    Adjustable dumbbells like PowerBlocks.

    Quality barbell (don’t skimp) with bumper plates.

    EZ Curl bar, preferably with a preacher station (hopefully your bench accepts attachments for this).

    Lol @ suggesting that the body will not adapt to prolonged nutrient deprivation.

    Look up Minnesota Starvation Experiment or Biosphere 2. In both cases there were profound effects that remained...

    What would a picture show us that we don't already know? She's 5'2", 137 lbs, and maintaining weight at 1300 calories. I think we have plenty of info to see what's going on, unless she's lying to...

    Rather than up your calories or keep them the same, I'd prefer you throw out any preconceived notions about your caloric needs. Toss all numbers into the trash bin and start over. I know it's hard,...

    I personally believe there is some truth to the idea of "weight set point". You probably didn't spend enough time up at 90kg to really get that weight "locked in". Your body may even have been...

    Cholesterol and glycemia are linked by virtue of the fact that they both represent available substrate. Cholesterol represents how much fat is available and glycemia represents how much glucose is...

    It's a good point, but doesn't tell the whole story. There's more to it than just maintenance costs of the tissues.

    The balance of insulin sensitivity between muscle, adipose, and hepatic tissue...

    Yes, you've done metabolic damage, but not in the way that you think. Most people use the term "metabolic damage" to imply that there is some inability of the body to respond to normal stimuli. In...

    Well said--I agree with you that comprehensive change needs to be the end goal. However, in my experience sudden comprehensive change also drastically increases the likelihood of drop-out. Trainers...

    Good point. I'm sure we could eventually tip the scales so drastically in favor of processed food that it finally wins. Even then, it's unlikely to achieve the blood measurement improvements shown...

    Hopefully you agree with me that the study also showed why someone would eat more or eat less.



    Who do you consider to be "the most vocal proponents of the hormone theory"? The individuals I...

    There're a lot, but I like the recent "Salt, Sugar, Fat, Fiber" one, because it did a good job of removing the "usual suspects" from the equation and directly laid blame at the feet of processed...

    How much lean mass gets lost during weight loss is a function of two primary variables: how rapidly you are losing weight and how intense your resistance exercise is.

    If you manipulate your...

    Bob won't be able to maintain a 500-calorie surplus eating that way. He may be able to overeat for a few days, but eventually his body will send him signals (hormones) that make him eat less. He...

    It seems that for this particular day he certainly made healthier choices than he normally does.



    Double-edged sword. If he could maintain this "healthy" eating forever, then eventually he...

    Mrpb hit the nail on the head. No way someone 5'10" and 170# is consuming 4,000 calories/day without putting on some fat and feeling full in the process.

    You feel this way because you do not have enough muscle to convince your brain that you look and feel strong relative to your current bodyweight. The solution...

    They all suck for calculating whole-day energy expenditure, but they can help you approximate irregular aerobic activity. For example, I play ice hockey once every couple weeks and some weeks only...
