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...

At what bodyfat is a 500 cal deficit too big?

Does eating before you sleep make you gain weight?

I usually eat it one meal (1500 calories) at night time before I go to bed. I have found that coffee for me is a great appetite suppressor so I drink it every morning and it makes me last through the morning and afternoon before getting in my big meal at night time. I am wondering if this will make...

Fasted cardio vs Fed cardio(only BCAA) vs Fed cardio(whey) vs Fed cardio(Carb whey)

Firstly, there are many people will ask whether they should drink whey or bcaa before fasted cardio.
