    Yes, I think they look like the kind of proportions I would expect.

    I'm guessing you have fairly light bodyweight since the pullups appear better than the BB row.

    Sounds like things are working out just fine.

    Why not just change the things you eat. Cut out high calorie dense stuff like processed foods and replace with fruit and vegetables, meat and eggs....

    This is common but incorrect thinking.

    Compounds should be the bread and butter of any routine - both strength and physique oriented. Accessories are only there to fill in the gaps and add extra...

    Body dysmorphia - the more time you spend looking in the mirror and worrying about it the worse it will get. Understand that your perception of your own body could be radically different to another...

    If it's anabolic steroids you are talking about then that is a subject which may not be discussed on this forum. We also can't give medical advice so any kind of medication is generally out of bounds...

    India is going to crash hard - probably harder than Brazil.

    They were slow to get going but the graph is and remains an exponential shape. They have huge, densely populated cities and news reports...

    Sounds like you need to get a grip on your calorie intake. The idea that you have to starve to lose fat or stuff yourself silly to gain muscle are both unnecessary. Lose fat at no more than 1% per...

    Too many calories make you fat (i.e. consuming more than you burn). Carbs (starches and sugars) contain calories (at 4 cal / g) so yes - they can be implicated in making you fat. But so can all other...

    Your over simplifying a nuanced topic.

    Like I said, insulin resistance is linked to weight gain.

    But carbs for healthy people is not.

    I can see what you are getting at - but sometimes you have simplify away nuances depending on your audience.

    At the other extreme you might get someone like Mark Rippetoe telling you to do GOMAD

    No but it can affect skin hydration. The point is not to worry about these things but concern yourself with things that matter - gaining muscle and/or losing fat.

    I calculated it on the basis of reaching 12%

    15% is about an 11kg loss

    Again, this assumes your BF% estimation is accurate (which is a big assumption since it's notoriously hard to get accurate...

    It probably was water weight. Fat loss is always explainable in terms of calorie deficit. 7700 calories for every kg

    If you lose 0.5kg a week after the initial water weight drop, you are doing...

    That's normal. Have you done the sums to see how much you actually need to lose to get definition?

    Let me try for you, assuming your BF% is accurate... You have to lose 30lbs to reach 12%. I'm...

    That could be water weight. Actual fat doesn't come or go quickly. It can always be explained by a surplus or deficit of calories - 3500 for every lb of bodyfat.

    No

    If you want to as close to optimal as it's worth trying to get - then you need around 1.6 grams of protein per kg of lean body mass each day. This can all come from your diet if you choose...

    Apparently it's not too much. Overcoming your appetite is always a challenge - both skinny and fat guys experience the same (but opposite) problem.

    You could do less cardio too. If you are getting...
