Sticky Thread Sticky: The Metabolic Slowdown Thread

Yes, we know there is no true starvation mode, i.e. your body can never outrun a caloric deficit. What we do know, is that your body will make metabolic adaptions to combat a caloric deficit. Perhaps, your bmr will decrease, or your body will become more efficient at burning calories through...

From what I've been reading in this forum recently, most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some online 'trainer' who's only trying to scam their $$$. ...

No need to tell me they aren't 100% accurate. I already know most are up to 10-15% off. I'm just a bid odd in that I like numbers #spreadsheets4everything (even if they have to be taken with a grain of salt). Back in 2014, the Bodymedia Fit was tested as the most accurate with a 9.3% error rating....
