    You have no muscle.

    Train very hard, eat well (lots of nutritious, healthy food), live a clean and healthy life.

    Come back in 2 years and we will reassess.

    So my lunch is normally a chicken breast and a packet of Mexican uncle bens rice. Those rice packets seem to have 250 calories! Seems a lot?

    If this is the microwave packet, they actually have around 400kcal. They are actually 250g packets. They have around 290kcal from carbs, 70kcal from fat and around 40kcal from protein.

    That's more like 250cals per serving which is half a packet
    If you're eating a full packet its probably closer to 500cals
    It's not just plain rice is it?
    Fats, salt, preservatives and flavourings all add up
    Much better to just cook your own

    Yes it’s from the packet.

    shall I just buy normal brown rice from Tesco’s?

    Ok to boil night before, leave in fridge over night and then reheat in microwave the next day?

    Yea, if you've ever had a Chinese, you've likely had reheated rice.

    Yes
    Brown or white
    Most people find white rice digests better
    I cook mine and keep in the fridge for a few days no problem

    Do yourself a favour and get white rice, not brown. Boil in the bag is easiest and isn't any more expensive than loose rice.

    Stop focusing on food and lift some weight. Seriously you need to just train properly.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Remember I am trying to gain slight muscle / be lean

    I’ve been told to reduce my cardio. I used to love doing cardio.

    I have been quite strict on my diet. If I wanted to have a big cheat meal, the next day I feel guilty. So should I smash the cardio as an extra, or smash the weights even more?

    Thanks
