    Good information! My question is I don't have the best appetite most of the time I don't eat breakfast sometimes not even lunch usually just dinner. I know this isn't healthy and I really want to have a healthy and fit lifestyle. I have other issues also as far as dealing with chronic pain from car accidents. I've heard it's good to eat 6 small meals daily. Would love any advice on this! Could I supplement some meals with protein shakes? Wanting to lose weight & build muscle in a healthy way I'm completely new to all of this have never counted calories just try and eat healthy portions. Any advise would be appreciated

    Please, could anyone check if my nutrition plan is fine?

    I'm trying to gain muscle, and I have 70kg and 1,74cm of height. My actual macros are: 172gr protein, 80 gr fat and 300 gr carbs.

    I am going to gym 4 times a week doing a upper/lower split (the viking routine).

    Macro help needed

    Hello all,

    I was hoping someone could give me some advice where I'm going wrong.

    Ok, so I'm 6'2 male, age 31 and currently 203lbs, 19% body fat. I've been going to the gym for 5 years now, 4-5 times a week, usually pretty heavy weights followed by some cardio. Over the years I've become very strong but I've never been able to get lean and have the stubborn love handles. I was a fat kid and have a few fat relatives, I think I'm genetically programmed to gain strength relatively easily but to store fat.

    I decided to give the Macro Nutrition a go and for the first time I am measuring everything I eat and preparing food in advance ect.

    According to the calculations I should have a 3000 cal maintenance intake and 2400cal to loose weight, 203g of protein, 200g carbs and 40g of fat

    So I have stuck to this religiously, measuring all ingredients and keeping a food diary for 5 weeks, apart from one cheat night out beers. I have upped the gym efforts, now doing 5 times a week, 1 hour of weights followed by a 5k run

    Fitness has definitely increased but scales say I'm still around 203lbs in the morning and there doesn't seem to be any obvious fat loss.

    I noticed that the Macro Nutrition targets even at the reduced cals is still way way more food than I used to eat before, and I found it a real struggle to actually consume this in a day. I wasn't counting before but I estimate I was maintaining weight at around 1800 cal a day.

    Do I need to drop my calorie intake further for it to be effective, but if so then it's not possible make the Macro targets.
    Anyone have any theories where I'm going wrong, or is it just going to take more time?

    Bro, i'm trying to take your advice. But it is hard when you spout broscience nonsense like this. No, i am not unique, which is precisely why you can build muscle and lose fat at the same time. I have seen it. This article, among MANY describes this perfectly...

    Im starting to think you are a troll. You came here knowing literally nothing about lifting and within a few days are throwing around terms like bro science and giving out advice which is just plain terrible.

    I’m 25 years old, 6ft tall, and weight 282 lbs. I’ve been up and down on the scale and I am trying to leave the obesity category again. I recently started a new job that is very demanding on my body. I’m working in the junk removal business and we lift A LOT. I burn anywhere from 2000-5000 calories A DAY at work 5 days a week (I wear the Apple Watch that tracks my calories burned). At the same time, I started eating less to lose fat so I can be healthier, but I don’t know if that’s a good idea.

    What is the proper way to eat when burning so many calories daily? Should I be eating more protein? And what else ?

    Hey guys.... lots of good info here!! But I'm reeaaalllllly bad when it comes to to reading long articles or PDF's on the computer.... I always open up new tabs halfway through ... I learn something much quicker and easier when I read it in a book. Could anyone recommend me some good ones for someone who is is new to all this? Something that has all the info someone who is completely clueless would need on nutrition and dieting to figure out the basics? Also, one that someone who is skinny, and trying to get diet could read to figure out the the right way to diet when your looking for gains? I'm 5'10 and 151 pounds. Trying to build something from nothing. Not sure if this is the right thread to ask this but I thought I would just shoot the ****. Thanks!!

    Nutrition:
    not to discourage you from reading but you don't need to be a professor in biology to get gains. some posts in these forums can be full of 3 dollars words which are being used in the wrong context by someone who doesn't even understand what they're saying lol. you can start now without reading books but I advise you read as much as you can comfortably. but you can start your journey of gains now. I'd advise you to keep eat every 3-4 hours a day. Make sure each small meal you take in has 30g of lean protein. carbs will be your friend so load up on good carbs such as oatmeal, whole grain pastas, quinoa, sweet potato, carbs which bring vitamins and nutrients to the table. as for proteins load up on fish, you can either do it the poor man's route by stocking up on cans of tune ( watch your mercury intake) or by buying plenty of wild salmon. chicken breast is also a diet staple, don't forget vegetable proteins such as beans, lentils and peas. Nuts are a great way to get those proteins and good fats in as well. I wouldn't advise peanuts as they aren't really nuts , they are legumes and they grow underground absorbing any pesticides that are in the soil. cashews, are a fav of mine, you can even make your own cashew butter with a hint of coconut oil and a touch of honey for taste.

    In the GYM:
    GO HARD! play hard like a kid, eat like a kid, sleep like a kid. you need to constantly push your body to new levels and CONFUSE YOUR MUSCLES WITH NEW WORKOUTS. doing the same workouts will only show you results in the beginning but eventually you will reach a plateau where your gains will seize. Eat often to make sure you take in more calories than you expend. Use mental triggers to help you in the gym to trigger your flight or flight response. EX. I think about what I really hate while im doing my reps to give me that extra edge on the bench. your adrenaline will kick in and it will trigger your hormones in your body to grow. Sleep as often as you can as you grow when you sleep. if you're willing to take this seriously, cut out the alcohol if you drink and partying. a weekend of tearing down your body is going to be counterproductive towards your gains. also, don't just think about what you hate while you work out, think about why you're working out in the first place. if you're a family man....think "im going be be big and strong for my family to make sure no man can ever step to me or my family" or to be that rock your family can depend on... I could go on and on but hope this little bit helps.

    Make sure your caloric intake is less than what you burn and you will lose weight. I'd follow a Mediterranean eating style with encourages vegetables , fish and not so many carbs. You could also follow a Keto diet but that would only be a quick jump start toward your goal. Diets offer short term results for a short duration of time. to retain any type of progress gained, you have to change your lifestyle. change the way you eat and learn to make good choices when you eat. making the right choices will ensure you will keep the weight off. drink plenty of water. remember this when you eat. 1/3 of your stomach for food, 1/3 for water, and 1/3 of your stomach for air ( to breathe) simple and easy to follow. hope this helps

    I have started working out after being a couch potato for so many years. Im in my 40's and am excited but fearful of the inflammation. However I know I have to go easy to slim down this stomach and tone the muscles. The infammation is horrible but I found a drink on geemacreview.wordpress.com that will help out with that plus help with the weight loss.

    Try videos instead of reading. I find that I learn better by seeing someone attempt to perform an exercise or talking about a diet. Could allow for learning while not being distracted by long articles.

    If you want to get the best out of your nutrition, the first thing you must do is to clear out the body of bad toxins and fill it up with antioxidants. This allows for your cells to function at an optimal pace so you can have an easier time with dieting and losing weight. I talk about it more over here healthhorizon779253930.wordpress.com/2018/10/10/the-red-tea-detox-a-dieters-tea-for-weight-loss/

    Anyways, good luck and cheers.

    Live Your Healthiest Life with Lean Mean Green Drinks!

    Finding a trainer with a fat burning program that specifically worked for me. Finally some person who created an exercise program that fit me and my goals! The combination of an exercise routine and smart diet created by this trainer. Really burned fat fast and boosted my natural energy. With the help of a good exercise plan and a great fat burning meal plan. Filled with really delicious healthy green drinks. I came across a couple of great effective programs healthfix.ga or mindbodyonline.com. These trainers program consist of 80% diet, because weight loss is 80% of what you eat. The other 20% has to do with exercise and your lifestyle.
