    Okay... people forget sometimes that calories actually DO count for something! If you're not eating less energy than you're using, you won't lose fat. Period. End of story. It doesn't matter how many...

    This... but may have to adjust calorie levels to suit your size (for example, I'm super small so eat fewer calories to lose weight). If you're quite tall, you may need to adjust upwards a bit.

    For starters it's ridiculous to dismiss 20lbs as "nothing". It's more important to know what your body composition is than what you WEIGH.

    I had a DEXA scan the other day. Going in, I considered...

    I do feel pity for some parents of overweight kids, as I have an overweight son too, and honestly our diet isn't THAT bad, and he's never had free access to a lot of the junk that his peers get....

    I do CrossFit and I have never seen the "glorification of rhabdo"... umm no... they don't. They really don't want their followers to get rhabdo. In fact, it was through CF that I learned about...

    I don't see a problem with that policy, quite honestly! If the doctor says you should get a blood test, and you say "No, thanks" why should he/she try and force you to have it? If the doctor advises...

    I would be more productive without Internet, but at the same time I rely on it a lot too. I can use it on my phone, but I don't pay enough for my phone to get much at all (so I tend to go over or...

    You can't have NO metabolic rate. You just can't! The only people with no metabolic rate are dead ;). Your brain uses energy, your heart uses energy, your lungs use energy, you use energy when you...

    I bought some gloves and loved them at first... until I realised how much harder they made it to do certain things :( mostly, they made it harder for me to grip (I have small hands), so when...

    Yes, I think this is probably true... I doubt it's the C-section that's responsible for the flabby belly skin. In my case it's just over stretched skin I guess??

    There is a theory, though, that...

    Go somewhere inbetween unweighted and heavy! At least, that's my current theory ;). I find it hard to push myself to squat to failure on what is very heavy for me... BUT I can squat to failure using...

    Yes, this. Doing the push press makes it easier to lift a heavier weight. A strict press has no drive from the knees at all! (I think both are valid, but shouldn't be compared to each other in terms...

    I guess my point is that I've seen some strong people who don't look overly bulky (particularly women). They seem to be able to lift a lot more than most, without looking comparatively larger.

    Err is it just hypertropy or strength too? Sure your muscles may grow as much, but are they as strong afterwards? I just can't see lifting lots of reps at 30% of 1 RM being an effective way of...

    When I first went primal I easily lost a steady amount of weight... For a few weeks. And that was it! I started Crossfitting and gained muscle, and lost no more fat.

    I wonder if the whole short man complex is why generally taller men have preferred me over shorter ones... I once liked a short guy of about 5'4" and he went after my 5'8" friend... I got the feeling...
