    here's another idea, now we are less than 20 kilos apart. put on 10 kilos in the time it takes me to loose another 10, and we can be at the same weight.
    i hate you.

    dammit, this just got harder. I did so well today too. Salad sandwich lunch. Grilled pork chop on rice for dinner. Snacked on fruit. Drank only water and one glass of herbal tea. I did so well....but....dammit, this just got harder.

    Tomorrow night - close friend's birthday, dinner then clubbing. I can't miss it....one of the inner circle. Shit. Will be very hard to not drink. Very hard. At least I can go to boxing first I guess.

    Thursday night - my company is doing the launch of a new bar and restaurant. I've been roped into MCing it.

    Very hard to not drink at the opening of a cocktail lounge, very hard to eat healthy at the opening of a fine dining Chinese place, esp when it is your client AND it clashes with boxing, can't go. Then it is the birthday of another mate, held in an expat bar. Not one of my besties, but my absence would be conspicuous.

    Argh.

    ^^ falling off the wagon is fine here and there: it sets you back a bit, but you can work around it. Around the holidays I ran a lot in the early a.m. before anything else got started. Actually, all of my running is before dawn now that I think of it. Put it first, and you're good for the rest of the day...within reason.

    ya, but ideally I would have stayed on the wagon for at least 36 hours!

    You could try this if you actually want results: http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/the...-loss-handbook. [​IMG]

    Basically, you would eat nothing but a 500-800 cals a day, depending on your current weight and current BF%. All the cals would be from protein. You can eat as many veggies as you want, as long as they are not starchy ones and not eaten with dips/sauces with carbs/fat. You supplement with fish oil and take a good multivitamin to make sure you don't go deficient in anything. You do moderate exercise because you're too short on cals to do anything too intense.

    Everyone I know that's ever claimed they were gonna do the "diet" you just proposed has failed. Based on your OP, all it sounds like you're going to do is cut back from a major surplus of cals to maintenance cals at best. I don't think you'll burn enough cals from working out and unless you seriously modify your diet (much more than you've stated you will), you're not going to see much for results imo.

    Probably, compared to the people you hang out with, but then again, I can kick a man in half or rip out his throat with my bare hands and use him as a juicebox. So nobody says anything to me about it.

    I thought you people were supposed to be jolly [​IMG]
