Hi Tom

Big question, lots to say. First thing is to make sure you're eating properly, and that means not relying on supplements, but rather spending the money on a dietician and making sure you're eating healthy foods and in the right amounts. That's number 1

Second is training. i can't give you a programme over the internet like this, but I'd advise that you consult with a biokineticist and have them draw up a programme that you can follow. I don't know if you have access to a gym, but that's probably necessary, and so is the initial assessment of where you're starting, and then what you need to do.

So I'd say the most important thing you can do invest in expertise, and that means seeing a dietician, seeing a biokineticist and then going. If you take shortcuts and try to get generic advice, then you compromise your chances of success. So right upfront, speak to the best people and they'll supervise the journey.

Good luck
