    Cheat day is Monday or Tuesday! I'm in Hampshire buddy. Basingstoke doesn't have anywhere I know of for real good Macaroni cheese. Might have to make my own.
    'A cook' - is that a restaurant or a chain?

    Ah, why did I think Kent? Cook sells upmarket frozen ready meals. Depends where in Hampshire you are as to whether or not you live near one. Definitely one in Romsey.

    Day 28:

    Had to wait in for another delivery this morning. So had 4 egg omelette and a protein shake for lunch.
    Hit the gym and smashed arms, great pump using a mix of volume and TUT. Then 50 mins on the elliptical. 600kcal burned. **** me did I get a sweat on. I trained in thick jogging bottoms, vest and a hoody. I could almost wring my hoody out, it was that wet!!

    Digsy - see above. I'm actually loving the elliptical. First ~10 mins were hardest whilst my legs warmed up. Next 40mins was cake!

    Day 30:

    It's been a month! I've dropped a jean size. Getting told regularly I look slimmer. And got my best ever Deadlift. Busy busy busy!!

    Making a big ass chicken curry today, which I'll leave cooking until tonight. Breakfast is still an hour away, but 4-egg omelette is going to be amazing!

    Any suggestions for spicing up omelettes? I've cut cheese/milk out. So I've typically been throwing a can of tuna into it. But it's a little dry sometimes!

    No training today either. Tomorrow is chest day and the elliptical!

    I use to add a little cinnamon and thyme to my omelets, but don't anymore. If I have them these days I mix in oxo, lamb or vegetable. Gives a bit of depth to the flavour. I've found I use oxo on veg aswel just to juzz it up a little.

    Good job on a month well spent buddy!!

    Oxo cubes, why didnt I think of that! Good shout there buddy.

    Thank you for the support this month, I'm pretty sure without keeping this log, or feedback and support from the people helping in this thread, I probably would of got waylaid and fallen off the wagon.

    Wtf is a peanut butter cup ? I'm thinking it has peanut butter in it , so at least it has some valuable macros in it.

    No no! Today was a cheat day. I felt bad after the PB cup so I moved my cheatday forward by 1 day. I'll just delay next cheat day by an extra day. How many times can I use 'day' in a paragraph?!?

    I got back from the gym and the mrs had bought cake and heated up the left overs from the curry I made. Figured I'd keep her sweet and have it. I managed 30mjns cardio after a good chest session. So all in all it's been good. I'm noticing fat loss on my chest, there is clearly a 'dip' forming between my 'pecs'. It used to kinda run flat as I had fat there. The bad gym scales put me at ~244lbs and that was this evening. I'll jump on the proper scales again next week to see how they rate me.

    You have no idea. These aren't overly great. Home made ones with crunchy peanut butter are better. Or better yet, ice cream with scoops of PB and chocolate sauce. *runs to kitchen*

    Training is staying the same, including the 45-60mins cardio 4x a week.

    This is now week zero.


    Weight: 244lbs (evening weight)
    Stomach BF%: 14mm.

    Chest: 46" +1/8
    Waist: 42" +1/

    OK dude, it's your log so do as you please, if I were you Iwould use this thread to ask any questions or ponder over any thoughts you may have, you have a fair few decent guys following you so there's no much point in opening a new thread for each one. In time you may want to continue this thread full time if you eventually run an AAS cycle.

    That's the plan! I'm going to run a cutting course @15%. I'm just going to reduce my updates, I'm sure you're all bored of daily updates that don't really include a lot. Instead I'll just do a weekly update that includes a chunk of data and changes.
    I'll include questions tho. I'm glad I have some good followers though, it's making this whole process easier!

    Added pictures to week: 0

    Went to the doctors this morning to get a blood panel done, so that's all booked in for the 20th. I should get results on 25th. Definitely feel and look slimmer. Been looking at the Freeze lipo and laser lipo for after Xmas. If I get down to 15%bf I'm going to treat myself and kill some fat cells.

    As from my understanding, once fat cells are made, they can be emptied, but not killed? However these lipo treatments kill the fat cell so you can lose more of that layer.

    Are you thinking about lipo ? What you say is correct, I have a stubborn bit of fat around my lower abs that will just not budge, well a three grand trip to the surgeon might sort it, haha, I wouldn't tell anybody though in case they called me a girl.

    It's not proper liposuction. It's a non invasive version. You turn up, have a 30min session where you just wear this belt, then leave. Proper liposuction is expensive as hell.

    But you will need several sessions!

    You are right, you can't kill fat cells. Just shrink them or remove via proper lipo! You can, on the other hand, grow new fat cells if you fill the current ones up too much!

    As stem said, you do need several sessions.

    It's 50/session at my local gym. So I was curious about whether its just a gimmick for the average joe that doesn't really fancy dieting. Or if its the real deal and worth a look.

    If I continued to diet tho, my body wouldn't fill up the remaining fat cells, and so it wouldn't make more. Would it just mean I would carry fat in obscure places, until those cells were full?

    Exactly, this first month is done. I know now on a daily basis roughly what I'm eating without having to think about it. I am still using MyFitnessPal though. But Im making the right meal choices instinctively
    The new stage is hitting that damn 15% bf! I felt that daily updates were no longer needed

    Thanks Digsy!!

    Arms are feeling bigger, can see a little peak now on them, which I'll attribute to the loss of bodyfat!
    Had a really intense arm session yesterday, it felt like my biceps were going to burst!!!

    Was absolutely dropping with sweat after today's cardio! Felt good, I'm almost looking forward to the cardio more than my workouts now!

    I have started a thread regarding a cutting course starting in January.

    Many thanks buddy! I've been doing a fair amount, I'm a long way from considering myself a knowledgable person. There is just so much to learn! I haven't even begun to look at some compounds!
    The cutting course in Jan is almost 8 weeks away, that's loads of time to do more research and continue with this natural cut !
