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...

At what weight is recomping better than cutting

If someone is obese, you'd recommend them to cut. If someone was skinnyfat/low muscle mass, i.e. maybe in the 160-180 lb range depending on their height, you'd probably recommend them to eat at maintainance and recomp. Where exactly is the point where someone should stop cutting and go for a...

Angry I lost weight and then I gained it back

So I used to workout a lot. I lost 50lbs (230-180) by running a lot and doing weight training back when i was 17 in 2017. From then I’ve stayed in the 195-220 range. But in 2020 I hurt my leg really bad and was basically bedridden for 2020 and 2021. I now weigh 260 and the weight keeps piling on. I...
