Sticky Thread Sticky: Don't look past the basics

From what I've been reading in this forum recently, 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 online 'trainer' who's only trying to scam their $$$. ...

Smile Am I gaining fat due to lack of sleep?

Hello experts, I noticed that I have gained considerable amounts of fat during the last 4 weeks, albeit not having changed my daily macros or energy intake, nor my workouts at all. The only possible explanation I can think of is that my quality of sleep has decreased drastically (it gets bright...

Need help with calories

So I've been trying to get really lean before a clean bulk. I'm 5'11" 160. I work in a busy kitchen, lift 5 days a week and cardio 2-3 days. I've been doing keto for the past 16 months. I have a decently slow metabolism. I have been cutting at 1600 calories with a weekly refeed of around 2000...

I'm noticing a drop in strength after 1 week of cutting?

I'm wondering is this normal? Not a major drop I would add but I'm down roughly 2.5kg on BP, OHP and dumbbell press. I have dropped roughly 500 cals, I'm eating at 1500 cals. 6ft, 165lbs. If cals are such an important factor it would explain why my lifts were stalled at maintenance, I never really...

I'm 5' 8", 73 kg (160 lbs) and roughly have 16% body fat. I've started cutting about a week or so ago gradually from usual bulking intake. I'm not massive nor am I looking to be. So I've decided to cut down to about 1500 cals a day (maintenance is around 1900-2000 for me), and cutting down on...

Cool Journey to 10% BF

Hi guys, I’m planning a cut over the next 18 weeks or so. I say 18 weeks as I’ve a holiday booked for then so it’s a good target to aim for. If I could achieve my goal in less time and have time to do a mini lean bulk, that would be even better. At the minute, I’m estimating my BF% around 16%. The...
