Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---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...

Is it true that the higher body fat you are the bigger deficit you can take?

I've gained a lot of fat since my head injury last year which i'm still trying to get better from. Recently checked my weight at my kickboxing coach's place, he has a scale that measures body fat and I think is pretty accurate, it says i'm 20% body fat at 177lbs. I actually think i'm about 22%-25%...

Unhappy Loose skin after VSG surgery-teen

I’m planning on doing the VSG surgery soon and I’m concerned about the loose skin I’ll have later. I weigh 370 lbs and am 6 ft 2 in. I hope to lose 200 lbs within about a year or so, and I’m 17. Will loose skin eventually tighten, or will I most likely need plastic surgery? I plan on doing...

Is there any benefit to cutting out processed sugars?

I've heard a lot of people claiming that in order to lose weight successfully you have to avoid processed sugars. Is there any benefit to doing that besides simply decreasing your caloric intake?

Is it fine for me to cut as a beginner?

I am 5'10, 25 years old and currently 190 pounds. I have no history with resistance training or anything like that, so it's all fat (Guessing 20-25% bodyfat(?)). I would really like to start off with cutting since my main goal is to get more lean, although while hopefully not looking like a stick...

Alright, so I am very comfortable with the weight I'm at, about 200lbs even. I am 6'3". I honestly wouldn't mind being 205 or 210, or even 215lbs really. I am just not happy with how the weight is accumulated. I am fairly strong, but I have a long way to go. I have a bit of a stomach, nothing...
