Hi there!

Firstly I'll start by saying I've literally been an 'observer' now for a good 5+ years.

I have a interest in all things of a progressive nature, my upbringing always left me in the 'awareness' that we should always be moving forward as a species and civilisation... With each generation using the knowledge of the previous and adding too it, becoming smarter, more self reliant and ultimately achieving a better state of collective harmony.

( I learnt very quickly through my teens into early adult life that this is a fantastic idea but damn are we on the wrong road because that is far from our current projection. )

So a little bit about myself:
I'm a qualified Personal Trainer & Nutritionist, I work for a leading health club that most, if not all of you will be familiar with.
I genuinely practice what I preach, and I take pride in my work with a huge amount of passion and love. ( he writes as he currently sits here eating his chicken and rice hahaha... this might be a stereotype for a fitness professional/athlete but I assure you I'm not from the usual mould )

I'm hoping through ATS I may be able to help others as well as be helped myself, whether this be through resource sharing or even just hearing a good joke and that adding to my day.

Looking forward to getting stuck into discussions, hopefully adding a lot to the community myself and clearing up any preconceived misconceptions out there regarding the world of fitness.

To all of you, I look forward to engaging with you and I hope you find all in life you seek.

Namaste

Ok so you will need to workout your protein requirements and potentially look at whether you're getting a full spectrum of amino acids.

If you don't mind answering these I could really be specific for you


How much do you weigh currently?
Whats your current diet consisting of?
Are you exercising?

Hey fitnessguru,
Just wanted to 'officially' welcome you to the family, lol.

If you've been lurking that long, then you know the drill. Just jump right in wherever you want to.
Amazing people here...I even call some of them my 'family' now.

My daughter, the personal trainer, is full of great advice. Apparently she CAN teach an old dog new tricks, lol.

I'll be looking for your threads.

Welcome.

So when I wake up and drink a beer and eat a donut while I watch the morning news is that bad?

Sometimes I skip the donut.

Ok so...

Breakfast - if that's not wholegrain switch it straight away. If you can, remove bread all together. Opt for a rice cake with peanut butter, or porridge with some dark skinned berries and 'raw' nuts of some sort.

Lunch - reduce the carbs, opt for only rice and increase veg, especially greens.

Dinner - greens, and vegetables again. get as many down you as you can, carbs should come from wholegrain sources. So wholegrain pasta, quinoa, etc

Straight away I can tell you if you literally just switched your macro ratios up a bit you'd find better results.

Use your hands for portion control
Each meal must consist of;

Protein - 2 palms = 1 portion
Fat - 2 - 3 thumbs = 1 portion
Carbs - 1 - 2 cupped handfuls (single hand) = 1 portion
Vegetables - 2 fists = 1 portion

Reduce overall carbohydrates, (don't forget this includes all fizzy drinks, beer, alcohol as a whole, etc.)

Eat 4 times a day at minimum, if you can 5 - 6. You're body will make better use of the nutrients it is given and this will also allow for a more stable blood sugar level.

Oh and I cannot stress this one enough, a high quality Omega 3 supplement!
Forget omega 6 and 9, you need to supplement 3, this will within 2 weeks start to change your composition and ultimately help rid you off the 'moobs'

Training wise, drop down to 4x 60minute sessions a week for a better response from your endocrine (hormone) system.
This will help achieve higher levels of HGH, and Testosterone whilst reducing Cortisol. ( cortisol in basis fight for the same spots as testosterone only cortisol encourages fat storage and muscle breakdown whilst testosterone is the other way around )

Base your training around compound moves, so pulls, presses and lifts.
Squats, pull ups, rows, chest press, dips, shoulder press, etc

45m weight training follow by 15m cardio. Make the cardio HIIT, with 1 out of the 4 sessions being active recovery ( slow steady state cardio )

Finally.
Good old sleep, if you're not getting 8 hours a day you're already at a handicap

Get the fundamentals down and then is just consistency

P.S

General guideline for Macros for yourself would be:

Protein: 200 - 250g of protein
Fat: 70 - 100g
Carbs: 50 - 150g


Low carb days should be complimented with higher fat levels and vice verse.
High carb, low fat.

Aim to have high carb days on the days you train, and low carb on rest days for a better result all round


Myfitnesspal is a brilliant app which you can use that shows macro breakdowns. People who track like this always end up with a better result
