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...

I have been struggling to lose weight for years! Some doctors told me that it is about hormones, the other that I need to change my nutrition... But, I found out that it is all about metabolism. Do you have any recommendations?

Does fasting cause muscle loss?

I usually have one meal a day because I enjoy having one large meal in one sitting than splitting them at different times. It’s more filling. If I’m in a surplus at the end of the day, and I’m fasting for 23 hours, would my body start breaking down my muscle if I start feeling hungry? Would...
