Fat Loss starts in the kitchen, because fat loss is a result of caloric deficit: you need to burn more calories than you eat.

To reliably lose fat, you need to a) track the calories that you consume via food and drink, b) track the ...

I've always found that my forearms/wrists/hands grow significantly when I'm deadlifting frequently. I've also found that my forearms/wrists/hands burn when I do straight-bar bicep curls. Try incorporating more deadlifts and straight-bar bicep curls into your workouts. If you've never deadlifted, it would be worthwhile to have an experienced friend/trainer ...

If your goal is to improve your strength or lose weight, then do not fast anytime near your workout time (before or after) as this is the most important time for nutrients. The saying, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day," is not just a saying - it's a fact. The reason you need to break your fast before your workout is manyfold. First, your ...

According to this forum here, the general opinion seems to be that as long as my pre-workout is under 50 kcals then my insulin levels should NOT spike and there fore would not break my fast. I would think that waiting until 2:00pm to eat will still have benefit since up until 2pm, my body will still be in a fasted state. Could anyone help me confirm this?...

Bottoms-up kettlebell. It will definitely increase grip strength. For example, one exercise I do is that I start in a squat and swing the kettlebell from the floor to the bottoms-up position as I stand. I also do an exercise where I hold the kettlebell bottoms-up and step up and down onto a platform. A more standard type of exercise is just to carry the ...

Some of the companies address this issue directly, like Orgain (my favorite, all-around). They say these contaminants are in natural levels. I read the Consumer Reports article, and it did NOT say specifically if the contaminant levels are any more than the pre-processed ingredients themselves. And if so, then why?
