    I'm getting made to gain 6 kg ahh !! I'll have to maintain it for around 4 months afterwards as well until I am able to loose again. I would rather do it by muscle so I need tips on how to build it. Any advice? I also heard it's easier to retain water after you strength exercise, which is good...

    HELP!! I'm currently 34kg and my target weight set by the medical team is 40kg. I've already gained as my starting weight was 30.5 kg. But that still means i have 13 pounds to go until I'm left alone. I'm terrified of looking different, even though I know I'll still be very skinny. (I'm 5'2 in...

    This might sound very stupid, but my scale says I'm 43kg muscle. I weigh 64kg. My ugw is 45kg. I obviously can't lose only fat to get to my UGW, because my bones also have weight and there is water in the body too. I am probably going to lose muscle, but is that even safe?

    Hello all, at the moment I'm sitting at 113lb but I have a lot of muscle in my legs (and I have abs which I don't like) too much. I tend to exercise to extremes - weight lifting + running, running 45+ miles, or some sort of mix of this - but it has not helped my issue which is that I want to...

    Pre lockdown I was at my lowest weight, circa 48kg (157cm). I was pole dancing and going to the gym 3 times a week (on different days) and high-restricting at 800-1,200 cals at dinner only. TBH It was pretty sustainable and I looked genuinely good, I wanted to loose more but lockdown hit. 18...

    Okay so I've been freaking out a bit about my weight plateauing despite eating less than 800 calories a day with a BMR of about 1700. I suddenly realised that in the last month I went from pretty much lying in bed all day/sitting down all day, to walking around 10,000 steps a day or roughly 7kms...

  13. Exercise
    I used to go to group fitness classes 3-6 times a week for "free" through my university, but unfortunately since the pandemic happened that is no longer an option for me. I will never be on campus again as I'm graduating soon, and I don't have the money to pay for a gym right now. I've always...
