• It's not about the number of "shakes", it's about the total amount of grams eaten in a single day. You need between 0.82 - 1.0 grams per pound of lean body mass in order to build muscle, and generally only if you're eating at a caloric surplus. It's very difficult to build muscle and lost fat at the same time, you usually…
  • I use a Fitbit and it logs menial tasks like that for me based on steps taken, good enough for me.
  • Bacon and eggs. Every day. When I'm bulking I add cheese, avocado and other meats, usually something like summer sausage. But always bacon and eggs minimum.
  • You will not ruin ALL of your hard wok in just one meal. Don't beat yourself up over 1 mistake. Pick yourself up, learn from it and move on :) One of my favorite fitness celebreties, Shaun T, says "Eat clean 85% of the time, and FUN 15% of the time". If you don't know who Shaun T is, then look up the Insanity workouts and…

  • 25 minutes of HiiT cardio 6 times a week.
  • I bought a Fitbit One (Activity Tracker) and a Polar FT7 (Heart Rate Monitor), they were both about ~$100 each. I take off the Fitbit when I do workouts and manually log my calorie burn from the HRM reading and it's been working pretty good for me so far.
  • I buy a container of Whey Protein Isolate and mix with Unsweetened Almond Milk, 135 calories, 26 grams of protein 1g of fat and 0 carbs for 1 cup of this heavenly mixture. Perfect as a post workout energizer.
  • You are on the right track. What strikes me is: "I stopped eating bread, pizza, pasta, cookies, and cake. And drinking soda. " Which is great, those are all very high carb foods that will make you fat when you combine them with high fat foods. Fat on its own is not unhealthy, but insulin blocks fat synthesis and will cause…
