  1. I got a few packets of microwave rice to work out which one I wanted to buy in bulk. These weigh 250g and are basically precooked. The nutrition on the back of the packet for basmati rice suggests that one serving (half the pack, 125g) is 39g of carbs. However the content is precooked, water weighted rice. Usually cooked rice is 3x the weight of dry rice so should the nutrition listed be for like 30g of rice or something like that? In comparison I cooked up 100g of rice today and it weighed just over 400g when cooked, naturally if I eat it all, I record it at 100g, not 400g. The same should apply to the micro rice, or am I incorrect?
  2. 0.5kg per day and I’m 160 pounds, that’s like double of what Arnold Schwarzenegger used to take in his prime. Also 4k calories sounds like a lot. This is not optimal diet for building muscle and not fat, is it? PS: I was going to tell you all what a magical tool this myfitnesspal app is, did a forum search first, seems like everyone already knows...
  3. Hi all, As the title says, I could really use some help as regards my diet. I'm relatively new to this and I understand as a late starter I've got a lot to learn. My whole life I've been overweight! 18 months ago I hit a low as my weight peaked at 18 and a half stone!! I'm 5'10" and realised I needed to do something quickly so started on the keto diet. Managed to get down to 13 and a half but over the last few months its crept back up to just over 15 stone. For the last month I've been going to Santino's Gym in Derby and love it! currently go 4 times a week and will be adding cardio to my routine this week. So I finally I get to the point, I still want to shed fat but build muscle at the same time, which I'm told is something that can't be done! how many calories should I be aiming at taking on board a day and what should they be made up of (protein, fat, carbs)? Sorry about the whole back story bit but thought it would help to know a bit about me. Thanks in advance for any help
  4. I am a 21 year old Female. My body type is a Mesomorph and I weight 52 kilograms, my height is 5.3. I've been training 5-6 days a week and on some days i train different muscle groups twice a day. I'm on a calorie deflict which is 1.490 and my macro ratio is 40/40/20 and i've been trying to cut and lose some excess body fat and tone up a little more, although lately I feel like my nutrition and diet could be improved or better. I've also heard that some people see better results on a high protein high fat and low carb diet. Any suggestions and tips?
  5. Hi, I'm trying to eat to a 1600 calorie deficit and everything seems to be super high in carbs... Fruit is really high, Pasta and rice(obviously) but they're like for 100g of pasta you get 33g of carbs. If I go over on carbs will that affect my fat loss?? I am also trying to eat 162g of protein a day. Carbs are 81g and fats 72g. Today what I have planned to eat and have eaten is Scrambled egg(2 eggs) and 100g of chicken breast. Then a a small pot of greek yogurt. Then some Tuna(in spring water) with a a bit of light mayo because Tuna on it's own tastes like ass, and then 100g of Fusilli pasta. Tonight for dinner I plan to have this fajita chicken stir fry kit which is surprisingly very low cal and has( 33g of protein, 7.2g of carbs and 10g of fat.) And I've had some melon but even after all that food I still have 702 calories left with 16g Carbs left and 61g of protein and 44g of fats. What Can I do? I am clearly doing this wrong but I don't know if I can eat something that's super high in cal and protein to take me up to my deficit and macros so I Don't undereat, But what if this was to take me way over my carbs goal?? Thanks in advance.
  6. Calories/Macros

    Hi, I recently figured out that in order for me to lose fat I will have to eat 1600 calories a day but I am confused about macros and their importance. If i hit my calorie target but go over on fat or carbs or protein is that bad and will that hinder my goal of losing fat?? Because I am finding very hard to get everything bang on as one will spill over or maybe two macros will be over? Any help would be great thanks.
