Resistance training, also known as weight lifting or strength training, is important for improving and maintaining muscle mass. It also helps to spike our metabolisms, which means your body burns fat even after you’ve left the gym.
The supps won’t help with fat loss unless you’re in a deficit. They are meant to accelerate fat loss which requires a deficit to begin with. You can take caffeine pre-workout to improve performance, but no need to take the rest.

flat stomach/abs. But I don’t want sacrifice on my muscle gains really. My question here is I am confused about what should be my calorie intake. I want to make big gains. So I need calorie surplus.

I have been running and weight lifting on and off for about a year and a half. I have been going up and down weight wise. For the last three months I have forced myself to stay on a regular workout plan and I have started to see an increase in my muscle mass, which I want to keep. I have slowly increased my workout from 3 days a week to 4-5 days a week depending on work. I have a high stress job with long hours. My goal is lose weight, build muscle, and eat healthier. I haven’t incorporated supplements and I want to know what supplements are a must (pre and/or post workout). I would also like to get some simple accessible information on how to go about eating more healthy especially for busy people. Great article! You present the information in such a great way. You are one of the best authors regarding the subject. Thanks!
After reading around and trying to educate myself I have been trying to eat low carb in general, eating greens and “white” meat, greek yogurt and a very low calorie protein shake. I am supplementing hemp seeds in my shakes for the omegas and have been eating an avocado as a snack, but I don’t have any problems restricting my diet from an eating standpoint — I got used to going all day without eating while exerting myself on an empty stomach so I have to actually watch going at too much of a caloric deficit. What ratio or protein to carb do you find that works best for you to maintain your mass. I am 6’0 and 210. Like I said, I lift 4 or 5 times a week with relatively high intensity(supersets) and I am starting to work in HIIT about 3-4 times a week. I steer clear of working out lower body, because my lower half is built like an ox, and I bulk very quickly if I am not careful, but once I get my nutrition down I should be good to go back to the major compound lifts without gaining mass, correct? I really want to get my ratios right for the long term, and I have read many of your articles about nutrition just don’t have all the pieces yet.
We get that the last thing you want to do when you’re feeling puffy is chug water, but experts say it’s critical to regulating your metabolic rate (and consequently, your body’s fat-burning mechanisms). Drinking your recommended eight glasses of H2O daily will help your body run more efficiently, making your workouts and healthy eating efforts way more effective. Plus, the more water you drink, the more excess you’ll flush out, so you wind up actually de-bloating as a result. Win-win.
I recently turned 30 and had my first Cholesterol check and the results were bad. I don’t want to take medicine for it so I decided to start working out more regularly. I really want to lose my belly fat. My question for you is. If I do HIIT in the morning on the bike, do I need to take the bcaa’s? And how long after working out do I need to wait before eating?

If you’re diet consists largely of bread, pasta, cereal, rice and other grain based foods, it is going to be challenging to lose weight. Don’t believe the old government endorsed food pyramid that promoted grains as the base of your diet. Most of your carbohydrates should be coming from vegetables for optimum weight loss. If you decide to keep the grain based carbohydrates in your diet, be sure to keep your portion sizes small.
Although I’m tiny (5’1 and 103lbs) I don’t have a flat belly :/. And unlike other ppl trying to lose weight, I’m trying to gain weight/muscle. However, I have no clue as to what I should be eating or how often I should be going to the gym/what I should be doing to achieve a flat tummy yet look bigger/curvy everywhere else?
