    You don't need 6 meals, you don't need to eat the same boring stuff all the time

    But you do need to track calories and protein grams at the very least. I didn't see you mention these - you...

    It's kind of irrelevant what your heart rate is for fat loss. It's true that you burn a greater proportion of fat at lower levels of exertion - but then you wouldn't expect walking or sitting to be...

    Weigh it before cooking it. That will be more accurate because the water absorption rate is variable.

    You're better off posting in the workout programs forum. There are more people about there.

    If you are trying to lose weight then you will have trouble growing muscle. But also, if you lose fat,...

    No it's not. People here have experience of making estimations and are often way better than calipers and certainly better than the BIA devices that constantly cause people problems.

    When cutting, muscle growth often slows or stops. So reducing total workload will make that more likely to happen.

    Having said that, not many people experience much muscle growth when dieting -...

    No (short of drugs which may not be discussed on this forum) otherwise we'd all be doing it.

    I understand that as a novice, you might dream up smart tricks or hacks to do better than everyone else...

    Carbs is not the only thing that affects hydration. Salt, foods that are not as easily digestible (e.g. dairy, beans, lentils) are two other common ones.

    Whatever other problems junk foods may...

    Perhaps 2500 calories is your maintenance level.

    Eating what you perceive to be healthy foods will not cause weight loss if your calories are at maintenance. You need a calorie deficit.

    Increase reps. Train to a consistent exertion level e.g. 1 rep before true failure.

    If you can't increase reps either, it could be a sign that you need more sets...

    Water weight. Fat doesn't come or go quickly.

    Genuine fat gain is always explainable. If you gained 1lb of fat, ask yourself where did the additional 3500 calories come from?

    Your body smooths out wrinkles in your intake because (for example) glycogen stores are larger than you might think. And fat stores are practically unlimited.

    Upload photos to your bodyspace profile. These will help. It's likely we'll tell you to focus on gaining muscle first given that you are 132lbs. No, you can't lose fat at the same time - and trying...

    I wouldn't even try myself. There are so many measurement errors both on the intake and expenditure side that all you can really do is keep a consistent calorie intake and exercise schedule and make...

    You shouldn't just accept back problems - they can usually be fixed by exercise (and conversely, doing no exercise lets them become worse). This is certainly the case if the problem is muscle related...
