I think both @Sean Duggan and @Kneel-Before-ZOD already gives you a great answer. Here I just want to give you several tips on how to find alternative replacement for soda or cokes, etc... I used to be a soda drinker, a lot, and also some iced tea, sweet iced tea, etc... Also I love to eat sweet meat. When I cook chick wings, I will add in a lot of sugar, ...

Purely from a weight perspective (previous posts have covered various things about health) its all about calories in vs calories out. For your current level of activity you will have a level of maintenance calories, the amount of calories you need to eat to maintain your current weight. By creating a deficit (generally dropping by 300-400 calories) you will ...

As you age, your metabolism will naturally slow down. Let that sink in for a second. This means that unless you change your lifestyle, expect your body to increasingly become out of shape. There are many gimmicks for losing weight; many of them, you can actually find online; however, none will help you long-term. Changing your lifestyle doesn't have to ...

You list “bodybuilding” as one of your tags. If this is correct, you may want to check yourself for the symptoms of overtraining. The volume and intensity you describe seems to be a bit much, in my opinion, for a goal of bodybuilding. Do you guys think this strategy is sound? Or am I making another mistake? I don’t see a problem with performing ...

I think it is much better to split them up. If you do them both one after the other, whichever one comes second is always going to suffer as your body will be fatigued. Splitting them up will allow you to hit them both hard and you should see better results. I train weights in the evening 5/6 times a week and I do morning HIIT 2/3 times a week. Also, ...

Doing 30 minutes of walking each day, and doing pull-ups, isn't a bad start to exercise. I assume that your pull-ups are vigorous enough of a workout that you raise a sweat? I'm also assuming, given you don't feel you're that in shape, that that's not 25 pull-ups in one streak? Either way, I'd suggest adding a few more exercises to cover other muscles. If ...

You could try water manipulation. Basic idea is to drink 4 litres of water a day for several days in a row along with carbs restriction. After that you stop drinking, load yourself with carbs and creatine. And observe muscles become back round and your body becomes ripped, while you piss like a horse all day long. Diuretics help as well. This is ...

Read Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle by Tom Venuto. Disregard the unfortunate marketing strategy; it tends to come off as another "get ripped quick" scheme, but it's by far the most comprehensively researched, well-written and approachable take on the subject that I've come across. Note the extremely positive reviews on Amazon. Venuto can explain things much ...

It is both very accurate, and very inaccurate. When you gain fat, you gain fat in all the fat repositories. On the same coin, when you lose fat, you lose it in all the same places at once. Important: You can't pick and choose where to gain/lose fat. The reason why it seems like you gain it in certain areas more than others (like belly and butt), is ...

There might be a way to reduce the size of your legs, but I don't know what it is. Instead, I'd recommend A) not worrying about it and B) making your upper body enormously muscular and awesome, to reduce disproportion. For instance, maybe only do squats and deadlifts every other workout, while continuing to do upper-body work? So, every workout involves ...

I do not intend to offend you but are you sure it is muscle or fat? It's probably more fat than muscle you may have genetics favoring to store more fat on legs than on belly. If it is fat well you can not target fat loss on a specific area(if it was possible then life would be so easy right?) but you can achieve a smaller legs by doing diet and reducing ...

The Accumeasure gives good instructions on their site with an instruction manual and how to measure videos. They state to begin: with your fingers about 2-3 inches apart but it goes on to say that, If the site contains a large amount of fat, you will need to increase the distance between your thumb and index finger in order to grasp and pull the ...

A number of academic studies have tried to apportion / quantify the percentage of body fat by compartment (bit of the body), but they all appear to have a standard error in the order of +/- 4%. This error is similar to that in the normal guestimates as to your total body fat, so similarly should be taken as a rough guess e.g. a 10% figure will correlate with ...

Have you read the guide on the BrianMac site, or had a look at YouTube? Personally I use the Android BioMetrIcs app, to record / plot / compare my details.
