    Is that a question or a statement?
    The body doesn't struggle to lose weight...the mind does - keep measurements, keep your sanity.

    I'm an Englishman living in Canada...oh how I miss a decent curry!

    Former skinny fat member @ 158lbs and 18% body fat - now 205lbs and 15%. It's been a long journey but a rewarding one.

    There is no question in the above quote.

    If you are under your calorie needs for the day you are going to lose weight, assuming your needs are calculated correctly.

    Do you stick to a calorie deficit (minus your maximum daily allowance) or do you find yourself skipping calories simply because you don't have an appetite? Should we force ourselves to intake calories in fear of not getting enough supplements for the day?

    Since you're quoting me I'll assume you're asking me the above, but maybe you intended to ask OP.

    When I'm cutting, I stick to a deficit to the best of my ability. I will almost never have issues consuming too little food while on a cut.

    I'm currently bulking, eating slightly above maintenance, also not having any issues not getting in enough food. I honestly think I could eat 5k/day just fine--the only thing that would have to change would be my meal timing, in that I'd probably start eating breakfast and lunch if I needed to cram in that many calories in a day. As of right now, I can use a short feed window between 5pm and 11pm and hit 3k calories without problems.

    To your last question, I don't think we should ever "force ourselves", but at the same time, if you're setting a claoric deficit and still having issues getting there on a regular basis, I'd look at possible causes.

    In closing, I do think that eating too few of calories (falling well short of your caloric goal) repeatedly, is unhealthy.
