I think it's a fair comment!!

I like evidence, I need to see the point in doing something before I'll do it!

Maybe it was advice on something else and I got mixed up; it often happens.

I always wear a belt when I go above 70 on squat amd wear knee straps and I don't go below 90 degress. That's what I've been taught anyway

I am particularly interested in Oat Eating phenomenon.
Lol! I'm no big man. But oats has helped me feel full longer after breakfast also gives me the energy I need. I'm actually a lightweight. I used to weigh 7.4 stone 2 years ago. Now im 9.6. Been training for 2 years but its been on and off and diet hasn't always been strict. I got to 10.3 stone but dropped again due to my work and stopped training for abit. Ive been back on it for 3.5 months now and feel a lot better again. I want to eventually weigh 12-13 stone. Long way to go but im happy with the way im going. Last time I checked my body fat was around 7-8% and im quite lean. I wilk try n get some pics up inabit

How tall are you?!

At 5'8" I used to weigh 9.25 stone and a strong breeze used to blow me over. Now 11-11.5 (varies a bit).

I have had no problem putting weight on. I don't need to put pictures up, I am more than satisfied in my shape. Lost over 5 inch off my waist.

I have come down from mid 18 stone to early 15 stone and look slender at this weight, 6ft tall. I used to weight train regularly in my late teens and twenties. Stopped for more years than I can remember. Had a medical scare that made me realise I needed to get fit again so I can play with my kids into later life and not feel decrepit.

Cycling and general keep fit exercise works for me. I have resting heart rate of 46 so I must be cardio fit.

Not at all. Talking scientific here, not twisted at all.

People may be super fit without posting their pic here, but WE don't know that, do we? How do WE know that what they do and suggest to others REALLY works?? Tell me.

Fact: Claims that are supported with evidence/s are more reliable.

Prove this otherwise, and I'll give you 50p.

To add- No one NEEDS to post their pictures. You may, if you're telling the truth.

Ok, not that many, then. Just one would do. You're not my 'friend' on Facebook , your brother is. I've seen his pic where he's pulling his tummy in; to pretend that he has flat stomach . But I've seen none of yours. So, go on. Prove that you're well into your physical fitness.

I'm happy to do it in a few months (summer time). As I said earlier on, I used to do all sort of stupid diets and have only recently switched to a clean diet with carefully crafted macro's. There has not been enough time to see the result myself. However, I did tones and tones of research and fully believe this is the best and most sustainable way to go. I'm actually embarrassed about some of the poor choices I made out of laziness before (i.e. just don't eat because I can't be bothered to research how to eat properly and prepare the food).

FWIW, I weighed myself this morning and I'm now 14st dead. I was 16st 8lb in August 2013. Lost muscle mass along the way by making an **** of it though.

Nice to read this guys, looks like a thread that's here to stay for a while

Well I am on the last leg of my 16-17 hour shift today and my diet hasn't been too great, but again its better by a large margin to what I use to eat.

Breakfast:
1 slice of lightly buttered wholemeal toast
1 Banana

Lunch:
Steak grilled (canteen food)
Small amount of new pots
Sweet corn

Dinner:
Tikka Chicken pieces
Mushroom Puri (mushrooms in a garlic, onion and herb style light tomato sauce with a small chapatti)

Several brews and water along the way.

Fitness today has been nothing but work, pedometer app states 10 miles walking the factory over 16 hours, but there never accurate so I haven't calculated food for this.

Home for around 2:20am to a glass of milk and bed!


I get that the above is pretty poor, but my object out of this is to have a better diet, and although its not great, its still made me make some better decisions about my food intake than I normally would. For what its worth I'll get some pictures up of my shabby body if that's what you guys are in to :LOL:

There are thousands of examples of fitness and diet regimes. Just look at youtube for professional to complete amateurs demonstrating their physical improvements.

You will miss the best part of your life waiting for everybody else to convince you. Self discipline and a little hard work will get you going to a better healthier life

Not posed (I am deeply non photogenic; not hard to tell!), no diet faffing, just regular exercise. I'm the taller one; but only just ;-)



Abuse imminent...

Excellent evidence, Matt. Goes to show what you do works. I'm sure many people will be inspired by this.

Abuse imminent...
Why do you say that?? Because you have guts (metaphoric ones this time) to put up your picture with your lovely cherub kids, and you happen to be in great shape? LOL I don't think so.

Your efforts to stay in that fantastic shape are truly admirable.

P.S. for Matt- The only negative thing I have to say is that your grass could do with a cut. That's all.
