    Anyone have solid opinion of this multi? Through experimentation I think I have soy sensitivities and most multis...

    I think everyone should calorie count for at least a few months. If you can stick to it, great. It'll just mean more consistency and speed with your results. Even if you don't like it, calorie...

    Morbidly obese. IIFYM basically was my holy grail. 6 meals a day, brotastic foods, "clean" eating all fizzled after a month.

    I have eggs on occasion but to be quite honest I have always found the concept of "breakfast" foods bizarre and arcane. It makes absolutely no sense to me why I have to eat certain foods in the...

    Agreed. Plus its much harder to cut with that high a protein target if you don't already have a great base. Eating 1.5x when you can cut at 2500 calories is much easier than when you try it at 1800...

    I echo the food sentiment. You say you have an intense job, exercise frequently, and are underweight for your height (ecto aside). Since your just starting out, the most likely scenario, by far, is...
  • Just track calories consumed alone and adjust...

    Just track calories consumed alone and adjust based on scale results. Estimating daily activity/calories burned at the gym is borderline impossible to do with any real accuracy.
  • You probably lost a bit of muscle on your cut but...

    You probably lost a bit of muscle on your cut but not enough to be a huge deal. Most people couldn't eyeball a 1-2 lb change in LBM unless in contest shape. That said, most people to worry about...
  • What your looking for is called "tzatziki" and is...

    What your looking for is called "tzatziki" and is a common Greek sauce. Basically you can treat it as pure greek yogurt (odds are most NYC stands use full fat versions rather than the fat free...

    Agreed. While high protein/lifting is great advice for everyone to follow, the notion of rapid muscle loss is overstated for newbie dieters. As you noted, people with above average lean mass for...

    For the sake of argument I'll ignore every gut feeling that this is a troll thread/steroid user thread and just ask why you need to get any lower that you are now. You are already shredded to...
  • Just measure your self once a week first thing in...

    Just measure your self once a week first thing in the morning (after going to the bathroom, before eating/drinking, and naked if possible). Over time you should see the progress you want. Remember...
  • If you have truly plateaued (aka several weeks,...

    If you have truly plateaued (aka several weeks, not just a few days), try a diet break for 2 weeks. Worked pretty well for me (though I didn't have a hard plateau, just had a vegas trip/some...

    I would say that is a gross exaggeration and a good example of creating a false dichotomy (meaning that its not an either or situation). The truth is likely that a bodybuilding diet is not the same...

    The only thing I would be worried about is malnutrition. Fiber does prevent the uptake of nutrients in the body. Having an excessive amount of them might cause you to become deficient in other areas....

    Eating 100+ fiber a day is probably not the best of ideas. Fiber limits nutrient absorption and eating that much might be preventing absorption of key nutrients, especially since you are getting it...

    Unless you are getting the majority of your protein from grains or legumes (not together), you will get enough EAAs though other protein sources assuming you are following bodybuilding guidelines on...

    I would also add that if you don't love chicken breasts and/or egg whites it can be tricky to hit protein macros on a cut. Since the amount of protein in a diet stays fairly consistent (assuming you...

    Cutting is basically the process of losing fat (weight). Bulking is the process of gaining muscle (weight). Both refer to diet and exercise, which are both important. Once you read the stickies...
