To be 1005 honest when I talk and speak I avoid big scientific words as much as possible and you will notice I avoid big terms. Meaning I really just try to avoid sounding crazy smart and just...

Ketosis and heart rate increase Boydsta 10 1 monthATN_Coaching (1453): Here is my question to this as we have a general basis as to what your goals are. 1.) What are your current numbers, people think they are running keto and really are not as people truly misunderstand. If you have no clue as to how much you are eating issue as that may causing the issues. 2.) How much salt are you taking in, are you using any added sodium at all? 3.)

Dietian Services beltlab 4 1 monthATN_Coaching (1453): I could spam this thread like a creep but in all truth dig more as there is a lot of good information here and other viable places. Before hiring a coach please understand what you are looking to get out of working with one because a shitty coach can actually make your experience/goals a 100% worse for you than an aid. Check out the FAQ section and ask questions here you will get solid content and feedback from good people on here.

Keto advice west6727 1 1 monthwest6727 (1): I've been trying many different diets and ways to lose weight, and after searching and searching found this book. It's great since not only it explains to you how the diet works, but also teaches you how to stay motivated during the process, gives you recipes and also gives you a 21 day meal plan. I lost between 0.5 to 1 pound per day, which for me was amazing. Here's the book if you are interested, I thought I would share this with you since I...

I hated the diet change but there is stuff online about body types and Layne Norton talks about it too.... Don't u guys rate him at all? Maybe I am a sucker that's paying big bucks for crap coaching. Yeah I think I'm going to quit...
Muscle buliding shake? BlakeScar 4 2 monthsBeans (4045): ^That would put fat at about 56% of your diet. I would drop fat and up carbs. Also don't know your weight or activity level, so no idea if 3000cals is enough to build muscle. I cut on 3000. Read the faq thread, you'll find it useful.

Please help me Benchify 2 2 monthsJsn3004 (1102): Start bulking. Everyone on this forum will tell you to bulk. You're 150 and still want to lean out? If you keep cutting you're going to look like you don't lift. 2,000 calories is very low and you already mentioned that you're increasing your cardio. And stop program hoping. Stick to one program.

During the past 7 days out from a competition or an event. I'll load up on water for 3 days (2-3 gallons of water) zero to 40grams of carbs. thenI'll taper down the water from 1 gallon to 8oz of water 3 days out still no carbs. Then on the day before I would cut the water completely load up on carbs and I would continue to load up on carbs the day of but I would slowly add...

BULK SHAKES + GERMAN VOLUME TRAINING HELP Kev521 6 2 monthsHamb0 (2146): Was probably good that you tried it out. GVT is a relatively advanced training protocol, and not great for beginners, simply because, as you say it yourself, its too hard and too much. For a beginner to grow as much muscle as possible within given time, high volumes as in GVT programs is simply just not necessary. Why do 10 sets of 10 reps, when you get maximum muscle growth from 3 or 4 sets of 10?
I can't shred around my belly NenadGM 17 2 monthsBrianz (1): I think you will be able to shred your belly fat if you put some more effort. Have some patience you can achieve your goal. One of my friends who had similar situation had undergone liposuction from a clinic in Windsor, Canada. I think he had more fat around his belly than yours. Since he didn't have any patience he underwent the procedure. He should wait nearly 6 months to see the complete result and his surgeon has asked not a do vigorous...
Uncooked to cooked calories Oslo1234 2 2 monthsATN_Coaching (1453): Yes: if 100 grams of the rice uncooked/dry is 5 pro / 50 carbs / 1 fat it would keep the same macro profile It does "not" work like this for all foods and in general. Pre-packaged foods are actually a lot easier to track as you get the true nutrition associated off the box (generally). If you use a macro track like MyFitnessPal you can just scan the box and boom. Say you took that same rice and did not pay attention or follow the...

AVATAR NUTRITION Newbie misslifty 9 3 monthsHamb0 (2146): As @eknight stated, the amount of calories a relative unit/amount of muscle burns per day, is insignificant compared to other functions of the body. Yes, given the same bodyweight, a more muscular person *could* expend more energy than his/her counterpart, but that is only if you completely take other variables and factors out of the equation. The fatter individual might just have a larger extent of energy expenditure from running other bodily...
Cutting macros Jenrboyle 17 3 monthsFiremanSi (41782): @Jenrboyle NEAT is non-exercise activity thermogenesis it's burning additional calories through moving more and one of the best ways I've found its tracking steps daily especially if ur job doesn't have you mlvng a lot, desk job and such. U can eat more and lose weight when ur daily expenditure is higher absent of gym and HIIT training !!
Personal Trainers??? acoble02 10 3 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6913): Just say no. You won't miss out on anything if you don't go out on a weekend. Just hit your macros, workout, clean up your house. Get shit done. You just sound like you have an extreme lack of self control. Or you just think you wanna train and eat right but you really don't. Ask why you started. That will help get you back on track Also, I'm truly curious. How did you find this forum? The links are all gone off the main...
Thoughts on Fastin Diet Pills? jayjay770 3 3 monthsBeans (4045): My thoughts are that most fat burner pills are overpriced and practically useless. Any advantage you get from their stimulant effects can be gotten with green tea or anything else that's dirt cheap. You can get really lean with a consistant caloric deficit, so spending extra cash when you're not already 7% bf seems silly to me.
How to lose belly fat and keep it off Benzenunovic 6 3 months3rnald0 (10): Agree that magazines are full of bull. You might be able to spot reduce but if it IS possible it will be to such a small degree it's pointless even thinking about it.

Not losing weight? barbellbunny 28 3 monthshaole (1920): @ValMadalinski I'll be honest and admit that I don't know much about fat burners but my rule with supplements is that they should all be used sparingly or as little as possible. You should be getting everything you need from your regular diet/food intake. Fat burners are a "shortcut" and might help cut fat but unless that person learns how to keep the fat off then they will be right back to where they started when they get off the...

Blood Type diet? emmyweird84 13 3 monthsemmyweird84 (409): @Hamb0 I think you're absolutely correct. Our culture features incredible things done in incredible speeds. I think the unfortunate part is that people don't care until it's too late. And like you said, there won't be anything to catch you. Even making the smallest of changes can be beneficial. But what can you do?...Just continue trying to make your own life better I suppose.
Trouble losing fat, 6yr lifting, love advice Jcoff 10 3 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6913): I agree with this advice 100%. You've been dieting for so long your body is used to starving. Slowly give it the food it needs and get reacclimatized to eating 3k calories a day and then try to start cutting again. Also as noted, the percentages listed are correct. Carbs are energy, not the devil.

Bulk Macros nevermore81 4 4 monthsFiremanSi (41782): @nevermore81 ur 205 and were eating 110protein... probably lost a bit of muscle there in those 50lbs. Personally i like meat in my diet so i tend to stick to the old reliable of 1g/lb of protein 205g in ur case. U shouldn't need much more than 400g carbs unless ur very active during the day. Ur also gonna want to moderately ramp in eating 3500 from 2100, so add 250-400cals every 4-7days and monitor weight gain.

Can't seem to cut the belly weight? nevermore81 3 4 monthsnevermore81 (13): I'm on a 2100 calorie a day plan. I eat very clean. I've lost all the weight I have mostly by just eating better and being more active - most of the weight loss came before I started going to the gym regularly. I didn't crash diet or deprive myself during the weight loss. I have still been dropped lbs here and there but mainly have hit a wall. I just recently dropped my calories to 2100, I was at 2300. I am strength training. Mon/Thurs - chest...

What is the best brand of food scale? didi23 2 5 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6913): I used to have a decently expensive one ($50) and i never used its memory features. It was a weight watchers brand scale. I returned that to the person i was loaning it from and bought the dirt cheapest one i could find ($15 on sale) and it has worked just fine. Find something that can weigh in grams, oz, and lb. Also take notice of where the display is. If its part of the scale face, you'll probably end up covering it up with your plate 9/10...

You'll lose a lot of water weight when going into a caloric deficite after bulking whether you eat carbs or not. Might retain a little more water, but fat loss shouldn't be hindered.

Avatar Nutrition Macros... crazy? SanguinousRex 3 6 monthsHamb0 (2146): They are not the enemy, and they could be one of your best friends, in holding on to your muscle mass, while having fuel for good training on your diet. If you have been avoiding carbs for a period of time, and suddenly bump it up significantly, you're going to gain weight on the scale in the form of water. Not fat. You might even have a little bit of bloat for a day or 3, but it'll go away. In exchange the accessability of carbs will lessen...

Diet down to 185 Bubs126 19 6 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6913): Do a test on yourself, you can find your maintenance pretty easy... Download MFP and just track everything you eat on a daily basis. Just eat normally, don't pay attention to the numbers of things you are eating. After a week add total cal and divide by 7. Thats your daily average cal intake. Now look at the days, if they are ALL over the place, 1000,3500,1200 without any real pattern, the results may be skewed but you can still roll with it....

The amount in the green square is somewhat equivant to the quality of your posts. Notice how many threads you have and you have 1 in the box? Clearly people are not interested in your content and perhaps you should spark conversation in a different way... Meaning... Not with videos.

Right now im trying to cut some fat first because of reason (big fatty here), then bulk after i get to reasonable bodyfat. Thanks for the suggestion, appreciate it :)
Stay "Shredded" All Year West165 22 8 monthsFiremanSi (41782): @West165 Those TDEE calculators are only guesstimates... Try find ur own and now is a perfect time to do that. I prefer 1g/lb of protein also, sometimes slightly more but thats a preference even though i know it's not necessary. Also slowly increase your cals back up to bulking cals... normally 100-200cals every 4-7days based on weight increases in the scales. Goal is to be the same weight or slightly over by the time ur at bulking macros.
Calories to macros inaccuracy YM97 5 8 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6913): Food labels are allowed to be within 20% from their actual contents iirc. So often times your bag of chips was actually 13.3 ounces instead of 12.8. Also some companies like to say NO CARB but not mention that there is 12 sugar alcohols and 3G of fiber

Help in Calculating Bulk Calories! Oslo1234 8 8 monthshghani13 (97): @Oslo1234 Aim for between 120-150g protein. That's all you will need. However, make sure you are hitting your other macros too. It's alright if you don't have protein shakes. Google protein rich foods. Yes you can get protein from milk, eggs, chicken etc.

The last 10% - some advice Rraywheel 5 8 monthsRobotEars (1174): That's where adequate protein intake and heavy resistance training come in. Just remember you may have to adjust your macro ratios when you reduce cals--if you're using percentiles--to keep your protein where it needs to be.
What to do now jostrosky 3 8 monthsjostrosky (22): I don't eat anything without weighing and nothing from packages, very strict.

And I started at 3300 and just been dropping ~100 calories a week for adjustment but scale went up. Getting stronger though but muscle is not built that fast and I really don't know if it just a lot of water or what

But I would recommend weighing yourself everyday when you wake up and taking and calculating the average weight each week because weight fluctuates so much. You might weigh more but you could have been holding less water on that day. For all I know you might have to take a dump and that's making you weigh more.

They're all just guidelines, chances are most of them won't be spot on what you need. You CAN take into account lean body mass, but again, it doesn't necessarily mean it's more accurate.

But if u wanted to slam some fast acting carbs i'd do it... intra and/or post workout as thats when your body will soak them up best.

And it includes all the activities so I don't have...
Maintenance Calories eazycoco 3 1 yearBeans (4045): I wouldn't even recalculate when you are done cutting. Too many factors have changed, including weight, activity level, and how your body has readjusted its metabolism. Just add calories slowly back in, maybe 100-200 calories every two weeks until your weight stays the same then starts to go up slowly. Bam, new maintenance. Never heard of Layne Norton's baseline calories. It would all depend on age and activity level.
Before bed. Fayzeh 8 1 yearG3NGHIS (8523): Hey Fayzeh! I don't think a Protein Shake before bed will hurt you at all. I would be more worried about getting all the benefits of 8 hours of sleep with that late night shift schedule of yours!

When I am cutting and in a calorie deficit over time, those refeed days really get me through the week with a high carb day mid week...... FYI (sorry if you already know this info): refeed meals are eaten withing 2-3 hours after your workout. about 1.5x yoru normal daily carbs but all low fat.

5x5 program makes me binge! help queenquebec 25 2 yearsqueenquebec (25): @SOLARSUPLEX It's been better on the binging. I've doing cardio only once a week 45 min.

But, I've also been taking zantrex 3, so that might help a bit.

Am I doing HIIT right? jazus 2 2 yearsLVjack (2749): In theory yes but doing them outside so that you are at a max sprint and propelling your body forward instead of having the ground moving beneath you will always be better. If I use a machine for HIIT I find the stair climber works best. Just my opinion.
Nasty Plateau after an all protein diet trober1010 9 2 yearsBeans (4045): @trober1010 I think you have more to think about than continuing to lose weight. You've already lost a ton of weight, and people aren't really meant to be on a caloric deficit forever. I'd what @eknight said. Learn how to reverse diet, get up to a healthy amount of food, get your shit figured out, then continue to diet. I don't see any reason why you need to lose weight while on vacation.
How to calculate how many calories to eat? calexrose 5 2 yearscalexrose (46): @JHughes thanks for your suggestions!

Rinsing mouth with sugarwater? Corevar 8 2 yearsGetFitGoFigure (121): I have come across this info several years ago as it can, as you say, trick the body into thinking it has gotten energy. Actually, I find this to be effective when I am running a race or really lifting hard. Your body tells you ahead of time that you are out of energy when really you are not yet. You can actually push yourself so much more. What do I do: I suck on a hard candy during races (hoping I dont' choke). But, when I lift, I actually...
Hiit cardio SnackIt 22 2 yearsGetFitGoFigure (121): yes, I agree with upping your fat and carbs, I think at your lowest your fat should be 45-50g so, start at an appropriate amount somewhere higher... keep in a cheat meal (1.5x normal carb level, low fat-50-60 fat?, normal protein) 1x per week within 2 hours after your workout that day. I like to cut calories by alternating each week, take out 5g of fat per day one week, the next week I might take out 10-20 g of carbs, the next I might add...

Nutrition Question TrustMeImLying 8 2 yearsLVjack (2749): Yeah don't waste your money on protein shakes unless you just like them.

Dirty vs Clean Bulk nine0seven 5 2 yearsTritons (670): Do a bulk with a slght calorie surplus, so you wont gain much fat, wich will be hard to loose than. I have done a huge dirty bulk, gain a lot of size and strength, but now that it is time to cut it is really hard for me to go and count calories again and eat normally, because i have used to just eat whatever i want and how much i want, wich was overeating for me almost daily. And now that i am cutting, i sometimes crack and binge wich sucks.

Calculating daily macros Climberchris 10 2 yearsBeans (4045): Strength gains, yes. Very possible. Size, almost impossible. I have no idea how many calories someone would burn doing a specific activity. Honestly, I think it's a big waste of time worrying about that. I personally calculate how many calories I need to eat to accomplish my goal, and just eat the same amount every day. Can't go wrong.
The Truth on Sodium Jelet 19 2 yearsSharkoon1 (565): I will cut back on water, and increase my salt, well that could be a reason im sometimes so dehydrated and fatigue, also the fact that im sweating like a dog.

You take vitamins and probiotics as well. yes you do cut down the calories though. it was created by an accredited cardiologist.

Where do I begin? kirchekai25 5 2 yearshollyhopeful5678 (1684): Tilted Kilt?? That's my guess. Great tips already posted, so I'll just add this from my own personal experience. I would separate your plans from your husband. He isn't going to lose his job, so he likely isn't going go give up the wings and pizza. But everywhere that sells wings and pizza also sells salad so don't give him the power to drag you down, you can make your own choices to eat well and exercise even if he doesn't.

Make a simple excel spreadsheet that averages your weigh ins. Use the averages, not your daily weight. And don't worry so much about the ab definition in the mirror. That will change everyday. Just focus on keeping the weight on the bar the same, and the weight on the scale going down. DO NOT ADD MORE CARDIO. Just double-check all your math...

Problems hitting the correct macros dreamopolis 6 2 yearsBeans (4045): Definitely don't need that much protein. If you're having trouble hitting it, I'd just drop your goal.

maintenance calories during a deload. csizemore21 5 2 yearsTamere02 (1474): @csizemore21 Personally think it depends on whether you on a surplus or deficit.

Without the activity you will probably be around maintance so will come back the week after around the same weight and feeling fresher. If your on a surplus then I would say depends on the type of deload, if its completely inactive then I would probably reduce kcals a tad and if its a deload in the...

Length of Cut? SOLARSUPLEX 8 2 yearsPhil_Babitsky (10): Essentially the longer you take to cut the better of you will be in the long run and will be able to maintain your condition without developing an eating disorder. Of course I'm talking from a perspective of a competitive bodybuilder, but the rule of thumb is 12-20 weeks. The 500g (a bit more than 1 pound) of bodyweight per week is a good goal.
Help For a Newbie Riksey84 6 2 yearsGetFitGoFigure (121): Def. up the carbs! You need more calories. You can find a helpful macro calculator at IIFYM.com. I use it all the time and find it to be the best one. Do you have a refeed or cheat meal day? You may find that very helpful. It will keep you from looking flat as well as keeping your metabolism up. You can also cycle your carbs where you have a low, medium and high carb day. Good luck.
Please critique diet + training! Barbell_Jedi 8 2 yearsSOLARSUPLEX (6913): You have basically broken your macros. Easy fix is to add 50 calories a week until you are back to a normalish number of calories. Hopefully with little weight gain. If you notice you are gaining weight. I'd say more than a quarter pound over the course of the week then you need to slow down on the adding of calories.

Try lose around 0.5% of your bodyweight per week. If you lose more, increase calories, if u lose less, drop calories ;)
How does my intake look? natiann123 4 2 yearseknight (53968): Looks like there's not enough calories or carbs, but without you listing that I can't be certain. How many total kcals and grams of protein, carbs, and fats do you consume daily? -3X
hitting calories but not my macros?? j_r_g_6 10 2 yearseknight (53968): Nothing wrong with liking your protein, but if you are natural, you're consuming nearly 90 grams more than you need or could use for muscle repair, so yeah, I would say that may be considered ridiculous.

Technically it's .86g/lb but on a cut 1g/lb should be more than enough If you have to stick to some silly "clean" diet just get it from chicken breasts and eggs, if you want to go the scientifically proven way you can get it from eggs, lunch meat, steak, protein shakes, everything, damn near everything has protein in it dude.

You should drop to your maintenance and then start by dropping your cals really really slow so your metabolism gets used to it. Keep mirror and weight track and then if u start seeing your weight keeps the same, you start lowering again, then you add more cardio action, and other "cards" that may be useful like carb cycling, refeeding, etc...
Calorie Calculator Question correra911 4 2 yearseknight (53968): Everyone is different. A very strict cut, IMO, shouldn't ever be longer than 10 or so weeks.

leaning/shredding diet advice needed! DaveCL9 6 2 yearsNorIda (45463): Your poss are full of misconceptions. You aren't looking shredded because you don't have much muscle mass to utilize I would bulk. Get some mass, the worry about getting diced. You need to read up on macros and focus in your diet, as it is what's going to give you the results you desire.
Soy Protein: What's the deal? Hewy007 7 2 yearsCherokeeDoc (13): You can get a panel done to tell you if you have general negative reactions to soy. If you don't test positive for any, then you should be fine, but still limit use. Whey is ideal and doesn't have the deleterious estrogenic effects of soy (i.e. effects on hormones). The panel might also tell you about your reactivity to dairy, which might be a reason to stay away from whey. Good idea to get one done.

Don't Know What To Do!! dserious111 17 3 yearsdserious111 (130): @mikew hey man thanks a lot!!! I'll get to work on my lats right away then. That was the main concern, the waistline. I've read to slowly increase my cals 100 a week. Hope this is correct. 190p 140carbs 80fats is what I've readjusted my macros to. I'm at 1900 calories and will up it starting Sunday for the new week
Question About Counting Macros correra911 7 3 yearsFrostshock (13309): Anything that is fat based is usually more calorie dense. Olive/coconut oil for example I will track because just 1 tbs is 120 cals. Things like Ketchup that are only 40cals per 2tbs or something like that which are more carb based I tend to ignore unless I'm slathering them on something.
Is 30% fat too much? ajm87 10 3 yearsnerdmuscle87 (1): Like everyone else said, I don't think 30 is too high: Mainstream nutrition experts seem to recommend 30% as the upper limit http://www.mayoclinic.org/fat-grams/expert-answers/FAQ-20058496) And the Layne Norton cutting guide on this very site puts 30% as an upper limit so that you don't crowd out room in your diet for other macros. If you've ever read Lyle McDonald's work, he seems to like 20-25% fat. As always, different sources say...

But if ur dieting u want something that will fill you up for longer.. i.e. sweet potato, brown rice, basmati rice, wholemeal bread was good also.. too much is bloating though.

LongBeachPatriot 1 3 yearsLongBeachPatriot (127): http://examine.com/supplements/Agmatine/ It appears that Agmatine and CitMal/Arginine work antaganotically to each other, yet I see many pre wo powders with both these ingredients. Anyone take both at the same time and see good results? I just dont see how taking both would be good because Agmatine is an NO inhibitor while CitMal and Arginine increase NO. Sounds counterproductive to me.

Your car runs very effectively with slightly fouled spark plugs, a slight dirty air filter, and oil that is over 3 months old. It is not optimal, but it gets you where you are going very...

It's hard to lose waist fat RHGF 13 3 yearsFrostshock (13309): You don't just lose waist fat. That's just not how it works. If someone lost waist fat specifically doing some routine or diet they probably already had a genetic tendency to lose fat in that area first no matter what. The point of the matter is you need to lose overall body fat to lose waist fat. Find your maintenance, cut the cals slowly to a max of 500 deficit, get your macros, train, and sleep. All you need to do.

285 lbs 6"1 and 25 years old. leafs1989 6 3 yearsjja0016 (829): Actually I don't have any experience at that weight so listen to this because I'm thinking maybe because your ratio of fat to muscle is so high in comparison you dont have much muscle to lose so it really may be the fastest most effective way to lose it all without losing much muscle until a certain weight. Your reverse diet when you do get to your goal is going to be extremely slow I'd imagine though. Definitely speak to a dietitian...
anyone here use vitargo? nutellafreak 4 3 yearsOptimusPrime (1257): It's a good supplement, a little pricey though. A lot better then its alternative supplements and to answer what I think is your question; yes it can have its place in your diet if you're struggling to meet macros. However, I wouldn't spend money on it if your issue is 'disliking eating' (which is batshitcrazy!). If you train to a point of depletion and actually tax your system...so if you're 'training' like 90% of the gym population don't...

Cannot shift the weight!! b_ellie 13 3 yearsteewhat (1891): 3 weeks is nothing, try not to focus so much on the scales, but the progression of your weights and how you look visually and Id highly suggest switching your chicken every few meals, that shit will start to get boring AF! on another note, does your PT even lift, does he ACTUALLY know and understand what hes talking about when it comes to the nutrition side of things?

Elliott Hulse Fat Loss RHGF 2 3 yearsTyr (163): My gut says no, drinking 2 gallons a day sounds excessive, that you walk around and store toxins in the body that needs to be cleansed out for 2 weeks sounds like bs. Would rather refeed for 2 days and then go back on a kcal deficit with a good macro split.
Clear up a simple question Hewy007 3 3 yearsadam82a (3100): Not quite true, surplus of carbs barely gets converted into fat (also known as de novo lipogenesis) in humans normally, only a few gram maybe. Dietary fat is stored as fat. A surplus of calories which some are carbs will make the body use the carbs for energy and the fat will be stored as fat. Insulin inhibits the lipolysis (the break down of fatty acids) but not the actual beta oxidation (fat burning) process I believe.

Meal Frequency JoelGSK 6 3 yearseknight (53968): IMO, yes. Minimal neurological adaptation for maximal muscle fiber recruitment is 6-8 weeks.

It may be the fact that milk has very high levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), a peptide hormone that has been shown to have some relationship to accelerated growth in mammals."

He was VERY good. performs chiropractor and ART as well. Really knows his stuff. After going through the motions he came to the conclusion that the strain is not the Sartorius muscle but rather the Rectus Femorus at the hip insertion point. Thats right near the sartorius insertion point. Also, he saw a slight mis-alignment of my right hip, and some lower lumbar tightness. I had strained my psoas muscle last year...
Diet on a rest Day? jamieboy22 2 3 yearsSeahawkMuscle (277): I wouldn't change it at all on rest days. If you're calories are around the proper range it won't effect anything by eating the same amount each day. Plus it's one less thing you have to worry about.

For new users asking about macros/iifym fLx_ 5 3 yearsAustralianOak (1504): I am definitely an advocator of IIFYM from a body composition standpoint. But there are (as always) people who will abuse it and use it as an excuse to eat poorly. From a nutrition standpoint getting carbs from sweet potatoes is better then pop tarts obviously. But IIFYM has been a great realisation to debunk alot of myths and I think it has helped alot of people achieve their goals.

How much fat daily? _RudeCrew 21 3 yearsFiremanSi (41782): I had to remove yolks from my diet also bro. I'm used to 3-4whole large eggs in the morning... now i'm down to 1large egg and 3egg whites.... Has to be done dude. Defo seen a diff when i dropped the fats a bit man so its worth it.
A lot of carbs = BAD gas for me ajm87 8 3 yearsFiremanSi (41782): I'd take ur fat intake down personally. Bring it down to 72.5g's which is roughly 0.5g/lb of bodyweight for you. Fats can be the source of gas.. i.e when u eat high fatty meals... after pork chops, Pizza, meals with cheese and mayo and coleslaw, burgers, high fat steaks. SO if u reduce ur fats and increase ur carbs instead. Try this for a week and see how u feel.

Do you "carb up" before lifting? mikew 30 3 yearscazthetrainer (7): No carbs before a workout for me. I find training fasted with the exception of coffee in the a.m. I am able to focus better and maintain intensity throughout the workout.
Coffee pre workout Hamer93 23 3 yearscazthetrainer (7): I hit the weights EARLY and I always have 1.5cups black coffee fresh;y brewed with 5g creatine and 1tbsp coconut oil. Works like a charm :) Did a quick blog post on it: http://www.cazthetrainer.com/blogs/news/8401393-fats-in-my-pre-workout
should i eat at maintenance? KingLeonidasXIV 5 3 yearsDanimal_88 (9757): Eat intelligently meaning wherever go look to eat lean meats, vegetables, and fruits. Stay away from cheesy or heavily sauced meals. Most importantly - LIVE LIFE. Don't be afraid to eat some desert or enjoy some good foods. The beautiful thing about bodybuilding is that is a life time passion. A couple days are just a drop in the well when compared to ten years of intelligent dieting and training
All you need is protein. KFC 11 3 yearsrememberthis (553): Basically what EK said. Except I follow a school of nutrition that states the only macro nutrient we do not need to live (living is not limited to bodybuilding) are carbs. (Doesn't mean we shouldn't have carbs, by any means -- most sources of micronutrients come in the form of carbs.)
MyFitnessPal Macros KnifeHands 12 3 yearsNorIda (45463): Give it a shot dude! See if you can consistently hit it for two weeks! It's not terrible by any means! I was getting 120g of fat a day on my bulk. Cause I put cheese on every. Thing. Possible. Lol.

Whaaaaat? KingLeonidasXIV 8 3 yearsTyjaws (211): @kingleonidasxiv here's the deal brother. at 2200 kcals you were consuming 15400kcal/per week. if you're really feeling bad subtract your 3k cheat meal from your overall total cal number for next week. It would set you at roughly 1800/day, that would erase that meal. this is also the principle carb cycling uses. by looking at weekly caloric numbers, it sets your cal number per day lower to make up for the "refeed" which really is...
Slow bulk? TigerBlood 8 3 yearsTyjaws (211): would it make you feel good to have chiseled abs? You've put in a lot of work already why not just see it through and then bulk, with ultra ripped abs.

TOP 5 BB Supps that DONT WORK ! Elliot Hulse FiremanSi 23 3 yearseknight (53968): I've read enough research on leucine and it's value in MPS and the mTOR pathway to believe that BCAAs have their place way ahead of many other supps (ie, preworkouts). The same can be said for HMB, and for the same reason. The thing that holds me back from saying they're a "must have" for everyone is that most people who strength train get enough/more protein than they need, so they have their bases covered. The glaring exception is...

Eating after training cassious 6 3 yearsDevil82 (1240): @cassious meal timing is irrelevant, unless you are a endurance athlete then best to carb up. Regarding protein, it takes 45 minutes just to pass through your stomach and then it will absorb with a rate of 5-10g an hour or something like that. Worst case see how much protein you ate and calculate if it's enough to last you until you break your fast =)

New Diet Plan- How Many Carbs? LPfit 16 3 yearsFiremanSi (41782): Wake up earlier and get a solid breakfast in and let that be ur foundation for the day. I've easily had a 1000cal bowl of porridge in the morning. U dont need to eat 7times a day. Just 2big meals and maybe a snakc or two and u'll hit ur cals no problem. Plus whats more important than ur health ???
Are my macros correct? ajm87 3 3 yearswannabemuscular (30219): I find when adding or dropping calories it's easiest to manipulate carbs. A cup of rice here, an extra potato there, etc. it adds up quick and I find it easy to eat carbs.

In my country it is difficult to get any peanut butter without sugar added ;/
How much sugar is TOO MUCH per day? ajm87 12 3 yearswannabemuscular (30219): @JordanW But those are nutrient dense foods that bring great value to your diet/nutrition. Of course they should be part of ones diet. Plain old sugar as an additive to sweets, sodas, gainers, etc. adds nothing to a good diet except empty calories. Should be limited. And btw, this is the kind of participation that people want to see you do more of. Good stuff.

food scale KingLeonidasXIV 3 3 yearsDanimal_88 (9757): always go by the scale, nutrition data on labels is almost always based on weight.

Weighing your food is the only way to ensure accuracy. Hell i buy this ciabatta bread that was like 27 carbs based on 1 loaf or 80g. It seemed to good to be true so when i weigh...

You should gain strength and muscle mass while your body does some slight re-composition. Bulking hard at body fat over 15 and 20% doesn't lead to a ton of...

Cutting KingLeonidasXIV 3 3 yearsNeverbackdown19 (183): Yea, like 4real mentioned, the easiest thing to do to ensure you're holding on to as much muscle as possible is keep on lifting heavy! Keep up with your normal routines and rep ranges as you normally would. You may notice some decrease in strength depending on how long your cut is lasting - I usually only notice it the last few weeks of a contest prep, but that's a little more drastic cutting. Keep things as per usual, hit the weights hard,...

Does anyone eat organ meat? cassious Jump to first page39Jump to last page 3 yearsBaiTu (3096): You're wrong. Christians can eat anything. Just read the book of Acts, I forget the exact chapter and verse but the quote is something like it is not one goes into your mouth that makes you impure but what comes out of it. As far as eating or drinking blood, many cultures do that. I remember watching Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and several people would just chug cows blood and get tons of nutrients from it.

Falling of the diet horse Hewy007 3 3 yearsryan_929 (478): If you don't hit macro's on a day, make up for it the next. Even though it's counted daily, As long as you are in taking 'x' amount of calories a week to gain or loose 'x' amount of weight, you will still be good. i,e 3000 cals intake, (Bulking example) Day 1- 2800 cals day 2- 3200 cals Day 3-7 3000 cals, It will still add up to 21,000 cals. Which will still lead to weight gain. (3000 calories was just a figure)

Nutrition Discussion SwoleAnimal 19 3 yearsrememberthis (553): Pork doesn't have a high cholesterol value. It is your body that makes the cholesterol, as with most "cholesterol free" products. And I don't understand your question. Why is having high cholesterol bad or why is it bad to go on the higher cholesterol vector? Regardless of you referring to it, or not, I'm referring to LDL.

Calorie Deficit Refeed? bunter225 7 3 yearsStanimal (622): As bunter225 said it's often done with low car diets and you're trying to refill your muscles with glycogen as you're totally depleted from your workouts and the low carb ingestion. So the refeed should be high in carbs and low in fat with frequent eating. But also for any diet, refeed are important, as you are in a caloric deficit state and so you're body's level of leptin drops and it slows down the metabolism so you're no more burning as...
