Been told off for being overly verbose. Trying again.

Right, I'll spare you all the boring details of my current diet because, frankly, it's sh*te. What I need is a decent cutting diet for someone (i.e. me!) who is: -

  1. Fairly skint
  2. Currently living in a B&B sans any kind of cooking facilities (though she does have access to a fridge)
  3. Calorie-phobic (she's scared of nuts. She knows she shouldn't be, because she needs the EFAs, but she takes one look at the calories and runs a mile, very fast, in the opposite direction)
  4. Unable to access a gym at the moment (which she's finding EXTREMELY frustrating!) because she's not got a permanent address (and being skint can't afford it at the moment anyway)
  5. Needing to lose a stone/stone-and-a-half
  6. Impatient if she doesn't see fairly fast initial improvements. She needs to keep herself motivated, y'see.

I promise that I will adhere, to the best of my abilities, to whatever you good folk advise me. MP's Impact Whey isn't bad on price, but I have nowhere to store large tubs/bags at the moment (I was going to add some sample sachets (and a shaker) to my last order, but forgot - D'OH!)

I was in Manchester before coming to Liverpool, and I still have my MP supps (CLA/Sesamin/Phase 2/Thermopure/Caffeine), ephedrine and clen/T3. I'm not so naive and green that I don't realise that supps are no substitute for a healthy, balanced, diet, but could someone help me incorporate them into a healthy, balanced diet, so that I get the most out of what little exercise I'm able to do at the moment? ECA stack recommendations would be good (the tabs I have are 10mg each (couldn't find anything stronger). I was thinking 30:200:75 (or 30:300:75, though I find that these days more than 200-250mg caffeine does tend to make me slightly nauseous (dunno why, never used to)) Any comments?

By the way, does anyone have any ideas to help me sleep better? Where I am is VERY noisy (next to Lime Street/Carling Academy/ several pubs - and I got feck all kip last night (and won't do tonight, especially if the Reds and/or Blues win!) Tried every herbal remedy going - does SFA.

If enough people recommend that I purchase a sack of whey (rather fancy the raspberry - any comments/recommendations?), then I'll find the cash to do so, but I'm fairly transient at the mo so, if the sack's not resealable, it's gonna go everywhere when I move! 

C'mon, lads/lasses give me your menus! I'll try ANYTHING to shift the flab that's crept on at a sheer rate of knots! I've even considered things slightly more dodgy (and illegal) than ephedrine/clen (yes, I know people who can get that kind of stuff for me, no I'm not going to do anything THAT stupid!)

Peace and out,

Sarah xxx

    Boss Redd

    whats your hight and weight?


    Ah yes, the nitty-gritties, that would help wouldn't it...? My weight's up and down more than a prossie's panties these days (a little under 3 weeks ago, I was 7st 12, I'm now 9st 2!! Anyone'd think I'd been stuffing me gob with MaccyD's for brekkie, lunch, tea and dinner! I can assure you I haven't! That's a gain of 6lb/week, nearly a pound a day (I know, roughly, there are 3,500kcals in 1lb fat. Would LOVE someone to explain that kind of gain! I'd LOVE to get back to under 8st again! I was HAPPY with my figure then...I LOATHE it now!)

    Height: - 5' 3.7" (according to 50p machine in Boots)
    Weight: - 9st 2
    BMI: 22.2 (yes, I know that's normal, but it dioesn't FEEL normal for me!!)
    BF%: Feck knows, I NEVER use BIA as it's about as accurate as an MP's expenses claim! I would LOVE to get it down to the top-end of athletic though (20%)

    There is a rather odd reason I want to get back down to what I was - I was able to shop in kiddies' depts then and it was saving me a feckload on clothes! When you're on benefits every penny matters and being able to buy a pair of trews for £10 (when an adult equivalent could be twice that) was extremely satisfying!

    If you could tell me what exercise I could do (have to be outside, this room is so small, you couldn't swing a mouse, never mind a cat!) without access to a gym (thank the gods I have my decent Asics with me! Yes, they cost me the best part of a ton, but they were worth every single penny! It's true, when it comes to trainers at least, you DO get what you pay for! Asics and New Balance are the only brands I've ever got on with (and they appear to be the 2 most expensive).)

    Cheers Boss Man - you da, erm, boss!

    Cheers Fiona! Was going to PM you (or Kitty) and ask if you could do that anyway.

    By the way, if it's any help, I have access to a Tesco's so-called 'Superstore' (well, it ain't. Super that is. It's the first one in the UK, apparently (they first rolled out the model in the Czech Republic) it's just very compact (food/electricals/homewares/clothes (though the clothing section seems to be limited to socks, tights and knickers!) on 2 floors) and about another dozen/dozen-and-a half Metros/Extras and 4 Sainsbury's Locals. The nearest ASDA is about 4 miles away and the nearest big Sainsbury's 3 or so.

    I'm sure you're all fed up with me an my inanities by now (but you're all too polite and good-natured to say so!)

    Are you actually taking any ephedrine or caffeine?  As this can contribute to the insomnia.

    With regards to the problem sleeping, I recommend earplugs.  I wear them every night and they block out most noise.

    If you don't have access to any cooking facilities, where are you getting your meals from?

    With regards to exercise, I recommend power walking outside as you are unable to make it to a gym.  What about swimming, is that of any interest to you?

    No, Fiona, I'm not taking anything like that - yet!

    I'm taking: -

    Thermopure
    Phase 2
    CLA
    Sesamin

    I can't sleep purely because of the noise.

    It's my diet I need to sort out, really, the exercise I can sort out myself, but I'm clueless when it comes to food. Really.

    Swimming isn't because I suffer from allergic conjunctivitis.

    Sorry it's taken me so long, I fell asleep.

    Thanks

    Sarah xxx

    is the lack of cooking facilities the reason your eating a diet of McD, if so hopefully finding some better alternatives should make a massive difference .

    One of the key ingredients is Green Tea Extract (GTE), which is an extract very high in Catechin and has been proven to reduce the amount of fat you digest and store whilst increasing the rate at which body fat is burned for energy. Thermopure also contains the unique Thermogenic Blend (Caffeine, Raspberry Ketones and Cayenne)

    With all due respect, I would advise that you learn to read a bit better. Where did I say I was eating a diet of McDonald's? Read my original post again...

    Point taken, Kitty, but I thought she meant pure caffeine. I NEVER take it after 5pm anyway. It's the noise that's keeping me awake.

    PLEASE can someone give me some menu advice - PLEASE!!!!

    I'd love you all FOREVER!!!

    it would help if you told us roughly what you were eating when you gained all that weight in three weeks, it must've been a lot to gain that much so quickly.  So I wouldn't call yourself "calorie phobic" :s

    If you were 7stone 3 three weeks ago why don't you just return to that diet and exercise? No excuses, you don't need a gym to lose weight, and you certainly don't need whey or any other supplement.
     
    You should be buying less food, so you should actually be better off money-wise?

    The diet previously recommended by James would still be suitable on a budget http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/fb.ashx?m=3429261 . The main thing is to be wise where you shop.

    I wouldn't recommend taking those tablets after 12pm if you have sleep issues. It also doesn't recommend them for people with sleep issues.

    Ear-plugs will help with the noise a little bit, PM the address where you're staying and I'll post you some.

    I've only ever been able to buy them in bulk from eBay or online, not a convenient/cost-effective way for most people!

    I have some lovely wax-covered ones, but I charge for those!
