comment Weight training without putting on fat
Wendler recommends hill sprints three times a week and I couldn't agree more. They melt the fat off, yet still build muscle and power.

comment Eating 7-8 meals for build muscle but loose fat. How?
I think this is an excellent answer and I couldn't agree more. I think the results are pretty much in on nutrient timing. I suppose one caveat would be people like Michael Phelps, Jay Cutler, or Rich Froning who eat 10k+ calories a day and physically can't fit that quantity of food into their body unless they spread it out throughout the day. But those people are freaks. :)

comment Fitness plan for an achieving high school freshman
Great answer! Any suggestions for the OP about what kind of routine he could start on if he's already able to perform all of those exercises?

comment Is this breakfast reasonably healthy (new to all this)
You should tell us about your goals -- "healthy" is subjective. Do you wish to lose weight, build muscle, have energy for half marathon training? Generally speaking, you should eat for your protein needs (~1g per lb of lean body mass), then fill in the rest of your caloric needs with carbohydrates and some fats. If you want to lose weight, you need to know how many calories you burn per day, and eat 100-500 calories below that. It takes work and willpower. You can try unprocessed food diets (ie, paleo diet), which intrinsically limit calorie intake if counting is not an option.

@SirSC I read the article and your answer (by the way, the article doesn't mention anything about muscle gain). I'm saying the article is poor and deceptive, and the information doesn't come from a creditable source.

@LarissaGodzilla Milk would curdle in that smoothie from the acid in the berries.

That's pretty much all sugar... and you might as well just substitute mountain dew for orange juice. Also check to see if your yogurt is sweetened (takes deliberate effort to find stuff that isn't). The smoothie I make every morning is: 1 cup rolled oats, 2 scoops optimum nutrition vanilla protein powder, 2 tbsp sugar free berry flavored fiber, 1 cup unsweetened mixed frozen berries, 1 tbsp coconut oil, and water to desired consistency. It's filling, high in protein, and delicious.

comment I still have stomach fat despite losing so much weight I can see my ribs. How can I get rid of it?
@DaveLiepmann I was about to reply to this saying he's skinny fat and should put on some lean body mass... Then I realized he lost 80 lbs. I think it's pretty common for people who lose that much weight to have a lot of excess skin around the belly. Not sure if putting on muscle will take care of it.

comment Is there any scientific info about effects of air pollution during exercise?
Just an anecdote, but I can say that I spent 3 weeks in a strictly industrial city just outside of Shanghai and the air quality was horrible. Though elevation was the same as my hometown, I noticed an immediate loss of endurance akin to what I imagine it would be like to train with an elevation mask (exercises performed were high-volume snatches and clean and jerks). I also felt weak and stifled almost as though I were choking. After training, I also experienced some of the worst soreness I'd felt, even though I rarely got sore training at home.

comment good recovery workout to burn a lot of calories during strength training?
I do 15-20 minute hill sprints three times a week and it keeps me lean. If the weather doesn't permit them, I do clean and jerks (maybe 4ish with ~165lbs on the minute for 15-20 minutes, or a few back to back "death by clean and jerk" workouts). I recommend either. The clean and jerk workouts are a blast.
