Should I eat dinner or not?

Just try and eat healthier from now on and continue doing exercise. But don't skip meals,that will make your cravings go through the roof !

Protein or carbs to lose weight?

Neither. Protein will put on muscle and carbs stick to fat which makes it much harder to burn. What you want to eat is fiber. It'll make you feel full faster so you won't feel the need to eat as much. Keep up a good exercise regimen and you'll lose the weight in no time.

Should I work my abs daily?

Abdominals are a muscle group just like ur pecs, quads, etc....doing ab training everyday will not give you any benefits, from experience and knowledge i would suggest doing abs every other day or at least twice a week following your regular workouts.

What should i eat before a morning run?

A relatively high-carbohydrate, moderate protein, low-fat meal is best to consume before exercise. People often underestimate the importance of the carb part of the equation when fueling up for exercise. Choose carbs that are easily digestible and avoid high-fat foods or large quantities of any food just before working out because they don't digest well during exercise.
Try to eat something within four hours before your workout, but not within 30 minutes of your workout so that you can give your body some time to digest before you go out and run.

Here are some ideas for a pre-workout meal:

-Dates/Fruit Bar
-Fruit (Bananas are especially good)
-Peanut Butter

The right oil for your cooking

Use a variety of oils for cooking – some good choices include canola, sunflower, soybean, olive, sesame and peanut oils.

Speed Limit food

  • Limit processed meats including sausages, and deli meats such as salami. 
  • Limit takeaway foods, such as pastries, pies, pizza, hot chips, fried fish, hamburgers and creamy pasta dishes, to once a week.
  • Limit salty, fatty and sugary snack foods, such as crisps, cakes, pastries, biscuits, lollies and chocolate, to once a week.
  • Limit foods such as liver, kidneys and pâté.

Types of cholesterol

The two main types of cholesterol are:
  • Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) – also known as ‘bad’ cholesterol because it can add to the build-up of plaque in your arteries and increase your risk of getting coronary heart disease 
  • High-density lipoprotein (HDL) – also known as ‘good’ cholesterol because it helps to protect you against coronary heart disease.

Should i workout all the muscles in my body in one day or on seperate days?

It depends. Most beginners do a full body workouts 3 times a week. Pro bodybuilders work out each muscle group once a week. Separate days. Muscles around same area work together, when you work one out then a different one you're still using the previous one somewhat, this could put a lot of strain on some of the muscles and could lead to injuries.You need a workout schedule thats a major thing in building muscle.
if you work on one muscle to much it wont have time to heal. therefore less gains in muscle mass.

How many eggs per day should I eat for building muscle?

You can eat many egg whites but limit yolks due to saturated fat content .
You can also eat up to six eggs a week as part of a healthy, balanced diet.

Do we need Weight lifting gloves?

Of course use gloves, especially if you are having a bruising problem. With gloves you will focus more on the workout than the discomfort and when you can focus each exercise they are much more effective. When you lift you should always focus on the muscle being used during the lift. See it, feel it and use it to complete the move.If in fact you're not injured, ditch the machines, do more barbell/dumbbell work and use chalk to absorb moisture from your hands so the bars don't slide in your grip and don't cause you problems.

How long does your metabolism usually stay high after working out?

It's debatable but anywhere between 1-3 hours is what has been stated in numerous data/research. Workout can boost your metabolic rate, that's true. But if you will stop working out, then go into several stresses, you metabolic rate will also decline. So as long as you workout, you keep on maintaining your metabolic rate into a high stage.
