    So I went down the rabbit hole at RB last night and came across this same thread I made there 13 years ago. While it was good information at the time(and far better than most fitness professionals give out today) I still cringed hard AF at almost all of the advice I gave out. I guess that's the problem with evolving and improving.

    Either way I need to redeem myself so if you're trying to lose weight, get shredded, whatever- I'm literally one of the best in the world at what I do and I'll give away any and everything in this thread. Take advantage of it.

    What’s more important to staying in shape — working out or eating right? Obviously a mixture of both I assume. I just feel like a fat ass (Not actually one though) lately because I did most of my cardio by playing ball like 3-4 times a week, but now I can’t since it’s Rona szn. I’ve been going for runs, but I f--king hate it tbh.

    You are correct in that they both compliment each other nicely but ultimately nutrition is going to be far more important. You cannot out work a bad diet.

    Is there any food or supplements you can recommend a vegetarian like me? I'm in pretty good shape and work out regularly but I feel like I'm kinda reaching my limit in muscle growth because I don't eat too well

    I've been dipping in and out of diets over the last few years. 3 years ago I lost 4 stone (25kg or 55 pounds). But over the last 18months I've put half of that back on.

    I lost my daily workout routine when I changed jobs and then started eating bad.

    Anyway, my question is; how do you stick to a nutritional diet? Do you not want to just binge and eat a burger and fries and snack on crap like crisps/chips and things like chocolate 7 days a week?

    I’m struggling to lose some weight. Dropped from 300 to 270 and I’m trying to get down to 220. I walk 10-15 miles a day but I stopped losing weight.

    Also, is 220 even a good weight for 6’5”? My BMI now at 270 is technically obese but I only look mildly chubby.

    If I can recommend minimalist baker For some decent meals. Tofu, seitan and tempeh for easy protein in meals.
    make sure you press and marinate your shit. Motherfuckers wouldn’t eat meat without adding some spices, same for us. r/veganfitness for advice/help and myprotein has a decent section of vegetarian/vegan protein powders

    It’s mostly from what you eat, we all have different metabolisms. In some cases you can walk or do some crazy interval training but it won’t yield those drastic results.

    See what could work for you, possibly cut certain calories and try seeing if either a low carb or low fats diet is right for you. Examine how your body reacts and if any changes do end up happening. They most important thing is that you feel healthy!

    Once you know where to look it becomes a lot easier. I would even recommend r/vegan and just typing in the search bar 'protein' . I was vegetarian from 16 - 26, 26 - now (31) Ive been vegan. If you ever have any questions or anything, never hesitate to ask, Im always more than happy to help. Just also wanna say thank you ❤︎ your diet choices mean a lot ❤︎

    I dont know if you use tofu much, but its greet to have a designated tea towel or two to press your tofu in. And ALWAYS marinate tofu after pressing.

    Will do that! I've been a vegetarian for almost one and a half years but I'm also a notoriously bad eater and I rarely cook for myself. But since the lockdown I got more into vegetarian cuisine and I'm trying to get the best out of it, instead of just sticking to the same old meals :emoji_sweat_smile: And nice that you made the jump to veganism! We shouldn't close our eyes when it comes to animals suffering because of the excessive consumation of meat.

    I will answer every single question in this thread. I was overwhelmed with new clients this week. My bad guys.


    No questions will be ignored though I promise you all that.

    So this is a great question to show where my current stance on nutrition is and has been for about the last decade. What you posted appears to be a text book "clean" diet. Some of you may remember I used to subscribe to the clean eating thing but unfortunately I was way off the mark(the entire industry was and tbh MOST still are).

    The fact of the matter is there are no good or bad foods. Our body does not have an indicator that goes "That was a clean food. We're storing that as muscle" or "Well you just ate a Snickers bar so we're storing that as fat." Our bodies are smart as hell but they are not that smart. The ONLY thing our bodies give a shit about are numbers. Your calories HAVE to be on point for your goals and from there your macronutrients(Protein, Carbs and fats) MUST be partitioned correctly. So what I practice along with every single client who comes to me is called flexible dieting. It's also known as IIFYM(If It Fits Your Macros) but I don't use that term because of the negative connotations that come along with it.

    Essentially, flexible dieting means that you have a set, daily macronutrient allowance and so long as you hit your numbers it does not matter where the food comes from. It's the ideal way to diet in my eyes because it is second to none when it comes to efficiency as well as sustainability. What you'll find is there are a LOT of "dirty foods" that you can actually fit into a diet and on the flipside there are a lot of "clean" foods that are loaded with calories unbeknownst to the poor individual who thinks they are eating healthy.


    Why did I tell you all of this? Because I have no idea if your diet is good or bad. If you get the time what you should is download MyFitnessPal and track a single day on your diet. It's super easy to use and shows all of your macronutrient totals. Once you do that come back to this thread and let me know your macro totals along with your height, weight and age and I'll be happy to advise you from there!
