comment Developing slow transition in muscle-up
I think proper technique is usually critical for the long run. I would focus on an even "pop", even if it means you can do fewer of them for now. Once you have the technique down, strength will come through repetition.

comment How often can a person work on their Abs?
Excellent viewpoint, and what I actually do myself. However, if squats are the daddy of all exercises, then deadlifts are the grand-daddy. :-)

I assume you meant complex carbs instead of simple... rollback if I erred.

comment Tricks to lose weight in 48 hours
Yes, in this time frame (and using scale weight as the measure) all you can do is get rid of water/glycogen, which means convincing your body to get rid of the excess water it has and staying away from carbs so that you don't accumulate more.

comment How to sculpt masculine VS feminine chest?
I have a feeling this has everything to do with genetics (and perhaps steroids) and very little to do with a specific workout.

comment Is it necessary to eat fewer carbs in order to lose weight?
@victoriah It is pretty vague - I was assuming that you were using the readout from treadmills, etc. to get that figure. I'm not sure where e.g. dummies.com gets their data...

comment What are the nutritional benefits of saturated fats?
Hmm, it's difficult to classify a diet as "saturated fat". You don't sit down to eat a plate of sat. fat, you sit down and eat a steak. The most prevalent fatty acid in beef fat, btw, is oleic acid, which is same unsaturated fat that makes up the bulk of olive oil! Stearic acid (which is actually saturated) only comes in #2.

comment What are the nutritional benefits of saturated fats?
The problem with balance between omega3 & 6 is that a typical Western diet is over-heavy with omega-6. I read a stat that the typical American eats on the order of 20-30x the amount of omega-6, when the ratio should be about even. I'm guessing that many people on this site consciously watch that ratio, but I think it's also a safe bet that almost noone needs more omega-6! :-)

@Natalie Barnett I think that your other comment-turned-answer is best posted as an update to this answer. Have done so for you, and deleted the other answer. You can edit this answer further if you'd like to tweak the merge.

comment Is it necessary to eat fewer carbs in order to lose weight?
I'm torn here. The answer "no you don't need to eat low-carb to lose weight" is correct, but take issue with some of the explanation. For example, "fat from your food" is not necessarily converted directly to body fat; the vector from starch or sugar to body fat is much more direct.
