set up height weight etc, then stick in goal weight.

gives you your daily calories, makes eating much more mindful and when you see the actual calories of stuff you think twice.

I must have missed this. Thanks Maximus will give it a go.

Start of October: Maintenance calories was 2800. Ate 1800 and drunk 2L of water every day. Log it all through MFP… becomes a bit of a game. Simple resistance circuit 3 x a week at the gym. Lost over a stone and feel absolutely great. Just get on it LFC. You'll not look back.

Similar to above, in 3 months lost 10.2kg.
Had a diet and training plan, mostly weight training to maintain muscle mass and LISS cardio to lose fat.
Happy with where I’m at now, will lost a little more to get my waist super slim and then start bulking.

Meal prep is key for it all in my opinion.
Although was still eating fast food a couple times a week and snacking on crisps/chocolates within reason.

calories in vs calories out, fasting is another good way of simply limiting your food intake, meal prep is good, pick up a hobby like running or cycling if the gym aint your thing etc. etc. simply put just eat less than you need to

best: starting a new job in western aus, which means relocating to Perth. never been but hear it’s a very nice place to live

worst: I can’t avoid hotel quarentine, it will be the second time doing it (first was at Heathrow in august and fucking shit) and the country is expected to open in feb anyway.

worst 2: I am recovering from food poisoning I have been shitting and throwing up so violently my neighbours knocked on the door to see if I’m alright

Got loads of doctor mates and half have moves to Aus.

Great lifestyle if you're earning well and can look past all the casual racism.

Firstly congrats Quest. The U.K. is going to be a dumpster fire for the next decade or longer.

Sadly as a hairy brown guy I concur with illwill on the basis of my experience In and with Australia(ns). Only rich white boys need apply, the imported natives are racist af.

Didn't realise the racism was that bad there. Is it the same level for all non-white people, or moreso for Asians (South and East)?

What kind of things did you see / hear ismvil?

Standard towel head, sand n$%ger, where's the bomb? (from a customs official at Sidney Airport no less), general ignorance, telling my then 4 year old daughter to speak English when she was speaking to me in Arabic - quality character stuff.

Been given some steroid cream and stretching. Making progress.

Referred to the urologist but told that it could take a while
