I do not think it's a good idea. Higher than normal levels of protein intake is useful if you are looking to add muscle, your cardio class will have very little muscle building impact, also, some carbs and fats will be more useful for performance in your cardio class. If you still want to take whey supplements, go for the cheapest that taste, there are ...

Is this a good idea? What sort of whey protein should I go for? The Internet has loads of suggestions but I trust this community more. No this is an awful idea. First off Whey Protein is fast digesting so is only really beneficial after a muscle building workout. You need fats and/or carbs before doing cardio. You'd be better served making a simple ...

I'd start by reducing the weight until your body fat is 15%, while working out of course, to reduce muscle loss. Then add calories until you're at a slight positive balance, like 250-500 kcal/day. Adding more than that is too much, you can't pack on that much muscle so it'll be fat instead. Being a vegetarian is not a problem if you know basic food and ...

First you must understand why you can't lose weight by eating a bit more or less. It is instructive to watch this documentary. If you eat more your metabolic rate increases while if you eat less your metabolic rate decreases, the whole point of that is to make sure your fat reserves don't get depleted over time. Your problem is that your body is regulating ...

To lose weight, your main goal is to lessen the total number of calories your body is left with on a daily basis. This is not the same as "lessen the total number of calories you intake". What your body is left with on a daily basis is the total sum of what you intake minus what you use/burn/lose. You need to maximize both of these in order to get fast ...

I think you first have to relax and be positive about the changes you will have and let be at ease for a couple a weeks, just now you're trying too many things and remember that for a plan or a diet to work it has to be proved on certain period, give it 4 weeks at least until you observe progressive results and if the plan is good stick with it, if not try ...

If you're undereating too much, your body wont lose weight. It'll retain fat as a preservation method because it feels undernourished. That's why starving kids pictures always have distended large stomaches but their face and muscles are emaciated.

You don't mention your activity level, but assuming it's very low (add extra cals for any exercise), your daily requirement for keeping the same weight is 1857 kcal. If you aim for 1 pounds of weight loss per week, you should eat 1357 kcal/day. If you actually eat according to what you wrote, you should be losing weight. Are you sure you're being honest ...

Why can't I lose weight? Usually, I would advise people to eat less than they usually do (causing a caloric deficit) as I don't really advocate people tracking every single food they eat. However, if you really want to make a huge impact on your weight loss journey, start by calculating your TDEE. Protein intake 1g per pound of bodyweight, fat intake of ...

You drink protein shake to complement your protein intake, regardless of training days or times, unless you are very experienced timing doesn't really matter.

The bad sides of Lays is having so much fat(also trans fat) and potato is starch, so not so much difference from sugar. The fat in snickers is from peanut and its a good fat source. The only bad thing in Snickers is sugar. In this two i absolutelly chose snickers. But for snacks i sugeest u to try protein bars. They are delicious and healthy and the most ...

Depends on your lifestyle, if you eat sugar very rarely, then maybe the snickers bar is better, but I'd dare to say that sugar is worse than salt for most people. Sugar is not just calories with high glychemic index, it's 50% fructose, which can only be metabolized in the liver. This can cause fat accumulation in and around the liver which is most likely ...

It's just not OK but is also recommended. When you end your exercises your body needs food, especially proteins and good carbs !! But i won't enter in nutritional aspects of this because your question appear to be about hygiene. It's ok to eat if you just wash your hands, there's no harm on that because normally the rest of your body won't touch your food ...

No, there is no food that you can't eat occasionally just because you wan't to be healthy doesn't means you can't eat McDonalds or coke nevermore. I won't say about the difference of salt vs sugar because you probably know about them and there's a lot of info on them on internet. But i will say that if you aren't professional athlete or bodybuilder you ...

Is it okay to instead eat a full meal after those 15-20 minutes before taking a bath if I just wash my hands? Yes, there is no set time for you to consume your post workout meal.
