I was talking about cmathew. He is adding nothing to this forum and just generally bringing the morale/attitude down.

Pirate --> Just be more specific with your thread title next time. No big deaL!

Aye, sir...another question though, on the same topic...you guys think drinking a protein shake before cardio would keep me from burning muscle if I wanted to cut fat a little bit?

Well since you don't care there Mat then don't let the door hit you in the ass. LOL, I shouldn't have resigned the modship, it's a small joy, banning a prick, but it is a joy. What has really pissed me off, however, is not the comment directed toward me but the fact that you added that "lame" smiley after the quote by me. That makes it look like I used that smiley and I would never do that.

Didn't mean for the thread to get sidelined, Pirate, because of my suggestion. But there's always a db around looking to be tough.

Didn't you say that you had intentionally brought up your body fat level, along with some lean mass, from around 7 to 10 to 12 percent? (Which I think is a good idea). And I know you've talked about trouble eating enough. So I wonder if you really need to be overly concerned with cardio to keep fat off.

At this point, you've brought up you fat levels and if you get any fatter then you are simply eating more calories than necessary. Try to regulate the diet..and maintain that bf level you've set. Go by body comp. If you're gaining weight but you are able to keep the bf level pretty much the same or a bit lower...then you're good.

The reason I say that is that it's almost as if you plan on eating more than you need, based on what I know of your history. I'm not saying no cardio.

That could all go out the window and you could find that fat gain is a problem. Right now I'm assuming you're a naturally thin guy who has to struggle to gain weight. But it could be that you're a regular guy who just never at much. So take everything I said with a grain of salt.

On the subject of topic names you don't have to be creative and clever, just specific.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

It is more of a, if I need to cut body fat in the future, I will already have the info I need, kind of thing, and possibly anyone else who stumbles across the thread will too. I like to know everything I possibly can about every subject relevant to what I am interested in.

But yes, I have raised my bf % to within the range I wanted, and now I am trying to kind of trim some fat out of my diet and stay where I am at as far as that, but still gain muscle mass in the process.

Sooo hypothetically, would taking that protein shake before cardio give a better shot at cutting the fat without taking muscle with it? I know its not easy to cut without losing muscle in the process.

It's a good idea to ask questions and plan for the future but the problem is you don't necessarily know the right questions yet. If you ask the wrong questions you will get irrelevant information based on those questions because most people will just give you a standard answer without considering anything about you.

I started to answer your last question in a very simple way but reading it I can see you are combining concepts and I'm not sure what I should say.

You basically just asked about 'cutting'. Cutting is stripping off the last few digtis of stubborn fat (and perhaps dehydrating) to be ready to get in your speedos and step on stage. Fatloss and or weight management is not the same as cutting. Cutting takes very tough regimented measures and to maintain it it's incredible difficult.

To leave the concept of cutting out of it: You won't melt away your muscle like the incredible melting man just because you take a run. Not a bad idea to have a bit of protein before a run.

You're obviously intellectually challenged.
