first off excuse my bad English, i am an Norwegian living in Thailand!
Finally found flax seed, nut butter and got the rest shipped from Biotest here.
background: after not working out for around 5years mostly sitting behind the computer and being lazy. i started working out about a year and some months ago, doing Chads full body program(after some beginner months screwing around with machines only before learning squats dls etc).
used to be around 198lbs and super weak, lost 25lbs in around 3months of just hitting the gym 3times a weak and got alot stronger aswell. weighed around 175 the last 6months losing fat slowly and gaining some muscle (haven’t been eating good enough)
so decided to try this program to lose those extra few pounds, before slowly start to bulk properly( in around 2 months i hope to start doing that if this is successful
hight: 5 10
weight day1: 169
anyways enough rambling i am already on day3, forum wasn’t working the other day and Ive been kinda busy, but heres some thoughts after the first few days.
may5. day1: got a bit demotivated by not liking the shakes very much but they all went down without problem(and they keep tasting better each day), the workout was a lot harder than i thought it would be cause of the 30sek rest periods which Ive rarely been doing and def not through a whole session. the hunger wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be.
day2: woke up starving! hope it doesn’t get much worse than this, whole day i was pretty hungry but it went ok, didn’t get very tempted, except when gf started cooking thai food.
found out you have to make sure the lid is properly on when u grind flax seed in the mixer, got the stuff all over the kitchen, whoops!
day3: 2nd workout went a lot better, not felt the starving feeling just a bit hungry now and then but nothing big.
not been too tempted to eat even though the 5minute walk from my gym to the apt has about 20 different street bbqs 2-3 open air restaurants and all kinds of food smells, this is bangkok after all! not the easiest walk home
i will try to do better and more frequent logs from now on and i will get some pictures and measures up soon.
iam sure these questions have been asked before but ill ask them anyways!
from people that have done it or deeper in the diet is the hunger feeling worst the first few days? i sure hope so!
i usually play soccer for an hour once a week, very social not super intensive but its in 85-95f heat and can be tiring. should i keep doing it and drink some Surge after, or play but try to not get to tired and not do nepa walk that day and no extra shake?
or just drop it all together which dosnt leave me many social activities left for the month, unless i decide to go out and not drink, or go out for dinner and not eat which is not very tempting right now.
