Hows ur training goin dude?
Hold the fork with ur opposite hand. This will slow down how fast u can eat and it will register within ur body that you are full quicker. Thus helping you eat less.

Everything is going good on this end! Added about 30lbs to my 1RM on Deads and about 15 lbs on my squat. Yet I have lost about 3 lbs in weight...on accident! Lol plateau on bench tho :\

Fitness Tip #1: Try fasting a day or two a week. Calorie restriction is currently the only scientifically supported method of lifespan extension. And one day won't hurt your gains/catabolize muscle as in a resting state you'll preferentially burn fat and glycogen. Not only will it help you stay lean, it'll increase your insulin sensitivity dramatically for the following day, when you do eat.
If you're still really worried about gluconeogenesis, simply down 5-10g of leucine every 3 hours during your fast - boom, total activation of mTOR. Though, this renders moot a lot of the pro-auto****ic benefits of fasting.

The first part that I want to offer for the challenge will involve me on a soapbox for a bit; I apologize (kind of...). Bodybuilding is a science and not an art. When I first started, I didn't quite believe that, but I have come to terms with that - there is no art to this sport/lifestyle at all. Like they say football is a game of inches, this is a game of calories. If you're even slightly over or under by what you need based on your current goal, you won't be where you want to be. It is incredibly easy to eat just a little bit extra and not cut the final pound of fat you want to.
By the same token, proper form and range of motion are king at the end of the day. It's a battle with your ego, because while more weight is what we want to hold overhead, it's meaningless if all things aren't in order. For example, when I was in high school, I'd do 1,000 crunches every night. Only problem was I wasn't contracting my abs, because at that time I didn't even know what that felt like. So, all of that was virtually for nothing (other than some form of a pathetic cardio workout). Just the same, guys can throw a ton of weight on a squat bar or on a curl bar, but if you're not using proper form and range of motion and utilizing the actual contractions of the muscles desired to work, it's meaningless.
I realize that's not so much of a tip, but it is so often overlooked and hopefully if anyone reads this thread down the road, they'll take a step back and take that all in.
So, it would seem wrong to not give a nice little tip, as well, so here's one. Buy a cheap watch with a timer and wear it during all of your workouts. Start the timer from the second you are ready to attempt your first lift after whatever warming up you may do. This will ensure you stay on track and not rest too long (as most do) or too little (depending on your goals and specific training style) between sets. It also gives you an overall workout time that you can attempt to beat the next time you do it. Most people don't realize just how long they're actually waiting between sets; this makes sure you do.
Psalm 34:10 - "The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing."

That is my main gripe with people who are at the gym. Not only is the form wrong (yea you can squat 600 pounds* but how much can you squat PARALLEL?) but getting on your cell phone in between EVERY set is hurting them so much. You don't need to work out for 2 hrs. I worked out at the gym I work at part time and my work outs suffered b/c I knew all the members and we would BS all the time during our workouts. Now I do crossfit and the intensity is through the roof. I'm ready to die after 15 mins where as at the regular gym 1.5 hrs in and I was fine I hate seeing people give up when they aren't getting results b/c they aren't really working out.
