    I think it's just that water + whey protein to me tastes "meh, ok" at best. Do you add anything extra to yours? I think I once read someone here makes ice-cream out of his whey protein.

    I'm using my first tub of cookies and cream. It does taste weird, but it's not bad. I drink all my protein in shakes in 5 seconds to get them over and done with, literally...

    I've also increased calories by the same amount (200) starting yesterday and I'll take it from there. Looking forward to continued strength gains :)

    Yeah I plan to keep progressing on GZCLP, and then once LP gains stall after 2-3 deloads I'll look for another routine (probably something from Cody's cause I'm really enjoying the ride).

    Yeah I was thinking going down a few more Kgs so that I can then bulk whilst remaining relatively lean. "maintenance until stall --> lean bulk" is a good option too - similar to a recomp I guess.

    Focus on losing more fat or recomping?

    Following discussions I’ve followed on this section of the forum, I’m seriously considering doing a recomp instead of focusing on a calorie deficit. However, I want to make sure it is the right...

    Ideally you have some protein in your system whilst working out. I generally train first thing in the morning, so I drink a protein shake around 30 min prior when I wake up since I would have been in...

    I buy canned tuna, not sure if it's considered cheap or expensive, but to be honest if it's canned I don't consider it expensive per se, although it's called "Elite Tuna" :D 23.5g/180 calories per...

    You're probably correct. I will soon move towards a recomp in fact (need some advice in this regard but I'll wait a couple of weeks after the holidays) so then I will be at or around maintenance....

    Yeah I didn't mean the melatonin prevents wakeups, it just helps me sleep better. Although I only consume 1mg so it could be placebo I guess.
