    I miss my grill so much. Moved to a new apt that doesn't have a patio or outdoor space.

    I think i'm the worst cook, my cutting meals are mostly a pre cooked chicken breast with ready prepared salad from a bag. Sometimes mix it up and just eat a pound of fish with no seasoning and nothing else on the plate.

    how the hell can you be a "bad" cook? It just means you're stupid. There are literally millions of recipes on the googles, find something that sounds interesting and make it. Rinse, repeat. You won't win a chef of the year award, but jfc people.

    Haha, I did this today as well.

    Cooking really isn't hard if you got some basic skills of ingredients, what flavors work together and some imagination.

    Got an instant urge to eat risotto post-workout, but knew I couldn't cook it the normal way since it's too high in fat for my daily macros.
    Instead of buying specific risotto rice and cooking it in loads of butter, I just used my ordinary basmati rice, cooked it longer than usual to make it really soft, added fried mushrooms and onion. Boiled it down to the right amount of liquid for that smoothness. Set it aside and finally added no-fat cottege cheese, fresh basil, some salt and pepper.
    Served it with chili chicken breast and broccoli. Had ice cream mixed with casein pudding for dessert topped of with hot strawberry sauce.

    Basically cook whatever I feel like everyday on this cut. Only takes 10 minutes every night to figure out the right amounts of all the ingredient so it fits my macros for the next day.

    I also have an apartment whose door opens directly into a courtyard. They don't care if we grill there so I might buy a full size one and start grilling all the time this summer.

    On all squat variations I'm really hitting my quads and not prioritizing my glutes/hams as much. Would putting a plate under my toes help resolve this?

    PS did someone just post about Yohimbine in here? Heard it helps with burning lovehandles and lower body fat generally for some stupid reason, broscience or not?

    Yeah, I did. I didn't buy pure Yohimbine powder, since that shit seems very dangerous if not taken in super accurate doses (0.2mg/kg BW) and don't wanna buy one of those expensive drug scales. Got Alphamine from PES instead. It contains pure Yohimbine extract and has good reviews. It's been taken out of shops here in Sweden, which could say something about it's efficiency.

    Martin Berkhan of Leangains recommends Yohimbine as a method for losing stubborn lower stomach bodyfat. Only worth getting into if you're at least 10% bf and have been struggling to lose more. Won't have any noticable effect otherwise.

    I hate the cleanup, and you need to do some planning ahead of time, but cooking is kind of relaxing to me. I often get too lazy to do much more than throw some chicken in a bag of olive oil, an acid, and some dry seasonings, but there's something to be said for going the extra mile and using fresh herbs, real garlic, onion, etc. I've got a bag of chicken in the fridge right now cover in a jerk chicken marinade I made from scratch last night. Jury is still out on whether the effort was worth it, but I found the process of making the marinade with fresh ingredients gratifying.

    Lol I'm like that most of the time Stinger, make shit food that isn't unedible just because I'm too lazy to actually do anything.

    It really helps if you just take like once a week to make a solid meal, and then start building from there. Also, there's a lot of really quick and easy recipes you can make on the fly if you look around, tastes way better than just throwing a slab of chicken in a pan.

    I'm really digging how I'm shopping, too. Basing weekly meals off what's on sale or what I have coupons for. Cheapest possible way to shop plus it's really letting me mix up my diet and make stuff that's easy and fast. Might wanna try that.

    BTW Conceptionist you mean it's not worth it if you're not UNDER 10%, right?
