why are there diets like "low-carb diets" that people seem to love? what's up with the difference in diets, if a calorie is a calorie?
is it just personal taste leading to more long-term success?
I follow a low carb diet plan - not because I'm interested in ketosis, but because as far as I understand, carbohydrates and the complex sugars they are made of don't give your gut the proper amount/type of nutrition necessary to maintain a healthy digestive system.
Captcha: select all bananas.
I believe it is actually very beneficial to certain people who have a sensitivity to insulin.
You also just seem to lose weight faster on the scale because you're body doesn't hold onto extra water from the carbs, so people like that. I personally find it easier to fight my hunger on a diet with few carbs.
high levels of carbs don't agree with my body. I'm also allergic to gluten and cured my severe eczema by stopping eating it
honestly I wish I could eat carbs without problems but I'm better off not
It's funny, I can do a lot of this stuff pretty good and do a good amount of it as my core exercise (like, for my core, not as the core of my resistance work) but I can't for the fucking life of me do a planche. It's actually pretty annoying.
hi guys. i'm tall. when i OHP the same weight as someone short am i stronger because i have to lift the weight higher off the ground.
thanks guys love you
Just bought this shit. Why is it so fucking hard to use it bro? Is the double wheel ver. easier to use?
It's hard to use because you have a weak core and probably weak grip and weak shoulders. Try doing it on your knees with the wheel slightly elevated, or just do easier core work until you can handle it.
I'm new to oatmeal what type does fit recommend and how to make taste good?
Are there any long lasting health issues if I limit myself to a single sandwich and an apple a day until I'm less fat?
What does /fit/ do to train their NECK?
Whatever reason you lift weights for, it is absolutely ESSENTIAL that you train your neck. It's one of the most visible parts of your body when you're wearing clothes and is also one of the most vulnerable parts of your body when playing sports such as football or boxing.
TRAIN YOUR NECK!!!
What's your guilty pleasure?
Your one big weakness to your fitness needs.
I can't stand the taste of regular milk, chocolate milk is so sugary.
It's the taste Anon.
Almond milk taste like utter shit, regular milk is pretty bad, goat milk taste the best, but it's expensive.
It's my post workout drink for nights that I get done lifting, just makes me so happy to sit back and relax and eat my banana and drink my chocolate milk.
Fictional Goal Body Thread
Why do macros matter while cutting? I understand if you want to maintain muscle your protein should be properly accounted for. but for the average person that wants to be /fit/, not a gainer/bodybuilder, does it matter?
cals are cals m8 :v
This post makes me want to quit life holy shit.
Yes, the average person who wants to remain and stay as average, should not to care what they're shoving into their mouth.
If you want to even get "fit" as you stated someone like that would want to, they would take some initiative towards shaping their diet to meet their goals.
Simply eating random shit, stuffing your face, etc. With no care in the world what your ingesting, is simply wasted time and effort to get to that goal.

How the fuck do I do this exercise with proper form? Barbell rows are only exercise where no matter what I do I feel like a retarded stick insect. I'm 6'4 if height matters here.
Bed knees slightly. Don't bend over; stick your glutes out as if you were doing a good morning. Keep a straight back. You should feel no tension on your back and have your legs support your weight. Pull weight using your back muscles, chest, and biceps, not by rolling your shoulders/traps.
Watch the Glen pendlay video on rows. I got a 6'4 friend who got to around 195 pounds with perfect form but decided to do power cleans instead afterward.
So no, height does not matter for this lift.
I'd like it if every restaurant were required by law to make their food's nutritional information available, instead of just the big chains. Would such a thing be feasible, though? Could it happen in my lifetime?
>chefs weighing out every fucking ingredient every fucking time
>calculating shit no one but 5% of customers are even fucking interested in
Turbo-autism at its finest. There is a reason only fast food chains that virtually sell the same fucking item every time write that shit on a list. Just eat out on special occasions or get a personal cook you lazy piece of shit. Did I mention your autism?
Does anyone else here genuinely think that r/fitness is a better resource? Everyone on /fit/ is so autistically obsessed with "muh big 4" and "muh gains". I've become much more healthy and happy following Reddit's advice over /fit/.
TL;DR: r/fitness, r/powerlifting, r/weightlifting are all much better resources than /fit/.
Iron in the gym to break you down, iron in the kitchen to build back up. Cooking in cast iron is the ultimate gains-goblin repellent. Here's what I've done today:
>3 scrambled eggs at 5:00am, then gym.
>Come home for lunch, sear chicken breast with sauteed mushrooms, peppers, and tomatoes.
>T-Bone steak for dinner. I introduce it to the pan for 2 minutes per side and rest it 5 mins, then eat with baked sweet potatoes and veg.
I love it. I will always love it....

What's the lifting equivalent of a runner's high?
