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...

consistent progress at 170 with a belly

I'm 5'11 170 lbs 20 yrs. New to bodybuilding, not new to working out. I've dieted before, did high school sports, and weightlifting. I'm lifting on a 5 day split for a little over a month now. I've got a belly but not sure how to get rid of it without killing my gains and losing weight.

Increased anxiety during cuts/deficits

Good afternoon forums. I've been bodybuilding for over a decade now but I still seem to struggle to get down into the single digits, in fact I've probably only been that low once in my early twenties. The main problem I seem to face is increased anxiety and panic attacks when I'm deep into my...

How much bf% can be safely lost per month?

Currently at ~15%, like the idea of cutting to 12% and maintaining there forever. Assuming a steep, but safe cut (e.g., 1-1.5lbs lost per week, lots of protein, keep lifting to maintain muscle), how quickly could this be done?

Completely fasted training vs Carbs only

Will training with only carbs only in the morning have a systematic effect on your apparent fat loss levels, or even theoretical muscle tissue levels? No protein, no fat. Interest is for fasted training or stronger training and with only slight appetite for carbs, but fat loss is not an issue...

FitBit Inaccuracy? Calorie deficit seems really high in order to lose weight

Hello, I've been seriously tracking my weight for 3+ years now with a Fitbit, MyFitnessPal and a food scale. I feel that I'm counting my calorie intake pretty well. I try to log everything as accurately as possible but I found that I need pretty high calorie deficits to lose weight. ...

That much fat?

For the last 3 months I've been using myfitnesspal to track my calories and having only read that sticky post earlier, it didn't occur to me that the body does indeed need a minimum intake of x, y, z, and that a ratio means nothing. So I've been 40/40/20 for this period of time. A typical day...

HMB as substitute for extra protein?

There is data showing that HMB is good for cutting, mostly in beginners. 3 grams is optimal for someone who is 200 pounds. Studies without HMB say that to lose 1% of your body weight as fat each week, you need at least 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, or something high like that....

Question Fat or water gain?

After 1 month of keto diet, I have managed to have a nice look. Buuuut, in the last week I started to eat high-carb: ice-cream, fruits, etc. I don't know whether I've gained water (+ I'm feeling bloated) or fat. I have stopped the high-fat foods, but I've started the "summer" menu: as I said,...
