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...

Thumbs up A great way of maintaining your weight...

There are many people who, after significant weight loss, fail to maintain their new lower weight over a longer period of time. They usually slowly go up and then have to do some sort of dieting once again to drop several pounds. It's just down, up, down, up, etc. If you love eating A LOT, but...

Anyone ever exercise really intense to lose weight fast? Did you keep the fat off?

I mean with a proper diet as well. By intense I mean you were working out more than usual, maybe doing cardio twice a day, or increased the hiit intervals, worked out longer or harder than usual. Basically the type of training you see celebrities do where they workout several times a day on a...

Can you cut weight and fat by only doing push-ups and eating right?

To get lean, you must burn calories and eat fewer calories. Doing pushups is a terrible way to burn calories. It does but not very many. The pushup uses the muscles in your arms and chest. These are small muscles and tire easily. A very poor way to burn lots of calories. You want to use big...
