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...

Eating below TDEE but not losing weight

Hey everyone, I'm 24 y/o, 6'0, and weigh 180 lbs. I go to the gym 5 days/week and follow a workout plan. I typically do cardio for 15 mins each day. Besides the 90 mins I spend at the gym, the rest of the day is pretty sedentary. I recently had my body fat measured and it was found to be 24%...

Newbie despair

Hi all, I've been training for 3 months now - consistently without fail 4 days a week (one body part each day) plus 3 HIIT sessions. My weight has stayed stubbornly at 74 kg (+/- 0.5 kg). I've gained in strength but haven't seen much appreciable change in my body appearance. Maybe larger biceps...

Decrease in muscle size - real muscle or just water/glycogen

Hi, I lost a few pounds recently, and while I know a good chunk of it should have been fat (my waist did decrease), my muscle measurements also went down. The thing is, my strength isn't much lower than it was before I lost weight, as I did still keep up some training. My body fat is close to...

Question Questions about calories in vs calories off

I have a question that i kinda fear there is no real answer to. How do I figure out what I am burning caloricly during my workout? 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...
