    While pretty much anything out there right now that claims to get rid of cellulite is bunk, there actually is a drug still in clinical trials that may have some benefit. How much, or how *safe* it...

    I weigh everything that goes in for total cal/macro count. Depending on recipe, I will divide by finished portion as fraction of recipe (think - meatloaf/lasagne), or I will measure the whole...

    Time. You are at a good place to build right now. If you devote that time instead to cutting further, you are setting yourself back months of time for building that base. But again, its up to you....

    This, careful. OP - as with any BB lift, you should be focusing on proper form over weight, especially as a newb. If your elbows are going all over the place, drop the weight. Personally, my BB rows...

    Kudos to you for recognizing whats going on, and buckling down to get yourself back on track! You have made wonderful progress, and yes we can't just "go back to old ways" and keep what we've worked...

    Toasting those badboys so the edge of the icing gets just a little caramelized is the ish... *sigh* (/cutting food p0rn thoughts, lol)

    Well with a 1k deficit, you would lose about 2lb/wk. That may slow down at some point during your cut, though. 15% isn't too hard to get to for a male (which I assume you are...), but you may adjust...
  • But just to reiterate that for the average...

    But just to reiterate that for the average dieter, there is *no* need for fancy shmancy diet tricks. A good, steady deficit is much easier to manage to one new to tracking intake, and 99% of the time...
  • Well, it's kind complicated, a structured refeed...

    Well, it's kind complicated, a structured refeed is not the same as a "cheat" day,which is more psychologically than physiologically helpful to a dieter. Refeeds tend to be done more frequently and...

    Yeah, I still bloat up a bit, but by day 3 I'm definitely leaner than before the refeed. I actually enjoy my horribly low carb days as I've been into sampling interesting cheeses lately :D

    OP, I...

    No, I have no issues. I just ate 1,093 *grams* carbs in 5 hours ;) Most people don't/can't eat like that, lol. And not all of it was "clean", but I kept my fat and fructose pretty low on this day....

    Haha, thanks. Yeah, I just know that if I massively refeed like that what to expect. I don't sodium restrict, just drink and my body takes care of it to get that there homeostasis back. Just don't...

    I don't compete for aesthetics, but do cut as far down as tolerable several months pre-big meet so that I have wiggle room for BW (and strength) to go up close to a meet and still have room to make...

    I regularly can have 10-15lb swings due to carbs (I hold water like a camel), and I love to document/track things. The following is after a big carb load and the 3 days it took to lose the associated...

    It's not that complicated. If you are eating "around" 2200 (and volume measurement/serviing sizes are *not* accurate), your tracking is off. You are likely eating at or above maintenance, and the...

    Were you cutting recently, and if so did you take time at maintenance first? I find that after a cut, hunger goes crazy high during maintenance, let alone a bulk while hormones stabilize. But with...

    I'm 5'6". After my first cut I got down to 126 lb and going up to maintenance found that it was just about 2450 (thought it was 2100 according to calculations, but was still losing once I upped...

    Unfortunately, your first trainer was blowing smoke up your rear. Competing isn't just taking an average girl off the street with no lifting history and having her lose weight, and magically there is...

    Well, I don't get out much aside from work/school and the gym. But when I do, it usually involves the kids. Took them to an amusement park this past weekend:
