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 $$$. ...

Realistic body goals?

So... it occurred to me that I may have unrealistic expectations for my body. Ladies with truly muscular and toned bodies... what is it like? Can you still grab fat anywhere, like under your arms or on your thighs? On your lower back and stomach? Does your body still jiggle? Is your body, even in...

wYlbzuLVr5M He has some great videos but the stuff he propagates in regards to fat loss is really counterproductive to say the least. I mean look at that video, eight minutes of talking about foods such as "french fries" which are supposedly bad for fat loss, etc, etc. However, not one sentence...

I'm new to this website, and I have no experience with body building. I'm 14 years old soon to be 15. I've heard it's better to have one goal then put yourself onto another than just saying I want to lose my fat and then bulk up. I currently weight around 158.4 lbs I was around 164 lbs like a...

Just how accurate is hydrostatic weighing?

So, I got a hydrostatic weigh-in done at my university this morning. The team performing the test (and everything I research online) assured me that it is quite accurate, second only to DEXA scans, within a 1-2% range. I was quite shocked when I saw my results, and have wondered if something caused...

To lift or not to lift...

After years of spinning my wheels, I'm finally making progress losing weight. I started the year at 275lbs, and I'm down to 210lbs. That's a nice steady drop of around 2lbs per week. Sometimes it's more, and sometimes it's less, but it's steady progress. What finally worked for me was to stop the...

Bulk or cut.... more

Cutting 6 months from 204lbs down to 176lb looking skinny and recent calipers test suggests I'm 9% bf which I know is unrealistic at best, I would estimate closer to 11-12. I don't have a lot in the way of muscle mass so is it worth continuing to cut or am I better off starting a lean bulk now? I...

Trying to help parents lose weight, both very fat. Any recommendations?

I'm pretty new to fitness myself and from what I've gathered when trying to tackle this topic is that when working with someone that's lean, the 15 x (bodyweight in lbs) - 250-500 usually works. It's worked with most of my friends, the rest we found that they needed a little bit less. However...

Margin of error for bulking at 1-2lbs a month

Some people say 1lb is a better goal than 2lb. Sounds such a small a mount that you could go a month before realising you'd accidentally just been doing maintenance instead. How do you guard against this? Daily weighings and if you haven't seen the scale hint at creeping up by a tiny amount...
