    Doesn't walking burn very few calories though?

    I'm not against walking... in fact I'll happily save a few bucks by parking further away from my destination and walking a mile or two. Walking...

    Same here, worked out in school, then again when I was in my late twenties. Gave it up and spent 10 years getting fat and weak.

    Eat peanut butter, ice cream, oats, full cream milk, etc. Then when you can't eat any more blend it up into a drink and chug it down.

    I used to make a blended drink that was 1,000 calories...

    A cheat meal for me is when I go like 2,000 - 4,000 calories *over* my daily calorie allowance.

    Anything else that is within my allowance, I factor in the macros and it's not a cheat.

    I tend to have some fast acting carbs in the evening rather than after workout. So for me, I eat my carbs when I want to eat them, rather than feeling like I must time them specifically. What...

    Same approach here. I think some people confuse IIFYM with "If It Fits Your Calories"

    I couldn't hit my protein and fat minimums by only eating "junk". Likewise, once I've hit my protein and fat...

    Yep, when cutting I drank a ton of diet soda. Now I'm bulking, I still have a glass or two but not as much.

    Yes you probably need to eat more.

    I cut at first, then switched to a bulk and gradually increased my calories to 3k. I gained around 10 pounds in 6 months

    I would think that duration of sleep, along with it being undisturbed, are the most important factors, not the actual time that you go to bed.

    If it makes you feel any better I aim for 8-9 hours...

    I think it's a good question. I follow iifym, in my teens I did the whole chicken and brown rice thing. If I can't enjoy food now I'd sooner give up BB.

    Well that particular day you won't lose any weight.

    But if you have, let's say, approximately 29,200 days in your lifetime, I wouldn't really sweat one day.

    I've never smoked, but when I was cutting and always hungry, I'd keep my calories under control by eating:

    I'm not quite 40 yet. But I lost over 40 pounds at the age of 38. Would it have been easier in my 20's or early 30's? I'm not sure. My real mistake was gaining it between the age of 28 and 38,...

    I dunno, I'm guessing you're not a "foodie", in other words you're eating to live, rather than living to eat.

    I'm the other way around. I do tend to have very similar meals every day, but they...

    I do 3 sets of bicep curls and 3 sets of tricep push downs per week, and my arms are and always have been my best body part.

    Yeah, your probably right. The only thing that puts me off is that I once went on an irresponsible bulk (didn't track but would guess 5,000-6,000 calories a day). Gained about 60 pounds in a year, a...
