    So we're in Spring, working 8-6.30 makes it hard to go to the gym, but it would be nice to get leaner.

    Anyone have any 'clean' foods to recommend.

    Ideally high energy too to stop me feeling sleepy as I also have lots of studying to do.

    Would really appreciate suggestions for healthy snacks!

    "Working 8-6.30 makes it hard to go the gym"?...... So 14 hours in the day when you're not at work but no time to go the gym for an hour? People like you make me laugh

    Yeah, because sleep is just totally optional of course.

    What? Working 8-6:30 is a long day. Especially as OP didn't state how long it takes to commute etc.

    Get your chicken breast from Muscle Food, great value and cheap. You can buy 5kg of chicken (no added water or any other junk) for £20 I think. It's not British Chicken, but it's chicken nonetheless.

    Big bags of spinach for £1 at most supermarkets, eat it raw. It's a lot more filling if you don't steam/boil it.

    Wholemeal Bagels. Pack of 4/5 for about £1-1.67. Good carb/protein content and very filling.

    Thanks MountKimbie and Forest Shadow for your replies. I just want to eat cleaner.

    And for the poster who I made laugh...try holding down a solid full time job, having to cook meals for yourself and then clean, and then fit in studying on top of that, whilst also going to the gym.

    I won't go to the gym if I can't consistently go, there's no point if you want to see results, so I'd rather cut crap out and at least maintain/lose small amounts of weight slowly as we come towards the summer months.

    Is your goal to be healthy, to lose weight or both? Unsure on what to suggest without knowing.

    If you just want to lose weight what food you eat doesn't matter, it's how much you eat.

    If you want to be healthy just eat a balanced diet and more fresh fruit and veg, there's no big secret or special ingredients.

    But of both really. Being healthy should lead to weight loss

    Nope, calorie deficit leads to weight loss.

    You can eat the healthiest, cleanest, organic and home grown food in the world and still be fat if you eat too much of it.

    But in all seriousness though, just eat more fruit and vegetables. Avoid eating foods jacked full of sugar and other crap and you'll be fine.

    Haven't taken into account getting to and from work, plus I imagine OP will want some dinner, that takes time... plus sleeping...

    I guess theoretically you could conjure up an hour if you forsake all leisure time but holy crap dude.
