Outside the scope of our FAQ currently are the questions we keep having to answer, often slightly 're-branded'.
I am X and I want to be-fit/be-toned/lower-body-fat
What exercise routine should I use? I want to lose weight.
What exercises will reduce my belly fat?
I can't go to a gym, what exercises can I do?
Reddit uses a pretty good FAQ and directs these questions towards the FAQ.
We use "close as duplicate" but I find that the duplicates I close against aren't always the same. This question, for example is essentially "How do I lose belly fat" but it is not a direct equivalent. There are a lot of open "belly fat" questions that have not been closed so finding the right one is always time-consuming (if you don't have the link saved).
Unlike most of SE where the answer usually is accepted as applicable to all, everyone here seems to view themselves as a special snowflake and believe they can ignore the advice to others because their body is unique and therefore their advice should be unique too. After all, "those fitness trainers are paid well aren't they?", "It must be more difficult/complex than just "eat less, move more".
While cautious of the potential over-use of "just go read the fucking FAQ" for every question is it time to start putting one together and crowd-sourcing the 'perfect' answers?
