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...

Activity level when finding maintenance calories?

So I've heard that to build muscle while losing fat you gotta enter into a 5-20% deficit (100-500 calories) I've calculated my maintenance cals using the tdee calculator website when I entered that I was sedentary and it was 1850 calories. When I entered that I did light exercise 1-2 days a...

Adaptive TDEE Calculation based on weight and calories logs

Advice on bulking/cutting

I’m 6’ 4” 215 lbs 23 years old. I’ve been lifting for about 8 months now but I was focused heavily on cardio to shed some fat (lost 20 pounds). I regularly ride a peloton bike and it’s kept me in great shape (compared to where I was before) but I definitely need to put on muscle. I’m kind of in a...

Bulk, Cut, Maintain, Recomp?

Hi, Wondering what I should? Want to build more muscle mass but worried I’ll get too fat. A bit of body fat doesn’t bother me, I’m happy enough with it atm and can live with it aslong as I’m gaining muscle. Should I just go for a lean bulk and cut later when I’ve built more muscle or maybe...

Cardio after weight training

Through quarantine I have noticed that I have put on a bit of fat. I can’t really see my abs anymore even though I have gotten bigger. I was thinking of doing a 30 minute run after every weight training session in hopes of this reducing my body fat. Will this help with that? Also will it reduce my...

Does fasting cause muscle loss?

I usually have one meal a day because I enjoy having one large meal in one sitting than splitting them at different times. It’s more filling. If I’m in a surplus at the end of the day, and I’m fasting for 23 hours, would my body start breaking down my muscle if I start feeling hungry? Would...

Efficacy of occasional all-day fasts

Hi. I am going to start tracking calories more and placing less value on exercise, as I find it is easy to over-estimate your caloric expenditure through exercise. So, RMR + a conservative allowance for exercise makes sense, before focusing predominantly on caloric intake (obvious stuff). I was...
