Sorry about this post -I've posted before and I just continue to get flamed - I hope this one can be a better thread and actually help me. Please can I say that Please can you help me here if your reading this thread? I want to keep it clutter free so please don't throw it off the rails - I'm really trying to be serious here.
Well I'm off the V-Diet and I am more than happy with the results I have achieved. I am 5'4'' and stand around 162lbs. I'm far from the greatest body comp on here, but I am very happy compared to what it used to be (and hence this post!). My V-Diet log didn't get much attention, however probably due to lack of photos - I plan on posting the Before against the After, and I'm sure most will see the difference (well I can!) but I want more!!
In general I have always eat 'healthily' just perhaps the wrong type of healthily, i.e; too much carbs, too much quanitity etc - I'm not one for Sodas/Sweets/Take Away/Greasy fried food.
I would really like to find out how many calories I need to be consuming on non-training and training days - as well as what the best training plan for me is.
My goals are at present:
1) To remove body fat
2) To get a little bigger, leaner
I know (reading from many articles) that you can't in this case hit 'two birds with one stone' - so I am planning to tackle the number one first, which is to remove body fat. After reading articles I've read that I need to lift HEAVY, to "give the muscle a reason to stay there".
My only difficulty is finding the right training program for me. I'm not sure whether to do weights, or weights and cardio. Im more than fully prepared to go to any lengths, I am just in serious need of help right now.
So my problems are:
1) What weight training program?
2) (If) Cardio, what type of carido works best, running? bike? how long? intensity?
I've also read "No amount of training can out-train a poor diet", which I agree with of course, so I think I need changes made to my frequency and what is in my meals. (i.e; carbs/protein/fat)
As an idea thus far, based on my budget for a typical day I have come up with;
Breakfast = 3 Eggs (Scrambled) + 1 Toast
Snack = Fruit
Lunch = 3 Eggs + 1 Toast
Snack = Fruit
Dinner = 1 Chicken Breasts with Vegetables
How does that look? PLEASE no flaming, please give advice - just I cant afford to be purchasing big massive steaks etc, at the moment anyway (please dont say attempt when I've got more $$/££).
Any help put into this thread would be HUGELY appriciated, it really would. And I would be grateful for yourself in gigivng me information to transform my body.
