    Though I respect the bearded handled bat more than words can convey, lamb doesn't have the protein per ounce that beef does. Just sayin'. I love lamb, and it's a regular part of my diet, but it's not just as good.

    Don't beat me. LOL.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

      More fat

        Training has been 2 weight sessions, 2 sessions of hiit (15 mins of crunches, pressups, bodyweight squats), 3 times this week I've been walking to work (3 miles) and 1 sprint session (ran home from work switching between sprints and jogging). I've been careful with my training as I'm recovering from an injured neck from rugby.

        In terms of snacking I've factored the snacks into my calorie count using my fitnesspal
        I haven't been consuming alcohol as I only really like cider and it's mostly sugars anyway so been sticking with green tea and water.
        Have been eating a lot of peanut butter lately (maybe that's not helped) though so I've cut that out completely. The weekly cheat has been some chocolate buttons on a Friday/Saturday night. To put such a weight back I must be making a huge fundamental error.

        Don't be afraid to tell me straight guys I can take it lol. I want to make the best of the lifestyle and get the results I know are possible :-)

          Don't snack. Go a long time between meals so that your body has to burn fat. I found that switching my body off sugar and carbs and onto fat was the key. This is not so great long term so I now have a few evenings a week where I eat some carbs and don't sweat having root veggies but you may need to be more stringent about carb avoidance for a bit. Some peope will tell you that this is wrong but it is how most people get their metabolic flexibility back.
