Questions from the Community

  • What does everyone carry their prepped food in each day? I eventually want a Mealami, but given the price, it will be a Xmas present. Plastic bags look tacky, shopping bags are too big, and I haven’t found an insulated lunchbox that is big enough for an adult. I have maybe 1 handbag that would be big enough, but I don’t want food & drink containers in with my personal items
  • Hi everyone, I have a coffee around 07:30 on my training days. Then I train around 09:30. I don’t eat before I train. Should I? If so what? 
  • What’s something I can add to my daily water bottle to just give it a bit of flavour, lol?
  • Hopefully, someone can shed some light on this for me. I completed two workouts today (cardio and weights) as a result of this I have been starving all day. Is it OK to sometimes consume a little more on a big training day or just keep to my 2450 a day limit? I'm trying to shed as much fat as possible during the challenge. My watch says an extra 1000 burned however I'm sure that's not very accurate. Thanks, team
