  • I wear straps - not the ones that go around and around, but the "grips" like Vantage grips. That way I can pull a lot more weight that I normally would with my teeny hands and wrists. I only use them for pull though, don't bother with it for the not getting callouses thing, those are fine and after you build them up they…
  • whenever it suits your schedule is best for working out. as for food - depends on your goals. gaining muscle, you need to eat at a surplus, losing weight - deficit. work out your maintenance using a TDEE calculator and take it from there. even more importantly, a decent workout plan to stick to and consistency is the key…

  • ? and your point is?
  • I haven't been diagnosed with BED, but, like a poster above said - I can easily consume thousands of calories in one sitting. I struggle with this - if I start I can't stop kind of thing. Generally brought on by trigger foods, so I can't buy stuff like crisps, unless I make the conscious decision that I am going to sit…
  • I have a garmin chest strap it pairs to wahoo app. I didn't try to get it to pair to MFP or anything tho
  • LOL best one yet!!
  • PS - I wouldn’t recommend that 15 minute thing or the 2 minute killer thing to a newbie Stick to basic until muscles are stronger and mind muscle connection better And keep squatting and deadlifting etc
  • As a person who trains in a bodybuilding-esque way, I use them quite often. Depending on what my program is It can be as simple as 3 or 4 sets of 10, or pyramid sets, or, like today, 15 minutes non stop going from one to the other - the harder it got the less reps I did. The weight was lightish - like maybe 60% only of my…
  • Are you prepping by yourself or with a coach? If with a coach - do what they tell you and don't ask random MFP people. Also, discuss with said coach if you are still hungry on 2080 cals, coz they will drop way more by the end of prep unless you are naturally gifted with fantastic fat losing magic. If you are 13% BF then…
  • My kid decided she's vegetarian. I have found some stuff in the supermarket such as vegetarian sausages in the fridge section and some fake chicken and fake fish in the freezer aisle and I"ve tried them and they are pretty good! The fake chicken and fish are mainly tofu-based. Tastes almost like real fish/chicken. Don't…
  • I found a pasta/noodles alternative which is pretty good (well - tasteless but once you add stuff to it it's good). It's called Barenaked Noodles and they even do a protein one too https://www.harrisfarm.com.au/products/barenaked-noodles (Australia - but they might have an equivalent wherever you are) The only problem I…
  • I also have a nightshade sensitivity, but I find that cooked tomatoes are OK for me - as in the tinned stuff or passata. I have more of an issue with peppers and eggplant though. What I do though is not completely eliminate it, but relatively regularly still eat a little bit of it. I have found that if I go too long…
  • cheese, salmon, deli meats, eggs, meat, fish, whatever you want that is protein.
  • Me too. Dried chicken breast gets old really quickly.
  • Looks like OP is not answering, but I will also put in my 2c, which is pretty much what everyone else has said. What's the problem with flour? Personally, I use whole wheat flour more often than plain white flour, but depending on what i'm makin g- eg birthday cake - then the plain old white flour is better than…
  • I agree with this. Can you get like a week pass to go and try out both gym for a week each and make your decision then? Ask at the counter, they usually do this kind of thing. Like a trial. If you think classes will help - then the big gym. But do they have classes at the bodybuilding gym? Also, in terms of you looking…
  • My cats don't give a toss. Typical.
  • My kid sucks at eating and is very very skinny. I make banana bread/muffins and will chuck some protein powder in there for extra protein, use lots of eggs, use butter. Not "diet" banana bread LOL. I have put collagen protein in her Milo in the morning too. She not only sucks at eating but is also a self-proclaimed…
  • Google Brett Contreras "the glute guy"
  • yep! some months I'm a raging lunatic, others I'm OK. Last month I was psychotic. I find that when I am being more adherent to a decent diet and working out regularly it gets better, but then when I am eating all the chocolates and skipping gym days, it tends to make me more psycho. But, life. ANd sometimes the eating…
  • Me three Me three. I can survive through low carb for about a week - barely. I usually need to be on at least 150C in order to feel satisfied and not have an empty hole in my stomach.
  • I also use the recipe builder and like everyone else weigh the final product and then I enter it as "per 100grams" so that way I can eat more than one "serving". So if the total thing weighed 800g I'd call it 8 serves of 100g each. I have a tonne of saved recipes. Sometimes something might change like i'll use a different…
  • Another hand up for the TDEE method here. No need to worry about the burn calculations that way. But, like mentioned above, the online calculator is a guide - you need to look at the data over some time to adjust to fit you. I have a FitBit that I turn on when lifting and it gives me a number which I look at out of…
  • I am also in the cold pizza for breakfast and breakfast for dinner boat. Some days my daughter asks for rice for breakfast. Plain white boiled rice. Just eat it. Who cares anyway if it's "weird" or not?
  • I think a lot of us are in the same boat. That's why I lift weights. So I can eat more. Pretty much the main reason!!
  • People Who Type Everything Like This Drive Me Absolutely Effing Batshit! Because OMG Haven't You Ever Heard Of Sentence Case? Or Is It Some Newfangled Youth Thing That Is Cool? I Mean, It's Even Hard To Type This Way Having To Keep Hitting The Shift BUtton All The Bloody Time Arrghhhhhh. Totally Judging.
