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...

Exclamation Is this a good idea to start with?

My plan was to lose weight at the start of the year but I have been all over the place with my diet since January. For the last 5 months I have been either overeating or under eating (in hopes of sustaining the undereating phase and losing weight). I go on 800 calories diets for days to a week but...

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.

Want to lose weight, get a little more fitter, and healthier!

Hello all! So I recently took more time looking at the mirror, and realized how unhealthy I look already. Before the pandemic happened, I was a little overweight, but never did my tummy create an uncomfortable fold between my chest and, well, tummy. So I decided to try and lose weight. The...

Any math wizards in here?

Is there any way I can take my current calorie intake and median weight loss to calculate my maintenance calories? So say that I lose 120 grams per day eating 2500 calories. Can I use those numbers to calculate my maintenance?

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?

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....
