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...

Question Questions about calories in vs calories off

I dont think you can set a static amount like 185lb bench burns x calories per rep, as I can do reps of it no problem, but my buddy can do a 1 rep or maybe 2 reps for...

So I've been cutting for a little over 4 months now and I'm seeing great results. My physique looks pretty lean and tight, for the most part, when I'm standing straight. However, when I bend over my tummy forms these unattractive ripples. Not sure if it's loose skin or a final layer of fat. I...

Thought I was bulking, just put on fat

I used to go to the gym every day and train for 1-2 hours. Since COVID shut 24hr Fitness down, I haven't had a gym to go to besides an apartment gym I sneak into.

Went from 15% to 27% body fat in 4 months

I really let myself go these past 4 months because home workouts weren’t as satisfying as lifting weights at the gym. Stopped counting calories too. My biggest concern is the extra body fat I’m carrying. Can I get away with a harsh diet (like 1000-1500 calories under maintainance) without...

Hi, do any of you feel like you look bigger when you are leaner. Right now I am almost done with my bulk and I feel tiny. My BMI is almost 30 and my abs are still a little visible.

Transitioning to a cut

Hey, finally hit my goal weight, and I’m going to transition into a cut. I’ve scaled back the calories and I figured out what my current maintenance calories are. My question is if I should stay at maintenance calories for a few weeks to a month, or if I should just jump right into a cut.
