Last summer I ran a very strict moderated eating regime which was only possible due to being off work. In that time I went from 16stone to 13stone7, which is quite a drop. I retained muscle but didn't build any.
Now, starting from a week on Monday, I am returning after my extended vacation period and my nutrition is a difficult one for me to work out.
I have access to a Microwave, Vending Machines, numerous 'fast food' sandwich shops, and other fast food outlets in close proximity to where I work, which is a bad thing, especially on the social lunch side of things.
My day is:
Wake up @ 7:15am (usually never have breakfast - if I did, it would either be a few pieces of white toast or a bowl of cereal)
Arrive at work @ 8:15am
Lunch @ 1pm-2pm
Leave @ 5pm
I am genuinely seeking advice for decent nutrition that will allow me to lose weight (i'm 14stone2 at the moment) and hopefully on the build up to summer, gain muscle.
I will be doing a 6-day workout routine Tuesday-Sunday, involving HIIT for upto 30mins, then 30mins of focused free weights.
I have lots of supps - whey protein, creatine mono, PES AlphaT2, PES Erase and PES Anabeta, but it is the diet side of things that is difficult.
I am a fairly fussy eater - don't like cold meats, and don't like Salads apart from lettuce and cress. Fish-wise, I do not like Tuna or Salmon, but I do like Mackerel, (which will stink my workplace out, so will save that for home). I am acutely aware that I will need to take multi-vitamins, any recommendations here? I currently take 1 Vit-C soluble tablet and 1 Magnesium tablet per day (I get cramps and this avoids it).
It is my intention to draw up a weekly 'menu' on this thread which I will stick to and report back with progress.
Thanks for any assistance!
