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...

So i've been cutting calories for the past 4 months, i've dropped from 190 to 155 (I'm 5'8). I've been maintaining a pretty strict caloric deficit to get to this point but my question is mostly about how long I should keep this up before putting increasing my calorie intake and putting on...

Retaining muscle mass during a cut

Gyms closed again in my country, but I haven’t completed my cut yet. Are weighted pull ups and push ups enough to keep on exercising and retaining muscle mass at the same time? I don’t know whether it’s better to continue my cut and rely on weighted push ups and pull ups or just take a break from...

How to make cutting more enjoyable?

I want to drop about 5lbs of fat to be at my desired goal of 11-12% bf. So I don't need an extreme fat loss protocol, but I still need some strategy. The thing is when I cut, I still lift heavy at the gym and I feel that this hurts my cutting process and causes me to overeat. If I don't overeat, I...

meal prep advice

So I'm new to meal prepping and I'm trying to aim for 2530 calories (or less). I want to know how do I get started? I planned out some meals but they don't necessarily add up to my goal deficit.

Hi everyone! :)

I have been struggling to lose weight for years! Some doctors told me that it is about hormones, the other that I need to change my nutrition... But, I found out that it is all about metabolism. Do you have any recommendations?

Will going from 17% body fat to 12% body fat change my face?

Part of the motivation for losing body fat for me is to reduce the fat carried in my face/cheeks. I want to have a leaner face. I have started a cut from 17% body fat (perhaps a little more, in the 17-18% body fat region, as measured by the Navy Seal Method). My target is 12%, and I have worked...

Grew up thin, ballooned out in my 20's. Mostly due to a penchant for gluttony, sloth, addiction to food and general sleepiness. Hey, I'm a writer so I can be forgiven for sleeping all day and trying to party all night? (sigh) Suppose the plague has given us all time to do things we might not...

Cool Why is the Metabolic Slowdown thread a sticky?

Metabolic slowdown isn't a slowdown, at all; it is just a reduction to the energy you expend commensurate with the change in TEF, activity level, and your weight. However, most take it to the extreme by believing the anomalous adaptations by the human body in response to severe malnourishment can...

How long do your diets usually run for?

Hey guys, so how long are you usually running your diets for? I know there are many techniques to creating a deficit and different techniques can be effective for different people. How long is too long to run a deficit? And what do you consider a normal diet cycle? Thanks and happy training :)
