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...

Do you put value in jeans size?

Title boys. I'm 6 feet and I won't let myself go above 32x32. When they are tight that's my cue to cut back and up my workout intensity. Do you guys do the same or do you think it's a bad metric?

How much muscle will I lose going from 20% to 10% BF?

I've been slowly cutting and based on the calculators I've used, I'm somewhere between 19 and 21 percent body fat. I've recently bought some size 32 pants and it feels good to be back at this size after over 10 years of buying 36+. My goal is to cut to 10ish percent and maintain. I want to get my...

So ever since getting to college I have slowly noticed my composition change. Over the summer I was about 213-215lbs and fairly lean. (will attach pic) After 5 months of college, and yes I drank a fair amount but I would also try to eat under or around maintenance usually hitting 2600-2800 cals out...

Losing too much lean mass

TL;DR: From BuiltLean pictures, I estimated my BF at 33%, so I did a 1000 calorie deficit. Once I was below 30%, I reduced to 900. Now being closer to 20% I have changed it to 700 calories. I was losing about 1.5lb/week, however my lean mass went from 137.3 in August to 133.6 as of last week...

Sharing a bulk/cut calculator I built

For work, I spend most of my day doing analysis and forecasting. As this is how my mind works, I started playing around with ideas about forecasting the results of different bulks and cuts to try to both get an idea of how long it should last, and when I'm likely to hit certain goals (nobody wants...

Smile Why is it harder for women and men over the age of 30 to lose weight

The reasons why it’s so hard can vary from person to person, particularly due to the role of genetics in weight gain. But reduced metabolism in older age is a major factor, as are changes in hormones, particularly in women going through menopause. And lifestyle-related factors play a role as...

Am I Doing Anything Wrong?

I'm 5'9, 140 lbs., 23 years old, male, and about 15-25% body fat. My long-term goal is to be lean and muscular, but my short-term focus is getting lean, before getting muscular. I had been eating an average of about 2500 calories, 160g protein, 65g fat, and 320g carbs for several months but I...

What dietary changes should I make for this plateau?

I'm aware I shouldn't really pay too much attention to the scale, but my waist size hasn't reduced much since my cut has begun. (Lost 7 lbs)(Not actually 52, teenage lifter) I bulked up to 163 lbs, gaining a satisfactory amount of muscle but fat alongside. I decided to then start a cut, lowering...

Skinny-fat need advice

I was about 21 in 2009 and started training for the first time in my life. I started out with calisthenics and then fell into the abyss of ****arounditis.

Bloating Has Wreaked Havoc On Me

12 sets of 100 jump ropes vs 6 sets of 200 jump ropes, which is better?

12 sets of 100 jump ropes vs 6 sets of 200 jump ropes, which is better? I used to do 10 sets of 8 weighted sit ups and 12 sets of 100 jump ropes. Now I do 10 sets of 9 weighted sit ups (i do sit ups faster with this weight 22lbs now, so it takes the same time) and 6 sets of 200 jump ropes. Extra...

Lean Enough to Bulk?

Based on my pics, am I lean enough to bulk without getting too fat? Goal of my cut was 15%, and I dropped from 200 lbs to 169 lbs currently. I was down to 165 in November, but honestly, I eased up a bit from Thanksgiving to Christmas-time. Got back on track the past 2 weeks to try and position...
