Hey, dont worry about supplements right now. Just try to get to the gym on a daily basis, and do cardio first, 30-40 minutes. If it gets boring, or its tough, do 20 until you build stamina.. you can jump on diferent machines, like i do, treadmill, recumbent bike, and stairmaster, for 40min together....then if you can go and get 1/2 hr of weight training in. Nothing fancy, just the basics. Im sure where ever you go they will have a starters program for you..

Dont worry about supplements right now, if anything just a multivitamin, drink lots of water, cut out your sugars (no sodas) and like i said, cardio should be your main concern.

Hope this helps. Cool

The two go hand in hand bro.  Adding lean body mass will help you burn more calories.  Burning calories will lead to a leaner physique.  Lift hard and eat a "clean" diet that has your calories below your daily calorie burn (a good guess would be 10-12 calories/pound).  Add 3-5 days of fat burning cardio (40 minutes) or HIIT cardio (20 minutes).

I dropped 40 lbs in 15 weeks and still added muscle.
