    Think about it this way: this first 15 pound of muscle you'll ever gain happens 50% faster than the rate at which you "ordinarily" gain (I made those numbers up of course). So if you go on a steep...

    Doesn't matter a whole lot. Personally I'd eat at maintenance for 6 months, make gains, cut later.

    But say that cut takes 2 months. You could as easily cut for 2 months now, then eat around...

    Deficit to lose fat. Maintenance or tiny surplus to "bulk" (and hold fat constant).

    Oh come on. Stop repeating pop-culture nutrition myths. This one in particular is completely ridiculous. See here for a good explanation: http://metabolicperfection.com/the-breakfast-myth/. Or...

    This is true, and it's why the concept of "bulking" barely even applies to a beginner. They just need to eat with good macros and train hard for awhile.

    No mate, you want to go with about 170g protein, 70g fat, the rest from carbs. See #1 below.

    1. Calculate your calories and macros

    Yeah, you need to gain muscle. Understand though, that as a beginner, you don't need much of a surplus, if any at all, to make solid gains. Just eat a shade over estimated maintenance, and don't...

    Or you could go with 1700 calories of food. Or 2200 or so, which is more sustainable.

    That's definitely been my experience. Isolates make for a poor texture (sandy) and the flavor is poor (sort of a chemical taste on 3 different isolate brands I tried). Blends do much better. Phase...

    You're losing fat, but want to lose it faster. The answer is to eat less. Read the thread I linked. Keep protein and fat at minimal targets, vary carbs according to your calorie goal.

    Nutrient timing doesn't amount to much, but one meal a day is pretty extreme. It's fine for fat loss, but everything we know about muscle protein synthesis suggests that it's not optimal. A couple...
