comment Is a drastic calorie reduction harmful?
According to the online calculator at myfitnesspal, my daily intake was 3950 calories, 389 carbs, 168 fat and 168 protein. I'm still learning how this works but from what I understand, only my caloric intake was unusually high.

comment Is a drastic calorie reduction harmful?
Thank you for your answer. Just a follow up question about the amount of calories I was consuming per day. For a long time I would drink 2 liters of dr pepper a day (800 calories), eat a box of chicken strips (2400 calories) and generally a pizza or some other snack (500 calories), so from what I understand I was easily consuming 4000 calories a day. Those foods were not high in fat and had enough protein and carbs to make me meet my daily levels...

comment How does calcium help protein to be absorbed
Thanks for your answer, some great links! It seems that taking calcium supplements would not aid in preventing osteoporosis then....dang.

@Sancho Please keep in mind due to budget limitations I only have access to an adjustable dumbbell set.

@Sancho Because I'm not looking at gaining a lot of muscle. I just realize that ue to no exercise I am a lot weaker than average. I simply want to get my strength up to a more basic level....I want to stand a chance in an arm wrestle rather than have big muscles or have more strength overall.

I'm not going for vanity or even gaining big muscles, I just realize I have almost on strength due to never doing any exercise or hard work. I basically want to stand a chance in an arm wrestle against the average guy, not be super fit or jacked up. I also only have access to a dumbbell set due to budget limitations.

Also, I am limited in what I have access to because of my budget. I bought an adjustable dumbbell set which is all I really have at the moment.

Hi Berin, thanks for your answer. I'm not interested in big muscles as such, I just realized I have very little strength, much less than my peers due to never really exercising. I'm just trying to get a higher level of strength....so is what I am doing now sufficient? I lift my 15lb dumbbell 10 times in 1 set, wait a bit and do it again, then one more time, and repeat for my other arm. After a few months I should seem some progress?
