comment Does a high proteine intake support the reduction of body fat?
Added edits and fixed the protein recommendation (kg and lbs are very different). 1g / lb total body weight is a "good enough" metric that's easier to remember than 0.8 g / lb if you need to simplify things.

@maddo7, It's impossible to loose fat without loosing some lean mass. That's just biology. However, you can signal your body to hold on to as much muscle mass as possible by: eating sufficient protein and carbs, doing something that requires strength.

@Kerppag, it's a tool just like much of everything else. Many people thrive on intermittent fasting, many people are unaffected, and many people suffer with intermittent fasting. Start with the basics and get those working before you experiment with protocols like intermittent fasting.

Good sleep is about the most anabolic thing you can do.

I would also suggest that some more carbs can help you in the gym.

It does for some people. I can't find the link to the study because it was in my Facebook feed, but most people loose in proportion to the deficit. Some people (in this short term trial) do pretty much slow down all metabolic processes. That amount of a calorie deficit suggests 2 lbs a week which is on the aggressive side. If you are 30% or more body fat, that will be OK. In the 20% range you want a more moderate 1 lb a week. Take routine measurements and weigh yourself regularly to monitor how things are working.

comment New to fitness. Joined Gym. Trainer is always busy. What do I do?
Are you paying for training? If not, you are getting what you paid for--access to a gym. If so, then there is no excuse for the trainer not working with their client.

comment forearm during weighted pull-ups and chin-ups
NOTE: I recommend only doing specific grip training once every other week. In the OP's case I would emphasize time (endurance) over added weight.

They can. If you have a figure-8 style strap like "Why Our Way" straps then it supports your grip even with a smooth pull-up bar.
