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...

question about insulin sensitivity, GDA and muscle loss

I've read that GDA will activate the AMPk of cell( e.g. berberine ), then increase the insulin sensitivity. I have following questions: 1. If I increase all cell's insulin sensitivity, then all cell will increase uptake of nutrient. Does it mean that fat cell can also increase nutrient...

Is there some supplement to inhibit the absorption of saturated fat acid?

I know there are GDA to lower insulin such that you can partition more carb to muscle other than fat cell. Therefore GDA tackle the problem of carb. I'm curious about whether there is supplement to inhibit the absorption of saturated fat acid or inhibit the storage of free fat acid to fat cell.

Can you maintain strength and still lose mass?

In my last few cuts I never lost strength on the pulls or legs, only the presses. So this time I broke with the common wisdom to keep doing your standard routine, only dropping volume when needed. This time I'm doing a Frankenstein routine where I press every workout and do skeleton volume on...

At what bodyfat is a 500 cal deficit too big?

I'm sure absolute weight and fat content also matters. Asking because I remember from reading last year that the deficit needs to shrink because you literally have less fat stores to draw from as you slim down. 500 deficit is probably still good to 10% right? So somewhere in the single digits it...
