Truth is I was actually around 530 pounds when I made that post, I was too embarrassed to state that I was in the 500's. Well, I started to lose weight around 8...

Adding cardio and/or lowering calories

At what point does it become too much cardio and/or too low calories? Presumably as the weeks continue and if you are losing weight between 0.5% - 1% total bodyweight, and you feel not too bad, can you continue to push it until you hit your goal? Example: -6"0 -169lb -Daily LISS cardio 40-60...
