This is the /fit/ FAQ. You should read it.

It contains a fuckton of incredibly useful information for anyone seeking to improve their physical fitness.

If you post a question which has already been answered in this FAQ, don't be surprised if you find your post mocked, saged, or missing.

It's here for a reason.

Credit belongs to ZigCat for the original FAQ, with small amendments by /fit/ as a whole. RIP ZC.

As german science proves shape and form and conscious existence and a world is all a lie.

Perhaps it's time to start lieing your way fit.

• Fake history
• Made up terms systems and effort history training
• Fake photo's of you training with your head put on fit bodies
• Spreading the lie
• Fake nutrition profile and bloodwork diagrams
• Fake training environments and history

Greetings, /fit/
Tomorrow is the first day of June, and the beginning of the summer months (yes, I know, summer starts at the 21st, never mind that for now)
I want to get rid of some extra weight I've been keeping on me in the next three months, until the end of August.

My vital statistics are:
Age - 22 yrs
Height - 185 cm (~6')
Weight - 91 kg (200 lbs)
BMI - 26.6 (Overweight)
Basal metabolic rate - ~2000 kcal/day

I've had a checkup last month, it seems my blood values are great. No hypertension, heart problems, or cholesterol. My fitness level was "normal". So basically, this is mostly about preventive measures, and of course, cosmetic reasons. The exercise also helps keep my mood up, and perform better mentally, and regulates my sleep.

I'll be cutting down on calories and engaging in exercise 3-5 days a week. I enjoy running quite a bit, and I have a treadmill and an exercise bike available for use.
Sadly I also have previous sporting injuries which flare up if I force my knees too much.

Okay, so I've started off with mediocre success.
I've decided to go easy on my knees and limit the running to 30 minutes for this week.
Today I was ill, so I didn't exercise. I didn't have much of an appetite either. I spent most of the day sleeping.
I'm more or less ahead schedule, though that's probably not very healthy.

right now i weigh around 125 pounds and i'm trying to gain weight. i make my own lunch and dinner from stuff i buy in bulk from costco, each meal usually being around a half cup (precooked) white/brown rice mixture in 3:1 ratio, a little over 1/4 pounds chicken breast (precooked), and around one cup mixed vegetables. i don't have time for breakfast so i just eat some sort of protein/granola bar. i eat out a few times a week. other than some fruit after dinner, i don't eat any snacks.

by my calculation, my daily caloric intake is around 1600, with around 60-65g protein. i think that's enough protein for muscle gain at my current weight, but i feel like i'm not getting enough calories, although i'm not really sure how much i should be getting. the number i keep seeing is 2000 but i realize that depends on activity level. at work i mostly sit around, with some standing and walking and very occasional heavy lifting. i do 15-20 minutes of medium-high intensity calisthenics every day.

thoughts? suggestions? my plan right now is to get a bulk bag of walnuts to snack on and try to push the calories up closer to 2000

As far as I know, the most reliable way to ascertain your daily energy expenditure is to follow a strict diet for a period of time, simultaneously weighing yourself regularly.

Gender, weight, age, and activity level all obviously play a role, but individual considerations are king. If you wanna gain weight, why not just increase your portions?

i don't have the appetite to eat larger portions, unless i sit there for like an hour forcing it down.

Lift weights, and your appetite will increase. (And once your appetite increases, you can lift even more weights, which will increase your appetite even more!)

Also, you don't need to start eating a ton of food all at once. If you gradually change your diet, it will give your body time to adapt.

There's not a cooking board on here but this falls under the category of "health."
So here is my situation. I'm currently battling depression and living with ADD. I'm getting therapy and medication to help me through it. That's not the point as to why I'm here though. I'm aware that an unhealthy diet can be a substantial contributor to depression and a healthy diet can ease ADD symptoms. My goal is to only eat food that I make myself. I'm 24 years old and live by myself with very limited kitchen space. I'm working with my budget and slowly building up my cooking utilities. I am no stranger to Google and I'm going to continue searching for myself, but it doesn't hurt to ask for help.

I'm looking for a resource or guide that can help a 24 year old man eat and cook healthy. Starting out simple enough, I'm sticking to whole grains only, I always keep a dozen eggs in my refrigerator, I buy unsalted butter and don't use margarine or any other synthetic butter substitute, I'm sticking with lean red meat at the moment as I get comfortable with cooking more foods, and only 100% juice, whole milk (should probably switch to 2%), and water (occasionally Snapple) fill my fridge for drinks, and I seldom buy junk like Doritos as I prefer to snack on things like fruits and raw veggies. I feel like this is a decent start, but I do want a guide that can actually help me stay on track and also give me ideas on switching things up.

TL:DR I'm a young man trying to eat healthy and cook for myself. got any advice?

Here's Mavis because I love this movie.

Hello, I have a similar situation (prone to depressive episodes, young, eating healthy). Luckily I'm pretty handy in the kitchen.
Eating junk food feels nice at the time, but afterwards I feel terrible (either some kind of guilt, or my body reacts negatively to huge amounts of sugar or fat).

I support switching to less-fat milks, definitely. I actually went non-fat, and now any milk with a little fat tastes weird. Your mileage may vary.

I don't use butter very often (unless I'm attempting baking something). I use olive or sunflower oil for cooking. People say you shouldn't use olive oil for cooking, as it has a low smoke point (a lower temperature at which it gives food the "burnt" taste). There are two kinds as you know - extra-virgin and refined. With extra-virgin, it's best to use it raw, with vegetables.
You can use refined for cooking (refined has a higher smoke point, closer to sunflower oil).
If you like, you can add some spices, garlic, dried peppers, and the like to a small bottle of extra-virgin olive oil and wait for a few days, it'll make a good dip for bread, and a good garnish for salad.

I don't know whether or not you get fresh fruit and vegetables at a reasonable price in your country to make them your main food source, but these are the staples of my diet.

Eggs are very nutritious, but can be high in cholesterol. Be sure not to exceed two eggs a day. And also try to boil them instead of frying.

My mistake was that I didn't like eating meat so much, after a few months, I got B12 deficiency.
