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...

"Can't burn fat till glycogen is empty" myth

I've read plenty of people post that you must empty your glycogen before you can lose fat. I'll explain why that is a dangerous myth. Your body won't burn fat during a blood sugar spike, such as after a big meal or eating a candy bar. And that is not a problem. You can burn the sugar before it...

So I have been clean bulking since June (almost 5 months). My strength has increased considerably. I gained about 15 lbs. I realize I accumulated some fat along the way, but I'm not too bothered about that as I'm a pro at cutting. I still fit into smalls/mediums and my waist is below 30 inches. ...

Calorie counting short cuts.

How meticulous are you at calculating all your macros and micros? I had been estimating most large roma tomatoes as 30 cal, grapes as 4 cal, sunflower seeds as 9 cal per gram, sweet potatos as as 1 cal per gram. I've since gotten more accurate: Yams are 6 cal per 5 gram, and sunflower...

Can intense bicycling preserve quadricep mass during a cut?

I've got knee problems and am prepping to do a cut. I don't want my quads shrinking. But the only way I can use more weight on my knee is if I don't go down far or if I use assistance once down far. Bicycling seems my best bet, and I can get them burning. If I lose 0.7% of my body weight per...
