I know I can't do a good leg workout in 30 minutes so I split legs into 2 days. This is what I am trying atm. Since my cancer (5 years ago) I don't heal so quick and I get tired easily.Its frustrating and I want to do much more but I feel the need to be practical and I am still enjoying the rewards. I've just got to be clever about it. Eat a meal before you workout things will be better.
I commend you for fighting back and thank you for your help.

Welcome back and good luck.
Thanks for the welcome back. Yes, I have some specific questions:
1) Should I be counting calories now or should I just eliminate junk and watch portion size?
2) I have done well in the past with only 3-4 meals a day (including PWO); is this OK or do I have to move to 6-7 meals?
3) Do I need to start off with twice daily workout with cardio AM and weights PM or can I just start off with once a day and rotate?
4) What workout do you recommend at this time? By this I am referring to the split, rep range, etc.
