am just wondering if anyone with a bit more knowledge can advise me on supplements, diet etc.
am 32, 5ft 7ish and i currently weigh just over 12st.
am looking to lose the gut that just won't seem to shift.
average weekly exercise is 3hours of kung fu training which can range from slow tai chi style movements to full on sparring sessions and some fierce aerobic training, sometimes all within each session!
apart from the last 2 weeks (just become single again after 3 years) i normally do an hour of swimming midweek.
my job isnt exactly putting me through the mill, physically. i work in a small Currys.digital store. tho there is quite a bit of running up and down 3 flights of stairs for stock.
I can't really do any more kung fu sessions without joining another club and starting again from scratch.
I dont really eat a lot of crap. mostly cereal for breakfast with some coffee. lunch i'll usually just either have more cereal or sometimes if I know I'm going to training straight after work, or we have a gig with the band, I might have something more at lunch time and some cereal when I get in.
I know the usual reply is -lots of fresh fruit and veg, I can't really stand much veg, potatoes, carrots is about all I can stomach.
fruit wise, oranges and grapefruit is about all I like.
hardly eat red meat at all, maybe the occaisional bit of steak or gammon once a month.
don't eat much in the way of sweets or chocolate bars, tho I do like a bit of ice cream. am trying to eat the low fat stuff now tho.
don't eat much else dairy, milk on me cereal, always skimmed.
just wondering if something like a meal replacement diet would help me shift the few pounds of gut thats just annoying me. its quite evident because I'm quite short too!
maybe something to just speed up the metabolism so i don't feel so totally f**ked after kung fu sessions.
any help is much appreciated.
