A sprinkling of cinnamon could be all that’s standing in the way of you and those washboard abs. The sweet spice helps to regulate soaring blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin production. There is some evidence to suggest that cinnamon extract also makes fat cells more responsive to insulin, which means they’re much less likely to hold on to excess energy, and far more likely to burn existing fat stores instead.

Ah, quinoa. This healthy, rich-tasting whole grain/seed has so many nutritional riches that it puts refined grains like white rice to shame. Tofu is the perfect sidekick because it’s both waistline-friendly (per bite, tofu tends to have about one-third the calories of meat and poultry) and heart-friendly (tofu has no artery-damaging saturated fat or cholesterol).
But a troubling flaw has popped up in this system. (You knew there was a “but” coming, right?) In a recent study, people on an alternate-day fasting plan for six months lost about 6 percent of their body weight—the same as those on a conventional low-cal diet—but 38 percent of fasters dropped out, nearly 10 percent more than in the other diet group.

Hey there, so I am right at the 25% body fat mark, 210 lbs, 5’10”. This calculator set me at 155 LBM, 2559 TDEE and a 25% deficit at 1919 calories. I have come to a problem with calculating the macronutrients, namely protein. If I use the 25%+ (1g per LBM) that means I should have 155g of protein. Say im running 24.9% body fat and decide to use the 1.2g per pound of body weight. That would mean I need 252g of protein. That is nearly 100g of protein difference per day. My assumption is that the 25%+ body fat requirement should be based on body weight and not LBM to bring it more in line?

Hi Mike, I am 25 years old, weigh 90 kg x 173cm in height with 30% body fat and I’m trying to shed the fat and build some decent muscle. Should I first focus on losing fat before thinking about growing the muscles or can I do both. When you say cardio is not good for muscles does that mean I should avoid walking instead of taking the bus? To break my sedentary life I started to walk (including brisk walking) everywhere and that alone amounts to at least 5 hours in a week. Does that matter? I’ve been thinking about doing the farmers walk exercise, is that a good idea to boost fat loss and muscle growth? I’ve also started going to the gym since last week. Hope you can enlighten me. Thanks in advance!
