Eat less ; exercise: The key to losing weight is not a temporary diet but permanent changes. Sugars ; simple carbs from grains esp. Cause weight gain. It's also wise to avoid fried foods. I like dr. Furhman's diet: http://bit. Ly/1dhw9ht

I'm 20 yrs old, 55kg. I've just started bodybuilding, so I want to gain some weight (mass).Please give me a programme (diet) to follow daily.

You weight & muscle:: Don't go hypocaloric. You need weight. But increase your intake of meat, eggs, nuts. Add supplemental whey protein, or shakes to get your protein 0.9 grams/ lb on a daily basis- counting all protein sources. Get your percent body fat calculated before you start. Keep at that level or below while traing. Your goal: add more weight as muscle! To do so requires both more protein and calories! ...Read more

A trainer gave me a diet plan for bodybuilding, but in the morning I eat two whole eggs and six egg whites (and oats). Is it safe for my health?

Should be OK: Unless you have cholesterol or other metabolic disorders, your trainer is protein-loading you (in a low cholesterol way). Should not be a problem, but whey or other protein powder in morning drink (/smoothie/shake) might be easier. ...Read more

Competed in a bodybuilding (sports model) comp, have been on an extreme diet and exercise routine. Haven't had my period in 6 weeks-had unprotected sex?

Unprotected sex: Well you brought up a serious possibility, unprotected sex isn't smart if you want to avoid pregnancy, HIV and other transmittable diseases. A pregnancy test should suggest an answer to pregnancy. If that isn't present, then the other factors you mentioned are also possible causes for late period. ...Read more

Can you suggest tips on female weight loss and bodybuilding?

Can you suggest tips on female weight loss and bodybuilding?

Cardio Mix: The best way to lose weight is cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. Exercises such as crunches, planks, sit-ups, etc are good for toning the abdominal muscles, but cardio is best for weight loss. ...Read more

What is a reasonable amount of weight gain per week after starting resistance/core/weight training program if diet remains same. Losing wt b4 now gain?

What is a reasonable amount of weight gain per week after starting resistance/core/weight training program if diet remains same. Losing wt b4 now gain?

Many variables: Not knowing your current weight, dietary macronutrient ratio, caloric intake, genetics or hormone ratios (very important in a 56 year old). It is common for resistance training to halt weight loss and in many cases to increase weight gain given the effects of resistance training on Insulin sensitivity and muscle development. See a nutritionist, sports physiologist or a sports medicine physician. ...Read more

Weight training (mornings), a negative energy balance (diet), now adding cardio at 65% of my max hr for 45 min (evenings) for a desired body fat of 5%?

Weight training (mornings), a negative energy balance (diet), now adding cardio at 65% of my max hr for 45 min (evenings) for a desired body fat of 5%?

You will...: Burn muscle as well as lose body fat. Personally, not a desirable approach. The elist football players I see at ut have body fat measurements in the 7% range (not linemen, obviously). 5% is somewhat extreme. Also, your cardio at 65% maximal heart rate is too low to improve cardio fitness. Therefore I assume that your sole goal is extreme leanness to the point of......? ...Read more

What is a reasonable amount of weight gain per week after starting weight training program if diet remains same? Muscle weighs more than fat....

Weighs the same: A pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle. Fat is less dense, takes up more space. As you get leaner, clothes tend to get looser, even at the same weight. Add muscle mass to that and clothes may get snug, e.g. Broader shoulders, bigger biceps. Want weight gain? Will need to increase calories in, and/or decrease calories out. ...Read more

Gaining weight: Typically the problem of gaining weight has a lot to do with hormones. At your age, your body metabolism must be high. Focus on protein supplements (40 gm/meal) 3-4 times a day (calories compacted in a drink). Practice yoga your slow down your metabolism. Focus on cardio fitness and weight lifting not interval training as it would result in more weight loss. Check your thyroid. Better with age. ...Read more

If I run and soccer train but don't lift or do weight training, what can I add to my diet to gain muscle this summer? (Protein powder?)

Nothing: Muscle is built by working out. Muscle grows by stressing it. If you don't workout, no dietary SUPPLEMENT will "grow" muscle. Supplements are called "Supplements" for a reason. The best plan. Hi protein diet with a 3-4 day/week workout plan involving weights. You have to give your body time to repair itself in between workouts (48 hours or so). ...Read more

Creatinine 1.2: You should have no worries with your serum creatinine of 1.2 at your age. Due to your exercise routine, you should have a large amount of muscle mass, so any concerns you may have about your creatinine level are unfounded. ...Read more
