    As a geezer, full body 3x a week works for me because it gives me adequate recovery time. Also, having a home gym, the length of my workout is not an issue. Yeah, it's draining, but I do recover. ...

    Heresy! Sacrilege! Dogs and Cats living together! Could lead to dancing!

    Seriously, OP, if it works for you, do it. If you do 5x5 you'll go slightly heavier, but it's not likely to affect your...

    This last piece of advice is absolutely spot on. My wife tends to get discouraged at times when she's not feeling as well as she'd like to, and I have to regularly remind her of how far she's come. ...

    Yes, you can lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, especially since you're a beginner. If you were already an intermediate to advanced lifter that wouldn't be the case, but for you it's doable....

    I prefer the strawberry too.

    As for fresh fruit, I'm finding that some grapes, particularly the green ones, can be too sweet. I don't know if that's my tastes changing or if the fruit is actually...

    Geez, I hope that's not the secret! I don't think it's so much being given it all back, but taking it all back. I can look at it as a gift, but I can also look at it as something I've worked hard...

    ^^^^ This in spades. At 46 you can make fantastic gains in muscle mass and great fat loss. All you have to do is work at it.

    When you say 12 hours a day, do you mean 60 hours a week? That does...

    If you enjoy keto, and it helps you stick to your calorie goals, then it's a good thing. There's nothing magical about it otherwise. Make sure you get adequate protein and micronutrients, and...

    In my experience atrophy has happened orders of magnitude faster than gains, but I think that's influenced partly by age and partly by physical stress. The last time it took me about a year and a...

    In that case, forget about trying to reach 120 pounds. It may not be where you're meant to be. Your body wants to stay at 135/138 -- let it. I recommended heavy lifting before, I'll recommend it...
