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 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?

Red face High body fat but underweight

So I'm fairly skinny being 5ft 2 in and 100 pounds but I had my body fat measured some time ago and turns out I had 35% body fat which is very high.

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...

Thumbs up A great way of maintaining your weight...

There are many people who, after significant weight loss, fail to maintain their new lower weight over a longer period of time. They usually slowly go up and then have to do some sort of dieting once again to drop several pounds. It's just down, up, down, up, etc. If you love eating A LOT, but...

I've been working out 6 days a week for about a month now while eating at a deficit. So far, I've dropped about 6 pounds, but I still can't see my abs without stretching my skin with my hands. I think I started at about 16 to 17 BF.
