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...

Keto VS Calorie Deficit

I've done keto before and it helped me lose fat a little, but I realise now that it wasn't working to it's full potential because I probably wasn't in a calorie deficit since I wasn't tracking. At the moment I'm just cutting with a calorie deficit (2000 cals a day) with quite a few carbs. Is it...

Vascularity

Does increased water intake decrease vascularity? I got a bit off track on the holidays and now back on track and drinking almost a gallon of water a day(twice as much i usually drink), but i also realized my veins barely show no more even though my weight is down.

Creatine on cut?

hey guys I'm half way through my cut and I'm thinking about trying pre workout. I have never used it before and the gold standard brand contains creatine. Should I take creatine during a cut? I know my weight is going to go up from the water weight.
