Protein/exercise/cal: Adequate protein in diet, a structured exercise program 4 strength, & adequate caloric in take. Join a health club, c an at-c who can tailor a program 4 ur needs & abilities. Do 1 on 1 4 a while until u feel confident u can do on ur own. A partner or going 2 semi private groups of 5-6 is very helpful. U make friends and keeps u going as scheduled like 3 days/wk.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
