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...

Bulk or cut?

Hi there. I think I have body dysmorphia (don't we all!) and want some honest, third-party opinions. Attached are pictures of my physique. I used to be quite fat (~170 lbs at 5'4"), cut and was very skinny (~125 lbs), and have been training for the past few years. My current weight is ~140-145...

Losing fat while at caloric deficit and lifting

I've worked out in the past but stopped going 2 years ago until recently. About two months ago I started lifting again because I noticed I had accumulated a lot of fat over the years. I started with a decent upper/lower split workout plan going 4-5 days a week. I do light amounts of cardio 2-3 days...

Do you think doing cardio 4 to 5 days a week with HIIT is a good way to lose fat and build some muscle?

Anyone have experience with a mini-cut?

I recently (end of April) finished cutting from 186 to a low of 166, average 168, realistically ~170-172 after refeeding. Then I visited family for a week and partied memorial day and I'm hovering around 175-176. I think I just let off too suddenly. I'm thinking of just spending ~3 weeks or so...

Is it possible my TDEE is this low?

Right now I'm 5'10 157lbs. I'm almost done with my cut, I'm about 17% bodyfat. I have a decent amount of muscle but my bones are pretty thin (tiny wrists) so that's probably why my weight is so low. I've been eating 1500 cal a day and doing 400 cal of cardio. I don't feel hungry really, I think...

Happy with my current build. Now can i slow cut at -200 cal/day?

I'm where i want to be in terms of muscle, but want to cut about 4-5% bodyfat (18% to 13-14%). As I don't plan to seriously bulk anymore, I think I have the luxury of a slow cut. Is a -200 cal/day deficit enough to slowly lose about 1.5 lbs/month or are deficits that small easy for the body to...

Diet algorithm apps?

Is there any benefits using those apps like Carbon Diet Coach or RP diet? Anyone used it and is it worth the money? I mean you could pretty much do it yourself, If fat loss stalls drop a few calories.

CICO, cardio and cutting

After a long period of bulking and increasing strength over time, I'm getting ready to go on a cut. One thing everyone in the gym is saying, "You gotta do cardio too." And I'm like, "Can't I just eat less?" and they're like, "No, it doesn't work like that." A few people use coaches and their...

30 min cardio everyday

I understand the cico is what really matters, but as long as I’m not overly fatigued, is it okay to do 30 min on the stair stepper everyday. It’s more of a low-moderate intensity and my heart rate stays around 140
