you've got a good, healthy framework there...

5-6 meals a high to keep your metabolism high (the body is pretty crap at efficiently digesting and converting anything about 500-600 cals per meal)..

I've been into fitness for a long time - on a serious level since 1999-2000, I hit rock bottom in 2011....

Weight in 2010 = 90 kg.
Weight in 2011 = 119kg
Todays weight = 83 kg, super healthy, very strong, full of stamina.

I can only speak about what has worked for me and everyone has their own voice on this, so I'm going to share a lot of info with you here and

I would personally skip the white bread in your subway (high gi - super fast, short term calorie burn rate - so a higher % of calories tend toward fat and plays havoc with insulin levels) , or better still, try and eliminate wheat products all together and hammer the brown rice/pasta/rice cakes instead. also consider very low dairy - trash the cow's milk and eliminate hard cheese if possible - yeah I know, that stuff is delicious. especially crumbly lancashire

but.... how bad do you want your goals?? and I find occasional cottage cheese is tasty great and great for protein


Look into BMR - Basal Metabolic Rate - or, put simply, the amount of calories a person needs to simply survive if they lay in bed doing nothing all day. working out my BMR has been key to determining my individual calorie needs, stripping fat and getting the body I am now happy with (BMR Calculator)


At the end of the day, if calories out > high quality calories in = win.

it all depends on how fast you want to cut, so work out what you as an individual need for your own weight loss goals, body type and activity level.

Generally, apart from nights/meals out, my diet is something like ;

40% carbs - low gi (no or very limited wheat products)
20% fats - almost exclusively mono / polys (peanut butter / palm oil)
40% protein - preferably from real chewable food, I've not take protein shakes for well over 8 months, I take branched chain aminos and occasionally, citrulline mallate - my chest strength has shot up recently.
I use pure electrolyte powder for maintaining salt balance during/after intense cardio/MA sessions (non-flavoured, zero calorie. its vile - so i add to juice)

I hope this provides some food for thought

peace and love

The body is pretty amazing at efficent digestion and 'converting'. In fact, I would say the human body is probably the single most complex, powerful and 'efficient' organism/machine/mass in the known universe.

Or the Samsung S5.


Know Thyself.

Have fun.

I have gained 9lb since Sunday.

I was actually at my lowest weight yet but after getting pissed for the Mayweather Maidana fight, I woke up & craved a kebab. Since then I have stuffed my face with horrible fucking rubbish.

I think I'm gunna pretty much fast for the next 2 days just drinking green tea with golden syrup & squeezy lemon, then get back to properly doing the intermittent fasting which was going so well.

It consists of -

Mixed salad & ham at 12 or 1pm. With salad cream.

Mixed salad with wholegrain pasta & grilled chicken at 6 or 7 pm. With salad cream & a touch of this new fiery hot coleslaw from Tesco.

Then I fast for around 18 hours only having green tea with golden syrup & lemon.

I'm not gunna be boozing until Froch vs Groves ll on the 31st so I won't be having any cheat meals or snacks until at least then.

Just a good quality whey protein I'd suggest mate, I personally like Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard.

Try a few different whey proteins over the coming months and see what works best for you.

Solgar Whey is the bollocks, but whey creates an insulin spike and tastes shit so personally I don't bother with it anymore.

My diet has been fucked for about 2 months. I kind of dabble in salad now.

Back on it tomorrow for attempt number 58 of my New Years resolution diet.

No need to cut calories. No need to watch calories. Eat what you want when you want. Just avoid carbs and processed shit.

If you don't believe me, less competition for me Look it up, ketosis and wheat belly. Try it yourself, and you won't have to diet ever again. You can have a cheat day once a week if you wish.

Watch this,

Picked myself out a nice new diet & it will be combined with a new fitness regime. Most of my days are going to go like this..

Between 9am & 10:30 I'll do 10 rounds of combinations on the punch bag that I put up in my spare room yesterday, yayyy. I'll get some weights in the coming weeks for toning up & strengthening. I'm also joining a new boxing gym in a few weeks.

Midday - 2 weetabix with semi-skimmed

2 to 3 pm - an orange, kiwifruit & quarter of a pineapple

6 to 7pm - pack of golden vegetable savoury rice (120g), half a pepper, spring onion, chopped ham or grilled chicken fillet

8pm - one banana

Lots of water, at least 2 litres a day. Going to buy a water purification jug.



Really excited about this new diet. I'll probably have a cheat session fortnightly where I'll go to the Chinese buffet & extensively stuff my face for a few hours.

EDIT: I weighed 12st 1lb this morning. Let's see how long it takes to get to 10st.

Also, I'll swap some of my fruit based dinner for other fruits week by week. For example watermelon in the place of pineapple.

I've been fucking around with diets for ages & boxed on & off for a year too until April.

In April I stopped because a dude got shot dead literally outside (but totally unrelated to) my club. My mate joked that the dead dude looked like me & wouldn't it be funny if I'd been plugged in a case of mistaken identity.

That freaked me out a little bit, because that kind of shit really happens, & it actually did a few weeks later can't remember where but it was in the UK.

Hence why I'm joining another club.

Boxing's my thing I'd prefer it over absolutely anything. Except for maybe something like, having to choose between boxing & being a porn star.

I was sparring 16 year old Irish champions who could have taken me apart but went easy on me.....I'm 29 now haha

I'll see how it goes at the new club. I can train every day now I've got a punch bag at home plus I'll invest in a pair of pads since I've also got a new training partner who lives in my building.

I really hope it's a decent club so that I can enter competitive events & win stuff.

Even a medal for the county championship would be awesome.
