    That is a controversial topic. There *might* be some benefit from undulating calorie intake but it's always the long term average that determines actual amount lost. And you need at least 3 days at...
  • Doesn't usually last more than a couple of weeks....

    Doesn't usually last more than a couple of weeks. Sometimes, a brief time upping calories to maintenance will make your body drop it.
  • OK so if you've been getting that rate of loss...

    OK so if you've been getting that rate of loss consistently since you started - and if you didn't change anything about your intake - then the most likely explanation is water retention. Just keep...

    What about the 2 weeks before your plateau - did the scale show an unusually large loss?

    You could just be retaining water and at some point it will drop and you'll suddenly lose a chunk of...

    If it were me, I would stay in a small deficit and lose weight slowly - but aim to make progress with lifting. I think I would prefer Fierce 5 to SS.

    Maybe dial your calories in so that you lose...

    I forgot to mention that skin gets thinner as we age - so that would explain why age is a parameter to the calliper test.

    I'm not aware of any reason to be concerned by that.

    It's been a while since I read through this, you could have a look if you want:

    Supposedly, your neural output is fairly low in the morning so you won't get best strength performances. Early evening is meant to be the ideal time for that if you have a choice. If you don't, it's...

    Sarcopenia - the loss of muscle with age. Often this is replaced by fat because your appetite doesn't change.

    Weight training can reverse this. I am leaner and more muscular at (nearly) 50 than I...

    I've had keyhole surgery on the knee to remove cartilage. I don't think you need a special program but you do need some muscular balance.

    So maybe something like a ratio of 3 sets of squats to...

    Set a minimum of around 140g protein and 65g of fat.

    Fill your calorie target with ANY combination of macros that meet (or exceed) those minimums.

    calories = 4 x protein + 4 x carb + 9 x...

    It would be better to understand why *some* types of processing make food less healthy for you.

    Cooking is a process but often improves the digestibility of food (but sometimes destroys vitamins...

    Yeah, I would retain some control over calories even if it's fairly approximate counting.

    Plenty of people that were previously skinny pile on the weight and then complain about their new gut and...

    The only proven benefit of IF is from entraining a meal pattern that suits you (e.g. you don't feel hungry in the mornings so why eat).

    If you can't stick to regular meal times, that benefit...

    I am amused that you listed semen retention before heavy lifting... I'm pretty sure it will make close to zero difference to results. There is a lot of nonsense talked about "nofap".

    But to answer...

    Actually strength and muscle size go hand in hand. It might help you to read the size vs. strength sticky thread in the Workout Programs forum.

    Coolcicada is actually more geared towards gaining...

    Try to keep it moving - but don't do anything that produces shooting pains.

    Next time you try squatting, use a lighter weight and maybe video yourself so you can check your spinal position.

    Starting from a low position is not necessarily bad or dangerous as long as you are able to maintain good form - keep your spine in a fixed position, not convex at any point (upper or lower).

    There is hardly anything there - but if you keep dieting, you aren't going to get any muscle definition - you need to focus on building some muscle first. It's not going to help you trying to get...
