  1. I am trying to loose some extra body fat and cut my calories / moved to mostly whole foods which seems to be working. I can feel my top 2 abs again just dieting for a few weeks. I plan to add in more rowing and maybe some clen just to burn the stubborn fat out, and then lean bulk for 4-6 months after this. I am wondering if I increase/decrease carbs, but maintain the lower calories, does it matter? My diet looks like this at the moment. I may swap the potato and kidney beans around, I always add spices, may add a handful of spinach also etc but the base is the below. I also drink apple cider vinegar + ginger + turmeric in the morning. I will train and then eat dinner hence the high carb dinner.

  2. Conditioner for Minoxidil

    The spray works for sure (its basically minoxidil that is found in regaine). The reason I prefer now the spray from Manual vs the Belgravia stuff is because the spray contains minoxidel 5% and finesteride which I actually find is giving better results for me personally. And it is much cheaper. I don't notice any more/less growth anywhere else on my body other than my head hair. A test cycle is when I actually notice more hair growth on the body traditionally, but I've been on the spray both on and off cycle, and my other hair growth is parallel to how it was when I wasn't taking anything for the head hair.
  3. Conditioner for Minoxidil

    They took 'before' photos, then I was on 5% minoxidel 2x a day. The issue is its a serum so your hair becomes kinda sticky (was fine for me as I WFH during that period). You also have to inject it on your scalp... like take the serum out with a syringe and then apply to your head... twice a day this is a lot of work tbh. I did this for about 9 months and all my hair returned and looked much better. I won't say its like my youth hair, but its definitely 10x better than when the hair loss started. It takes time and persistence though... I didn't travel much during this time... stuck to the routine like glue... regularly used their shampoos etc so was the 'ideal' patient really. It cost I think 800-900 GBP in total because I paid for the year upfront and asked for their shampoos and everything also. Was worth it as I had regressed quite a bit. I then swapped to the spray from Manual London as its much cheaper, and I find the spray absorbs quicker, so when I then dry my hair it looks natural again.
  4. Rowing Machine Calories

    Oki
  5. Rowing Machine Calories

    How comes?
  6. Rowing Machine Calories

    I cleaned my diet. I’m at 2k calories. Weight is steady at 87.5kg at this diet. Stamina yes but mainly loose some fat. Probably 3-4kg then build stamina. 20 mins is enough? Anavar any good?
  7. Rowing Machine Calories

    I brought a rowing machine so I could do fasted cardio in the morning and squeeze in 20 mins while my food cooks too. Rowing seems better for your full body vs treadmill too and is more fun. (JLL R200+ rowing machine on Amazon). I am 88kg ish now, 6’0, trying to get to about 85kg but lean and maintain it. Is it best to try and do regular rowing and burn a target number of calories? Or a HITT style workout where I go fast and then slow etc? I want to build up my cardio / stamina also. Is it worth having a clen before rowing or no point?
  8. Wet sauce is like pasta bake sauce or something?
  9. I emailed bulkpowders they said it wont mix well and will leave an aftertaste. But in another thread you mentioned there was one that was easy to mix in hence curious.
  10. I am fussy indeed lol. But also realistic on what I will stick to. I genuinely did try tofu etc just didn't like it at all and won't stick to it then. Can you link me to a tasteless pea protein easy to mix with the beans?
  11. But protein in the white bread is lower. From you list, beans/quorn (in the bread)/low fat cheese and eggs and whey are included in the diet. I can add pea protein to the beans also. I tried quorn/tofu etc but really don't like it.
  12. Issue is normal bread has more carbs I can make mashed potato from normal potato also. Was just trying to assess macros. Any additional ideas? I could mix some pea protein in the beans too.
  13. What is optimal? Yeah the whole diet I like all the meals.
  14. Oh I see. So the diet above is good to go?
  15. Yes fat loss diet. But are these meals complete? I am having vitamins in the morning / evening, also omega in the morning and evening. This is Monday-Friday diet. Saturday is cheat meal with pizza. Sunday is lentils and rice instead of the dinner I posted.
