Living a life of one night stands builds up unhealthy habits later in life when DO seek out a true life long companion. Most people like you will struggle for the rest of your life to find someone to settle down without having a breakup or divorce.

People are extremely lazy when it comes to relationships in the 21st century, the moment they feel a sense of boredom or dissatisfaction they break up to find someone new no different than a product.

I want to cum in a ziploc and mail it to her

i don't understand wtf you're talking about

if you're concerned on the amount of fat on the meat then purchase lean cuts, or purchase lean meats (chicken, white fish, etc).

if you're referring to the amount of fat cooked off then don't bother trying to calculate it because it's: 1. immeasurable, and 2. not significant enough to warrant consideration.

I don't quite understand the whole "cutting" aspect of lifting.

What I do understand is the "bulking" which is intaking calories to help build muscle mass.... but cutting? Do some of you gain too much fat and have to cut back? I'm soc confused.

How do you guys count calories when you're dealing with meat and fat loss? I know protein content isn't affected that much, but fat is. What do you all do for that?
12 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I assume it's all there.

If I'm bulking, I'm eating ~200-300 over anyways.

If I'm maintaining, a little less isn't going to hurt in the long run

If I'm cutting, a little less is preferred

Hitting your macros perfectly is nice and something to try to do, but consider it something with +/- 20 g for any macro and hit your total calories for the day
I'm on keto, so I just count the precooked macros then I just drink all the fat that runs into the George Foreman grease tray.

Thanks guys.

Do this, before cooking your meat, trim the fat off the meat with a knife (as much as you can, don't worry about the little one you can't remove). Then weigh the meat and fit the number that shows on the scale in your macros. That way you know you're not eating the fat.

On a side note I have jaw surgery in the summer to fix an underbite , so I'm bulking until then. Anyone have any recommendations on what to do for exercise post surgery, any god tier shakes, or just general advice to not loose whatever muscle I happen to put on.

Start eating very calorie dense foods like nuts (almonds, walnuts, peanuts etc) for a snack and start drinking a lot of milk. Get like a 2lb bag of natural almonds and set a goal to eat it all in a week. Eating any shit food just for calories will make you feel shitty and could make you break out, just eat whole foods and increase serving sizes.

I really don't want it to be true, but I may as well accept it as more of a possibility than not. She's already been proven to be a liar. No reason she wouldn't lie about that too.

Yeah, at least I'm not a subhuman nigger pretending to be a beta cuckold on a taiwanese cross-sticthing forum.

What's hilarious though, is that your self-esteem and confidence is completely non-existent, so this is the only way for you to experience any power or control in your worthless life.

You're even more pathetic than cuckolds themselves kek.

Yo /fit/ does anyone here take Rogaine?

I'm about to start and the Internet says to use the liquid but my doctor says to use the foam. I really don't care how this shit gets in my hair, it just needs to get there.

Does anyone use either Rogaine liquid or foam? Would you recommend it?

>using Rogaine
>Not balding natty

Minoxodil foam saved my life. Started as early as I saw the signs of hair loss: thinning hair, receding line, lots of hair falling out during showers. Started foam 2 times a day and it regrew and thickened my hair in a couple months, been maintaining on it for 5 years now. Best decision I ever made. there is a 10-15% chance it may not help you (it is just a topical vasodilator, what's wrong is your hair follicles are not receiving enough blood/nutrients). Starting earlier is better, it is easier to prevent loss than to reverse it.

Friend has the liquid and doesn't like it, runs all over the place. I just spray a line of foam in my hair, rub into scalp, and wash my hands. Takes about 10 seconds in the morning and 10 at night. Make sure you only use it on your scalp, if you get it on your hands or forehead, wash it off, it will and can cause a vasodilatory reaction very similar to an allergic rash.

Best of luck. There are a lot of people who say you need to get fin right away but I did not and it has been great. Maybe I just got lucky but minoxodil foam is a small investment for like what, $100 a year to have a full head of hair. Also if you can, get the costco brand (kirkland). It's cheaper and its the exact same thing.

Maintaining for 5 years with just minoxidil is pretty amazing, I've never heard that. Seems extremely rare though, and I wouldn't expect anyone else to bank on that happening to them with minoxidil alone. Most people do well with it for 1-2 years and then have a MASSIVE shed and lose a ton of ground over a short period of time. And I wouldn't be surprised if you go through the same eventually.

That's pretty much why fin is required, and why fin/minox is a recommended combo. Finasteride stops (or drastically slows) hairloss for a while, while minox promotes regrowth.
>Finasteride boosts testosterone.
wow u really don't know what you are talkign about.

implying dht is not important for mens health
>(it is just a topical vasodilator, what's wrong is your hair follicles are not receiving enough blood/nutrients

the mechanism for which minoxadil works is not known u fool
