Re: Do I need bumpers if I have rubber mats?

Re: Diet check please

Cutting carbs dramatically might help with your body comp but you'll probably see a drop in performance as well.

If you've found no significant weight change at ~3200 calories, try dropping it by...

Re: Calories In, Calories Out

I'd only say you're half wrong.

I'm pontificating here so this is open to debate but it seems logical that:

Inadequate protein and no strength training will cause reduction in muscle. That...

Re: Are you eating enough?

Are you weighing your food? I question this because 4oz of meat is really not that much at all, not much more than the size of your hand.

Re: Fats & losing weight

according to (WFS)

coconut oil is only 1.8% omega 6.

I'd say that's pretty darn low.
