brummielad i don't think you're eating enough protein

you go too long exercising without enough protein your muscle mass will waste away along with fat. i'd add some turkey/fish/chicken/meat or protein shakes in that diet if I were you.

can of tuna is the best food you can eat i'd say.

25 p from lidl

140 calories, 32 grams of protein, eat 3 cans of that a day an *text deleted* the next arnold.

and you'll also be consuming dangerous levels of mercury if you do that for more than a week. chicken's good as it contains all the amino acids you need to repair muscle tissue

Too many BBQ's can give you cancer, eating salmon more than 1's a month can give you cancer e.t.c. I don't bother listening to it anymore. Live life how you want.

loz think you've misread the previous posts mate:
the difference being between what you said and what i said of course is that mercury affects the nervous system and eating 3 tins a day for a week would give you enough mercury to cause irreparable damage to the nervous system, i'm not saying don't eat tuna, i'm saying don't eat 3 tins of it every day for seven days......
anyway that cancer thing's utter b*llocks, we all have cancer. right now. every single one of us. it's when the cancerous cells get out of control it's called "cancer" the BBQ thing etc is only that charcoal is a carcinogen (can cause more cancerous cells to form) as is nicotine and as with nicotine etc it take years for any damage to be caused, not days.

loz, pay attention mate- too much mercury affects your nervous system, meaning you can't join the marines, i'm not saying you'll die....

Your talking about eating HUGE amounts of tuna to even slightly damage your nervous system. You need around 4-5 can's a day to cause damage.

firstly loz you haven't looked into this properly yet. I have no more than 5 months ago written an essay for the degree i was studying (psychology and NEUROSCIENCE) on this exact topic (mercury in diet, not tuna specifically) and trust me there's loads of contradictory "evidence" one way or another.
To average it out though, if you eat 3 cans of tuna a day you are potentially consuming 120 micrograms of mercury per day (depending on brand), 8 times higher than the safety level for a weekmultiply that over one week and you have consumed 56 times more mercury in a week than the safety level, assuming you're training for the marines you'll be training for 4-6 months prior to RT so during that period you will have consumed an inordinate amount of mercury to levels that could affect balance, cognition and muscular reflexes all of which would hinder your progress through RT.
my point, at the start, which i'm guessing you must have missed, wasn't don't eat tuna, it was don't eat 3 tins a day for the entire time you're training as not only will you expose yourself to higher levels of mercury than recommended but chicken provides all of the amino acids required anyway... so if you're going to eat anything 3 times a day eat chicken.
since it was his post that kicked this off, what on earth happened to smallzy and his posts?

also you may want to add more running into your training, by the looks of it you do 1 maybe 2 runs a week as you go to the gym.. if you go to the gym i hope your doing 1.5 on a tredmil and you need to run about 3 times a week minimum to improve your fitness and lose weight. long distance runs can be good for losing weight but your going to want to do short fast runs more often. i personally hated short fast runs but i soon found they weren't as boring as long distance runs.
