Yeah man, I generally get these:

Here you can see it in a meal: http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/8737/dsc00102sd.jpg

 

I get them from Holland and Barrett, cheap as piss, only £1 for a box of 4. Though they are thinner than most burgers, it still works out at fantastic value.

 

As a treat I also get these big bastard ones from my local healthfood shop. They are Redwoods so they should be easy to get

You can see what they look like for real here:

More expensive, I think they work out like £2.50 for a pack of two, so I don't get them so much, real nice though...

 

To clarify, in my diet right now when I say "burger", I literally mean that, i do not have a bap or bread, just the burgeriness. But normally I'd have them in a bap, my girlfriend has them in a sandwich.

 

EDIT: Found both items on goodnessdirect.co.uk

But there are lots of other burger-type things on there not tried them all

Yes buddy, gym once again... I'll tell you, this is day 5 in a row of going to the gym, and today I did not want to go. I was feeling a bit tired, had other things I wanted to do instead... but went anyway, and really sweated. I know my workouts might not look like much, and to some people maybe they are a doddle. But I do them with no breaks at all, it is a circuit and has cardio elements because of that, I go from one thing to the next leaving puddles of sweat as I go. Sitting on the bike at the end I just wanted to go home, but I feel good that I am sticking to what I said, 4 more days in the gym, let's do it.

 

10 minutes rowing machine

5 minutes cross trainer

dumbbell bench press: 30kg x12, x8, and then new PB 32kg x7! woop. So I guess I'll be using 32s from now

Crunches: 20, 10, 10, 10, 10

No-weight squats: 20, 20, 20

Hammer curls: 14kg x12, x10, x10

Push ups x20

Incline dumbbell bench press 20kg x8

5 minutes bike

 

Food:

4 burgers

kiwi

cupful of nuts

2 homemade burgers (burger mix, carrots, kale, broc, onion)

Protein shake

Cashew nuts

homemade popcorn with a little salt

Some kiwi, apple, grape and mango cocktail stick things

I have always found the easiest way to lose flab is to just count calories and plan when to eat, how many calories and what. May sound a bit obsessive but once you get it down it is so easy and simple and gives me TONS of energy. i also save 200 calories everynight for a treat of my choice . A bit of high intensity interval cardio is always great too but can also cause some muscle loss. Good luck with everything.

Thanks! Yeah, I am cutting way back on what I'm eating, but I haven't gone so far as to count calories yet. I'll stick to this for a little while and track progress, and if I don't get what I want I'll step it up.

 

The burger mix we get is this:

You can make it straight with just water, or you can add things to an extent and still keep the consistency good enough to shape

Wasn't feeling too good Thursday, I think I ate those chilli peanuts too late and they didn't go down right, and had a spicy bumhole in the morning. Anyway, Thursday is when we go to Loving Hut, so I guess diet kind of goes on hold for that, but actually I don't eat very much else on that day, since it is all you can eat at the place, so although it isn't optimum, in terms of calories I don't think I destroyed it

 

Loving Hut - rice, spicy tofu strips, stirfry with mixed vegetables and fake meat, sweetcorn, small serving of potato wedges

Protein shake

Burger

Carrot

 

Training:

30 minutes bike
