you commit to it and most important is believing in that you can.

I suggest you see a movie called Infinite Mind By Joe Dispenza its about law of atraction but more in a scientific way, almost at the end they show you tests they did with people using the mind only, and even tests of muscle increase.

I'll post some pics this week of 2 weeks agoand current.

Hey man hope you there to take that diet for 10 days only you will see it and feel it. Good luck

MOJODOJO, I suggest you stop making excuses and take a little responsibility. Maybe whining is in your genes.

Its easier to make excuses than to actually put all your heart and effort into something. Thats how champions are made. Dont say you can't do something and blame your DNA, thats foolish. If you believe you can achieve.

MOJODOJO:

I totally understand your perception in the good ol' "genetics has a lot to do with it." Fact is, training and nutrition "...has a lot to do with it." I say training because there is a difference between working out and training. You shouldn't come here to see advice on working out - which is is just going to the gym and throwing some weights around in the same manner every time and expecting to get positive results. You SHOULD come here if you want advice on training - which is setting reasonable goals for yourself and having the determination to follow a nutritional plan, along with a set training plan, to accomplish those goals. I guarantee you that if you do that you will see your six pack, and much more improvement. I am in the military and work 12 hours a day, six days a week, and still have time to follow a training and nutrition regimen which allows me to get the results I expect without spending countless hours in the gym. It's all about determination, reasonable goals, training regimen, and nutrition.

I take an average of 16 out of 18 credits a semester. there is always time to find to go to the gym. its only an hour or two of your day. the real work comes in from what you eat and what you do outside of the gym. so an hour a day isnt a lot. its all about time management.
