    -possible some rice (basmati, yasmine etc.....)
    Why are you going for white? Why not brown?

    Lentils are great man, i do 10 servings at a time and blend them with a bit of lime juice to give it that tangy kick, they are awesome!!!

    Brown Rice is very bland. Basmati rice tastes a lot better.
    IMO the difference is negligible as far as dieting goes and macros are slightly better.

    So today I hit my first bump but I passed. Something came up so hit the gym a little later than planned. Only managed 18 min HIIT PWO with the time I had but it killed me.

    Great shoulder and bis workout:
    DB Press
    DB Laterals
    Laterals w/ Cable
    Upright Row
    Shrugs

    1 arm preacher curl
    EZ Bar Curl

    Trainig on my own so threw in some rest-pause and some negatives on curls.

    Well quick update on plans for tomorrow...
    Saturdays are my off days. No Cardio/Training.
    And my cheat meal for my last meal...
    All additional fats will be dropped and carbs will be reduced to somewhat compensate.

    U shud look forward to your day off with a cheat meal... It is a small reward for making it through the week.

    U can drop all carbs on that cheat meal day if u feel up 4 it....


    After one week with no diet or training slips I bet u feel yourself becoming sharper.... Just don't slip out of line... Keep going

    I am looking forward to it. The reason I don't do cardio is I work 8-6 every Sat so
    Gives me somewhat of a break. Ill have my meal tonight and back to fasted cardio tomorrow.

    I am sharp. I just don't think about cheating now. Its becoming habit and each pauseaw a reward.

    WEEK 1 Review

    This week has been the best week of any diet I have tried. I stuck to everything, did not deviate once.

    Regarding the workouts: It was kind of a feel week. Not sure what weights to use and so on.
    I completed fasted cardio for 30 minutes 6 days. And done PWO HIIT cardio for 20 minutes 3 days....

    The diet was perfect. Did not cheat once... Except for a planned cheat meal for my last meal on Saturday night.

    Because the weight in week 1 is mostly water i will start taking pics and measurements this week. Also weigh in every second/third day.

    WEEK 2 Plan

    This week the diet will remain the same. It will be approx ~
    Protein - 248g
    Carbs - 147g
    Fats - 42
    Cals - 1940

    This will be my diet Mon-Friday and Sunday. Saturday carbs will be reduced and no additional fats due to cheat meal.

    The workout will be:
    Monday - 30min Am cardio / Chest and triceps / PWO HIIT 20 Min
    Tuesday - 30min Am Cardio / Back and rear delts / PWO HIIT 20 Min
    Wednesday - 30min Am cardio / legs
    Thursday - 30min Am cardio
    Friday - 30 min Am cardio / Delts and Biceps / PWO HIIT 20 min
    Sat - off
    Sun - 30min Am Cardio

    Thats the plan...

    Great start to week 2.

    Done 30min fasted cardio.

    Workout today was Chest/Triceps.
    Decline bench press
    Incline db press
    Cable fly
    Lying triceps extension
    Standing rope extension

    My triceps failed big time!

    Today I only managed 16min intervals pwo cardio.
    I physically couldn't breathe so I'm happy.

    Diet has been spot on today.
    Really think ive hit the correct frame of mind.

    A higher than usual drop off is to be expected in the first week..... Probably to do with the fact you are holding less glycogen and food in general...

    Looks about right tho bud....

    So day 8 down.
    I don't know if its easier or harder but I am enjoying it.
    As of yet I think ive felt hungry maybe twice which isn't so bad. I just keep reminding myself how much I want this.
    As base says its easy to keep a sharp knife sharp.

    Today I changed it up for my Fasted cardio.
    Went on a run for about 25 minutes but was harder than my usual fasted cardio.


    Workout Today - Back/Rear delts
    Straight Arm Cable Pulldowns with Rope
    Underhand Lat Pulldown
    Tbar Row
    Wide Grip Cable rows
    Hyper Extensions
    Reverse Flys with cable

    PWO Cardio = Disaster

    6 sets of intervals = 12 minutes
    1min 30s @ level7 keeping above 120rpm
    30s @ level 15 keeping above 180rpm

    I think there wasnt enough time between my fasted cardio and my pwo cardio. My legs gave up before i did

    All in all still a good day!

    Done 30min fasted cardio.

    I had planned to hit legs today and take tomorrow off but my legs are tight and weak from cycling so ill be taking today off and hitting legs tomorrow instead to get a better workout.

    Diet stays the same either way.

    I found that cycling as a form of cardio was quite hard on my legs.... Incline treadmill was much better for me personally.

    Currently using the elliptical tho, really like it...

    Good first week and, as Base says, 2lb a week after the first 2 weeks is the max you want to drop. I'd be happy with 1lb a week it's more likely to be a fat lb the leaner you get.

    As far as cycling as cardio goes, the only time I really use it is as a cool down for 15 mins immediately following a leg sessio or as fasted cardio the morning after legs but at a really low resistance.

    Mate, do you deadlift?

    i found cycling to be great cardio when doing mountain biking. it sometimes feels like HIIT, going all out in granny gear to get up a hill and then go down the other side to give legs a break then back at it! i rode on day until my both of quads cramped up on me, felt like i had daggers in my thighs!

    Cheers guys!
    Well I have a stationary bike so I jump out of bed and onto bike so it's easy.
    It has r resistance levels 1-8 and I use level 3 sometimes 4. Maybe I should drop to 2.

    Im just impatient now because im in the right mind frame and I know I'll do this.

    Ill review diet at end of this week depending on weight loss. If I lose desired amount it will stay as is for another week.

    Cheers for the support guys. If there anything you think I should add, drop or start let me know.

    Had legs today....
    Weights were up from last week but felt like my head wasnt with it today.

    Workout as follows:
    Leg Extensions
    Leg Press
    Squat
    Lying leg Curl
    Standing Calf Raise

    5 minute cool down on bike.

    Diet still 100%.

    I will be reviewing my diet and workouts this week and post them up here...

    I will reach my goal.
