The data shows me that steroids are required for building tricep mass!

Tiny quibble: mood altering (i.e. roid rage) may be a myth - claim by Bigger Stronger Faster (interesting video on facts & myths of steroids)

comment Can I skip carbohydrates altogether?
I don't have a reference handy, but as an inspiration for another answer I would look into correlations between very low carb intake and lowered testosterone.

Leangains is a legit strategy, but you need to summarize the approach here - not just leave the link. Why should someone click that link? What if the link goes away...

Please review our help section about what is on-topic - this isn't related to fitness.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about fitness.

comment Simple tips for preventing hunger?
I disagree with the off-topic assessment. Hunger-management seems related to weight loss/body composition, which is on-topic.

This would be a better answer if an overview of your recommended routines were given. The links to the books and to your website can be given as a follow-up for more detail, but should not "linkwall" the actual answer.

comment Troubleshooting “Body By Science” workout
@Ben Nope, I threw this out as bunk a long time ago. I think that Berin is onto something: maybe this could work for a novice. However, almost anything can work for a novice, so I am not a believer.

comment Building muscle and trimming fat at same time? bulking/cutting phases?
As a beginner, you probably CAN lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. Consider barbell training (squats, deadlifts, presses) to replace some of the isolation exercise I infer that you're doing - and I would do the weights before cardio (else you're too tired out to really build strength). Good luck!

comment How many pounds of water retention will be caused by 2300 mg of sodium?
I suspect there are way, way too many confounding factors to answer this in vivo. What is your current electrolyte balance (not just sodium, but all of them)? How hydrated were you? How quickly is that sodium digested, and in what form? How hot is it outside? How much will you sweat? I think you get the idea...

comment Losing weight by fasting every other day?
@JohnP I don't think it has to be about "exercise" per se to be on topic. Body re-composition is fair game.
