Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---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...

Something weird 8 wks into cut

Everything was going great, 1-2 lbs a week. Down from 187 to 175. Obliques coming through nicely with no loss of strength. Then the past few days I developed this soft layer of fat around the sides and back of my waist, almost like water? It doesn't quite show up in pics, but I can see it enough...

How to calculate calorie deficit?

I'm assuming this would be the best sub-forum for this topic. So I'm still having trouble calculating calorie deficits. I can calculate the amount of food I eat down to a single calorie for the most part - that's not all that hard. What I'm having trouble with is how to figure out my calorie...

Belly fat (not the question you would expect)

So yeah, i can't get rid of that last bit of belly fat. Pretty common question, isn't it? And i know, the answer is as simple as "if you're not losing weight, you're not in a calorie deficit anymore". But my issue is slighlty different. Lemme explain: i never said i can't lose weight, in fact i'm...

Will butt sweat stop once I have lost weight?

I have started sweating a lot from my butt, all the time and it’s very annoying. It’s not hyperhydrosis, since it’s actually really hot down there after sitting for a while... I’m not that overweight, maybe 15kg more than I should be, but will this stop once I lose weight? Any experiences?

Protein intake when cutting

So I see so many different ways and advice for how much protein you should be taking while in a deficit. I see anything from .8 to 2g per lbs of Bodyweight. When it comes down to it does it really matter or do people suggest higher protein just because protein is most filling? Is there any actual...

Tracking progress on bulk

Starting bulk officially on Sunday. I’ll take a weekly average for weight. I usually take 1 pic a week on cut. While bulking will 1 every 2-3 weeks be better since muscle gain will be slower?
