gaining weight/muscle

I've been thinking about working out and stuff...because I'm rediculously skinny.

Anyway, I'm 6'4", 165 lbs. I'm looking to bulk up a bit. I'm looking for advice on how to go about this. I need to get on a good diet (I'm a vegeterian, so it's hard to get protien). And I need help getting a workout plan.

How long will it take to start showing some muscle and looking a little better? I'm not good at long term commitments, so I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Cool...That gives me some ideas of what I need to do. I went to the gym at school and made an appointment with a trainer there, so he should be able to help me out.

Thanks for the advice guys.

Hello... that's almost like telling someone to stop being American or to stop making music. Vegetarianism is a part of our identity, for some of us anyway.

You need to educate yourself if you think vegetarianism is unhealthy in any way.
I was just going to ignore the comment, but thanks. I'll never stop being a vegetarian, especially not for something as superficial as gaining weight.

No no, he said he had trouble getting protein being a vegetarian. I was only pointing out an obvious way he could gain weight. Was more of an insult to eating junk rather then vegetables I think. Eat meat; gain muscle, fat, AND corroded arteries lol. I only wish I could be more of a vegetarian.

But seriously, if you don't eat balanced meals you will probably need suppliments. Whatever is lacking.
Ok, it just seemed a little insulting with the first comment. Just one of those internet misunderstandings I guess.

youre limiting yourself by being a vegetarian. meat is good for you :)
Really, I don't care how good it is for you. I have a religious and moral obligation not to eat meat. Most vegetarians are not vegetarians to be healthy.
