    Yes at the moment I'm still in my fat burn. There will be a date when I reach my desired 10-12% bodyfat goal, then it's about being calorie neutral. So ensuring I have a balance of calories in calircal out.

    The key thing is consume less calories than You expend, you will lose weight!

    Don't hate, motivate

    I don't eat a diet of cake burgers and beers. That would be ridiculous. I have a healthy balanced diet, I live a very active lifestyle, which means that if I want to eat burgers cakes & drink beer, my diet allows it. It's also known as " if it fits your macros"

    You can balance your calories our across the week. So if today I eat 3000 calories, that's ok, I can have less Tomorrow and on Wednesday etc.

    My results speak for themself. As I said, I do this diet (lifestyle) and it works for me as I get to do all the things I love, including drinking beer.

    Plenty of info on this online or on YouTube

    Great response. Thanks

    Just a couple things I disagree with. 1) I like milk in my tea and coffee, so I have milk. You're only talking about 10-20 calories per cup anyway. 2) Carbs are ok, as are fats and other "bad foods" as long as you maintain the calories.

    I'm glad you're doing something you enjoy, to me that's the best diet lifestyle to have as otherwise you hate it and quit.

    It's strange how much I am enjoying it at the moment. I'm about 15 hours into a fast right now and starting to feel quite hungry, but it feels like there's a purpose to this hunger so it's completely manageable. Plus I know that I'm going to eat in 85 mins, so a clear deadline makes it easier too.

    I have milk in my tea and coffee when not fasting. It's only during the fast times that I have black tea and coffee.

    And I agree that carbs are ok and fats are ok. However, have a watch of the video I linked for comments on consuming fats and carbs at the same time - something to do with how your body absorbs more of the fat because of the insulin spike caused by the carbs. As I say, too much faff so I don't bother worrying about it.

    This is turning into a strange thread for a homebrew forum!!

    I've recently been diagnosed with diabetes and I'm on these tablets called Metformin. 4 a day and I'm away.... scoff and drink what I want. Dunno how the diabetes came about though, I'm 11st wet through, 5'10" and as fit as a fiddle except after sugar and carbs which used to put me flat on my back.

    I was told I was pre diabetic so I reduced carbs and sugar and increased exercise - bak to normal now - BUT it sounds like you are much further down the road than I was - but talk to your GP

    I love that we can expand into other areas in this forum.

    Google Dr Tim Noakes. He literally wrote the book on sports nutrition, but later debunked his own research. He will change your mind about sports nutrition, carbs and dieting.

    All 'experts' talk shyte. Look how the wheel has turned full-circle about things that are / were good or bad for you. Just eat and drink as you see fit, we aren't long on this earth and if one of the experts is right the best one can expect is an extra year or two during the adult nappy stage. No thanks.

    It's not the beer which makes us fat, but the kebab, pizza or fried chicken afterwards.
