While it is not entirely true as it's not scientifically proven that you can not gain muscle and loose fat at the same time. It could be possible through proper planning and very intense diet regime. I personally managed to stay at 160 lbs while lowering my BF percentage to 8%. You just need proper planning and determination.

No. When you're in a calorie deficit, your body must burn fuel to make up for that deficit. That fuel can be muscle or fat. When you lift weights, you are signalling your body not to burn muscle, and to burn fat instead. Your body will not create new muscle in a deficit. That would simply be counterproductive, using up more calories and creating an even ...

Agree Christopher, pre/post doesn't matter. If you are eating enough protein, you will likely still be digesting protein when you workout and for the next few hours after. Do what makes you feel better. Pre will give you more energy, but I personally do IF and lift fasted, waiting till after I workout for my first meal. Sometimes its a shake, sometimes ...

To make this pretty simple. There are a lot of allowances allowed by the FDA and in other countries it can be even more lax. First the companies can use basically who ever they want to do calorie/analytical analysis. They can choose from 1 of 10 reports they get to best serve their target audience. To take it another step there are also rounding ...

The choice of whether to use protein shakes, how much, and how often is primarily a nutrition question. Strength training does increase your need for protein, however there are several recommendations that are simply overkill. I recommend reading a good primer on protein requirements called "The Three Laws of Protein"--which is designed for people who ...

In other words, if you live in a country or town where seafood is plentiful it may very well be a cheaper form of protein. Unfortunately, some areas of the world it seems that all food is ...

I recommend a low fat, low carb whey protein isolate drink in place of the chicken breast if you are OK with switching to a drink. I work at a health food store and we help many people supplement their diets/lifestyles with whey protein. It is not just used for body builders or people trying to get buff, protein is something your body needs and most people ...

Preparing chicken breasts are probably the fastest thing ever, and I really do not think anything is much cheaper. But other good sources are: Cottage cheese, skim milk, Skyr, eggs and tuna (stolen from other answers). From (Berin Loritsch) you could look into local sources of cheap and good protein. Back to the breasts! Buy a bunch of breasts. ...

6: No, it it is not good if you eat oats every meal of the day. "Whey" protein is nothing magical. It's just a particular food that has a rather decent nutritional profile and there happens to be a ton of the stuff because of dairy production overall. Ballpark you should shoot for 1 gram or so per pound of body weight. Some folks say half as much, some ...
