    I don't agree at all. Anyone can if they do it right. The problem we see time and again is that people aren't prepared to eat enough to gain muscle in decent quantities. Note I am talking about food...

    Cannot be discussed on this forum. Anything that is not sold by bb.com and is illegal in most US territories is out of bounds for discussion. Prescription medication too.

    Maybe.

    I've always thought it's a waste of time even trying - after trying BIA scales and calipers. I've even had professional 7 point caliper tests and immersion weighing but does it change what...

    It's entirely possible that witholding nutrients at key stages in development will limit ultimate growth. This is seen in populations that suffer malnutrition.

    Try to cut out ultra processed foods. These seem to act like a narcotic to some people. It will not be easy but you have to basically go cold turkey.

    You should still expect to add weight - the alternative is for your reps to rise in order to achieve progression. You just won't be adding it as fast as the neural adaptations might have you believe...

    5kg in 4 weeks - doesn't sounds like struggling.

    My advice it don't plan too far ahead, it's almost impossible to get an accurate BF% measurement (so I can't give you an answer about how long 12%...

    Try to at least work out the average. If it is say 2250 over a week then you will know based on your weight changes about where your maintenance or break-even calorie level is. This is a useful...

    It's worth running that calculation again but excluding the first weeks readings. There is usually a large drop in water weight in the first week. This can come back again when you stop dieting and...

    Several routines in the sticky threads are perfect for you - like Fierce 5.

    You don't need 5 days a week right now. 3 will be plenty. You could do some cardio or sport on the other 2 days if you...

    A calorie deficit + patience + an awareness of the day-to-day noise in your weight changes caused by water weight.

    Calorie level seems rather imprecise.

    Make sure your counting is tight. Run a given calorie level for 2 weeks, weigh in every day. Look for the trend in the day to day noise.

    1700 is pretty low, I don't recommend trying to lose more than 1% per week.

    You can ignore the first weeks weight changes and just use the other data to approximate your rate of loss

    That is a BIA device... they usually are. The only better methods are only found in labs (bodpod, DEXA, immersion). In any case, the number doesn't matter - you know what you need to do regardless.
