Drinking will destroy our gains and annihilate protein...

Most people should do maingaining/lean bulk phases, and only cut if obese?

Alright this may spark some controversy, but hear me out first. I'll use males as an example. I think they should alternate between maingaining and lean bulking phases depending on a bodyfat range of 12-20%. With maingaining, you eat at maintenance calories and with a 'lean' bulk, you eat at a...

Nice review highlighting the benefits of exercise over weight loss for obesity

This should hopefully balance out concern of anti-exercise sentiment from several recent threads regarding an increase in exercise leading to a less-than-expected increase in TDEE. Regardless of that and weight overall, there are great benefits to increasing fitness levels (at any BMI). ...
