We understand that taking your first step into the gym can be scary, but it doesn't have to be. We all start somewhere. There will be uphill battles you gotta face, but you will get there.
Start with simple goals, know them and find your "why". Why are you chasing this goal? Remember why you have set goals and never stop.
Calories are important. Calories are the most important part of the diet. The daily calorie intake depends on your health status and goals. Understand that age, weight, lifestyle affect and are necessary to create the ideal plan for you. You need a personalized meal plan based on your goal (weight loss, gain muscle...) and based on your food preferences.
You have to learn to walk before you can run. Find the kind of fitness routine would be best for you. If you are completely new to fitness, personal trainer gives you the most one-on-one attention. You can not reduce fat in one area by exercising that body part alone, just like you cannot accidentally bulk up.
Be patient and consistent, good things take time. And remember, fitness is a journey, not a destination.
