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.
For general and fitness-related chat. No being retarded, it's not /b/.

I ate a cup of almonds in the morning.
I ate half a cup of almonds just now (late night).
Half way through, the taste of all my almonds dramatically changed. I got this aweful taste flood my mouth (bitter). It's hard to describe. I washed out my mouth and it remained for around a minute.
Then, I tested another almond and got not taste.
Almonds are bitter.
They weren't bitter till that night
they must have activated
Started cardiac exercises, more specifically running, for the sake of being healthy. Lately I've really noticed what something as simple as diet determines how I'll feel/do on a run so I've cut all fast food, most processed food, and overall re-arranged my eating habits.
>What are some dietary plans you'd recommend/follow that will really make a difference ?
Money isn't very much of an issue, open to anything really.
Ketogenic diets, intermittent fasting (IF) and the so called "perfect health diet" (PHD) are what have worked better for me. The Montignac method is quite remarkable too. All this plans are somehow similar, based in restricted high-glycemic index carbohydrats and gluten, and rich in protein and fats.
I'm currently on a keto now and I feel my mind way clearer, am loosing weight and experimenting no trouble at all. I'm unsure of what your goals and current situation are:
If you need to lose some weight and want to see quick results while obtaining health improvement and alimentary discipline in the process, keto is for you, then you can move to another one because it's a time limited option;
if you're not in a hurry to lose weight but want long term lasting results, and you go to work/school in the morning and don't have time to prepare a decent healthy meal, then pick an IF mixed with the PHD suggestions (next thing I'll do);
if you're a girl aiming to become a cardiobunny, go for Montignac, as it's quite easy to follow, and women tend to be somehow less tolerant with more restricted diets and are prone to achieve alimentary disorders, so don't push it.
This are of course suggestions based simply on my personal experiences and somehow restricted knowledge, and some plans may work wonders on a person and be useless for others, but I have not a single doubt about the safety of this diets and I'm sure they are all worth at least a try. I'll let you some links, and the suggestion to download "The Ketogenic Diet" and "A Guide For Flexibe Dieting" by Lyle McDonald. Ask whatever you need, I know some things I write can be incomprehensible for I ain't a native speaker.
Do you think this is more violent sport than rugby or MMA? http://goodmood-gm.com/interesting/calcio-storico-possibly-violent-sport-world/
Rugby ain't that violent IMO, and yeah, Calcio Storico is pretty rough. The strange rules of the game are more interesting that it's violence though.
Hey guys, well having a bit of a problem here, figure buy maybe someone else out there has the same problem as me. Hair loss, it began at my teens and now im mid twenties. No one in my family is bald or having the same problem. I tried going with a dermatologist and told me something about my hair being thickening. I still have a fair amount of hair, but not as much as i used to. Any help?
Advantages exist in this century as well!
Quit drinking and smoking, quit eating dairy products, quit consuming caffeine.
Hair loss is caused by bad diet, foods that inflame the skin (caffeine, alcohol), and hormones that accelerate the death of hair follicles (BgH hormones in milk).
At your age it may be too late to stop the progression but you can slow it down with a healthy diet and clean living.
I'm 50 and have a full head of hair with no bald spot. I have never drank, smoke, I avoid all dairy products except for the occasional bit of cheese on pizza, and I stopped drinking caffeine because it was wrecking my skin.
Also if you are fat, you can make yourself diabetic and diabetes accelerates hair loss.

Male alopecia is basically your hair follicles' reaction to testosterone. Minoxidil is the only approved method for preventing/sustaining the loss. There are of course oral treatments such as finstride but they'll literally kill your cock.
You may also want to consider hair transplant, but they cost a fucking lot.
Just finished sex, and I ejaculated urine. Never happened for years while masturbating, but I masturbate differently. What could this mean?
It could be the sphincter of your bladder going really wrong, you seriously should consider going to an urologist ASAP.
Can you explain a bit more about your new masturbatory habits? for the sake of science, not need of an /elit/ description.
The routine recommended in the sticky
Deadlift or stiff-leg deadlift 5x5
Bent Over Rows 4x4-8
Weighted Pullups or Lat Pulldowns 3x4-8
Seated Row 4x4-8
Flat Bench Press: 5x5
Message too long. Click here to view the full text.
the 5X5 means 5 working sets, warm up with increasing weights
Benefits and risks of knuckle push-ups vs. palm ones?
Knuckle pushups also increases the range of motion slightly, making for a better workout.
As a personal related anecdote, I can no longer do palm pushups, after a biking accident (I can't hyper-extend my right thumb any more). Knuckle pushups are perfectly fine for me still.
remember once you're done with knuckles you need to move on to fingertip, with decreasing fingers
Then handstands, knuckestands, and fingertipstands.
Eventually, you can get down to a one finger stand.

Hi, I'm lazy and fat and I discovered smartphone applications that helped me discover the wonderful world of fitness.
What could I do at home or outside without paying and/or interacting with people?
I currently do the whole 100 push-ups / sit-ups / squats, and I also run a bit with the C25K program.
Do newbies have also found interesting stuff that would be available for other newbies?
Best regards and stuff...
Download Convict Conditioning, read it and put what it says into practice. Lower your ammount of reps. A lot.
Also, this blog http://www.fitness666.com/p/bodyweight-666.html can be really useful.
Who's that hottie on the picture?
Thank you very much for the answers. I'll try to read the books.
The hottie lives on Google Images and I wanted to show how much of a fitness master I was with a simple picture (even if I'm a previously fat smoking male who lost a lot of weight recently).
