Ive heared lots of things about spice and chilli helping your metabolisum and weight loss. Im pretty addicted to nandos peri-peri and have started to buy cheaper other branded peri-peri sauce, basically a sauce with birds-eye south african chillies, the hot and extraextra hot are the best tho And a nice flame grilled chicken breast in a chilli marinate is always a healthy meal packed with protein and with a few veg on the side

The sauces are loaded with calories and carbs, make your own. Much nicer with a fresher taste.

What are you doing at the gym...if you do what are known as explosive burnout workout...work out legs, chest and shoulders in 1 work out, no more than 30 minutes total. (Google search the workout to tailor it to your needs).
You will burn up to 50 calories more per hour for up to 48 hours after your workout! So a total of 2400 calories additional to your workout over 2 days. That's 2/3 of a lb in weight loss!

Apparently drinking very cold water increases your metabolism as your body has to work hard to raise the temperature of the water to body temperature

Considering we had a weekend in London I am impressed that I have lost another 4 1/2 lbs.

I tend to do around 10min on a moderate working up to high intensity on the rowing machine as a warmup then treadmill 20mins starting around 6KMph for 3mins then abit faster then around 11KMph for about 10min then cool down to a fast walk/slow jog then sprint a little again until the time is up at 20min, on a tired day I will just keep fast walking around 6.5KMph on a heavy incline which feels easier and burns a little less but still gets my heart rate up to around 160bpm.Then the machine will cooldown for around 4mins to decrease my heartrate (using HRM on machine). Ill often do some cross-trainer for 15mins or cycle at a hard intensity.

Lat pulldowns 35lbs
Bench press 45lbs
Seated press 40lbs (find this harder then bench)
Peck deck 35lbs
Abdominal crunch 156lbs
Started to add pull-ups in there and im using machines rather then free weights as im often at the gym myself with no spotter for free weights.

Look at my workout regime about 10-15 posts back. The gym workouts are "Explosive" workouts. So far in 3 weeks I have lost a touch over 1st and I have only done the gym portion of the workout and not the aerobic

So does anyone have before and after pictures?

I'm now holding at around 10st 4lbs after starting at 13st 9lbs. I managed to keep up a fair amount of cycling (1400miles down since the end of July now!) and started to run on my off days with my friend. My diet remains pretty much the same as my previous post.
I'm starting to get told off for losing so much, but I'm still within the healthy BMI range (5,9 20.9BMI). At the moment I'm not too fussed about it as I know as soon as winter really hits my exercise will drop sharply so I'm unlikely to lose anymore.
I wouldn't mind putting some back on, but it needs to go on as muscle and not fat. That's something I didn't really have much of before but I haven't the faintest idea how to do so, short of joining a gym.
