comment How can I consume more calories without feeling bloated?
@adrian Good news! Dietary fat is not the same as body fat. Dietary carbohydrate and caloric surpluses play a much more significant role when it comes to storing fat on the body.

comment Is a vibrating belt not effective in reducing tummy fat?
@michael It seems that those studies are about vibration platforms, not belts. Regardless, I found their results (and those of some similar studies) either unconvincing or pointing to zero or very little effect.

@michael We're better than Y!A because we enforce quality in grammar and we try to cultivate a community of experts. However, we're not skeptics.SE, which has a reference requirement (which has its problems) on all answers. Extracting your references would make a fine answer. But in this case the question was a quickie, and so I thought a simple quickie answer was sufficient. However, you're absolutely right that a better answer would explain the science and/or have references.

@michael Can you find evidence that it works? Better yet, post your own answer with evidence either way. Burden of proof is on the claim that it's effective. Evidence of absence is what they call difficult.

comment Why did I not gain weight when having 4000 calories a day?
@VISQL Please don't recommend BMI as a measurement of fitness or body composition. It is fatally flawed in so many ways.

I need to note that BMI should not in any way be used for this purpose.

comment Are you prone to injury directly after weight lifting?
Have you gotten a form check in person or in video? You might be doing a lift wrong and screwing up your back.

comment Are you prone to injury directly after weight lifting?
How much are you deadlifting, and how much does your child weigh? Serious question. And how "very painful" and "really do get hurt" are we talking? Wow that's an impressive soreness that takes me to a new plane of existence! or I have pulled a muscle in my back and I am now injured?
