    I make Yorkshire puddings using extra thick cream diluted with water, three eggs, 3 X 1/2 cups of bread flour - for decades I followed my mother's recipe, but I have to say - mine is better.

    I had roast beef and home made Yorkshire pudding for dinner yesterday - really enjoyed it.

    You should be able to eat any meat, fish, seafood, eggs, cheese and other dairy, plus low carb veges and fruit (usually berries do the trick) and using a meter to check your levels helps a lot.

    Look at the nutrition panel on the back of your food packets. Also there's a useful book called 'Carbs and Cals' which shows you a plate of food in different portion sizes and guides you with the amount of carbs in the food. 'Carbs and Cals' is also available as an app if you have a smartphone.

    Also, just go to Google and start typing carbs in ****** etc and you will quite often find that it will provide you with a calculator like this,

    If you really want to do this at home then maybe think about resistance bands...

    They are available from e-bay and Amazon as well as a host of other places. But I'm seeing some alarming stories appearing on the web about Brexit related import duties so be sure to note where you're buying from. There are various exercise videos available on Youtube also.

    Or bodyweight. No equipment needed unless you are doing pull ups. Plenty of example exercises and routines on YouTube.

    I use four things:

    1. Body
    This is so overlooked as it seems old hat. I do 4 of this type. Everyday first thing often before leaving the bedroom, 50 good form push-ups (a good hangover habit from a push-up challenge). When it is too late to do a gym / home gym I would do central squats, split pulse squats and jump squats. Skaters.

    If these are done from a beginner status to over a long period of time absolute failure 3 times a week, significant gains can be made. These can be done fast or slow (slower is harder with good form).

    2. GYM
    Barbell squat, Barbell Deadlift and Bench Press mainly. Everything else I can do at the end of a workout.

    3. Home GYM
    Barbell squat, Barbell Deadlift, Trap bar deadlift and Bench Press (only bench to the same weight as the gym). Rowing machine, heavy battle ropes, dumb bells

    4. X3 Bar

    All of these I use interchangeably and smarter these days as not to over do it. I take no prisoners and listen to my body, if I do a silly deadlift and feel my hamstring through a lazy technique, I move on (no longer 25); injuries I now avoid at all costs, so I can work out tomorrow. If I had to choose 1 of the above for life, it would be the X3 Bar hands down:
    1. Portable (I have even taken this on holiday) and in the summer on walks
    2. Full workout in its own right, and or adjunct to gym
    3. Easier (in my view) to train to failure than bodyweight only (I find it mentally easier)
    4. Legs, chest, biceps, back, shoulders
    5. Get a pump which feels great
    6. Suitable for any age (the bands are suitable for teenagers to pension age)
    7. Does not hurt connecting tissues / joints
    8. Can learn the correct form and techniques for barbell deadlift and squat
    9. Resistance and Cardio
    Some would say why not just use bands which are much cheaper. The easy answer is loading and weight equivalent. If I am doing bicep curls with standard bands, I would have to do maybe 3 times as many to get fatigued, whereas with the middle band hooked up to the X3 Bar I can break myself at 10 reps. Similarly with the Elite Band. With standard bands I estimate you can imitate a 20 - 40 kgs deadlift, but the X3 Bar is around 150 kgs. In short if you total the cost of all the equipment to work your systems, the shareability with your friends and family it is ridiculous value. For balance Ben Pakulski, a true body builder does not rate it, but he is Olympia / Arnold Classic standard; for us mere mortals it is the bomb (no affiliations (yet...) or other links).
