Sticky Thread Sticky: Don't look past the basics

From what I've been reading in this forum recently, 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 online 'trainer' who's only trying to scam their $$$. ...

Cool Journey to 10% BF

Hi guys, I’m planning a cut over the next 18 weeks or so. I say 18 weeks as I’ve a holiday booked for then so it’s a good target to aim for. If I could achieve my goal in less time and have time to do a mini lean bulk, that would be even better. At the minute, I’m estimating my BF% around 16%. The...
