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...

Efficacy of occasional all-day fasts

Hi. I am going to start tracking calories more and placing less value on exercise, as I find it is easy to over-estimate your caloric expenditure through exercise. So, RMR + a conservative allowance for exercise makes sense, before focusing predominantly on caloric intake (obvious stuff). I was...
