Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum recently, 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 online 'trainer' who's only trying to scam their $$$. ...

A year long bulk over and I just seem to have got fatter?!

I’ve followed a beginners programme off here down to every last detail. Increased my lifts vastly and also gained 20lbs throughout the bulk. All I seem to be left with is a fat midsection (I literally looked pregnant the other day when I relaxed my stomach). I don’t know where to go from here? Any...

Long slow cut, need advice

OK, so I've been on a really long and slow cut ( I think a year now ) in which I lost about 25 + LBS. Went from 185 lbs to 160 right now. I am 5'11. Problem is, I still think I am not done yet. I am a lot slimmer, got some complements on losing face fat and overall fat loss, but I still got some...

First time cutting, need advise/tips

I've been bulking for about 38 years now, and once I finish up on the StrongLifts 5x5 program, was planning to do my first serious cut since boy scouts taught me that pocket knives are really sharp. I'm probably just over-thinking things, but have a questions I was hoping others might be able to...

Weight loss near lower BF%

Just curious, when getting into a lower BF% does your body try to "hold" on to your weight more dramatically? What I mean is when you lose fat, a lot of times its replaced by water and you don't notice the weight loss. Is this more likely at a lower body fat percentage? I.E, are you more...

questing about body size(not sure where to put this

Ok I feel like a idiot for posting this but my question is it normal for body measurements to get smaller even with still making gains? example my chest size lost about a half inch but I'm lifting more now then I was the last time I measured. I assume it's fat I'm losing but I'm still confused with...

Currently enlisted into the army. On some days we are required to do very light pt but most of the days we are sitting around not doing anything.

How long for body weight to normalize after a refeed day?

For this cut, I've been refeeding on Sundays, then do my weekly weigh-in Monday morning, not realizing that I may actually be recording false weigh ins. I would guess at least a couple days, and not overnight? What do you guys think?

Building muscle and losing fat...can it be done?

I am 5'10, id say around 70kg and I have belly fat and small moobs and little muscle mass. I can't afford to go to the gym but what I've started doing is tracking my calories using the...

Cutting - gaining muscle and losing fat?

I'm about 28% BF (5 foot 5 190 lbs or 67 cm 86 kg) I have a good amount of muscle beneath all of my fat because i've been lifting on and off for the past 3 years. They say if you lift weights, you would NEED to eat at a caloric surplus to build muscle right? So if i'm on a caloric deficit,...

Do stretch marks get more visible after exercising?

I been having stretch marks for quite a few months now on my bicep/triceps. They're usually red/pinkish still and some are fading to that white colour by now. Got home like an hour ago after 2 hours and 30 minutes of rugby and I looked at my stretch marks - the colour seems to be a very dark...
