"As you can see there are many opinions on what to do. Do this to gain muscle and lose fat...no no no that will burn more muscle than fat etc etc etc. I have quite a bit of training when it comes to health and fitness nearly completing a masters in…"

"HIIT will do you good.  Extended steady state will kill the muscle.  Keep in mind that ultramarathoners already have minimal muscle mass, so losing any of it would be really hard, and they're not trying to gain…"

"Can you get the NIH to pay for a few sessions with a nutritionist? And ask your GP how he recommends you lose weight. In the States, you can well on the right track with a few sessions with a personal trainer for under $200."

"Good job! As you progress, consider making a weekly 6-8 hour window to use high GI carbs to awaken your metabolic functions.  4-10 PM works best (must end close to bed time).  Jess Levens above mentions that a keto diet is not a long term…"

"Hey C, Since February I've been able to drop about 40 lbs via a combination of diet change and exercise. I generally have 2 hardboiled eggs for breakfast, an Atkins shake for lunch and dinner is meat with salad and lots of veggies. I cut out…"

"I was able to drop 35 lbs quickly by going on a ketogenic diet and doing the Insanity program. Keto diet is not a long term solution, but if you want a head start, it's an option. For me dropping that weight was made working out much easier on…"

"I Agree with the eating, but sometimes that alone is not enough. However, it is a great start. Past that you might want to focus on works outs designed to burn fat vs gain muscle. I'm returning to being an avid cyclist, and I know there are…"

Introduction to Fishing

Hey, guys.I'm 25, got stationed out in Vegas not too long ago and looking for a new hobby. I've been considering fishing, but don't know too much.My dad took me a few times when I was younger, but that's about it. Anyone know good book, podcast series, or pretty much anything that would cover the basics of fishing? Anything from what I would need to know, to equipment, and even keeping and eating the fish? Any input is appreciated. Thank you guy so much for your time and help.AndrewSee More
