  • Your body smooths out wrinkles in your intake...

    Your body smooths out wrinkles in your intake because (for example) glycogen stores are larger than you might think. And fat stores are practically unlimited.

    Also muscle repair and hyperophy...

    Upload photos to your bodyspace profile. These will help. It's likely we'll tell you to focus on gaining muscle first given that you are 132lbs. No, you can't lose fat at the same time - and trying...

    I agree with the above posters OP, people might be meaning well if they post advice here but I feel this requires specialist knowledge and we could get it very wrong...

    I wouldn't even try myself. There are so many measurement errors both on the intake and expenditure side that all you can really do is keep a consistent calorie intake and exercise schedule and make...

    You shouldn't just accept back problems - they can usually be fixed by exercise (and conversely, doing no exercise lets them become worse). This is certainly the case if the problem is muscle related...

    You won't, you need a phased approach. This is from years of experience. You can keep asking the question but the answer will stay the same.

    Can be glycogen uptake and inflammation. Also, loss of bodyfat makes muscles appear larger even if they are not.

    Long story short: too many confounding factors, we've been through this loop with...

    How do you know?

    Body composition tests are mostly useless. Strength can increase without muscle gain at least in the short-medium term.

    I don't generally recommend trying to recomp, it's never...

    People often try this hoping that it will be quicker. It often turns out to be slower. Muscle gain is slowed by being in a calorie deficit - and may halt altogether. It can also be hard to tell if it...

    My wife spends about 100GBP (=130USD) each week in Aldi. This is for 3 of us.

    I would guess my allocation comes to around $50

    I make sandwiches for lunch. She home cooks almost every night.

    I'm no expert on sport specific training but football players usually use routines like Madcows 5x5 as far as I know.

    Guys with especially big arms probably do put in some extra cheeky sets of...

    lol, it sounds like you are trolling...

    On the offchance you are serious, try increasing by 300. If you gained weight from tiny increases before, it was a coincidence.

    The body does a good job of smoothing out wrinkles in your intake. This is because stores of things like fats and glycogen are quite large and only likely to be impacted by larger or longer duration...

    People who say that are usually assuming that you increase the frequency but keep the same volume per session. This is not the case, you keep volume the same but spread out amongst more sessions.

    This is half of the problem - most people don't appreciate how much fat they have to lose - and can't understand why they barely look any different after losing a few lbs.

    It probably came off...

    Protein is fine for babies - but they need lots of other things too which are not in protein powder.

    Give you baby formula or breast milk.

    Caliper readings are the weak link here. You can't really expect to see a difference for just 6lbs of bodyweight. Perhaps they will show a difference over a longer time scale.

    It makes no difference to target muscles used. It just looks less secure.

    It's a myth - usually caused by retained water during a harsh diet. So you don't lose scale weight even though underlying fat loss does continue.

    Take a break and the water goes.

    That's it. Any...
