Hey guys, so just looking for some advice, last month I posted a topic on maintaining and the 'skinny fat' issue and got some great advice on here from people with how to go forward. I've been reading the Starting Strength book and have invested in some dumbbells and barbell to assist my lifting at home. Right now I have only began the starting strength noive programme as I've just finished strength classes, i'm hoping to do this at least twice a week alongside kickboxing which I've restarted as I'm back in college.
My issue really is with diet, I'm normally quite adherent with what I eat trying to go for the 80/20 approach however, I will admit I have got a little off track lately, perhaps with getting back to college and being on the go a bit more I have had a bit more chocolate here and there and that sort of thing. Just looking for some advice from others who have/or are starting strength training what does you diet consist of? Do I need to be stricter to get the full benefits from my workouts, I always hear abs are made in the kitchen..,should I be cutting the sugary foods as much as possible?
