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...

Poll Poll: Losing the holiday gains

The holiday season is, for many of us, a time where we indulge in various decadent eats and, as a result, we usually end up gaining a few extra pounds. It does not have to take a whole year to get back into shape if you start right now and stay consistent.

Losing fat without losing muscle

Hi all, I started weights about 6 months ago. However, slowly started to be a little undisciplined in my diet and started eating foods that I would eat prior to lifting weights. As a result have gained some fat. How can I lose this fat without losing my gains or losing minimal gains?

12 sets of 100 jump ropes vs 6 sets of 200 jump ropes, which is better?

12 sets of 100 jump ropes vs 6 sets of 200 jump ropes, which is better? I used to do 10 sets of 8 weighted sit ups and 12 sets of 100 jump ropes. Now I do 10 sets of 9 weighted sit ups (i do sit ups faster with this weight 22lbs now, so it takes the same time) and 6 sets of 200 jump ropes. Extra...

Smile Why is it harder for women and men over the age of 30 to lose weight

The reasons why it’s so hard can vary from person to person, particularly due to the role of genetics in weight gain. But reduced metabolism in older age is a major factor, as are changes in hormones, particularly in women going through menopause. And lifestyle-related factors play a role as...

217 to 179, how much more?! Pics Attached.

I was stuck at 184 a couple weeks back, and thanks to the forum I’m back on track and have lost another 4-5lbs. I was originally asking about starting to bulk because I’ve been at this for what feels like forever, but I was told I have a ways to go. My smart scale (I know, I know) said I was...

Would you postpone fat loss if you were injured?

Suppose you have a wrist injury that keeps you from working several muscle groups. Would you just work the others and aim for losing a pound of fat a week? Or would you postpone the weight loss out of fear of losing muscle in the unworked groups? I forgot to add: Assuming 23% body fat and...

Question Fatloss & Muscle gain caloric intake?

Problems with sleep

Over the last few years I’ve had trouble losing weight, because every time I go on a calorie deficit I can never sleep well. It’s always very light sleep and it either takes me a long time to fall asleep or I wake up around 3 and can’t go back to sleep for hours. It’s never sustainable more...
