Advice on my fat loss journey.
Hi roflspam, thanks for that. The program Im doing at the moment is currently interval training, and I try to stick to eating as much chicken at the moment as possible!

Thanks for the help nicky111.

The only reason I include bacon in breakfast is I feel like I'm struggling to meet my minimum amount of calories needed in a day and am worried about starving myself. I will cut that out starting on Monday. --

I haven't eaten any bread, pasta, potatoes, rice for around a month or so now, actually I find it kind of weird how I don't miss that kind of carby food as I used to eat alot!

Ill try to eat a my fruits whilst at the same time eating my protein's now, see if that helps.

Also after speaking to afew people, I think I'm going to spread out my protein shakes throughout the day, having only 1 scoop per shake at 7am, 11am, 4pm, post workout and including water into 2 of the 4 shakes ill now be having. Also going to be having my peanut butter later on in the day (roughly 30mins before working out) and having some cottage cheese late at night. Hopefully this will help

Thanks for your advice Smile

Advice on my fat loss journey.
Advice on my fat loss journey.
First of all, hi everyone, it’s nice to be here!
I just wanted people’s opinions on this and any help and advice they can offer, thanks in advance 
My story, I used to play a lot of football and sports at university at university, I’ve always been in the larger range of body sizes and would also call myself an endomorph, however during that 4 year period I was always in pretty good shape. After leaving and starting work I started to slack a lot with diet and exercise, and put on a lot of fat. I work a job where I sit at the computer almost all the time (Computer Programmer) and now wanting to lose a lot of body fat! My main goal is to trim down a lot first (I would like to be what I call slim) and then start working towards bulking up again.
My problem – I feel like I’m exercising a hell of a lot (I’ve never been a massive fan of CV - but don’t feel like I’m getting the results I want! )
My first error I think was never actually weighing myself when I started this, I’ve always gone off what I feel like I look like which is a very bad practice. However about 2 months prior to this I used to attend LA fitness where on the induction I got these stats.

Height: 189cm
Weight 112kg
Body fat 29.3%
Skelal Muscle 34%
Visceral Fat – 12
Waist – 108.5cm Hip – 115cm Chest – 116cm Right Thigh – 64cm, left 63cm, Arms both 40cm.
Now – on the 1st of July I took these pics (See below)
I started to eat healthier on the first of july. (Well what I thought was healthier) and also started the insanity program. It’s basically 45mins to 1 hour of HiiT / circuit training 5 times a week with way to much jumping! From most of the food calorie intake calculators I looked into I figured I should be eating around 2500-2750 calories a day?

Diet –
Breakfast – 7am. 1 serving banana, 1 cup milk, 1 serving muesli
Snacks – Medium apple, 10 tomoatos.
Lunch – 1 chicken sandwhich.
Snacks – Orange, 1 yoghurt
Dinner – 2 chicken chargrill, 1 pack of mixed veg, 1 large potato.
Calories – 2500, Fat – 48g, Carbs – 350g, Sugar – 100g, Prot – 150g.
Throughout the month of I July was very strict eating what I have listed.

Coming into august, I started to actually count my calories and do more research into diets, and found that my carb intake was very high and my protein not really enough. So after some research I decided to swap it up abit.
So from august 1st till now (Currently 26th of august ive been eating this)

Diet –
Breakfast – 7am. 2 eggs, 1 sliced cooked bacon, 250ml of 1% milk, 1 scoop of whey protein, 1 scoop of promax diet protein, 200ml of egg whites.
Snacks 10am – 125g of tomatoes.
Lunch Midday – 1 chicken breast, 150g of salad.
Snacks 2.30pm – 110g of peanut butter, 150g of raspberries.
Post workout shake – 7pm, 250ml of 1% milk, 1 scoop of whey protein, 1 scoop of promax diet protein, 200ml of egg whites
Dinner – 2 chicken chargrill, 1 pack of mixed veg.
Calories – 2250, Fat – 100g, Carbs – 110g, Sugar – 60g, Prot – 222g.
On a Saturday before I workout I will also cram some carbs in such as museli. Also on a weekend I’d say I have around 6 pints of cider on average. I’d say on average I drink around 12 1L bottles of water a day.

My exercise routine now consists of this.
Monday – Insanity High internval training
Tuesday – Rugby Training – Lots of cardio coupled with high intesnsitiy lifting (Olympic bar low weight high reps squats deads etc.)
Wed – Insanity
Thursday – Weight Training – high weight low reps, squats, dead, bench, pull ups, shoulder press, some isolated exercises.
Friday – Insanity
Saturday – Weight Training – high weight low reps, squats, dead, bench, pull ups, shoulder press, some isolated exercises.
Sunday – Rest.

From July I also have been taking –
In morning - omega 3,6,9, flaxseed, vit c, l carentine, green tea, CLA, acai berries
Before dinner – CLA, acai berries
Before workout – thermobol, creatine
After workout – creatine.

Now my main problem is I don’t feel like I’m seeing the results I want, I know im a lot fitter, and have more muscle that I started but I expected that, my main problem is that I want to see myself losing body fat.
Am I being to impatient? Does my diet need to be refined or should I be switching up my workout? Any other ideas? I really appreciate any input.
I’m not really concerned with my weight, more with the fat I carry. I also worry that I am eating to little and should be upping my calorie intake?
