    He's not particularly large, not particularly lean.

    Looks good for a 'Mr average' though. Don't know how much he has to work to get that physique, but with effort I think anyone but a small...

    You can easily boil chicken and make it rubbery, but sixpack obviously has it down. Don't boil for too long (depends on the size of breasts) and then let it cool/stand for a while to finish cooking...

    Yes.

    But there is still no thing as a negative calorie food. Maybe very cold water, but that's about it.

    Ground flax seeds are a good source of calories.

    Sound OK, but go for a steady overall weight gain, rather than weight loss. I would still monitor your progress so you don't end up just spinning your wheels.

    Either you consistently buy really crappy chicken or you overcook them.

    Try browning them and then before they are done take them off the heat and let stand for 5 minutes or so covered. They...

    why, do you think they do what's 'best'?

    I vote 'none', there is no 'best'.

    An salmon and chicken. Multiple flavors, many of which are good, although some are very salty which is not great, especially for traveling.

    I go with some pre-cooked meals (but they include meat)...

    Maybe at rest, but you can likely lift a lot more weight and burn more calories exercising. Plus just being heavier burns more calories though daily activities. So while the often cited numbers of...

    Yes, but pasturized should be close to the bio availability of cooked. I think a quick search will confirm this.

    This is very conservative IMO. Last steak I ate was out of the fridge in my basement for 4 days (raw) before it was even worth trying to eat. 1-2 days in the fridge LOL, it would still be all...

    There is no 'set time'. Live in a very dry climate like Arizona (or at altitude) and even at the same fridge temperature food will last a lot longer than somewhere like the Gulf coast or Florida.

    If you're still lifting hard, that's probably not muscle you're losing. How are you measuring it? Whatever you are doing is likely flawed. Many people think they have more muscle than they...

    You need a HR monitor that calculates calories from resting HR, VO2max etc.. It's not a linear equation, so just knowing average HR isn't going to be very accurate at all.

    I've seen all sorts of body shapes, especially skinny-fat ones. Put on 20-40lb of muscle, then re-evaluate. 1-2 years of eating and working out hard and you'll be surprised how your body shape will...

    When I did, yes for sure. 6g of fat from fish oil is not really any different than from food and could easily be 10+% of your daily fat intake. If I ate a piece of salmon with 6g of fat I'd count...

    Reduce lifting volume a bit (either # of days and/or time/number of exercises) and increase cardio. This is for most people - obviously we'd have to see your program to know for sure. Lift mostly...

    Look up the profile of fish fat (it varies a bit, but not a whole lot). Some of that it other omega3's some in mono and some saturated fat.

    That's what I was thinking. If you hadn't opened it it might have become a collectors item in 20-30 years time and worth something.

    It's useless, go buy some creatine monohydrate (micronized or...
