I don't know what's healthy vs. not healthy when it comes to bodyfat (on the low end, anyway), but I would also suggest bulking up. When you bulk up, incorporate into your routine weighted abdomin...

Is there a consensus on using a protein shake for the first meal of the day?

I used whey protein as a first meal for a week, that was the only thing I changed in my diet, and I didn't lose any weight that week. Went back to hard-boiled eggs the next week and lost 5lbs. I c...

Very much so. I get sick every cheat day and feel like garbage for the next 24hrs. If it wasn't mandatory, I'd quit doing them.

Jack Daniels

No alcohol except for very dry red and very dry white wines. Go hog wild on your cheat day though. And no more than 2 glasses an evening. The idea is not to drink any calories.
