    Does it need to be "portable" ie unrefrigerated and ready to eat at any time? and is money important? I like keeping bags of frozen pre-cooked medium shrimp around which is sort of expensive, but also frozen tilapia (uncooked) that walmart sells as 4 pound boxes with the 4oz fillets individually vacuum packed for $10. A couple minutes in a frying pan with a piece of tilapia and your choice of seasoning and you are set. Tilapia takes on the taste of whatever your seasonings are really well, so you can mix it up alot.


    I have the luxury of working from home when I want (generally only go into the office 2 days a week), so that makes it easier for me than some people.

    To keep the chicken less boring can make a big container of chicken salad with a light mayo and cubed chicken and nothing else then do different adds daily to small quantities of it to stay interesting, like dried cranberries and walnuts one day, julienned apples another, cajun spices and chopped celery another, water chestnuts and chinese noodles plus a few drops of soy sauce, etc. I like to roast a couple of chickens at a time + strip em for meat, $6-7 gets a few pounds of protein that way.

    And way to go man! I know the way you are feeling, i've dropped 42 pounds (give or take) this year myself.
    It does not need to be portable. I have access to a Fridge at work, however I do not have a stove anymore.

    I will get some of the items you both pointed out and start using them. I will still mix in the Tuna but it does not take long to get burned out on something.

    Thanks for the replies!

    I'd say leave anything supplement wise (aside from vitamins) alone as long as you can. You could add CLA, which is more a nutrient style.

    I think it would be nicer and more controllable to get down to the sort of body fat you really want to be at long term first before trying to bulk. That way you have a strong beginning reference point. I would think if you started bulking now, it would be a LOT harder to tell whether you were gaining muscle, loosing fat, or both or what. At least with a good reference point, you can monitor what your body looks like in the mirror, and tell when bf% starts to go up.

    Thats what i'm doing anyhow. I'm down to 203ish today, and around 18-19% bf I think. I'm insane, and trying to break 10% by aug 6. Its vaguely physically possible, but its painful to do 2+ hours of cardio a day

  13. I've been wondering about your resting heart rate. 53 sounds low. Not impossible, just really low. When/how did you measure that? Looking good tho!

    I agree with that as well

    Got that when I first started using the new Triax C8. I may not have been doing it correctly. Or it could have been a bad connection.

    I have it here in my office. Let me strap in on and see what I get while sitting here. Should be cool unless my boss calls. Then it will hit triple digits.

    DP

  16. my resting heartrate is always in the 50's....not that unusual...scares my doc somtimes cause my heartrate is extremly low...

  17. Looks like it was a Typo. I am seeing 63 to 65 average as a resting heart rate right now. If I almost fall asleep in my chair it will go down to 58 bpm.

    Is that better or am I still in a area that I should have some concern about?

  18. Nah, thats a lot more reasonable. High endurance athletes hit those low 50s kind of numbers, 60s are much more common

  19. i wouldnt worry bout it....im not an endurance athlete and mines in the mid-high 50's....low sixties...

  20. Thanks guys!
