    I am sceptical that any (legal) product works for anyone.

    IIRC there is some scant evidence of some of them making minor differences - but nothing like the kind of increase you'd get from (say)...

    Reading between the lines, it sounds like you are doing the classic novice thing of fixating on the bench press with shoulder and arms in a supporting role - but with back and legs not even...

    And what about the rest of your lifts?

    Also, height, weight, age etc.

    And what are your goals? Physique or sport/strength/performance related?

    If you don't intuitively aim to progressively overload, you need a program that organises it for you. Do a structured routine like Fierce 5. Eat enough protein and calories to grow muscle even if...

    Muscle loss happens when net calorie deficit is too high and/or protein intake is too low.

    Cardio can contribute to this by increasing your net calorie burn. So we can't really answer the question...

    It isn't a lot and you don't need to factor it in. Perhaps 1-200 calories over and above normal activities.

    You are making guesses anyway, it doesn't really make any practical difference to just...

    It's always faster at the start when part of what you are losing is water and glycogen. I would expect only 0.5kg of actual fat tissue per week on average at 2000 cals for an average male. So your...

    I replaced hack squats with lunges just recently. Guess I'm some sort of extremist lunge zealot. Ah well, the first step is admitting it...

    It really damages your gains big time

    because doing it usually means you get thrown out of the gym :(

    You don't get the instant weight reduction from loss of glycogen like you do on low carb - that's probably the issue here. Underlying fat loss will be the same if the calorie deficit was the same.

    Never heard that before.

    I lunge. I squat.

    Its high because of lack of muscle, not too much fat.

    What matters is calories and macros so that's what you need to work out. The other details are peripheral to that - and it looks like you are trying to do the "6 meal a day" thing which is not...

    It isn't useless, you just need to have a bit more of it - and to mix different sources to get the same total

    Why are some people incapable of nuance, everything has to be TRUE or FALSE [/rant]

    In approximate order of highest protein g / calorie:
    1. protein powder - 21g/100cals
    2. lean meat - 10-18g
    3. high protein beans and lentils - 7-9g
    4. fatty meat - 4-10g
    5. eggs - 8g
    6. low fat...

    Maybe but you need to be prepared to gain a little fluff or bloat along the way. If you keep trying to avoid this, it can be counterproductive.

    Anything over 1.6 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight is optimal.

    You don't necessarily need a calorie surplus to gain muscle. Try at maintenance first - then add calories slowly if you don't...

    I would try to gain muscle at this point. You can aim to do this while keeping your weight level or maybe very slowly gaining mass.

    I wouldn't recommend cutting for where you are now. As you say,...

    There is only one way to do it though - eat less calories than your burn and do some resistance training to prevent muscle loss and...
