What are macros / macronutrients?
Read the first few posts to get an understanding of what they are, why you need them, and how many you need of each on a daily basis

I'm too lazy, and I suck at math, isn't there an easier way?
OF COURSE THERE IS!

I use the excel sheet available for download , and plug in my numbers. It's worked for me.

How do I keep track of my daily intake?
There's quite a few apps out there. I'm on the Android platform phone wise, and lately i've been using MyFitnessPal to track my intake and workouts. I recommend it, MUCH better than NOOM which I was previously using.

Here are a few good articles for various body parts i've found over the months from a very good site in T-Nation.

I haven't updated the (old) thread in awhile. I started in Jan, now it's July, body has taken a big difference in look. Much more tone, lost 15lbs, finally got a chest, lol. I love it. Still got more work to do, but im very happy with my results and pace.

cinco.. loading and updating your first post with common Q and A would be awesome... and links to places like fitclick that show you each individual exercise etc, and maybe even a link that shows/explains different supplements?

I dunno, just an idea...

Hit they gym last night after about a week layoff. Been doing starting strength for a few months now with a couple friends. Considering purchasing a belt when the poundage starts to get heavy. Anyone have any experience using them or recommendations on some brands?

Trying to get down to 190, so far only lost 7lbs since the summer started since I was busy with school (done now).

Consistency is key, I keep telling myself that. I lost a pound since last Friday, but I feel I can do better. I had a cheat day yesterday, which wasnt that bad, just an extra plate of rotisserie chicken and rice, but I need to stop those. Im cutting rice completely out of my diet til I reach my goal. I just hope I dont gain it all back once I get down to 190.

On another note...damn shoulder pull. I havent done shoulders/chest in almost 2 weeks because I messed up my front shoulder. Feels batman.

you aren't kidding about consistency. I lost about 25lbs from January to March by keeping to a strict low carb diet. Felt like crap at first, but after like 3 weeks it was ok. You think of trying Keto?

Whats up NT... Im finally off my training and now I have a set schedule. Working 12 hours but going to start my day at the gym.

Now the real question is the diet. I haven't been good during my training phase of work, but now that I am off training no excuses time to diet right. Anyone have good recipes ?
