Hi Andy, do you have a list of people out there who are like-minded giving advice like yours? There’s a lot of sources and yours is a no BS one – it’d be great to know off the bat who you’d recommend (obviously guys like Alan Aragon who you’ve worked with) and who to steer clear from (T-nation solid? Layne Norton?)

Andy,
My great-grandad was in The Battle of The Somme for the whole thing. Unfortunately, what he went through there sent him to the bottle and he died from alcohol abuse just 5 years after he returned to England. Not sure what clearing up 1 million dead and injured would do to me, definitely gives me nothing to complain about with the situation I’m in now.

Cheers,
Matt.

Hey Andy! Can you explain to me what might be the causes for my constant physical hunger lately? I been getting little sleep these past few days and eating at different times due to my schedule right now. I also been eating out the last 2 days for dinner. Can these be the causes for my late night and morning hunger? I am usually not hungry during late nights or mornings

Probably sleep. Stress and boredom can both lead to thoughts of food and spike hunger also.

Sorry for your loss 🙁
We are very lucky to have been born in this time and in these wealthy parts of the world.
My great-grandfather and his wife were stuck in Madrid during our Spanish Civil War. He spent all 3 years that the siege endured wandering along the streets for not to be killed as he was accused to support the other part (only because he was catholic and not republican). His wife had to struggle to feed their 3 little children (the oldest of them was my grandmother, she used to tell me that everybody had a very elegant physique those days, that nobody is genetically fat). They would eat whatever they could, bred rabbits at home and dream for a bone to make a broth.
Short before the end of the siege he was caught and went to jail, died there very soon of tuberculosis. So my great-grandmother was widowed when she was only 30 years old.

What are the rules to break fat/weight loss stalls? I’ve tried a few things. I’m losing motivation.

1. Adjustment of macros.
2. General reduction of calorie intake.
3. Diet Break.
Those have got to be the top three.
Cardio is in a distant fourth.

5. Lose retained water.
That seemed to help. And a 3wk (2+1wk) /total/ break.

But I’m stressed on cut days and before workouts. I’m guessing either too low calorie or carb.

How do you adjust macros?

There is no simple answer to that Chris.

Grandfather got his first job as a delivery boy aged 12. Rode his bike around doing deliveries 10 hours a day until he was 20 when he joined the Army and ended up serving as a paratrooper ultimately surviving the whole war.

I can’t compete with that but I am damn well going to try.
