I lost 5 lbs last week, as a payoff for avoiding things that have sugar as an ingredient - which it turns out is fcuking everything. Saw no results for the first couple of weeks, and we'll see how next week goes.

What was the outcome of this in the end Dath?

Also, I am doing a thing a bit like Greg did and thought I’d state it here so give me a bit of extra pressure to complete it.

12 week strict exercise and diet regime to try and get more strength, flexibility and all round tonedness.

Ahem.. . I'm glad you asked me that.

We decided that Mrs Thorn had won, because she PUT ON less weight than I did during the time frame.

Make a thread. If you don't complete the course, the thread will be there for ever more as a permanent reminder.

I won’t but only as there won’t be any real updates along the way other than food choices.
Just had a protein powder, almond milk, peanut butter, blueberry, Greek yoghurt and oat smoothie FYI.

Sounds interesting. Good luck sticking to it.

I think setting it as a 12wk thing is the best way. Long enough to see results but short enough that you can't see the end if you properly loathe the diet. You'll probably make good longer lasting habits too in terms of reducing carbs and raising fitness.

I, however, downloaded the 7 minute workout app you recommended ages ago and haven't opened it once.

Cheers, I think the toughest part will be the food planning and prep, the 'diet' as such is not a weight loss thing just a better balance and protein heavy. Had a curry last night forex that was delicious and massive enough that the lack of rice didn't matter. 3 days in and I'm amazed at how many carbs I've cut out without really missing them so hopefully that's a good sign for the 12weeks and after.

Open the app, it's good!

Having said that, the Huevos Rancheros I just cooked were incredible and well worth the 10 mins prep.

Want!

I do baked eggs fairly often as a light meal/lunch. They would probably fit in your regime nicely.

I've realised in the last few days that i've acquired a 'dad bod' and have decided to make wholesale changes, also, my achilles has caused me enough issues that I've not been able to run for a couple of months, so I assume losing weight will help that recover.

Target wise....12 weeks here too....I've entered the East Region Open Water Championships at Whitlingham near Norwich on the 21 July and going for the 3k swim, which as of today, would be the furthest I've ever gone, plus it'll be a fcuking freezing lake (no wetsuits allowed) as opposed to a bath like 20m pool I train in.

Currently 87kgs.....

Breakfast was a bagel with bbq sauce, egg, chicken, yoghurt and beef, but now back on poached eggs with spinach, avocado and a tiny tiny piece of chorizo for flavouring (I cut it into tiny pieces, cook and sprinkle over) so dropping the carb element.

I've now done three days of cooking up chicken thigs and making a salad with the other half of my breakfast avocado as a lunch, munching through such epic amounts of leaves does leave you not feeling hungry. Blueberries and an apple for snacking.

Breyer's Ice Cream last night - 350cals for an entire tub! but being a fat cnut I shared this with Mrs Dirt who, whilst eating her half (maybe less ;) the tub narrows...she wouldn't have noticed....rolled up her top and said, "will half a tub make my six pack disappear?"....hateful bitch....I'll shows her.

I also hit heaviest ever this year (nearly 14st) and decided to sort it out a bit. About 3 weeks of 'eating sensibly' (no junk and somewhat reduced carbs, no weekday alcohol) followed by a week of 16/8 intermittent fasting then a week of one meal a day (OMAD) saw me drop a stone in just under 5 weeks. And that still allowed a few blowouts and a bottle or 3 of wine at the weekends. Fell off the wagon big style over easter and put 3 or 4 lbs back on but have resumed OMAD and and back down to over a stone off and only 5 lbs off first target weight. Want to shift that over the next two weeks - seems doable.
