Sticky Thread Sticky: Don't look past the basics

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 $$$. ...

Clearly there are so many variables involved in how many calories are burned during any activity that any estimation is for entertainment only but it's interesting to see the differences between the numbers they got. All are for a 30 minute session...

Is it true most anorexic people have high body fat percentages?

I've read most anorexic people have high body percentages because when people starve themselves for a long period of time, their bodies will burn off more muscles than fat. Is this true? I was kind of shocked when I first read this. I've always wondered why most anorexic people have bloated...

When should you start lowering your deficit?

I'm at about 17% right now. I know my maintenance calories are dropping and will consider that as well. Is say 13% a good time to reduce the deficit? If aiming for a certain body fat percent is not the right thing to do, how and when do you start reducing it and by how much?

I’m at a pretty good weight but I still look really flabby

I started my weight loss journey about 4-5 months ago. Since then I’ve been staying at 1200-1600 cals a day.
