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...

Why do people believe in "starvation mode"?

It doesn't. It goes against the very nature of your body. If you're an obese person, like me, you can eat as little calories as you can handle as long as they are mostly protein calories and you lift weights. I am 27, Male, 5 feet 7 inches tall and I weigh 238 pounds. When. I tell people this they...

Best way of finding new TDEE after completing a cut?

I want to focus on minimizing fat gain after my current cutting phase. I'm thinking after the cut is over I'll do this: 1) Eat at 200 below my previous maintenance (because I'll have lost 20 lbs) for 1 week 2) Add 200 calories and watch my previously fastest progressing lift (rows) for...

Arrow What percentage of weight loss is about metabolism/exercise/caloric deficit?

Those are the 3 things I can think of off the top of my head that are important in weight loss. If you can add more please by all means do. I would like you to add percentages to how it is important to weight loss. Thank you very much in advance and have a great day!

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?
