Agreed, but it will help them pop more if you have the right bf %

Yup just like losing fat. A lot of it is how much you're eating.

Abs may be made in the kitchen, but they don't really count if you're just skinny.

Sweet thanks bro. I'll add that to my routine.

This is week four of my program, but this is the first full week (6 days), that I completed.

Feeling proud

School starts on monday, and I'm planning to work out around that schedule

All of you guys lifting just for the looks and girls are going turn up fat when you get older... especially those who uses the 'New years resolution' as an excuse to start going to the gym. Every ****ing day should be a 'New years resolution'. Sorry guys, but being healthy and staying active is a LONG term lifestyle... you should be planning to go to gym at least 4-5 times a week till the day you die.

Moderation is the best practice for sure! Keep your meals light and smaller. Love the 90/10 rule, it is the best way to live for me.

It's not about how much you're eating but more about what you're eating. Eat small quantities of crap food and you'll lose muscle instead of fat.

Actually it is also about the portion sizes. If you eat tons of healthy stuff you can still put on weight very easily.

If you're training hard the only thing healthy stuff is going to put on is muscle. It's also damn hard to eat enough healthy stuff to get fat.

Really? You are seriously misinformed if that is what you think. Anyone with half a brain knows that eating anything in excess is not smart, no matter how hard you work out. Red meat for example is fine, but eating a 20oz steak every night is not a smart thing to do. Eating a whole chicken for supper or a dozen eggs for breakfast is not a smart thing to do. The same can be said with fruit, less with veggies since there is much less sugar is most veggies. Eating a ton of fruit can also add weight. A small amount of pasta with a healthy tomato based sauces can be a healthy meal, but eating a huge plate of it is again not a smart thing.

It's also how you prepare your food. Something healthy can be turned much less so by frying it or even worst, deep frying it. Eating raw when possible is a much smarter thing to do also.

Yep.

There's very few things that don't require portion control, the only things I tell my clients they can eat as much as they want of is generally green veggies like broccoli, asparagus and things of the like.

Other than that, you need to understand portions when it comes to your macros.

Why would you think that pasta is a healthy meal? That's a good way to get fat. Grains aren't healthy even though ignorant people think that anything low fat is healthy.

And what is wrong with eating a 20oz steak, a whole chicken or a dozen eggs? Those sort of meals are a good way to improve your body composition.

The unhealthy part of deep frying something is that deep fried things are usually battered or fried in unhealthy fats.

It's not avoiding the question. You're not going to believe what I tell you anyway since you don't lift. But you're welcome to prove me wrong through trying it for yourself.

I eat things that adhere to the primal/paleo/ancestral health lifestyle.

When I am full I stop eating. <-----This is important.

I eat again when I am hungry. <-----This is also important.

Sometimes hunger comes back in as little as 4-6 hours later, or it could be as much as 12-16 hours. It depends on what I ate during my last meal and the time of day.

And once every other week or so I fast for 12-16 hours. I'll eat, go to sleep four hours later, sleep for eight, and eat four hours after I wake up. If I am hungry when I wake up then that is when I eat.

Profit.

Who the **** wants to eat just a steak?

I bet my shrimp pasta gets me more protein than your steak, has less fat. Oh Noes! It has like 40 g carbs, its the end of the world!!!
