    ^ As the guys above have said, keep it simple.

    Losing weight is about the broad strokes, not about precision. Just set a daily calorie target and don't exceed it. Do this for 2 weeks, weighing...

    Personally, 1 night doesn't affect me much unless it's high volume training (which it seldom is these days). A few nights on the trot and it does start to take its toll though...

    At a guess I would say that it depends on the level of glucose in cells and in the blood stream. In other words, it depends on how much was burned during exercise and how much is available to replace...

    Not sure if srs - 1600-1800 calories for a 250lb male?

    Yes you can, it's happening all the time. Protein synthesis vs. protein breakdown. It just happens to settle at a lower level if you don't train - i.e. what most untrained people look like

    Very simple, you get feedback from how you feel. It's a bit like measuring your weight. Novices might panic after 1 bad day in the gym and think they need to rest. More experienced lifters will know...

    If you are thinking that different training builds a different type of muscle, that is not the case. From research we've seen that there is a difference in amount of sarcoplasm in different people -...

    This is very common. The reasons are simply that you have a smaller appetite than heavier people do - and you may also have a faster metabolism.

    So you need to consistently eat more than you...

    You can use the nutrition from a similar sized pizza - just use google.

    If you continue to count calories when you have a 'cheat' meal and continue to stick to the calorie target, you'll soon...
