There willpower is strong that they never strive for delicious food? First of all they have massive incentives - millions of dollars - second of all they are surrounded by dieticians and trainers who choose their food for them at most hours of the day. Their job is eating well and training for a role. How they workout being on such ...

Is it better to focus on one group of muscles each day of weightlifting? You will be very well served by doing Starting Strength of Stronglifts 5x5. Ignore everything you've ever been told, and follow either of those two programs for 6-9 months like a religion. Do you think I should do more cardio than 30mins, if I can hold it?(Time is currently ...

Strength programs like 3x5, 5x5, or other low-to-mid-rep heavy lifting programs are well suited to maintaining the same weight while doing body recomposition. Just don't eat a tremendous amount. The other option, which I like quite a bit, is to eat as much as possible of high-quality foods (meat, veggies, fish, eggs, dairy) while maintaining a high ...

The real answer can only be provided to you by a health professional, but I can give you some things to consider and educate yourself on in advance. Do some research and have a serious conversation with your doctor. You may already be experiencing insulin resistance. This means that your arteries are routinely being doused with fatty deposits that are ...

To decrease your fat percentage, you need to lose fat, increase lean muscle mass, or do both. There are two approaches used for this. You can do a "steady state approach" where you eat enough to keep your weight constant and exercise enough so that you don't lose muscle at the same time. This is known as "recomposition". You can do the "bulk/cut". In a ...

Are you losing weight at all? How are you measuring your fat percentage? Scales that use bioelectric impedance are not very reliable. However, make the best of it and always measure in the morning, before breakfast. Count you calories, make a conservative estimate of your calorie expediture, adapt your diet to the expenditure and you will lose weight, and ...

Good news is that you have realized early enough that you could be in danger of type 2 diabetes and you may already be in fact a bit insulin resistance. I have been able to reverse my dad's pre-diabetes purely by controlling his diet. I have also been able to improve blood lipid markers for my elder brother. Here are my suggestions and recommendations ...

Back before Costco, Lean Pockets, and Pepsi I'm sure the relationship between energy levels and hunger was a bit more straight forward. Hunger is caused by a peptide (cousins of a hormone) called ghrelin. A lot of things can cause this to rise and fall, including sleep schedules. Most people notice that on days where they get poor sleep, the next day they ...

Lifting for optimal weight/muscle gain is not optimal for burning calories or building endurance. If your goal is to burn more calories, run. Running can burn up to 1000 kcal/hour at best, you'll never reach those kinds of numbers weight lifting, even considering that weight lifting increases your metabolism for a long time. It should also be noted that ...

You are worth your name. Your regime looks pretty strong, but you could try a few things to make it more effective. Firstly, as you said yourself, try to get more sleep. Rest is critical if you are working out this hard. I had significant results when I started sleeping for almost 9 hours. Secondly, your diet looks pretty good,but you could try a few ...

I agree with just about everything Eric said, especially Starting Strength and Stronglifts 5x5. Another I would consider is the Wendler's 5/3/1 program. Which ever you decide, stick with it for at least 6 months. A year would be better. You will see great results. I slightly disagree with the cardio. My personal opinion is to do what is commonly referred to ...
