    So basically I want to get as lean as possible. I will be on the treadmill 20 mins a day.

    I've got this in mind for a typical day:

    Banana
    Tomato Soup
    Peanut Butter
    Can of tuna

    Metabolism works so that if you eat smaller portions more frequently, it speeds up and thus you burn more calories, right?

    If anyone could help me out with meal planning I would be very grateful. :yesway:

    Dude all of those sound delicious. In fact I just ate a monstrous apple, two bananas, a can of tuna and 4 peanut butter sandwiches.

    thanks for the dinner idea. :cheers:

    Pm me your email address, my crippledness might stop me from training but it won't stop me from helping others. I have a few routines I can send you as well as meal plans.

    Way ahead of you bro ;)

    I'm gonna get some unsalted cashews in my diet too, great snack.

    Does anyone know of any good lentil recipes? I can always Google it, but I'd prefer a recommendation.

    Just eat normally and exercise more, its sustainable, crash dieting isn't.

    Not crash dieting dude, but rather choosing a diet that will support my excersize plan.

    That's a crash diet, how many calories a day is that?

    It will depend. I won't be starving myself, nor depriving myself nutritionally, chances are I'll end up having a normal dinner most days.

    a lot of fruits, a lot of veg, a lot of water
    when you cook, less oil
    tuna / chicken are good idea, but you can eat everything else.

    less beer ( in know!!), less fizzy, less chocy / sweet things , less sauce

    a bit of exercise : you are in bath, so walk instead of taking the bus / driving (i know the hills are killing round there!!!)

    swimming is good, running will too harsh on your body in this weather

    Ralphy, sound advice my man!

    I've revised my plan, I'm now looking at this:

    Wake up - pint of water
    10 minute intense run
    Breakfast - high in protein and fibre - no coffee
    1 litre of cold water and green tea throughout the day
    Integrate spicy food, raw vegetables, more fruit and skimmed milk into my diet
    3 more 10 minute intervals of intense excersize
    Zero beer, zero chocolate, zero treats of any kind

    Stay away from milk, if you feel you need dat der calcium start supplimenting it. Milk while you're cutting = terrible idea :lol:

    be careful with the "zero" issue as it is quite hard to keep it this way. you are better off tapering it to maybe 1 beer on a friday and 1 beer on a saturday let's say.

    That way you still have a decent diet, do some exercise and still are able to enjoy the little things in life.

    you need more than 1 litre of water throughout the day though. Don't skip a meal at noon, even if it is something grassy (ie lettuce / carrott etc...) it will stop you feeling hungry around tea time...bad time to give up.

    Always have a banana or apple to hand around 4 / 5pm especially if you are working...

    I knew someone would pick up on that haha. I've had enough treats this winter, when I detox I do it properly. Fruit will replace sweet things and green tea will replace beer, I won't be missing anything :)

    good on you then!!!! what's the weather like in Bath these days? has the world finally collapse in the UK?? (snow of course!!)

    just a note on running early in the morning in a very fresh weather. Be careful because lungs do not deal with thermal shocks well, so avoid to go really really early for your running..ie : 0C outside but 20C inside, when you breathe in it is going to be cold.

    if you can stay outside for 5 minutes, walking about to allow your body and your lungs to get used to the cold air, and then go jogging.
