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.

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.

Strength vs stamina training Anonymous 15/05/19(Tue)04:36 No. 18222 [Reply]

File 143200299050.png - (2.24MB , 1052x1420 , useII.png )

So, I've been into calisthenics for some years now, and have achieved a fair amount of muscle mass and can perform some complex exercises like one arm push-ups and hanging leg raises and stuff like that. I've been mostly following a 6x6 program, in an attempt to get strength above all else.
Recently, I started taking martial art lessons, Pa-Kua for more information. In there we do a lot of calls, but mostly focused into stamina. Countless repetitions of push ups and sit ups and body-weight squats, and a little running too. This is almost as difficult for me as for any of my untrained partners, and many times I can't even complete the full set before failing.
So here's my worry: am I going to lose my long achieved strength and hypertrophy if I continue following this new routine? And if so, how can I stop that from happening?
Thanks in advance guys.

You'll probably lose some of the hypertrophy if you stop the strength training, but you'll still be toned; just not "ripped".
You can extend your workout sessions to minimize the loss, but it will take up quite a bit of time and energy.

It has to do with your personal buildup of muscles as well. If you have a propensity for strength (sounds like it), you won't be as successful in stamina/endurance. (for me it's the opposite, I can run for hours, but don't ask me to sprint for my life) It has to do with fast and slow twitch muscle fibres (early tiring and stronger versus long winded and weaker).

See image for an extreme example.

Gym Trainer isn't being fair , what to do ?

i joined this gym near my house , and the trainers there won't give my fair time on the equipment.


its been 6 days since i joined there, and i only used the Tread mill 2ce :/


the trainer barley notices me at all ,i don't even know if i'm doing it right.

Today i just did some stretchings and warmed up a bit , after 20 mins on the cycle , a group(4-5) of other female members arrived.

since all the treadmill was occupied i asked him i'll work on the light weights till the Treadmill is free .But he says , you have done enough for today ,better take go home and have some rest.

This is hilarious. Unless there's something about it in the membership contract they can't kick you off equipment, let alone tell you to go home. That's insane. Complain to the management and/or quit.

Why run on the treadmill in the first place? Go outside and run ya hamster :P

I get it though you paid for it. stand up for yourself man. You are the customer and they are supposed to provide a service. PT's are bullies so tell em you'll see from your lawyer or something if they don't respect what you ask for.
