Being organised and prepared is the key IMO.

Iíve been up and down weight pretty much all my adult life. Maxed out at 20st 17 years ago.
The lowest Iíve been is 13st 4oz it tend to stay around 15 most of the time. I feel normal/good weight is 14st for me.

Iíve spent the last couple of years around 14 ish due to eating well and lots of cycling (5k miles in 2018) Iíve not cycled as much the last year as Iíve been fishing more. Bad news for my weight as I could eat pretty much what I wanted when cycling 6hrs a week.

Iíve lost 1 1/2 stone since Feb by eating healthy home cooked food. Not really drunk at all (wasted calories) and still got plenty of fishing in.

I tend to do 24 or 36hr sessions and pre cook most before I go.

Breakfast - overnight oats with banana and almond milk

Lunch - chicken or egg salad/wraps

Dinner - usually cooked chicken with rice which I cook at home and eat cold.

I only take the stove for tea/coffee.

Itís amazing how much food we donít need. Last year Iíd easily eat a whole pack of biscuits, few packs of crisps, have a few beers and a takeaway. Probably 3 times the amount of calories I need and eat now. Pair that with sitting on my arse all day watching the water itís no surprise when weight gains.

Exercise is good for weight lost but diet is the thing to sort first. As said below, you canít train off a bad diet .

Again.....it does not matter what time of day you eat. Overall calorie intake is key.

Yes most are not....hence the issue.....people are consuming more calories than they burn off.

When calories are equated both low carb and high carb diets provide exactly the same rate of weight loss, proven time and time again in studies.

So yes if you eat excessive amounts of carbs, or fats, or even protein in total which puts you into a caloric surplus, you will gain body fat.


You don't "trick" the body into losing weight and yes....loading carbs to increase glycogen stores in your muscles to make them look fuller.

I didn't have to Google that mate.

Yes don't starve yourself eating healthy food and 1600 calories a day will lose you enough weight and still enough bulk of food to satisfy you. Too low a calorie intake will. Slow your metabolism to conserve energy and make you lethargic. A sensible diet and mild exercise will keep your metabolism at the correct level.

And if the glucose is not burned off it will be stored as fats. Hence most folk having a massive evening meal and are sleeping on it...

A quick google, after your glucose burst, which is fine if you are burning it off, most are not

A diet excessively high in bread, pasta, rice, soda and other carbohydrates is a major risk factor for fatty liver, which is marked by the abnormal accumulation of fat within a liver cell. After a meal, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, an immediate source of energy. Excess glucose gets stored in the liver as glycogen or, with the help of insulin, converted into fatty acids, circulated to other parts of the body and stored as fat in adipose tissue. When there is an overabundance of fatty acids, fat also builds up in the liver.

Complex carbs are the ones

Fast ones cause massive spikes in blood sugars

When you eat breakfast you're telling your body that there are plenty of calories to be had for the day. When you skip breakfast the message your body gets is that it needs to conserve rather than burn any incoming calories.

If your a bodybuilder and know your diet I guess you know how to trick your body into losing weight and then bloating up the muscles quickly before a competition

Is it true that if you cut your intake of calories too low then this can actually make you lose weight slower? I think I read that your body kind of goes into a starvation mode due to the lack of fuel, so it sort of hoards the fat reserves you have.

There really is no need to avoid sugar entirely, just be sensible.

Problem is when you tell someone they can't eat something they love......chances are they will sooner or later.....binge on it.

I'm into body building and often gain weight and lose body fat to a very low percentage. When someone sees me with a Mars bar they say... wow I didn't think you would eat that. You shouldn't be eating that etc.

I can....because I understand nutrition and account for it along side my otherwise nutritious diet

Eat low Glycemic vegetables and avoid sugar like the plague. Broccoli, cabbage , cauliflower, kale, Spring Greens. Basically anything green and leafy is likely to be low in sugars.

Carbs are not bad for you, 1 of the 3 macro nutrients required for a healthy balanced diet. The reason they are given bad rep is due to refined carbs like sugar, easy to consume a high amount of calories without being satiating. The right balance is key. no need to completely cut them out. Carbs are broken down in the body to glucose and stored in the muscles etc in the form of glycogen, which is the bodies primary source of fuel.

Not eating after 7pm is a myth, can you explain to me why eating after 7pm should be avoided? The reason people say this is because after 7pm at night is the time when People tend to sit in front of the TV and binge. Overall calorific intake is what matters....not the time of day.

Eating breakfast does not boost your metabolism. Studies show it makes no difference as to when or how often you eat. only total calories consumed.

Calorie counting on food packing is over simplified and incorrect.
I used to play American Football, and relied on my diet to keep me healthy and strong rather than using any supplements or protein shakes.

Fats, carbohydrates and proteins all provide calories, and energy, yet it is over abundance of fats (and carbohydrates) that make you fat, if you are not doing enough exercise to burn it off.


I tend to look on carbohydrates as 'instant energy', fats as long term energy. I know proteins provide energy as well, but if you use fats and carbohydrates as energy sources, then protein can be used as its best use of tissue repair and growth rather than supplying energy.


I try to eat healthy meals when I'm fishing, although I do have an occasional junk food binge on chocolate, sweet snacks and the like.

Summer my breakfast is brioche dunked in coffee, lunch is a tin of macaroni cheese or something similar and dinner is a pasta, couscous or rice dish with onions, peppers and mushrooms with a stir fried meat or fish. I have a couple of small jars of herbs and spices for taste as I stir fry them.

I'm married to a dietitian and could bore your ear off about how diets don't work and statistically you're more likely to gain weight on them.

Something she always stresses to me is to not think about cutting out what's in the food (e.g. calorie counting is way over simplified) and to start making sure that things ARE in there that you need. Simplistically that's making sure you're getting enough vitamins, fats, proteins and carbs.

To be honest if you make all of your food yourself (rather than jars and packets etc.) , put enough veg in there, and don't cook with too much oil, you'll be fine. Make sure you're topping your meals up with enough fruit and you'll be golden.

Also portion control! Actually weigh out your carbs before you cook to see how much is a serving and you'll be very surprised.

All these fad/whatever is trendy at the moment diets are a load of rubbish, yeah they work but nobody sticks to them so whatís the point.

Iíve got mates who try and lose weight and eat healthier, but they sit on their arse all day at work and do no exercise whatsoever. Iíve cycled as a hobby (and to work on and off) for years, plus a bit of running. I eat plenty of healthy food, but also LOADS of chocolate, crisps etc because I love them. Iím 43 and weigh under 11st, the same as I weighed when I was 20.

Keeping weight off long term through eating alone is very difficult, thatís why people constantly yo yo. Much better to incorporate exercise into your life, take up running/cycling/swimming/hill walking, which will also have a positive effect on your health and fitness.

Nothing wrong with carbs at all and they are needed in a balanced diet.

Seen many folks drop carbs completely, drop several pounds in body weight then put it all back on when the carbs are re-introduced.

Diet is an interesting subject for sure.
I would definately agree with the comments of avoiding any processed food if you are looking to lose weight.
I believe the vast majority of breakfast cerals etc. are generally unhealthy and loaded with sugar.
We been told for so long how bad Fat is in our diet.
But i believe Sugar is just as bad but probably even worse in the effect it has on the body.
I used to believe I ate a healthy Breakfast every morning of Porridge Oats and one Banana.
It was only after educating myself on foods which raised blood sugar levels and insulin resistance that it all became more clear as to why i was feeling bloated and gaining weight easily because of the foods i was eating.
I also found that by cutting down to 2 meals per day i didn't get cravings or feel hungry as often?!

Eating healthy and eating for weight loss are two separate things.

The main thing is not to go down the rabbit hole of fad diets. Understanding the basics of energy balance is key. Understand why a diet works. All diets that are aimed for weight loss all have one thing in common and that is to reduce calorie intake to a level which puts you in a caloric deficit.

energy in - energy out = energy balance.
Eat less calories than your body burns and you will use up your stores (fat).
Either by earing less calories or increasing your activity levels.

See it so many times people recommending certain diets but fail to grasp the fundamentals. Once you learn energy balance it makes things so much easier.

No need to cut carbs, no need to cut foods you enjoy.

As for eating on the bank, its all about prepping before you go. Get yourself some small tuperware pots, and chop up the veg, peppers etc before you go. make up pasta pots, salad etc. This way avoids the temptation to just go to the shop and buy pot noodles crisps and junk.

Some really good comments on this.

I have always been big since my late twenties, when I was 31, I lost 4 stone on a Keto/ Milkshake based diet in just over 4 months. Problem with it was it was not sustainable and I slowly put the weight back on.

I'm 37 now have ballooned again over the last two years... I have last 2 stone in the 9 weeks by just eating a clean diet and staying in calorie deficit, and doing a bit of exercise every day (20mins on a bike). Biggest benefit for me was to go to intermittent fasting - I now only eat in a 8 hour window between 10am-6am. Took a few hard weeks but now my appetite is conditioned to these hours so I don't really get hungry outside of them. I drink espresso in morning if I feel hungry as it supressed your hunger pains.

Agreed on keep it to whole foods and cutting out a lot of the carbs, but you do need some in your diet. Plus my I have increased my fruit & veg intake hugely. As someone who works in the food industry I would say the vast majority of food you eat is processed in some ways... just keep a eye on what's on the labels and nutritional declarations on the packs.

This year I decided I was going to have a bit of a lifestyle change and shed a few pounds as Iíd gained a bit.
I got the help of a personal trainer who put together a group of people who all wanted to do the same thing, he put a 12 week plan together and I set myself a goal of losing 2 stone. I went to a couple of his classes every week and stuck religiously to his food recommendations for the 12 weeks.

Essentially any processed food is a no go if you want to lose the weight, that includes anything you see in the supermarket that claims to be healthy like Go Ahead Bars Etc, itís all rubbish and will not help you lose weight.
You need to stick to Meat (No Bacon, Sausages, Burgers Etc) and no pre done flavourings like Cajun or Tikka Etc you can add these as spices etc yourself, Fish, Veg and Fruit. Cut out ALL white Carbs like White Pasta, Bread, Rice and definitely no potatoís. Stick with whole meal versions of the above. No butter or spreads on toast or bread, Iíve ended up refining my choices to Meridian 100% Peanut Butter, Marmite or a small amount of Honey on Wholemeal toast.
No alcohol at all, literally stick to Tea, Coffee (skimmed or semi skimmed milk) and water is all you should be drinking.

When I go fishing now I have toast with one of the above for lunch, I tend to have shredded wheat with nuts and dried fruit for breakfast and some kind of meat on the BBQ with some Cous Cous and Salad.
When it comes to snacks itís apples and bananas and also I like a bit of Beef Jerky or some Homemade Honey and Nut Bars.

Eating ďCleanĒ whilst on the bank is really not easy, especially at this time of year with having to keep everything cool, but it is possible you just have to really think about what youíre taking.

By doing the above and also regular exercise I lost 2st in 12 weeks, after the 12 weeks I eased off and am now following this for 5 days a week, the other 2 I do still think about my food choices but also have a beer or 2 too, Iíve shifted another 1/2 stone.

Picking your way through what you should and shouldnít be eating isnít easy but it depends on how much you want to lose the timber really.

It is true that i lost 20 pounds in about 6 weeks.
In the first week or so i probably lost around 5 or 6 pounds, a lot of that is "water weight".
Then it was probably an average of about 2 pounds a week or so, but you do lose less as you get nearer to your target weight as with any diet.
So when you think of it like that it's not extreme at all.
Cutting out junk, snacks and especially sugar makes a massive difference in losing weight.
I also reduced eating to only twice a day or even once a day, but to be honest i found eating only one meal per day very hard and not healthy for me.
To be accurate i was following Keto Diet principles, also eating a small amount of "low carb" vegetables (some carbs are allowed and are good for you) and regularly eating only 2 meals per day (intermittent fasting).
I was borderline Type 2 diabetic, liver function tests were "abnormal" and cholesterol level was high prior to the diet.
A couple of months after losing the weight i had a blood test at the Docs and although my cholesterol is slightly above average everything else is in the healthy range and no sign of Diabetes.

I had a discussion with a fitness instructor who told me Keto doesn't work, you have to exercise to lose weight blah blah blah.
I do quite an active job and when on the diet i did not do any extra physical work or exercise than normal and the weight dropped off me due to what i was eating.... and not eating!
I proved the Fitness Instructor wrong.

Check out Doctor Michael Moseley on YouTube, Low carb diets and Keto Diet etc.

Sorry for waffling on!

Most diets fail as they allow a cheat day or cheat weekend.

This plays havoc with ones metabolism and will mess up any weight loss diet.

You need to be in a calorific deficit daily and the daily calories consumed needs to be exactly the same and consistent over 7 days.

Seen many folks fail because they donít understand the basics.

A pound a week sounds good to me. Andyís 20lb in six weeks sounds terrifying!

I eat way too much crap when fishing. As the big 50 draws slowly nearer I know itís got to stop. The stupid thing is when ridgemonkey first came on the scene, they did loads of videos of some proper backside food. I watched plenty of them and thought, that looks nice, so does that one, then promptly stopped at the shop on the way to the lake and bought a basket of junk food instead.

Yes mate. But that includes dong a bit of training or exercise not just sat around all week lol

You need to stick to 5 healthy days and If you have a bad one in the week you need to punish yourself at the weekend and have one bad day.

Used have a massive breakfast, or a takeaway on an evening and a few beers. You need the clear days though

Itís also good to know about the food you are eating too, calories, carbs, fats and proteins, also the sugars and salts

On average a man needs 2,500 calories a day to maintain, and 2,000 to lose one pound of weight per week. Once you know what your eating you can plan or know this with what you have eaten. Add a bit of exercise and you can adjust the calories

As you get older carbs are the ones to watch, pizza!

Massive tip, eat breakfast, this gets your metabolism going, try to eat your last meal before 7pm and keep the carbs down, your going to sleep on it.

Itís the self discipline that matters and getting into a habit and maintaining it. As I said below, once you get into it the bad days feel bad.

Theres a reason woman diet on and off all their lives, yo, yo dieting, on the cream buns and junk, off the cream buns and junk

Healthy eating is well underrated but also get yerself checked out for diabetes and thyroid function. I lost 2 stone in 18 months due to type 2 diabetes and an overactive thyroid. It can go the other way just as quickly particularly if you are over 50. All resolved by better eating habits. All the sh1te we eat has an impact.

I like the sound of this. How does this work? You eat healthy say mon-fri but on a weekend you would still have a take away? That doesnít just ruin the five days of careful eating?

Keto works if you can stick to it I lost 3.5 stone in 6 months. I need to get back on it. My downfall is I like a beer and you can't drink beer on keto. Mind you I can't drink beer when I go fishing anymore either.😊.

I tend to do a large tub full of couscous with loads of salad items, cherry toms, olives etc and a bit of feta in it, then just have plain grilled meats, filling,easy and tasty. Search online for rainbow couscous and youíll get the gist

Packets of crisps, biscuits, pot noodles

Convenience food, itís a sin of the last few generations

I know a bloke, bit of an athlete, one of the fittest men I have ever know and he told me years ago. Never eat processed food, you donít know whatís in it. He was right

Try and get fresh ingredients and prepare things yourself so you know EXACTLY whatís in it. I used to be very fit when I was younger and still maintained great shape by eating right for 5 days out of 7 as I got older and I will guarantee you his, once you get used to healthy food the free days become boring and fish and chips will make you gip and you will prefer the healthy food

Itís drinks that do me and I can tailor my weight around this. I know what I drink and I know the consequences. I like to try and limit my days a week to around 3 and the amounts too. If I have it in the house I will drink it, just bring out my rations for the evening from the garage

Eat to live, not live to eat

Or as he used to tell me, you canít run on a bad diet

I have also been on a bit of a diet recently and have found the following to be ideal for me when im on the bank.

Breakfast - Porridge pot and a banana
Lunch - pre-prepared cooked chicken breast with steamed veg (and rice if you need some extra fuel)
Dinner - chicken stir fry (can buy the microwave packs if you're feeling lazy and just warm them up in a pan)
If i'm doing a few nights I will also bring a couple of apples and may a few go ahead bars for a little snack.

Stick with that and you wont go far wrong in my opinion. Good luck

Holy ****. You struggle to lose that much if you caught Dysentery. That doesnít sound a very healthy diet. Did you get Ill?

Iím currently trying to lose 1.5 stone by Christmas. Not six weeks!!!

By far my biggest food problem on the Bank is all the junk I eat. Packets of crisps, biscuits, pot noodles. Not anymore. Itís gonna be chicken and pittas for me from now on.

Or tinned veg, a lean pork chop and new potatoes

The list is endless. Guess itís personal preference

For a session I usually take along these lines

Cereal portions in plastic tubs ready for breakfasts, just add the milk when required

Porridge when itís colder

Home made chilli or curryís, empathise on homemade then you know whatís in them

Flattened chicken breasts, marinate them in a favourite rub or garlic and chilli etc. Have it with pitta breads and salad

Chicken fajitas, marinate the chicken at home, peppers and onions pre-chopped

Bacon is very healthy if you take the fat off it. Careful with the bread, wholemeal has a decent amount of protein per slice but itís the carbs, these take some shifting. Have it for my dinners, baguettes are nice too, bit of lettuce and tomato

Plastic tubs with salad, homemade

Fruit, love apples and tangerines, refreshing

I always have a couple of pasta in sauces in my session carryall, when the chips are down and Iím low on food always handy to have around, last for ages

Coolbox, keeps its fresh for a few days. Get your Mrs to sort it out for you before you go

I'm currently on the first week of my new diet as I've gone from 14 stone to 16 and half in 2 years lol and I need to start dropping the lbs. I mainly do 48hrs on the weekends and was wondering anyone could recommend any healthy meals or snacks that you currently take with you.
