That’s the one.Is that with Lee? The go commando one? I started doing his rapid fit sessions in the morning on Facebook
Have loved his rapid fit sessions and the Pegan style diet, I just cannot make the times he does the commando class to make it worthwhile membership wise otherwise would attend them myself.That’s the one.
Advocated his RapidFit stuff on here a couple of times but then didn’t follow my own advice.
Did a couple of sessions of BC last week and it was great to be back.
He’s a good guy is Lee. For a Liverpool fan.

Have lost weight in lockdown doing his sessions and diet change
Fuck that, he would be that bloke who would run there 10 miles full sprint to do the workout and not have broken into a sweat. Nobody likes a show off.Knowing him he probably would.
Could you imagine the competitiveness between posters? If we have to partner up I’m going with Trav.
What's a pegan diet?
The pegan diet is a mash-up of two popular styles of eating: vegan and paleo. With the vegan diet's strict adherence to animal-free eating and paleo's reputation for being meat-centric, it might seem like these two eating styles are opposites. And yet, the pegan diet attempts to blend the best of both worlds.
Isn't that just called 'eating'?The pegan diet is a mash-up of two popular styles of eating: vegan and paleo.

Just seems a bit of a shit way of naming it and mashing two total opposites. One totally against animal products, one based almost solely on it. Neither of those specifically talk about not eating processed foods etc.It is eating but it takes out the refined processed food mainly so meat, salad, veg, no ready meals and takes out pasta, normal spuds, rice etc and you have little quantities of sweet potato.
The way Lee has been advising is that we stay close to slow GI release food and not spiking the insulin levels.
None of us are fit enough to run a class, I can recommend the rapid fit ones and also one I do at Earlsdon rugby club 3 times a week (Mon/Thurs/Sat) on a pay as you go basis, thinks it’s £3.5 a session now and if you attend more than one a week you can join two others on zoom on a Tuesday/Wednesday
I still post here , im around 124kg as of this morning, I'm in full flow here eating strict (very low calorie aswell) and working out like a mother fucker in my garden, my mates just had a hard breakup after his misses cheated d on him after like 6 years so we're gona start hitting the gym to take his mind of things gives him something to do and gives me a bit of motivation as I will have a friend with me .Is the original poster (Kieran) still posting on here? i read the first few pages, then it started going on about 72hr fasts, etc...
Kieran my advice is find something you can stick to that is sustainable, and you unfortunately then have to see it as a permanent change, rather than a "diet".
Sounds like you're doing fantastically well though. As you are already some way into you weight loss, you probably already discovered that initially you can lose an absolute shit-load... this is because when you are (over)eating, your body is retaining lots of water which it requires for digestion. When you start lowering your calories, your body needs less water. Hence why you piss like a racehorse at the start of a diet, and also lose weight very quickly (did you mention 3kg in one day?!?).
You sound like you're still going well, but at some point it will start to slow down. It's really important not to get discouraged, it happens, but keep at your change of lifestyle and the results will come.
As for going to a gym, i didn't read far enough to see if you ever joined one... but if you haven't i'd certainly recommend it. I go to Capitol Gym on Longford Rd, which has a reputation as a "weights" or perhaps a "meat-head" gym. Certainly yes there is a higher proportion of "serious" people there, but they are as likely to be boxers, rugby players, or runners (like myself) as roid-addled lunatics. That kind of gym is probably right up your street.... nobody in a place like that is going to look at you negatively for trying to improve yourself, and you are likely to get better advice and encouragement in a place like that... i can totally understand it may be intimidating to step into a gym and see everybody seemingly in good shape, but there's allsorts.
Capitol are also affiliated to a couple of other similar gyms around the city. All reasonably priced (i think i pay direct debit and it's £26 a month). Any gym is going to appreciate your custom at this difficult time.
My story (for what it's worth)... pretty unremarkable.... i was a saturday and sunday league football player, and also played midweek... sounds pretty healthy but that also meant several weeknights and most of the weekend in the pub. My weight slowly increased, but as a tall guy i always carried it well and have always had good cardio fitness. One xmas i stepped on the scales and was amazed to be 102kg (just over 16 stone).
I'd just recently got into Thai Kickboxing and just threw everything at it. Started having only fruit juice or yoghurt for breakfast (somewhere you've got to lose calories, and i'd rather be a little hungrier during the day and then go to bed with a good meal inside me), and started eating rice instead of mash potato, chicken instead of sausages and bacon, etc. All simple changes.
My original target was 84kg but i sailed through that and ultimately stepped into the ring for a pro fight weighing 77.3kg (for a fight at 78kg). After stopping kickboxing i was straight into running and have never really gone back above about 82kg. However i'm on a real drive at the moment with diet and training and weighed this morning at 78.8kg, which it just about the lightest i've been since my fight.
It isn't easy, or everyone would be walking round ripped to shreds. But there's always plenty of people to offer advice and support...
My calorie deficit is in the 1000 a day atm that's going of my bmrFair play to you. Just be wary of over-restricting the calories. Trust me, i've "made weight" for several fights... trying to function as a human, never mind train, is incredibly tough if you don't put a reasonable amount of fuel in... ultimately it was that mental strain which is why i stopped doing kickboxing, rather than anything physical...
If you're working at a calorie deficit the weight will come off in time...
I mean I can do nothing but drink water for 7 days if I really want to and still feel fairly decent, as I told a family member who was complaining its my body I will lose it no matter what if you have any issues keep them to your selfI find 1000 a day deficit doable, I know some don’t, I can’t go to 1500 without seriously feeling it (I tried). I guess people have their own limits.
Is Cov fortnight still a thing? Can't be that many places now that can't accommodate staggered holidays and need to shut down for two weeks?Woodlands. They re-opened last week. It was pretty empty compared to pre lockdown. Saying that, it is Cov fortnight.
I think a bit of both.Is Cov fortnight still a thing? Can't be that many places now that can't accommodate staggered holidays and need to shut down for two weeks?
Or is it just the first two weeks of kids being off and everyone wants to get away, esp this year when there's a fear of travel being restricted again so get away while you can?
I can't even afford a fancy watch , will get one eventuallyWhat’s going on with Garmin? The app has been down for a fortnight now, turns out they’re apparently the victims of a ransomware attack, so everyone’s data is currently held unless Garmin pay a silly sum of money over... pain in the arse, you can’t use the app at all now
Mine has been ok, I've had a Fitbit blaze for about 2 and a half years.Don't bother, I've had 5 Fitbits, they don't last any longer than a few months. Poorly made crap.
I've got a Huawei watch now, decent battery but no Strava api annoyingly
