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...

Cutting plan

So I'm trying to build muscle as well as lose some fat. I know you guys might roll your eyes at the suggestion, but just tell me if my plan is flawed. So I start off with a week or two of purely gaining muscle. Lifting heavy weights, increasing my calories just enough to support muscle growth...

Getting from 13% to 10% - should I do low carb or intermittent fasting?

The last time I tried to cut, it didn't end well. The first half of the cut was easy, but toward the tail end, I think I lost equal parts fat and muscle. Granted, this was based on the tape measure method, so my bf% was not exact. Still though, while I noticed a reduction in belly size towards the...
