    100 grams is very low protein for your body size. Bare minimum I'd want that to be 150. How many grams of fat are you getting? At that low a level of calories you might be too low on fat as well which can start to fuck with hormones.

    This is also how I've cut weight for years and worked very well. My problem these days is the stressors of being an adult and I've gotten in a really bad habit of unwinding by having a few drinks at night.

    Yeah it's pretty much impossible to lose or maintain weight while drinking. There's just so many calories in alcohol

    I go mostly bourbon so as little calories as your going to get but yea, it's adding a good 2000+ calories a week. I do crossfit 3-4 times a week so I burn a lot of calories, really just need to cut the week night drinking out and I'll drop some weight. Currently trying to drop about 10 lbs.

    My gym hiatus from covid and then a newborn has left me 20 lbs lighter that I can't afford to lose. Starting back tomorrow.

    Talk to me about bulking strategies that are low in sugar. I was in the pre-beetus range back when I was fat. Was thinking smaller but more frequent meals and a bedtime bagel with peanut butter, buy there's probably a better way

    Track your calories and your weight. Shoot to gain 1-2lbs a week. When that stalls add more food. If you’re worried about putting on too much bad weight keep the rate of gain closer to 0.5-1lb/week. Keep steps/normal activity high. Shoot for calorically dense food to help with digestion:
    Steak/lean red meat
    Fish
    Chicken
    Eggs
    Rice
    Oatmeal
    Fruit
    Peanut butter
    Butter
    Olive oil

    That’s your base + veggies. Mix and match as needed.

    Capstone 88 Quick question— I just started exercising and lifting weights about 3 weeks ago. I’m more interested in losing weight than getting ripped or anything like that. Anyway, my gym has a steam room and I’m wondering if it’s better to use it before or after working out?

    Capstone 88 No problem. Going to stick with lifting weights on TU and TH and just cardio on MWF and see what happens. I’m working out with a friend from work who is a lot more experienced than me and this is what he’s recommended we do. How does this look if I’m just wanting to lose weight and get in better shape? Warmups are just a mile on the treadmill at about 3.5 mph D30A65C9-FC79-4B55-986F-9AE8591A5BC5.jpeg

    My two cents: switch the cardio and lifting days. Lift more and do less cardio. Lifting weights builds muscle mass which burns fat/calories at a greater rate.

    as far as this program, I think that’s a pretty good approach to getting started. Only thing I’d want to add is some type of hip hinge movement: trap bar/straight bar deadlifts, Romanian deadlifts, stiff leg deads. Can do the last 2 with dumbbells or straight bar.

    The proliferation of cauliflower based food substitutes is probably the biggest blight on this once great nation

    I'm fine with dying sooner and not subjecting myself to it. Cauliflower life is not something I want to live.

    Roasted cauliflower is a great side, and i don't mind cauliflower mash. But everything else like cauliflower pizza crust is just a way of taking a good food and making it taste like shit.
