I went so far as to try and start a beginner's routine at a gym with one of their trainers and he got frustrated and told me to just give up.

    Eat more protein and fix your sleep schedule. Get off sugar and stay away from drugs. You're tired because you're eating crap food your body has no use for and can't get any energy from.

      not that anon but I have a fantastic diet, a great sleep schedule (because neet lol), no job so no stress, and am also bone tired.

      OP, exercise and sleep objectively do help most people, this is all true. But it's not a silver bullet for everything. It could be something medical for all you know if you haven't things tested, like low testosterone or thyroid problems.

      >know I am depressed because I’m out of shape
      >don’t have the motivation to cook all the food required for protein upkeep

      >know I am depressed because I have no friends or relationships
      >too sad and ashamed about not having these things to bother trying to meet people when they’ll see how alone and autistic I am

      >know I am depressed because I have a pathetic job
      >too depressed to have ambition to get a good job and even if I knew what I wanted to do, depression has destroyed my self esteem so I don’t even see the point in trying since I’ll fail it like I’ve failed everything in my life and my depression would radiate in any job interview too

      Let me ducking die already

      You listed three complaints.
      For the first one, protein powder removes the need for most protein acquisition if you can afford it. Canned tuna is also good and easy, no cooking required.
      Things like eggs and liver, or even frying a steak take all of 5 minutes. I don't know your motivation / energy levels exactly, but 5 min may be doable for you.

      >can't help on friendships

      For the self esteem thing, your mileage will vary wildly but spirituality helped me. It inverted things from "hating myself" to "hating the world but I'm okay".

        See a doctor and get a blood test then. You might be deficient in something. Try multivitamins.

      Not joking here but you have severe depression and probably catatonic. You need help. It may take a few years but you'll get there and you'll lose the weight along the way when you change your lifestyle and diet gradually. Good luck my homie.

      I cry sometimes while working out. People think I'm insane, but I go anyways.

    Baby steps.
    Set aside a half hour every day for walking. While you're doing that, try to make sure you eat one healthy meal per day with vegetables and protein.

    After you're comfortable doing that, expand your walking to one hour a day and see how you deal with two healthy meals. From there, transition so that every other day you exercise instead of walk. Once you're comfortable with that, then your walk days will begin with 5 minutes of walking, then jogging, then walking the rest of the time.

    You will find that you have way more energy after that and you can begin to push yourself in whichever direction you want to explore.

      Baby steps

      Literally baby steps, it's no different than fatties who think they can't diet
      >REEE I'm SO HUNGRY REEEE
      No shit you do things shocking to your body your body feels shock.
      No shit you stress yourself beyond your limits you feel the stress daily.

      Thirty minute walk every day, every single day.
      Drink more water, take a multivitamin, get a protein powder and take it every day.
      Every time you feel depressed, drink some water. Every time you feel tired get up and just stretch and move around a little.

      It takes three weeks Anon, three weeks before changes in lifestyle begin to reflect in our day to day lives and the likely-hood of you failing those three weeks in a lifestyle change directly correlates with the improbability of how vast the change is.

      You can have big goals, you can move a fricking mountain.
      No one just moves a mountain though, they start with reasonable goals. I'm going to move this brick, that boulder, that car, that elephant.
      You set reasonable goals and you keep moving forward.

    If you feel too slow and sluggish, do fast exercises? Jumping, sprinting, throwing medicine balls, that kinda stuff.

    Go to the gym and do the basics. One day you only do bench and one day you only do squats. Nothing fancy and not more than 30min. 5x5.

    Find something fun and enjoyable for you. You don't have to go to the gym and lift weights to be fit. Try cycling, swimming, calisthenics... Just try them all and eventually you will fall in love with one.

    The only thing you need is daily growth. That's the overarching secret to life itself. 2 minutes of exercise a day. Doesn't matter what, just do it. Explosive running, a short walk, doesn't matter. Up the minutes once you feel more comfortable. Shit, do 1 minute of exercise if 2 minutes is too much. As long as you're doing it daily and keeping up with it.
    Re-evaluate your diet, as well as your habits. Get a physical and do bloodwork.
    If you're all healthy, your issues likely lie in routine and in the mind over anything else.

    You probably made excuses the entire time, and half-assed/complained the entire work-out. Even if the trainer was just a 1 in a 1,000,000 hothead, who hates money, there are other trainers that will take you on.

    OP you need to think of things in terms of momentum when it comes to health and fitness. The hardest part usually is starting. Taking the first steps. Going to the gym the first few times. Learning those first few things. Once you get past that, everything just gets easier all around.

    If you feel like fricking shit just start with small goals that make everything else easier. For the next two weeks just get your diet and your nutrition sorted out and you will have more energy, you will think more clearly, and you will be happier, even if only by a small amount.

    Once you get your diet sorted out, you will be able to make better choices because your brain will be working more efficiently, and it takes a week or two for this to start having a large effect.

    ANY amount of progress is good progress, because its like trying to move a car that wont start because the engine wont turn on. It wont budge at first, but once you push it and the wheel starts to roll, it takes less effort to get it moving forward and gets easier and easier. Thats exactly how it is when you feel like trash and want to change it.

    I have ADHD and lifting is one of the very few things that I can actually maintain long term as a focus. It's less about short term motivation and more about long term habit forming. Once you get into the swing of it, you will just start to do it out of habit. Besides things like alcohol, lifting is the only thing that quiets my brain down. Give it a chance, and stick with it. Physical pain sucks, but mental pain is x100 worse in my opinion.

    Everything takes time, Anon. You won't notice much of a change for a while, especially if you're VERY out of shape. But at some point it begins and then it becomes faster.

    Just do it out of self-hate in the beginning.

    so just keep going. probably unhealthy overweight, sitting in a chair all day, no muscles, of course you're going to be exhausted, you gotta build up. after a few months you're going to get over the hill, start enjoying it and having days where you're doing too much.
