EDIT: I realise actual food is a better source but it's not always feasible due to my work.

found bulk powders to be the best in terms of balancing taste vs expense.

Looking pretty peeled although lighting doesn't help. How are the legs coming in?

Still struggling to get them in but upper is just about there. Diet has just been obliterated so we should see some more movement this week

You hold exactly your weight in the exact opposite places as me - jealous.

Upper from the front looks 'in' (certainly for 8 weeks out). Still carrying in the lower back ever so slightly?

Regardless looking solid! Good luck with the next 8 weeks. Head to the ground and grind it out.

What are you looking for in particular?

A set meal plan isn't really sustainable for any length of time without getting bored (unless you change it up frequently)..

Kind words thank you ScottishMark. Kinda broke form plan yesterday but enforced due to emergency.
Back on today and will push on not too much damage done in a day hopefully.

I do think though that meal plans - certainly initially are easier to be implemented. Then work with people to help them sustain themselves.

I started an Insta page and doing plans if anyone is interested. Email is benyeezus@gmail.com. Insta page is yeezus__crew (all client pics are natural with good nutrition and no funky filtering!)

At 8 weeks out you'll survive, just Smiling

Diet wise/meal plan wise.. Initially or for a prep - perhaps a set routine is fine but for me, the best diet Is one that gets you results but more importantly, is one that you can realistically stick to, long term, without losing your mind. A fixed 'eat this everyday' plan just isn't sustainable for 99% of the population. What if you're stuck at work and don't have access to your set meal?

Educating yourself on nutrition and being able to adjest your own diet accordingly is, imo, the best 'meal plan' and is how I approach things most of the time.

Im already struggling SM. The cloudiness that you get from being depleted but I am on 3100 calories on a training day and just 30 mins cardio I have no right to even complain at all!

I totally agree with what you are saying but what I am sayin is a set meal plan can allow someone a starting point then you can work with people to introduce foods that you can substitute and values etc

You are right the monotony of steak/chicken/eggs/oats for 99% will easily become untenable but with some discussion and explaining then people can make good choices and learn to control their own food sources. If you are stuck in work there are plenty of get outs that you can make available almost like an "emergency" chest. I travel loads and it often happens to me

I need a fairly 'strict' one but something I can slightly deviate from with just a change of protein and mix up carbs.

I want something new anyway, I want to basically find some new meals which can be eaten from the fridge because I don't have a microwave at work :'(

if anyone's got a met rex store near them, they've got this at half price in the 2.273kg. Never seen it more than 15% anywhere.
