First of all you don't need to get sore to build muscle, and the longer you train the less frequently you will experience DOMS. Furthermore, soreness is induced mainly from the eccentric portion of a lift, so doing a 1 rep max on deadlift there is... (more)

IMO, too much canned food. High sodium retains water. I agree also , you may be overtraining and not giving your body time to heal and it's considering itself injured and holding all calories.

sounds like you are eating very few carbs. The "stubborn belly" could be from a ton of things -- one of which is too much cortisol build-up. You may want to consider implementing more rest days to help your body heal.

If you are worried about fat gain, you should get your body fat measured--caliper or bodypod if you can afford it. Scales are notoriously inaccurate--you've likely put on some nice muscle.

First off, Crossfit will probably help you lose more weight without bulking up as much. For Stronglifts, If you can't do it 3 times a week, it isn't a great program. The risk of crossfit is injury. Two different indipendent studies examining... (more)

It sounds like you do not eat enough for your activity level, so your body is trying to hold on to fat stores because of higher cortisol consentrations. Up your carbs a bit, and your total calories for a few weeks and watch the weight come off. (more)
