    What for?

    Just so you can see the number on the scale? I don't see the point if it's not actually a permanent change in body composition.

    9 months isn't that long.

    How much weight did you gain during that period?

    It's probably worth pointing out the fundamentals - fat loss is purely a function of consuming less calories than you burn. Everything else is peripheral. You can follow this routine if you want, I...

    1. Yup
    2. Yup - weights are particularly important, not because of calories burned but to prevent muscle loss

    If you join a gym, you can head the the Workout Programs forum and look at the sticky threads. Fierce 5 is a good program choice.

    I would zig-zag your fat loss and muscle gain goals... muscle gain is what will make the difference between being a stick and being lean and toned. It's also what takes the longest so don't keep...

    It's normal for back to round when doing a max effort deadlift. It's not a good idea to let it happen too often though. You'll lift more - up until the point where you injure yourself... better to...

    I agree. If you can get away with a protein shake before bed without adverse effects on sleep, you can try that if you want.

    I do that and I find it makes me get up in the night to go for a pee -...

    This is probably the point in the diet where muscle loss is most likely - so I certainly wouldn't exceed the 1% per week rule-of-thumb right now.

    How much do you weigh? Unless you are still...

    The rate of fat loss will be the same as if you reduce calories by the same amount from fat or protein however.

    Cheaper chicken often contains more injected water. Frozen chicken is usually the cheaper stuff compared to fresh.

    Foam rollers fall into the same category as stretching. Muscle knots are a real phenomenon - but everyone has them and you can never get rid of all of them - it would be a waste of time trying....
