    Thanks.
    I just buy liquid egg-whites in cartons. You just pour it in the pan and viola!

    I always make sure to have egg-whites around, since they're 100% protein, which makes them easy to fit into my macros (protein, fat, carbs).

    Are you guys tracking your calories at all by the way?

    Here's a few suggestions: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...4973183&page=1
    Cool! I'll have to come back to that site. Meals there sound a little time consuming though. Right now, I'm in the final month of my internship, so time isn't on my side during the days right now.

    Thanks though!

    I had no idea you could buy liquid egg whites...

    This is going to sound completely stupid, but can you drink it straight up? I'm just remembering when Stallone drank down all those eggs in a glass in the first Rocky movie

    Nah, I'm afraid I'm not counting the calories. I don't think I am able to be so strict with the diet, as these health foods are quite expensive, so I'm just doing whatever I can to cut down on all the garb and fatty foods. Maybe I'll have something naughty once or twice a month.

    This whole week at work, lunch has been different for me.
    Monday I had pasta.
    Tuesday I had salmon and rice.
    Wednesday, tuna and rice.
    Thursday, salmon and rice.
    Today, soup.
    And as for a drink, I've just literally had water all day(s).

    I used to a good bit but I'm more familiar with my body now so I don't feel the need, roughly know what to take daily/weekly anyway.

    Yep. I'm not sure if they're in the UK, but I buy these in bulk at my local BJ's Wholesale store:

    You can if it's pasteurized. The chance of salmonella is very, very low. I don't do that though.

    If your goal is just to build muscle, then keep in mind it's not only about what you eat, but how much you eat. Eating 'clean' is good for your overall health, but it isn't really necessary for building muscle. You need to eat more calories than your maintenance, while consuming ample protein and fats (protein for repairing muscle, fats for proper hormonal function).

    You see it all the time. People lifting weights for a long time while not getting any bigger. You ask them what their diet is and while they eat the 'clean' foods like chicken, fish, broccoli, rice, nuts, etc, they're not eating enough.

    The good thing about tracking calories is that it allows you to be more precise with how you're eating in comparison to your maintenance. You know when you're about 300 calories over and to stop eating. So you can gain weight slowly and don't put on much fat. But if you don't want to track calories, then you need to make sure you're at least eating over your maintenance by simply eating A LOT. You don't know exactly what your calories are, but you'll be gaining weight and muscle, and of course fat.

    Then perhaps you might choose to worry about calories on your cut, in order to preserve muscle mass. Or you could still not track calories, eat too little, and then lose too much muscle. That's the problem with not tracking calories.

    So it's up to you. Are you willing to sacrifice some excess fat gain when bulking and some excess muscle loss when cutting in order to have a looser diet?

    There's no right or wrong answer. It's up to what your priorities are, and if you think a strict diet will impact your quality of life too much.

    The good thing is that there are apps/sites you can use to easily track your calories. MyFitnessPal has about 99% of the foods in existence. You just add it to your log and it shows you how many calories you have left, as well as protein, fats, carbs, fiber, etc, if you want to track that too.

    For example, here's my log from yesterday. As you can see, I met my caloric goal, while eating enough protein and fats.

    Hmm thanks for that. I'll have to come back and read that again.

    So as well as eating the clean stuff, like chicken and fish, what sort of other foods would you recommend? Surely I should eat stuff like chocolate, biscuits and all that stuff?

    Believe it or not, for bulking peanut butter's a cheap way of going about things, just don't go overboard. :3 But yeah, almonds are a cheap source of cal/fat that are cheap, too.

    They're not the worst by a long stretch, bar the probable high level of sodium.

    OK, well to answer your question, you can fit that stuff in depending on your goals. Are you only concerned with your health? Then eating candy won't help you. Are you only concerned with how your body looks? Then by all means, eat candy as long as you're getting enough protein and fats and meeting your calories.

    Most bodybuilders primarily care about how they look, but still try to be healthy most of the time. That's generally what I do. For example, I ate mostly nutritious food yesterday, but I fit in a few of these...

    Okay, so eating a lot of calories gain weight? Let's say peanut butter is 22 percent fat and it has 180 calories. I understand that calories will be stored and whatever isn't burned will be used be fat. My question is, how does the fat go into the calories as unit of calories?

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Uh... what?
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    Well I'd love to improve the strength primarily, and I would assume that a bit of a bigger build would come with that. Of course I guess I would love to get huge, but I'm not aiming for that due to finances, time restrictions and lack of overall effort - by that I mean that I cannot work out every day and follow a strict diet 24/7.
    So pretty much my aim right now is to eat as healthy as possible during the week, which is the time period when I can get to the gym, and on weekends I will have a treat or two.

    Went to the gym this morning and worked on my shoulders. Will be going to work on the legs tomorrow so that they are better prepared for standing for long periods at my retail job at the weekend.
    On my way to work I had a chicken sandwich. I know the bread isn't all that but the protein content was about 20g or something. Along with that I had a protein shake. Just downed a protein bar a little while ago as a "tiding over" snack until lunch. I will go and grab some salmon and rice for lunch.
    Don't know what's in store for dinner. Living like that all the time is going to be expensive, especially when my paying internship ends in a just about a month now :/

    Can someone explain the health benefits to me of smoking cigarettes? Drinking a lot? Occasional drug use?

    Lol time to change. Been dead sober (except the smokes) about two weeks. Not planning to quit entirely long term just taking a break and probably looking into some changes in friends/scenery. Gonna be 23 next year can't party forever. Looking to get back more into some old hobbies like skateboarding, snowboarding, snowskating, etc. I love boards. I like cooking too so eating healthier would be good, and easier too with less money going to beer. Plus, more video games!

    So that's my start.

    Yeah I'm thinking of switching to e-cigarettes. Unfortunately the nicotine version of the cartridges for them are illegal in Canada for whatever reason (not approved by Health Canada / FDA), but there's a flea market about a half hour drive away from me with a stand that has them.

    Solid idea, have a few mates who use them now and they've had great success!

    Ok so my goal atm I have around a month to get fighting fit.
    I'm not bothered about weights or anything I'm talking pure cardio.
    What can be attained within this timescale? I'm a smoker and that probably won't stop; I run 1.5 miles in around 11-12 minutes.
    I need to get a lot more fit, I start the army in 33 days now so the sooner the better!
    I just ideally need like an average to above average level of fitness to be able to deal with what's asked of me during training.
    The actual training will get me fighting fit needless to say; but I want to hit that benchmark for when I start so I don't find it excessively difficult. Thanks guys!

    Well you could start by doing pushes, sit-ups, hang-ups .. All the military drills.. As often as you can stomach. Make some form of penalty-game out of it. Maybe some MMA drills even.

    That's still good going man and It can only get better ☺ I would just say stretching and being aware of how your feet hit the surface are really important, I've injured myself either by not stretching enough or my feet not landing correctly. I did recently and I still sometimes get pain in my right ankle 5-6 weeks after it first happened.
    I'm sure you know this stuff already I just don't want you making the mistakes I did!
