This is a good thread to have for everyone to document their progress, feelings, questions etc, I have lost 10kg in the last few years and my body composition has changed drastically. I would just advise that you try to eat healthily and in a balanced manner because personally I find that as soon as you start cutting carbs for example, the second you add carbs back in, your body struggled to process it. By all means if it works for you then go ahead, if you find lower carb diets work for you then I'd personally use carb cycling which is essentially you have high and low days and your high carb days fall on training days where you are typically more active and your low carb days are on your rest/less active days. Helped me lose a load of flab.


Also as an aside, many family members have done things like slim fast and hated it because liquid calories don't fill you up and are a crap alternative to real food, and any weight lost on such a plan typically makes a reappearance a month or so later

If culprit are carbs, then some understanding of why your body craves carbs will go a long way in maintaining healthy weight. The biggest trigger for carbs is lack of good sleep. If you are not getting enough sleep, your body will crave carbs. If you are working out a lot, and not getting enough sleep, the carb craving will lay to waste any gains you've made.

Don't worry too much about your weight, look at the shape of your body and how your clothes feel.  Taking weekly pictures is a good thing to do.

Find exercise that you like and enjoy, do it with people, that helps keep you going.

Add in exercise where you can, use the stairs at work rather than the lift, walk to the supermarket rather than drive.

Don't be hard on yourself if you miss a day or two.

Good luck to everyone getting fit, it's not just for cricket but the rest of your life too!

Go smash next season!!!!!

Really enjoying this thread and is definitely another bit of momentum to help me get "back on it"

Last Jan i weighed just under 17s, i got down to 15'13 by April, but since then it has steadily gone back on, i';m now around 16'10 and i can really feel not only fat but unfit. I have always carried weight but have been relatively fit with it (good recovery times, decent stamina etc etc) but now i am simply not and i don't like it one bit.

I did Joe Wicks hit sessions, just using You tube and in combination with sensible eating it did work really well so thats what I'm going to get back too i think.

Like people have said, better getting on it early... i find it really easy to have reasons not to do it... so the sooner i decide to get on with it the better.

Read Mark's Daily Apple.  Look up Mark Sisson or Doug McGuff on youtube.  They will certainly take you to the waterhole but it's up to each individual whether they drink or not.

No booze, fizzy pop, salad at lunch, porridge in the morning, avoid carbs.

Have not noticed any difference apart from a bit more energy.

Now need to do some fitness.

I was 18st 8 at easter, started eating better and going to the gym, group training classes where we do 2 sessions of weights with a cardio finish then a really gassy session on a friday. I got down to just under 16st quite easily. Had a pretty bad September eating and drinking and a few lbs have crept back on. Back on it from yesterday, doing stuff at home as well as the gym. I also bought my daughter a new bike so we can go out on a weekend, she managed 6 miles on Sunday which isn't bad for only being 6!

My goal is to get another stone and a half off to get down to around 14st-14st7, that would be over 4 stone off total, which isn't bad

Have any of you weight-loss legends come across a link to any decent Home Workouts?   You know, the sort of thing where you don't need any fitness or gym equipment, but you can do a workout using chairs and the stairs and press-ups and all that malarkey?

I am working ridiculous hours at the moment and don't belong to a gym, so I was hoping to find something I could do in the evening or morning pretty quickly and simply but that worked muscles as well as cardio (not just 'Insanity' stuff).
