Hey andy, I recently bought your newest book. I have loved it so far, I havenโ€™t finished reading it but the amount of knowledge Iโ€™ve got from it now itโ€™s amazing.
i only wanted to ask you something, If I enjoy cardio a lot, sports like CrossFit and Iโ€™d like to lose fat a little bit faster; Do you think it would be recommendable for me to do CrossFit at the same time that I do resistance training at the gym?
Iโ€™m in a Calorie dรฉficit right now, and i am not sure if joining a crossfit class would slow my performance in the gym, (make my sessions less efficient) What would you recommend me?

Well, I bought your new edition of the adjustment diet book, and I have some questions. 
I was fat when I was a kid, since then i am a personal trainer and training 4-5 times a week. 
every time what happen to me is this:
I cut my weight to 71, start a bulk phase, going up to 78 and then try to get down again to 74kg but i still have some extra fat in this weight. That way, I just go up and down with any real change (except frustrating) 
I am looking at your progress with Dave and Cameron and ask myself how it can be that after the bulking phase they look like this and dont need a cutting phase again? What am I missing? 
thank you!

Have you recommendations for people who are injured, so not able to train at maximum exertion? Should you stay at maintenance, or follow the cutting and bulking cycle with sub optimal training.

Hi Andy,

First of all – excellent book.

One question after reading it: generally you recommend two weeks of maintenance between cut/bulk or one-two weeks of diet break when going deep in a cut phase – is this for time efficiency purpose? (supposing you’re not yet satisfied with your phisique).
In other words, do you ever suggest longer maintenance phases? (At any point, during cut, after getting lean enough, after bulking).

Thank you!

Just wanted to say thank you so much. I refer to the Last Shred regularly and can’t wait to print and get into this new version

Andy,

It looks like you keep client protein intake the same regardless of bulk or cut, and increased carbs and fat only during a bulk.

Is this your recommendation?

Andy

Do you not consider body fat percentage as an indicator as well? I know it is very difficult to measure it with any sense of accuracy, but it would show the trend, no? Or are you using visual cues?

Your advise is to stop cutting (or start bulking) only once you hit 12-13% BF (less than 15%).

Thanks again,
Constantin

Hi Andy,

As a skinny fat person, how do I get rid of the excess fat I have in my lower part of my body (legs and butt)?

Hello Andy,

In either a future edition, or on the site, I would like to see results from men over 40 who have struggled before with nutrition and training. Not knowing exactly what to change to make a big progress.

I am 52 and at the moment I think I am still struggling.

What I would like to see is a system that allow to build a meal (or an entire meal plan) out of the programmed macros. This is the thing that I find the most difficult when dieting. I know that you have an article about that on your website, but maybe the book can include an extended version of it.

Hi Andy, I’d be interested in knowing how competitive sports practice affects diet and training when cutting (i.e macros partitioning on days of weight training, on days of sport training, etc.)

Hi Andy,

One thing I have been thinking about, is strategies if you get sick, like a more severe cold or the flu. 

Not seriously ill of course, I mean the usual stuff we get from time to time. 

Should you shift your macro to more carbs? Allow yourself to go up to maintenance? 

I do get severe carb cravings when I’m coming down with a cold.

I’m sure you have encountered this with your clients, maybe some tips here.

Regards, 

Kenneth

I’d be interested in reading more about refeeds. I’ve heard that one day refeeds don’t do much besides the psychological effect / lowering cortisol, which can stimulate the “whoosh” but won’t do much for leptin or other metabolic adaptations.

How do I pick the right refeed schedule (for example – if you choose two day refeeds, should you lower your calories on deficit days, so that the total weekly deficit stays the same, or should you accept a slightly slower rate of fat loss, and just lower other days a bit or not at all)? It would be nice to know if there are any adjustments that you recommend to refeeds themselves.

Hi. I would like to see recommended fat ratios. As in the recommended distribution of mono, poly, and saturated fats.

Hi Andy, page 28 of the pdf, there’s a link that’s misspelled (leading to a 404). The pdf should link to https://rippedbody.com/hoW-to-build-training-programs/ but it’s spelled wrong in the pdf.

Thank you! Jess Vega

What is the reason for transitioning to maintenance after a bulk, but before a cut? Is there a significant reason why not to just go straight to a cut?
