    You don't really lose 4-5lbs quickly. Probably what happened was a rapid water loss initially and the fat losses caught up with it as it levelled back out.

    If they don't help you with your workout, don't use them... they are by no means essential to getting a good workout.

    All Pros is fine, maybe even a little conservative for a young man.

    If you keep control of your surplus, then just gaining muscle should make you look better. You might have the same amount of fat...

    You don't need to pile on weight to gain muscle, it should be just as possible at or maybe a whisker above your maintenance level. I wouldn't cut, I would try for maintenance first and make increases...

    It doesn't burn out your adrenal glands... that is nonsense from a medical point of view AFAIK. But you do develop a tolerance to stimulants like caffeine. Take a couple of weeks off stims completely...

    The good news is that you don't need fancy foods or supplements.

    In principle, you could eat what you are eating now, just less of it and you would lose weight.

    But if you are eating a lot of...

    Creatine occurs naturally in many foods. Your body flushes out what it doesn't need. If you stick to the 3g a day dosing guidelines then hopefully it won't need to do much of that anyway.

    I can't see why it would be, all of those things are just processed food products. Not sure why the label advice exists but the usual motivation is to mitigate any legal liability that could arise.

    You can measure progress by progressively increasing reps or weight used or number of sets (amongst other things). Those are the yardsticks of progress, if you can achieve that without feeling the...

    No need, results from real life always supersede the educated guess you get from a calculator.

    So maybe your maintenance level is closer to 3000 cals then.

    I would be happy with 2lbs a week, I know it seems a long way to go, you can safely reduce calories quite low when you have a lot of...

    2lbs a week is more than I was expecting from 2500 calories... So you must be burning 3500 each day which is not bad going.

    I'm guessing you used a BIA device to measure your body composition. We...

    If your goal is to gain muscle, lack of cardio is not the issue (even if it was to lose fat at this time, cardio is still not necessary, just adjust calorie intake).

    OP, you can lose body fat using a calorie deficit created either by reducing intake or increasing activity. There is no difference provided that you are doing a basic level of weight training to...

    Apart from the preworkout (which probably has caffeine), none of them contain any drugs - so it probably doesn't matter. But supplements are not a substitute for whole foods.
