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...

How often do you have to lift in order to preserve muscle while cutting?

I'm doing OMAD with about a 1200 calorie per day deficit and I'm concerned about losing muscle after my winter bulk. During my winter bulk I was doing a 3 day split hitting each muscle once per week. Would continuing this be enough to not lose any muscle gains during my cut? Or should you be going...

How much does your waist size fluctuate day to day? (25% BF + only please)

I have been watching my waist and I could just be horrible at measuring it but it seems like it can move up or down up to an inch every day, thus increasing BF% and decreasing BF% according to the body fat waist calculator by several percentage points. Is this true? I am sick of my huge waist :(
