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...

I can't lose weight because I'm too busy to diet.

"I can't lose weight because I'm too busy to diet." Is being busy really holding you back, or are you just not making the best choices and using 'I'm too busy' an excuse? I can understand how being busy is a legitimate reason to not eat on a schedule, 4-5 times per day. Fortunately, weight...

Does steady state cardio really burn your muscle gains?

A lot of body builders aim for a "HIIT only" cardio routine because they claim that steady state or moderate intensity cardio has the tendency to also burn muscle, more notably their made gains.

Red face Keto diet doubt

I have read a lot about the keto diet but i have one doubt... All websites state that you will burn "fat" instead of carbohydrates. But they dont specify which fat: stored bodyfat, or the fat you are eating for energy, instead of carbohydrates! Even on a standard diet you burn bodyfat, so...
