Struggling with protein

I'm 5'3, and currently weigh 218lbs (down from 226lbs a few weeks ago, so all is going well). Per the TDEE calculator, I've been aiming for 1500 calories comprising 151g protein, 67g fat, and 75g carbs (40/40/20). Per my earlier post, I'm falling a little under on calories, and averaging more...

Unhappy Really need help and guidance

I am working really hard since 2 months but instead of losing weight I am stuck. I am gaining muscle mass and not losing a single fat mass. I am on strict diet which comprises more proteins. I am also doing intense cardio and weight training, 6 days per week.

Cutting time??

So I've been bulking (first time) for over the past nine months and am now at the point where I'm hating the flab I'm feeling. I'm hoping for some guidance as to whether or not I should cut and if so how I go about it as my calories are still low. I've worked my way up from 800 calories and am now...

Unhappy Ugh, help! Lost so much progress from being sick and not eating.

I have worked very, very hard to get where I am today with my physique. I am not a competition bodybuilder, but I lift weights religiously to avoid being as flat as a board. I am not naturally blessed with curves, or the ability to gain muscle quickly, and retain it. It took 3 years of playing...

Would you workout when you've had 4.5 hrs of sleep?

I was out for Halloween last night and slept around 4:30am, woke up at 9 to get ready for class. My workouts aren't that intense right now: mostly cardio and my weights aren't that heavy (definitely not one of a 'gymrat's'; I'm just starting to workout regularly). Would you workout today?

When I don't have my headphones...

What is it about the times I forget my earphones, or my batteries die, I can't really put my finger on why, but I often have a really satisfying workout. I wouldn't knowingly go to the gym, willingly without something to listen to, and a way to listen to it. But maybe I should try it more often.
