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...

Less than 1500 calories?

Hello everyone, I'm trying to lose weight and I was wondering, is it bad to eat under 1500 calories? I'm male, 5'5 and 220 lbs. I've read a few threads but there were many opinions, I wanted to get some extra input from you guys. From what I read, it's best to eat at least 1500 calories...

How much muscle will I lose going from 20% to 10% BF?

I've been slowly cutting and based on the calculators I've used, I'm somewhere between 19 and 21 percent body fat. I've recently bought some size 32 pants and it feels good to be back at this size after over 10 years of buying 36+. My goal is to cut to 10ish percent and maintain. I want to get my...

What do you guys do for motivation?

What are some things you guys do for motivation on a cut? I'm struggling a lot to diet, due to food keeping me sane these days with this endless covid restriction stuff in Canada, and strong depression from a concussion in 2019. I constantly whip out the selfie cam and look at my ****...

Am I doing this wrong?

Sup. I've never tried building muscle before so I don't know if I'm doing this right. I'm 6'0 and in January I was 150, but I don't currently own a scale. Three days a week I'll do sets of 15 push ups until I'm above 100, and three other days I'll do sets of 15 squats with a dumbbell until I'm...

Hi, Been browsing this forum for a couple of years now. I am 5'7" and have reduced my weight from 210 to about 175 lbs through diet and exercise. YMCA fat calculator suggests I am now 23% body fat. I am keen to look big and fit with my clothes on without roids. I am not expecting miracles...

Losing too much lean mass

TL;DR: From BuiltLean pictures, I estimated my BF at 33%, so I did a 1000 calorie deficit. Once I was below 30%, I reduced to 900. Now being closer to 20% I have changed it to 700 calories. I was losing about 1.5lb/week, however my lean mass went from 137.3 in August to 133.6 as of last week...

Do you put value in jeans size?

Title boys. I'm 6 feet and I won't let myself go above 32x32. When they are tight that's my cue to cut back and up my workout intensity. Do you guys do the same or do you think it's a bad metric?

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...

Skinny-fat need advice

I was about 21 in 2009 and started training for the first time in my life. I started out with calisthenics and then fell into the abyss of ****arounditis. Since then I've done kettlebell programs, barbell programs (power to the people) and made decent strength gains. My physique never changed much....

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?

Bloating Has Wreaked Havoc On Me

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...

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...

Great Fatloss Progress...then injury. Anybody have shoulder pain experience?

Hey guys - I was on a weight loss diet and lost a good 10 lbs, while maintaining as much muscle as I could. Unfortunately, during one of my bench press days, while going down to my chest I heard a few "wet" clicks in my right shoulder. I couldn't move my right arm for a good week after that....

Got Gynecomastia surgery last week (pictures)

Thought I’d share it here too. I figured some users may have gyno here. And yes, I know I need to lose fat around my stomach — that’s my #1 priority right now besides healing. I was told by people I should have lipo’d that up as well, but nah, I know I can get rid of that, it’s always...
