[quote="ida"][quote="ida"] Will be interesting to see if I will maintain this weight when getting back into training full speed again, or if I will regain my lost kg's.


Training is going well but I am still dropping weight after VFW which is interesting and unexpected, since I am eating like normal and training like normal. This morning before breakfast I was back to my 22-year old self, weight-wise at least :lol:


Still a "tant". :D

Always. I think I was born with a mental knee-long skirt and clutch purse.

Squat - 170kg
DL - 200kg
BP - 110kg
OHP - 75kg

Hey that's cool thanks. The problem I always seem to have with these calculators though is correctly assessing my activity level. I find it hard to judge which level I am, which can result in a big difference in maintenance.

I've been trying to work out my maintenance lately - I just chose an arbitrary figure of 2500 which I plan to hit everyday and am monitoring to see if I gain or lose any weight over a 6-8 week period.

You could have a look here (step 2): http://rippedbody.jp/2011/10/23/how-to- ... ns-macros/

I did the same as you do, start at a certain point, monitor and work from there.

Glory days are over. I'm in.

I've packed 14 kg in 11 months. Let's find out how this cutting thing works.

I'm happy that my DIY cutting plan is working. I just can't count calories or follow detailed macros, it's like asking a monkey to solve a math equation. Trying that all the carbs I eat are also a good source of protein -trying to keep protein as high as I can-. I've cleaned the diet a little bit (cookies, white bread, dates, etc) and just stopped eating pistachos and cashews like it's the end of the world.

I've lost 2 kg in 2 ½ weeks. I think I'm doing fine (¿?). The initial plan was to keep this for 8 weeks but I'm not sure yet.

LOL. Strong choice of picture. Just don't follow the same plan, and stay away from saunas...

Is that tins of mock duck? Do people actually eat and enjoy it?

I get pretty dependent on sietan while cutting but the stuff I make isn't good, it's just edible. The only shop stuff I've tried is the slices which aren't nice or cheap. I've never known anyone to eat it and never really wanted to try it cause of the plucked texture and being in a tin

Please send me all the tins you don't want - I love that stuff!
