    Long term, denying yourself anything will fail. Instead, focus on what you're actively doing. For example, planning your meals and executing that plan is a positive thing that you can succeed at...

    No appreciable difference. Whatever results you get from either will pale in comparison to strength training.

    You just need to find ways to move more that are fun. I like hiking, so I do that, but maybe for you it's tennis, skating, rowing, who knows. Find something. You'll never consistently force...

    Sure it is. Burning 200 calories on a run is the same as eating 200 less calories. Although most people would prefer to skip the run and just eat a bit less.

    The amount of calories burned...

    Seems to me like that would defeat the whole purpose of reversing dieting. If you're coming off a long cut and trying to restore hormone levels without going off the rails you're better off just...

    I find my recovery ability is pretty limited on a cut, so I favor long walks. Burns calories without an impact on recovery, if you can find the time for it.

    There's a major neural component to strength that has little to do with lean mass. This is "regained" much more quickly when you come back after a long break, so I think you may see some impressive...

    My own experience with DEXA scans has led me to believe that they're enormously misleading when you're relatively untrained. Our interpretation of what a DEXA scan of 15% BF (for instance) equates...

    If you rely on motivation alone I think you'll fail pretty quickly. Automation is better than motivation IMO. Setup habits you can just follow without too much thought. Whatever that is for you,...

    That will lead to an increase in cortisol from the physical stress, which drives water retention. That plus inflammation.

    Anything that swings around like water bottles will destabilize the bar and make the lift a lot harder than normal. Look for something you can clamp onto the bar or the outer plate that isn't going...

    Less protein, more fat. Try 200g protein, 90g fat, rest from carbs. You can probably lose fat at 2400 calories if you count properly.

    If you're training and losing weight you're on the right path.

    Ignore that bodyfat measurement thing, it's useless.

    You will want to pay closer attention to macros to ensure adequate protein...

    When I tell people they should stop losing fat, it's because I think they'll look better by focusing on muscle gain over fat loss. I don't think there's anything all that unhealthy about being too...

    You've got the right idea.

    I wouldn't dismiss calorie counting out of hand, it's far easier than you think, and brings some structure to your diet. If you're an analytical person you should...

    I dunno man, if your thirst is causing you to drink that much, I'd be a little worried. No one ought to be that damn thirsty. Have you been checked for diabetes?

    Nothing I did helped till I saw a chiropractor and got my neck unlocked. Sometimes all the soft tissue work in the world can't realign your spine. Depends what's causing it I suppose.

    Seems to me you set the starting weight too high (too close to your max) and you stalled out early as a result. Scale it back 10% or more and build up again very slowly.
