Physical Activity

I am a little confused on what the level of activity means. I do cardio at the gym, and reach my 10k steps daily but I don't know where I stand on the physical activity scales for your calculators. Could you give an example of what light activity looks like?

Figuring out maintenance calories after a long cut

I love your podcast, and it has helped me a lot during my cut and strength training start. How that I have reached my ideal body weight and physique I am looking to add back the calories I cut. How can I figure out my maintenance calories after a long cut?

Effectiveness of Zig Zag Dieting

If the goal is weight loss/fat loss, what are your thoughts on the effectiveness of a zig-zag calorie deficit (i.e. eating below calorie target during the week so I can eat more on the weekend)?

I should be full, but I'm not

Is there any science behind not feeling "satisfied" after a meal despite the meal having all the right things? For example, there are times where I eat enough with good protein/macros, but I'm still hungry. Is there something I'm missing?

HMB for Fasted Training

Hey guys! I was listening to episode 115 on lean bulking, and Tony mentioned that he supplements with HMB because he's an early-morning lifter and trains fasted (~1:01:50 into the episode). I also lift first thing in the morning and was just curious about some of the benefits of HMB and what it actually does for your body. Side note: I've been lifting consistently for 12+ years now so significant progress is a bit of a fairy tale to me at this point, but I started the High Frequency Training program a few weeks ago after listening to episode 90 and I am FULLY hooked. I'm loving it and having some of the best workouts I've ever had - you guys did such a great job explaining it (both logically and scientifically) and the program is very well-structured. I feel like I'm going to break the Share button on Spotify with how many people I've sent that episode to and I'm excited to make Full Body my whole personality going forward! Thanks so much!
