Title: Be Theres road to the NABBA UK
Post by: Simple Simon on May 30, 2017, 01:41:07 PM
The show is on the 6th November., seems like a long time but these things creep up

Feeling good after my last two shows and back in training and eating well, appetite is back and now up to 225.
Abs and intercostals still there, pretty lean everywhere else, retaining water mostly.
BP in check 120/81 last check.

Food wise
3 eggs beans bacon two toast
large bowl oats and two bananas
chicken or Tuna Wrap
Flapjack
Filled pasta pockets with cream and tomato sauce
chicken curry and chips
just got some maltodextrin, had a scoop with orange juice to try it.
cheese and crackers

Seem to be hungry all the time of late, nice rebound from diet this time.
Hopefully will be seeing Illuminati this weekend to go through some things and work out a plan for the show.

currently sitting at 228
Show date is 5th November as of the 12th June its 21 weeks
Time to start tidying my diet and getting my head together.

Training going well at the moment, will start calorific deficit 16 weeks out.
Will be doing two sessions of cardio this time around, a new thing for me, hopefully will allow me to add a bit more food whilst still losing the fat.
Not sure how its going to work out but I'm going with it.

Diet from Monday will consist of oats bananas, potatoes chicken fish steak noodles and veg.
Looking at around 3000-3200 cals.

Deficit diet starts 16th July at 2500 cals.

Can I ask a couple of questions please:

Roughly what time is your last meal?  Do you ever get hungry during the night?

And who eats all the bread you scoop out of the crusty rolls/tiger bread?


Hope it goes well for you (it will  8))

No lie - after reading this thread I had to go make 3 poached eggs with bacon.

Im a bit sick of them at the moment.

Looking for an alternative.

I seem to be eating a lot of carbs these days as opposed to enough protein. (using amino powder at the moment to make up for the lack of meat sources.)

Hot weather doesnt help with appetite.

trainings going well, still maintaining around 15'10 / 16st.

Not trying to gain any more weight at present, eating enough to hopefully make some improvements over the next few weeks, away to Egypt back end of July then its diet time for the show in November....

Good luck Jeff, looking good.

Eggs are something I've never tired of.  Possibly because a few alterations change the taste / consistency - even poaching an extra minute / less is a completely different animal, to me at least.

I never got sick of eggs, but there was approaching a 10 year period that I struggle to look at a can of tuna  ;D

You haven't listed a days food intake for a while mate...  (hint  ;))

Weird question (like mine usually are) but is your gym air-conditioned?  I've just changed to one that is and I'm not sure I like it - yet

Your quads look really good (nh) full and sliced already - you don't squat, do you?  I seem to recall you don't anyway but that's a great look however you are getting there (again - nh - don't get creeped out  ;D)

And you have abs 365 days a year so that's hard to judge, but fair play anyway - great overall look so far  8)

Don't tell people that!  Bodybuilding is all about the illusion, man!   ;D

Do you have to do much cardio?  I get the impression (possibly unfairly) that you're a pretty lean guy to begin with, so might not need as much torture cardio as some of us.  But if you do any, what's your preference?  My old gym had a Schwinn Airdyne which I really miss, so I'm thinking about getting one for home use....

He decided not to compete after his last show last year.
He was thinking of doing the UK show, decided not to.

Last time we spoke he said he was thinking of doing a couple of
Comps this year.

He is no longer posting on Getbig - Deleted his Be There account.

He is a really decent straight talking bloke in real life
Got his head well screwed on.

As & when I next speak to him iíll Ask if he is still intending to compete this year.
We had discussed a different contest prep approach & a few adjustments physique wise for him.

He could do very well in the seniors if he wanted to,
The thing is he has a good all round life & was competing as heís always in good condition
And not really interfering with his life.
Going all out for competitions is something he was weighing up the proís & conís about.

Fair enough - Threats to family even from a retard like him
& posting peopleís personal information should be automatic permanent ban

It goes to show mods are doing a decent job then.

Since I believe weigh loss is simply calories in vs calories out, how much calories do you try to stay within to maintain your normal physique and how low do you go when you want to lose your weight.
