Diet or Training - Which is the greater challenge?

Which to you find the most challenging?
 
Keeping up all the grafting in the gym, the doms, working 'round injuries and other niggles.....
 
or the dieting, cutting and saying no to all those foods you'd love to be scoffing everyday?
 
This question is not applicable to those on a permanent bulk

Yeah tend to agree with you mate, some days are harder than others. Walked into my local Tesco Metro yesterday and it was like wall to wall with special offers on crisps, chocolate and even Ben n Jerrys was £2.24p. I don't think it was even that price 10yrs ago! It's like they want us to be fat lol

Lol I feel that every morning too but if you can get past that initial few mins of "wtf am I doing getting out of a warm bed at this time?" feeling, then you'll be glad you did.

Diet for me too. Love grub and beer. So have never seen my abs but happy with the way i look, which imo, is half the battle.

But to get in your avi condition Jack you must have had to do some serious dieting. Not easy when you love eating.

Diet.
 
Training is fun and lasts 45 mins 6 days a week.
 
Diet is boring and hard and lasts 24/7.
 
No contest.

Neither.  I love training and keep my diet interesting so that every meal is a treat.

not only do you have to deal with hunger and cravings but I also have the mind **** , of questioning myself, " am i dropping fat, is it coming off too fast/too slow, i look skinny, i look fat or flat" and so on and so on lol

If I am on a cutting diet, then the diet because of the mental strength required at certain times.

Diet on rest days is the killer, that's where I crave everything and anything, training days I can stick to any kind of diet I have to, so long as it has sufficient protein and carbs.

If you love something let it go,if it comes back to you it's yours,if it doesn't it never was.
