It's been a while I must admit things at work have been amazingly busy
As a result my opportunity to train has been really limited. I've been working in excess of 60/70 hour weeks so there is zero time to fit in training.
So I decided it was time to try something that I've tried and tested in the past.
MP MAX Elle True Diet
Now I know what you may be thinking. This is geared towards women. That may essentially be true, however when you look at the contents you'll find the ingredients are exactly what you need to aid in dieting:
Protein Blend (Whey Protein Concentrate*, Milk Protein Concentrate, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithin), Oat Flour, Fat-Reduced Cocoa Powder (chocolate variety only), Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Fructo-oligosaccharide, Flavouring, Colour (Beetroot Red)(strawberry variety only), Guarana Extract, Medium Chain Tri-Glycerides, Green Tea Extract, Sweetener (Sucralose), Vitamin B12, Black Pepper Extract, Chromium Chloride Hexahydrate. *From Milk
For me (and you) the a few main ingredients in there that really benefit weight loss:
Protein Blend: As well as being high in amino acids, It is also as really useful tool as a food supplement. Protein isn't stored as fat and It can make you feel full. Combine this with the low carbohydrate content (4.8g per scoop of 28g) and it's an ideal meal replacement.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid or CLA: This is a naturally occuring fatty acid that's found in meat and some dairy products. It helps with weight loss by reducing body fat and promoting lean muscle
Guarana and Green Tea: Both of these are rich in caffeine. It helps to increase metabolism and supressing appetite.
So my diet involves taking a shake for breakfast. This instantly get's my body temperature up and leaves me feeling full enough for the start to the day.
I try to stick to a regimented diet throughout the week so I'll have one snack a day (11am or 3/4pm) that will be a cereal bar or snack a jacks.
Lunch consists of a tuna or chicken wrap, with a little mayonnaise for flavour - add paprika and chilli powder again to keep the fires stoked.
Tea will usually consist of Chicken stirfry, Chicken and salad/vegetables or sometimes substitute with pork.
I know it seems difficult, but if you stick at it you will notice results. Take a look at my before and after shots below. This was from only 6 weeks of dieting:
I hope you can see from this that there is obviously still a long way to go but, It's there is progress. I intend to stick at it and see how far this can take me. I'll be finishing my mad overtime soon, that will give me a chance to get back into the gym and make some real improvements!
