    To be fair its not our fault we can't gain the muscle, trust me ive tried and it simply does not do anything. I stay the same weight really no matter what i eat.

    I also disagree about your previous point. Pasta and rice are completely fine in normal quantities. In fact you can eat what you like just as long as you keep within the calorie range of 2000-2500, far too much emphasis on the right food to eat. You can still gain weight by eating loads of carrots!.

    People simply overcomplicate weight loss. Do more than you eat.

    Very true, but imagine being 6ft 4, 20 stone, it ain't fun!

    I'm trying to gain muscle mass atm, got f'ing scrawny arms that look really gangly with my tall frame.

    ah I know one of the trainers in there he is a right wee hun lol

    Always good to get as much knowledge from people as possible. :50:

    sorry but that ain't true, carbs are not all bad ,carbs are what give you energy amongst other things and if you completely cut out carbs then you will just end up caving in and going on a total carb binge.

    Refined carbs as in white bread etc = not so good although if your looking for a sharp insulin spike then the high g.i content is a good thing.

    Unrefined carbs as in whole grain items = slow released energy and full of fiber

    One way to distinguish between carbohydrates that harm us and carbohydrates that heal us is to think about their fiber content. Products that are made out of refined white flour and white sugar usually have very little fiber and are very processed. Fiber-filled carbohydrates are better for you than those with little or no fiber. Fiber provides a barrier for your digestive system -- otherwise the carbohydrates get turned into sugar

    and as for rarely eating? thats a good thing why? :rolleyes:

    at the end of the day most things are fine in moderation. :icon_mrgreen:

    Uni can be bad for eating habits, you try to go for a quick fix or the "cheaper option" of fast food when in reality it isn't cheaper, its just a lot quicker.

    Also at Uni i think its a choice for many students of either decent food or buying alcohol. Unfortunately many students choose alcohol rather than good food.

    at uni myself and i think the main problem, diet wise, is a lot of students dont know how to cook properly. this might apply to newer students who are living away from home for the first time. in the end, they might go for a pot noodle, fast food or ready meals cause they dont know how to make anything else really.

    main tip to anyone that has any problem similar to this is just give cooking a try cause it really is a lot easier than it first looks.

    Yeh good point, simple cooking if people give it a go isn't difficult, spag boll is a reasonably healthy meal yet a lot of students will go and get a maccy ds because they can't be arsed.

    Been doing Kettlebells in the flat twice a day, every 2nd day for the past month. Just started running too which i'm going to do in the days in between. I also bought a power rack which I have set up in my spare bedroom. The kettlebells are a 6 week programme so when I have finished that I will move onto the power rack. Changed my diet, cut out all the junk food and have been taking diet whey protein. Totally seeing the difference already :) Just away to send off for planning permission to build a 5m x 4m home gym in my back garden, fingers crossed it comes back ok and hopefully get that built by the summer.
