Roonster's SUC Jan 2012

Hi All,
I’m New to the forum.
I’ve been a reader for a while and started training last summer. Then damaged two discs in my back and was crippled with sciatica for 5 months.  
Anyway I’m in the worst shape of my life so I thought id enter the SUC.
My goals are to get to a decent body fat level and try adding a little bit of muscle.
I’ll post some pics and stats up later. (they wont be pretty )

    If you post your diet I'm sure we could help ideas for more protein intake. Could have egg whites omelete. Chicken or salmon for dinner or lunch. Tuna or steak rolls. Good luck diet is the main mistake people make. Keep uP the hard work.

    Cheers Brutali,
     
    When it first happened I started going to a Chiropractor, he told me it was caused by one leg being shorter and the my pelvis was out of line. Went to him for a couple of weeks but it seemed to be getting worse.
     
    After about 5 sessions, I actually couldn’t walk or sit for more than 5 mins .. it was the worst pain I have ever experienced. I went to see a doctor that looks after one of the big rugby teams in Ireland.
    He sent me for a MRI and it confirmed what he thought that I had ruptured two disks. He sent me two a physio’s and said to try hold out for a month and if I didn’t see any improvement then they would operate and shave the bulge in the disks, but not remove them.
     
    I think the Chiropractor actually made it worse. Pain killers didn’t seem to help and I had a limp for about 6 months. It still gets sore in the mornings and I can still feel the odd pain shooting into my ankle.
     
    What happened you mate ?
    Mine did get better but it takes a long time. I thought at one stage though my life was over, id never run, play footie again etc
    Great shape by the way ..  most of the pics people have put up for the SUC Id be delighted to look like that after a couple of years training!!

    Good to hear yours in on the mend mate, I think golf might have done mine, ive suffered for around 10 or 11 years and im only 30 y/o, Mines got o a stage where most things i want to do are out the question, I had an MRI done around 6 years ago and you could see the disc at L5 was worn away to the size of a smartie, Im now in a lot of pain, lying in bed seems to be really making it worse, running or boxing is a big no no, I have an appointment for the surgeon and hope he can do something that will allow me to do things in my life that I actually enjoy, Sorry for the rant bud and best wishes in the SUC and hope your back holds out

    Thanks
     
    Diet roughly looks like this day to day.
     
    08:00 Protein shake, spoon of peanut butter, plus Oats on training days
     
    11:00 hand full of mixed nuts
     
    13:00 Chicken salad, chicken stir fry or something similar
     
    16:00 hand full of mixed nuts
     
    19:00 after training, steak or chicken or some sort of meat and some veg
     
    I think i need to get something in with more protein at 16:00 or have another shake before bed? Any advice welcome. Thanks
     
    Oh any im trying to loose weight and keep what little muscle i have.

    No worries .. i can imagine how you feel.
     
    Yeah mine were the L5 and S1, i hope the surgeon can sort you out. I wouldnt wish it on any one. Take it he will probally remove the disk ?

    Im no diet expert, but i think you're meant to have some protein with every meal.  Whether it be in the form of a shake or chicken breast, fish etc.

    Well the first week is nearly over, three good training sessions. (Not including cardio)
     
    Diet has been pretty good all week, yesterday i had a bit of a treat day that got out of control
     
    Weighed my self on friday and i was 13.6 so 6 pounds in 5 days .. might be a bit to much ? although im guessing most was water weight!
     
    I do my weekly weigh in tomorrow, but im guessing yesterday splurge wont have helped.

    Yep a shake before bed would help or put a scoop of whey or casein in low fat natural yogurt. Or a tuna sald with the mixed nuts. Good luck keep strict with your treat meals like a 2hr window and after that stop and back to the diet,
