And as Spl00gies said, congratulations to everyone who’s trying very hard to reach their goals. We know you can do it!

What are some good middle and lower ab workouts? Those are the ones I need to work on the most, seeing as how I can see my top abs
Many exercises that don't involve ab contraction still use the abs quite a bit. The best example I can think of is a strict form pull up. By strict form, I mean everything from the torso down is kept as tight and rigid as possible (unlike those silly Crossfit pullups that make you look like fish out of water).

If you do as many pullups as possible with strict form, your abs will hurt like hell.

About to start a mini-cut during finals season, as I'm travelling after that and want to be feeling 100%. I'm certainly not big anymore, have posted here before about losing 140. Put on about 10 when I got heavy into strength training (was pretty much on a decently controlled bulk) and have occasionally gone back and forth about 5 pounds. Reducing my daily kcal by ~250, sticking to carb backloading, and keeping my IF going strong. It's feeling really good. For the first semester in I don't know how long I'm not as susceptible to stress eating.

One thing I will say after getting so much experience with successful losing is that fruit is probably your best friend. It's incredible how much volume and flavour is present in decent caloric density. I'm almost excited to have my eating habits under such control again. Meal prepping staples, thoughtful planning (using MFP) and walking more before and after training get me on track quickly and keep me there unless I somehow find a way to fuck that up because of a social occasion I failed to plan for. In that case, just don't whine and get back at it with patience. Also fasting is beautiful, whether you do IF daily or do a full day per week (I do both), it seriously helps to challenge the food obsession that comes with eating morning till night.

I lost like 10 lbs during a fit of depression last year (ate little to nothing for nearly two weeks) bit then gained it all back. Currently 153 and I want to lose at least 20-25lbs through healthy means this time around. What’s the best way to go around doing that?

Calories in, calories out. Get your calories beneath your TDEE either through watching what you eat, exercising, or much more-preferably a mixture of both.

Since 31 of march, I have lost 9 lbs. From 166 to 157 lbs. I don't even know if I should be happy or more worried to lose that much weight fast since I fear to stay stuck with the loose skin or if I'm ill or something.

The only that changed is that I eat much more vegetables and gotten less lazy to cook home since I was fed up to cook at work. I actually want to lose weight too so...Or maybe it's the stress because my hubby got the bypass surgery. Anyway, hang in there everyone. You can do this.

I'd like to join in this thread, please?

Trying desperately to get towards 50kg before I'm 50 (I have 9 years to go!)

Last time I weighed myself I was 80kg.

I have had problems with Anorexia nervosa in the past, and am still very scared of going on diets or exercising in excessive amounts, in case something "clicks in" and my old habits return.

I joined Slimming World (I am in the UK), but left after about a year because I had gained more than when I had joined....whenever I hit the gym and followed the plan to the absolute letter I gained weight, but whenever I missed the gym or calorie counted I lost weight. Which doesn't make sense if they are supposed to be experts.

Since leaving Slimming World I have lost 2 stone and feel a bit more in control.

I am a level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer, I also own a small Fitness Studio that specialises in Pole Fitness and Flexibility, but I don't get as much time to train for myself as I am always teaching plus I have another business I run by myself.

I also enjoy having a weekly MMA P.T. session.

It's frustrating that I am obviously sabotaging any weightloss even though I want to lose weight so badly.

I'm starting back onto the calorie counting today.

EDIT
I want to be 50kg because that is the maximum recommended healthy weight for someone of my height....I am only 4ft 8ins. Lots of people say that is too low, but they fail to take into account that most height and weight recommendation charts have their shortest height as 4ft 10 ins.

Guys, I want to combine mostly cardio with some resistance training in a single training session witha 70-30 mix. My goal is to lose weight mainly and tone up. Did a Google smash and all I got was contradictory information on which one to do first in a sesson. What I've been mostly able to gather is do the one you're focusing on more first but other sources say to minmax, do one or the other first.

Without getting into too much macromicro details, help please.

Your solution's sitting right there. CICO is the #1 most-important step when it comes to maintaining, reducing, or adding body fat. You can't summon potential energy (fat) from nowhere; whatever you put into your body is what your body can store as fat, and since the human body needs a base number of calories to keep itself going every single day, if you don't eat beyond that + whatever calories you need to fuel your exercise, you don't gain weight. If you eat beneath that, you lose weight because the body has no choice but to tap into its fuel (fat) to make up for the deficit.

You're a personal trainer, so I don't really have to go into much more detail about it, but I was just having a discussion about this sort of thing with a friend of mine this morning, so half of this is basically for the benefit of passers-by, and because I was going to make this diagram today anyways, since her misconceptions about anorexia and calories were driving me crazy:

I love that, thankyou.
Yeah the reason I asked to join is exactly for information presented like this.

It's so frustrating that I have all the certificates and pieces of paper to show that I know what to do to help others, but I can't seem to do it myself.

CICO is my favourite method, it is basic, simple physics, and it works. But I just can't get past my stupid "I mustn't eat more than 1000 calories" made up rule which I KNOW is no good for me, so I just end up eating as cleanly/naturally as possible and hoping for the best.

Thank you again...I'm going to spend a bit of time with that infographic as my phone screen to burn it into my brain.

Yeah, don't do that. 1,000 Calories isn't even at the minimum requirement for an eight year-old boy. (1200-1800) Unless you're smaller than an eight year-old boy, I wouldn't recommend bringing your calories that low.

So any good advice for someone trying to lose a few pounds? I am 30 lbs off my target weight for my age and height. I've cut out soda and fried foods, and its helped a lot. Kicking beer is harder though because I love it so much :(

Look at naked pictures of @paintingatree and @LegendaryChristorian after you've been drinking, that should kick your appetite for booze (and any cravings you get under the influence). If for some reason the beer goggles make that person more appealing, come back and tell us about it in great detail so that we may mock and laugh at you in a thread with your name on it counsel you through the confusion.
