I'm doing really well on my training which I started in June last year. I have gone from 14st & 25% bodyfat to 12st2 & 17%bodyfat! So really pleased with my results so far. I train everyday in my lunch hour for 30 to 40 mins doing mainly heavy weights and low reps. I Hardly bother with cardio at all. My main goal is to build lean muscle and get rid of my flabby belly. The belly has shrunk quite a bit but is still not how I'd like it. Ideally I'd like my stomach to have some definition and eventually abs, at the moment I still have a little pot.
What I want to know is am I eating enough protein and if there is anything I can do extra to get to my goals. I did a little calculation last night and I worked out that on an average day I consume around 100 grams of protein. Is that enough?
I'm currently 12st 2 or 77kg. I've read somewhere that to build mucsle I need to have 2 grams of protein per KG, is that right?
At the moment my diet is like this:
Breakfast : Porrigde with skimmed milk, flax seeds and raisins.
Mid Morning: Sometimes I dont have anything but occasionally I'll eat nuts.
Training - I train just before lunch and have standard protein shake straight after.
Lunch - Usually something like Couscous with tune or Basmatti rice and chicken.
No afternoon snack.
Dinner: Pretty normal dinner as I eat with the family, so anything from chilli and rice to spag bol.
Should I maybe take another protein shake?
Also, I normally use promax, been wondering if its worth changing to cyclone? And does my routine/diet sound ok?
Any advice would be great !
