In my world the concept of doing something
differently to induce growth does not exist,
and usually leads to problems.
The preferred concept is that something is being
done improperly until the point where consistent
gains are obtained using the same protocol.
In closing, doing the same...
You have a lot written on this thread; I'm having
a bit of trouble taking it all in.
Generally speaking the best thing that can be done
is keep accurate records, analyze thoughtfully,
and follow your goals.
Further inspection shows that weight training alone is
sufficient to induce the loss of body fat coupled with
the proper intake.
So to answer your question, the answer is none when
Lately 10 minutes on a bike post-workout allows me
to lose 0.5-1% bodyfat every ten days. Typically I stop
around the time I start sweating. This is probably the
minimum amount of effort needed to produce results.
I'm not a big fan of HIIT since it requires extensive warm-up.
I also consider...
Because your body needs those nutrients? Carbohydrates are the
source of many important substances. Consider blending vegetables,
fruits, and other foods in some amounts for your fast. This is a much
better idea than just doing something like water.
I've experimented with high protein intake, low protein intake,
varying the time of carb/protein intake, and some mixed mode
combinations. So far my results have shown that for reducing
body fat neither is super important, with the most critcal components

The best thing you can do is be mature about the situation,
focus on your goals, and track your progress.
I wouldn't too much about the size of your muscles while you
are cutting. The goal is to drop body fat... your muscles will keep
growing as your training progresses/improves especially if...
I'm not sure what your problem is. It sounds like you are having
trouble keeping track of your own stats?
If this is the case, why not start writing things down.
Making gains consistently is easy when you write things down.
And just as important it helps with adjustments for
when things don't...
It depends on the type of training. Periodization can be very much
precalculated to allow rest cycles to be weaved around heavier traning.
This is largely dependant on the system you are following.
Generally speaking, you should be following the principle of progressive
overload all around...
Its a tough call. I was reading a great article today on Fats and Cholesterol.
Here is the relevant section for you:
To be on the safe side, you could limit yourself to one yolk
a day. I eat only one hard-boiled egg every day.
I always hate throwing things away. If I where you I'd consider...
I have been experimenting a lot lately with my running and
trying to improve particularly for HIIT.
So far what I have seen as being lacking the most from my program
is what is most important: rest. I always have tons of effort
(everyone usually does), and want I to get out there every day
Unless you are at a caloric deficit (meaning that you are
consuming less calories than you use) you are going to be
burning the excess calories that you are consuming when running.
At an intersection with running and diet you'll hit a tipping
point where weight loss is possible.
To add on to...
While people can lose weight weight training,
running is far more effective.
I personally hate lunges, and have have never had soreness
or fatigue/pain in my quads from any exercise besides leg extension.
