Yeah some of those sound like good alternatives. I hit the gym for 2 hours a day, about an hour n a half of weight training, and then i do half an hour cardio. Im down to 212 from 220 in the past 2 weeks, and I've noticed a little bit in the ripped department, which is my main goal. To keep some size, but get more ripped.
But the problem is, I have a good healthy meal plan, but its basically the same damn thing everyday. I have say Oatmeal and fruit in the AM, Tuna on whole wheat for lunch, immediately after the gym ill have my protein shake, and then a chicken breast and maybe some brocolli. I just find it challenging to mix things up. The Beef and Bean chilli sounds good.
I wanted to get some protein bars but everything I see is so damn expensive, any tips?
