    I do a lot of cardio work (being big is just one of my fitness goals) so my heavy days are actually hard to meet my caloric equilibrium let alone bulk. So, in short, your rest days are GREAT days for...

    Looks fabulous. I would love to be just that size. Not too big, but well cut. My wife would love it, too ;)

    What's your current height/weight?

    That's the nice thing about your size. When you get down to 12% body fat (or whatever your goal is) you're going to look ripped and huge! On the other hand, after *I* lost 50 pounds I looked like the...

    Yes, but it's not very many extra calories per pound. Maybe 15-20? (just guessing)

    Absolutely. I don't ever wanna be fat again, so I'm committed to monitoring my measurements once a month (in addition to the daily weigh-ins).

    Oh, ok. He simply means that you burn more calories *per minute* with hiit than with, say, walking.

    I, personally (and I'm an admitted newbie), find my workouts go better when I don't burn out...

    To me, personally, the advantage of eating lots of small meals during weight loss is that I don't feel hunger pangs. If I get hungry, I eat a baggie full of carrots, a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, or...

    I think it's entirely possible that the reason your stomach seems loose and stretchy is because you have LESS fat than before. However, losing weight and getting in shape is a marathon not a sprint....

    Only you can determine what your own body's maintenance level is. I'd recommend a calorie-tracker site like FitDay.com.

    Oops. I've been scooped.

    Based on the number of calories you're eating, I'd say you're in cut mode. If you're at all active you're probably running a deficit of more than 500 calories per day--but everyone is different so...

    I used FitDay to track my calories. I tried to eat 35% protein, 40% carbohydrates, and 25% fat (and that's still my goal now that I'm bulking). I started out trying to run a caloric deficit of 1500...

    Yeah, I'm pretty hopeful there's a six-pack in my future as well. After my current bulk I'm going to cut slowly until I can see it. I'm not sure how much weight to put on with this bulk phase,...

    I think it depends on your overall fitness goals. If being big is your primary goal then extended cardio works against that. However, unless you have already spent lots of time in the weight room...

    Didn't think so, but I'm new to the forum and didn't want to offend.

    BTW, the *best* feedback is from my wife, of course ;)
