For better or worse, there are common approaches that work for 99.99999% of all people. They rely on consistency, discipline, and following the evidence. Get your diet dialed in. Figure out how many calories you need, and track what you eat for at least two weeks. Watch Fed Up if you can. Barring being an ultra-marathon runner, it is way too easy to eat a ...

Currently there aren't any available studies that I can find that examine IF solely for weight loss/fat burn effects. I can find quite a few studies showing the efficacy of intermittent fasting and calorie restriction on a whole host of body systems, but I can't find any addressing IF by itself, which means that you can't distinguish between weight loss ...

Welcome to the Fitness SE! First off, well done on your weight loss so far! It takes a special kind of endurance to lose weight at that rate. Now, when you say that your weight loss has stalled, do you mean it has stalled completely? It is very likely that as you began lifting weights, your body started putting more of the diet into use, because when you ...

I am doing stronglifts on a deficit (1760 calories a day). I am 5'7" and weigh 173. I was 172 when I started back on the program.

Body fat is simply caused by eating carbohydrates, which ...

While I can't provide you with a sortable "fullness factor" database - here's exactly how I would get a list of the foods you're looking for... First, you need a sortable list - and you can download the USDA nutrient database in excel here: http://www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=23634 You can begin with sorting all the foods ascending by calories ...

This depends on how long you have been on that program really, and how long you have been exercising and dieting in general. That looks like a decent diet, and with a high-intensity form of exercise (lifting weights) 5 days a week your body composition (how much muscle and fat you carry) should improve quite quickly even on a "bulk". Maybe up the intensity ...

Rok I have been doing IF for a year or so. In absence of any clinical trial and while I am not strictly answering your question, I am hoping that you really want to give IF a go. Consider this: By giving a large time gap between your last meal of the day and first meal of the next day, what will your brain and body be running on? We can only store 100 ...

This was covered in: What's The Right Diet For You? A Horizon Special and there appears to be a few bits in the associated free interactive eBook. Essentially the thought is that intermittent fasting (IF) is a useful dieting technique, for people that they categorise / profile as "Constant Cravers", as the body will produce appetite suppressing ketones in ...
