Agreed.

Increasing your frequency basically keeps your body from falling back into 'famine' mode where it thinks its gotta store energy for later... the more food/nutrients are readily available when u exercise, the less chance your body will ever want to store it up for later.

Caloric Output > Input ...still applies, but the input is just distributed throughout the day... and provided mostly when the body needs the energy for repairs ie. within 3 hours of an intense workout.

yup,... also, when maintaining a low caloric diet it is good to shock the body once in a while so it doesn't get used to low energy foods. This means it is good to have a cheat day... maybe once every 3-4 weeks where you just eat what you want.... but to a degree..

cheat days should be incorporated after you have lost a considerable amount of weight...you dont want to have cheat days when you are just starting out a diet program

A cheat day once a week is ok in my opinion. It helps in more ways than you'd think. When youre constantly telling yourself "i cant eat this or that" youre gonna want it more, so leaving it for 3 - 4 weeks is gonna be difficult for people starting out. They'll likely end up cheating on a regular basis. If they only have to wait 6 days for that cheat day, theyre more likely to push through the cravings and wait.

As long as your regular diet is nutritionally sound, and your workout regime is well balanced, a cheat day once a week wont make much difference at all, if any.

Many people have an issue with weight and blame their genetics but did you know that it's not your genetics that's the the problemf? It's your understanding of your genetics that's the issue. You need to eat according to your genetics. Here's what I mean... my brother and I are incredibly fit...we both are martial artists and weight lifters...we walk around naturally without dieting between 185 and 190 pounds...at 6 to 8 % body fat. But....we both eat completely different.

He can eat potatoes, pasta, bread... no problem with weight...if I eat that I get bloated and my bodyfat percentage increases...

I can eat sweets, cakes, anything with sugar...no problem...if he does then his bodyfat percentage increases.

Even though we are brothers our genetics are different. Through research I realized that my bloodtype is O...and there are simply things I should not eat based on this.

You should research metabolic typing and eating for your bloodtype. You can google it and you will find a ton of information explaining the concept.

Good luck

I have no real knowledge of the science behind metabolism.

I know for a fact that when I was in high-school I could never gain any kind of weight....yet I took in nearly 5 thousand calories/day.

Back 6-years ago I was involved in cross-country, in under 3-hours my body would absorb 4 school meals plus 2 cartons of milk.

At this time, I was 5 foot 9 and 140-45 with less than 7 percent fat.

No matter what I did would gain weight.

Now for my regimen change, I started in January of this year.

I cut out any form of junk-food for an entire month, while enduring a extreme series of self-made workouts.

If anything I have gained a slight-knowledge into metabolism by now. During the 1st 45-days I started cutting fat fairly rapidly along with toning. I do not know how I accomplished the feat of toning and cutting fat while maintaining an overall weight range of 173-75 during that 1st period.

After this 45-day period, I started to drop fairly rapidly.

It may seem like a fair amount of time now, but from jan to now I've dropped to 158-pounds 17-pounds.

I now am 5 foot 11....158 with around 10% fat.

For me the metabolism is key.
