Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some...

Efficacy of occasional all-day fasts

Hi. I am going to start tracking calories more and placing less value on exercise, as I find it is easy to over-estimate your caloric expenditure through exercise. So, RMR + a conservative allowance for exercise makes sense, before focusing predominantly on caloric intake (obvious stuff). I was...

Before I continue my full-year diet

Before I start, I had a cheat week because of family visit, I just feel like fasting for two or three days and then I will continue to diet healthily.

Change in weight but no change in waistline

I have only just started cutting. Immediate water weight, glycogen loss, etc. was worth circa 5lbs. Adjusted post-start weight was 181.1 lbs, and I am now down to 178.9 lbs. Neck size is basically the same, which is good. Waistline however is the same at about 34 inches. I am not measuring other...

How to make cutting more enjoyable?

I want to drop about 5lbs of fat to be at my desired goal of 11-12% bf. So I don't need an extreme fat loss protocol, but I still need some strategy. The thing is when I cut, I still lift heavy at the gym and I feel that this hurts my cutting process and causes me to overeat. If I don't overeat, I...

A mess of a man - M(48) 230 - 1lb a week….

Grew up thin, ballooned out in my 20's. Mostly due to a penchant for gluttony, sloth, addiction to food and general sleepiness. Hey, I'm a writer so I can be forgiven for sleeping all day and trying to party all night? (sigh) Suppose the plague has given us all time to do things we might not...

Retaining muscle mass during a cut

Gyms closed again in my country, but I haven’t completed my cut yet. Are weighted pull ups and push ups enough to keep on exercising and retaining muscle mass at the same time?

So i've been cutting calories for the past 4 months, i've dropped from 190 to 155 (I'm 5'8). I've been maintaining a pretty strict caloric deficit to get to this point but my question is mostly about how long I should keep this up before putting increasing my calorie intake and putting on...

Big whoosh at the onset of maintenance - hormones?

Twice in a row now, as soon as I switch from ~12 weeks of consecutive calorie deficit (over 500 daily) to a maintenance phase to drop diet fatigue, I lose 2-3 lbs as soon as I increase calories. This weight stays off the entire duration of the 6-8 week maintenance phase. Common sense would have...
