strength training includes pilates doesn't it?
Yes and no. Pilates as the only form of strength training isn’t really enough. Whack out the weights
so for how long do you do a fasting period? always?
Full details of what I personally do and advise are in my plan :)
If I want to fast, is it good if I only do it one day a week, like on sundays, not eating at all will give me results? Or on some school days, only eating at lunch is okay? Do i really have to do it with a plan or just fast when I want? will it get me the good results? else, fi i eat for eight hours and fats for 16, do I have to do it wor a whole week and eat normally the other week and start again when I want? I don't have money to buy any plan...
You’ll still get the health benefits from fasting but you won’t get the weight loss from doing it like that
So, if I eat with a 500 calorie deficit per day, I need to stay a bit hungry, yeah?
Not necessarily, I don’t advocate going hungry. You can eat lots of food within those calories …focus on getting lots of veg. Low cal and filling
To lose fat before gaining muscle, should I stop completely doing pilates, squats, abs and so on? Should I only focus on stationary biking, running and dancing?
You should, in an ideal world, do HIIT cardio combined with strength training
What's your opinion on intermittent fasting?
I love it
I calculated how much should I eat to loose weight on ifyym calculator and t says it around 1550. I am eating about that amount (sometimes less sometimes more), as clean as I can. I am working out 6 times a week( always switching up my routine) and it's been a month and I still didn't loose any weight. I was maintaing my weight for half a year, but I gained some on vacation. I was always active, now I just deficited my calories, but there's no progress:/ May it be cause Im eating to little?
Normally when I get to a point like this I use intermittent fasting to break through it
I did a whole bunch of lunges a few days ago and ended up collapsing because I'm weak :/ thing is, my legs are still sore. Is this normal?
Yes. If you do more exercise than your muscles are used to you can be sore for a few days
