comment What if you only ate vegetables and fruits?
They become a vegetarian. If they refuse to even use products made from animals they become a vegan. Vegetables do have protein, just have to be more creative about your proportions.

comment How to get taller?
Pick better parents. Genetics dictates how tall you are going to be, outside of surgery to lengthen your limbs there's nothing you can do about it.

comment Friend is benching 405 through a “secret workout?”
Either your friend was scamming you 4-5 months ago, or I would have to agree with @EricKaufman. Particularly when you describe how his physique changed (steroids affect the shoulder girdle and upper body more than the rest of the body). Although I would argue he is a high responder to the steroids. I know a couple people who bench over 400, and some of them you would question whether they lift just by looking at them.

comment Why milk is not vegan?
@ShubhamNigam Just call yourself a vegetarian. Being a vegan has a lot more to do with philosophy than food choice.

comment Cannot lose weight
What about the calorie count for the food you are eating?

comment Cannot lose weight
Use a BMR estimator with your height, weight, gender to get an idea of how many calories you need to eat to maintain weight. After that, tally up the calories you are eating. I have some ideas as to what might be wrong, but unless you provide that basic information I can't be remotely sure.

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.

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

comment Does a high proteine intake support the reduction of body fat?
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.

comment Do I need to switch up my squat stance?
@Ryan, you'll see one example here: t-nation.com/training/deadlifting-deadlifting-for-strongman You can also see it in World's Strongest Man. All deadlifts in strongman are conventional, and that's because the rules explicitly state that. National level and world level competitions that allow suits will have guys being very uncomfortable but getting those few extra pounds from them. (video in the middle of the article).

Don't forget squats have more to them than just legs. There's also back strength involved as well.
