    Honestly, I don't expect any protein shake to taste great. It just needs to not make me gag - so I use price per gram of protein as the basis to select it. I just chug it down when I need it and rely...

    We recommend against trying to make your own at first - because a ready made expert designed routine (like Fierce 5 in the sticky threads for example) will always be better. Read the program...

    Body types are not a thing. Obviously genetics do play a role but your state now is more a function of your lifestyle and habits.

    Why? Resistance is resistance, doesn't matter if it comes from your bodyweight or a chunk of iron.

    You won't do them at the same time. There is no shortcut, it's better IMO to focus on one goal at a time
    - lose fat and maintain muscle - any muscle that is built is a bonus

    Appetite is a powerful force. Unless you mostly eat very low calorie dense foods it probably won't work. Meat, eggs, fibrous vegetables only.

    Either count calories or eat a restrictive diet. It...

    Sounds fine

    When you say your deficit is 3260, do your mean your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) is 3260?

    It might be. One way to check would be to monitor your weight for several weeks -...
