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...

Any math wizards in here?

Is there any way I can take my current calorie intake and median weight loss to calculate my maintenance calories? So say that I lose 120 grams per day eating 2500 calories. Can I use those numbers to calculate my maintenance?

Got my DEXA scan, need a sane approach to weight loss.

Got my DEXA scan and it is not pretty I am 5'7" and 290 lbs and my lean mass is only 139 pounds. DEXA scan says my RMR is 1701 calories a day. Would lifting heavy 4 days a week and eating roughly 1600 calories a day be reasonable for good weight loss ?

Probably the only guy in the world who's physique has gotten worse from losing fat

A while ago I decided to finally cut for the first time since I started lifting. My body fat was uncomfortably high -- my butt was getting really large, in particular -- so I figured it was time. I was NOT expecting how little fat had been stored in my glutes relative to the rest of my body. I...

How many calories?

So I started lifting in February 2020. Just started because someone asked me how much I could bench and I had no idea. I had been working out with dumbells for about 2 years off and on before that. So bought a barbell and some weights. Last year I focused on gaining strength. This year I want to...

Cardio in the mornings

Would cardio in the mornings be a good way to lose fat. I am muscular and don’t have much fat but to sort of cut and slim down the fat from my bulking. Would this make me lose muscle however?
