    Should I cut? I have a belly, and its summer. I was thinking I could get really drastic, cut down to 700-900 calories per day, and hit the stationary bike twice per day.

    Thoughts?

    How long have you been lifting?

    I thought you would know better than to ask this

    If you cut too fast you will lose a LOT of muscle. Even moreso if you don't lift while cutting.

    If you want to cut, 1-2 pounds a week is decent. No more.

    I think that's a pretty awful idea.

    About a year, only hard core since august. I didn't lift for three weeks, and got a nasty belly. I'm so fucking bored, I have to do something. I can only hit legs, abs, and arms so many times per week. I'm not being productive right now, and lifting is the only thing in my life where I can take my mind off things.

    Do legs MWF
    Do arms T/TH

    End of story
    Do NOT try to cut if you can't work you're whole body out. Weight training is far more important than cardio.

    I don't think so, maybe when I was really drunk. I don't want to be fat anymore.

    no deads yet, I have to take it easy. I'm really afraid of hurting myself again, especially with no insurance.

    I went to the Dr. and it cost me $550. I can't afford to do that again.

    I went to an acupuncturist after aboug 5-6 months of bad tendonitis in my right shoulder. After 2 visits I was completely fixed up and good to go. They put the needles in me, and also put these little pads that put a real small electric current into my shoulder. Whatever the stuff was, it helped.

    You realize you could have gotten 10 sessions of A.R.T. for that much, right?

    I don't know what that is. I didn't know what to do, aside from visit the doctor.
