    2lbs in a week is perfect for you right now. More than that and it's likely you'll be losing LBM not gaining it.

    Do you think? I guess I was just a little impatient. So would you suggest sticking with my IF diet @2500cals in a 50/30/20 split?

    Mrs just said she found a bigger house for rent that has a basement. She said I could have the whole basement, which means I could get a bike and running machine at home, plus start a home gym!! It's a few months off though.

    I'm still contemplating running 600mg/wk test-Prop over Xmas. Now that I have a former grip on AI and PCT. I know I wouldn't be getting that bloated face and water retention of my previous courses.

    We definitely have an improvement but you are not ready to do a cycle IMHO.

    Keep doing what you are doing mate.

    It's good going that man! From my experience weightloss isn't a consistent thing. Some weeks you'll drop more than previous weeks. Your current diet is working for you so I'd be reluctant to change it. As long as your getting healthy fats (that work along side weightloss) and not going over your cals I'd stick with what you've got.

    As for the cycle, what are you wanting to gain from it? Any possible gains you could squeeze out of it would be minimal at best. Cutting cycles are best for lower BF% ppl wanting to protect their lbm, and bulking cycles need a solid diet, or at least calorie excess diets. I mentioned why I thought it was a poor plan, just offering advice from my personal experience/view.

    I was just thinking that with my current diet. It would be a good idea to out some lean gains on and protect my LBM.

    I do pay heed to your warnings though. It's just the child in me wanting it now.

    Day 22:


    Just heading over to the local wholesaler to pick up 25lbs of chicken! Decided that tomorrow's refeed is going to be a TGI Fridays! Amazing!

    Getting bored of my menu, think I'm going to have to start experimenting this week!

    Can't beat wholesale chicken, I buy 10kg at a time. Just a endless chore trimming the fat off it. Miles better tho than the supermarket crap.

    The stuff I buy is 30 for 10kg. And it's really good quality, it needs no trimming. I bought the cheaper pack last time, and ended up trimming every bloody breast! Lol.

    I'm back from TGI's. my god I haven't eaten a meal that big in a very long time!!
    Started with the sesame chicken, and had shrimp, chicken + fries for main. I had to order a pint of water to help lubricate the second half of my meal.
    Laid in bed now, feeling like a beached whale!

    Day 24:

    Feeling like I have a lot more energy today. Although I'm really hungry lol. Noticed that my 'small' jeans fit really well on the waist now. Tried on an XXL top at the weekend and it felt huge, so I had to pick up an XL! That's a good step too.

    Clothes are great for highlighting any change. Just a costly thing when you shrink and your clothes don't fit any more. I've had to put new holes in my belts so my jeans stay up. Lol

    The refeed's done its job then if you appetite is up.

    Just finished chest at the gym! It was a really good session. I tried something that I had read about before, but was reminded of today. And that's the technique of 4 second negative and 2 second contraction. I'll tell ya what, I've never tried it before but boy'o'boy you can feel that working. I was getting some funny looks because I was using much lighter weights than usual! I left my ego at the door though, so who cares!
    Cardio, did 50 minutes on the bike at moderate tempo. I was aiming for 60, but my arse was so numb I had to stop!

    ***milky, I know what you mean there brother. I was wearing 42" waist a few years ago. Recently it's been 38/40. I'm currently wearing a 36", but they're a little tight on the leg!

    Haha, you know how girls are. She's a messy one.
    Thanks buddy, so you reckon the CrossTrainer over the bikes, is there a reason for that, or do they just burn more calories?

    Just that, they burn more calories. As does a treadmill. It is, of course, all relative. Assuming you work equally hard on each bit of kit.

    Thanks buddy! I really appreciate the support! Fingers crossed, I'm not looking to be on the cover of FHM, but ~15% bf would be good, especially for my height and build. It'll make me look massive!

    Ha. you say that now, i'll remind you when your aiming for 225lbs and 8% BF.

    My target when I decided to lose weight was 92kg (from 115kg) down to 87kg and still going, but aiming for loads more lbm when my BF get lower. It's an addictive slippery slope. :-)

    Absolutely use it man. Do some intervals on it. Warm up, then 39 secs as hard as you can and rest completely for 30secs. Repeat 5-10 times then move on to another bit of kit or stay on and go moderate (if you can take the discomfort).

    Day 26:

    Real good back session, lifting 190kg today, a new PB for me!
    Went to fill up my bottle and got caught by one of the gym instructors, spent 45minutes talking and then had no time for cardio.

    Just had a 4egg omelette and a tin of tuna! Yum!

    I tend not to mention much t the gym guys, all seen to know whats better for you to do, but every gym guy has a different view and they seem offended if you don't follow what they say. (Maybe just my gym)

    Yup 190kg Deadlift. I did my usual of working up. 60kg, 100kg, 130kg and 160kg. But I thought I'd try for the 190kg!
    Nothing really. Just a chat, he said he wants to go bodybuilder next year, said there's a competition he's gonna enter etc.

    Day 27:

    Stood at the train station, drinking my black coffee and that bloody bakery is taunting me again. Every day when I order my coffee, he offers me pastries and cookies and sweets and sandwiches... I'm sure he's trying to trick me!

    Few hours of Uni then I'll head over to the gym for a cardio session. Think I'll do as SteM suggested and try the elliptical.

    Can't get over this craving for macaroni cheese! Just fed my son (he's 18months) and the baby meal tonight was Mac'n'cheese. I wanted to steal it from him!
    Mrs is stuffing down all the leftover sweets from Halloween and there is cheesecake in the fridge. Life is teasing me this week!

    Used most of my carbs at lunch, so tonight is 2 chicken breasts, seasoned. Mmmm!
