Is It Normal To Have A Belly When You Relax? Absolutely! If you've got a gut, you've got a gut; you can't be tensing your body all day; that will wear and tire you out quickly. Should You Have A Belly When Relaxed? If your goal is to have six pack, it's not acceptable. Apart from any medical issue, I see it as a result of two issues: Your body fat % ...

First and foremost, I'd like to remind you that fat and weight are not synonymous, but they are related. It is possible to gain weight and lose fat, but it is also difficult. I'm missing critical detail about your trainer, such as who he has trained and the effect he has had on those clients. If your trainer is a reputable person who is specifying your ...

Use a calorie expenditure calculator like this one to find your target estimate for intake. Count your calories and hit that estimate every day. After one or two weeks, if your weight has not decreased, reduce your caloric intake by 100-500 calories per day. If you eat more calories than you burn, you get fatter. It's that simple.

It depends what is the activity you're performing. If you do high intensity workouts or strength training, most of the energy comes from the carbs (i.e. sugar) because it is easy for body to convert them to energy for fast consumption. However, fats also have their role, yes they are calorie-dense. But they are essential for maintaining harmones etc. So ...

Calories in vs. Calories out is the very first thing you need to truly keep track of. The primary reason for forcing you to do some homework is so that you can see just how close your calorie balance is. Do understand that the calculators are just to get you in the ballpark, and individual physiologies vary. You can only improve what you measure Track ...

Your weight consist of many parts, one is fat matt, one is lean mass, but your water level and the amount of food in your digestive system is another one. This last one can be considered noise, they make it harder to know wether one has lost weight or not. 3 weeks is not necessarily enough time to know if you've actually lost fat mass, 3 weeks of good ...

Someone might give you a better answer, but I'll point to some existing answers that you may want to consider. In short, diet has the largest impact on your body fat stores. Unless you have meticulously counted your calories for several days (2 weeks is pretty good), then you really can't say that you're eating properly. You don't need to count every ...

Yes, it is possible to do so if your target is to gain muscle, but only with an intense physical regiment. With the amount of exercise that you say that you have, a good average would be around 1500-1650. A personal recommendation would be to add around 4-5 sets of 30 push ups, and around 3-4 sets of 60 sit-ups, as well as other muscle-building a day, and if ...

As far as I know, there's no logic behind that belief. Historically speaking, some preservatives have since been proven to have potential negative effects. We no longer pack our meat in cakes of salt. We know that burning the outside of the meat preserves it, but also produces carcinogens. And, of course, we now know that packaging our food inside lead ...

It is perfectly normal. There is nothing inherently wrong with a relaxed abdomen "sticking out" like that. This is how a human beings look like when their body is in rest-and-digest mode. Even the abdomen of strong, perfectly healthy people can stick out, when they relax completely. That does not mean you should spend the whole day like that of course. If ...

You need a solid training program + solid nutrition + discipline to stick with it. Regarding an app, some people like jefit. Zyzz died at the age of 22 in a Thai bath house of a heart attack, no help coming from his use of anabolic steroids and anphetamine like substances (fat burners): try not to be like him too much. If you want to destroy your body and ...

Endurance athletes are aware of the increase in protein metablolism. Therefore there is a trend to prefer energy sources to come from foods that contain fat and protein. For example eggs and peanut butter. When I refer to endurance I am talking about no or little sugars consumed through the exercise. For instance if you cannot exercise for more than an hour ...

Like @MÃ¥rten said, you either lose fat over your entire body, or nowhere at all. You can't pick and choose where to gain/lose fat. As for losing then gaining weight, the difference lies in your diet. You mention that you dieted when you lost weight, and after that you started to gain weight again. This should be a telltale sign. And it's a well-established ...

You cannot burn fat in a specific location, legs do not use only leg fat, and so on. If you want less fat on your legs you will need to reduce fat overall.

For extra info, in case you haven't read in detail during your searches, visceral fat is intra-abdominal, found around your organs and is generally considered a strong indicator of health risk when overweight. It's proving very difficult to find any information on "ideal" visceral fat levels, with everything I come across advocating lowering your visceral ...
