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 $$$. ...

How important are macros?

Just wondered how important macros are when trying to lose fat? As it stands I’m trying to eat at least 130g of protein a day, staying under 1300 cals. I don’t actively avoid carbs at all costs but I do try and keep it minimal.

Can you work on your TDEE from your rate of loss?

I'm sure there's a ballpark way to guesstimate this but not sure what youd do. So say if you're losing 1lb a week on 2000cals, what is likely maintenance? I'm guessing people will say 2500 based on 500cal defecit rule of thumb but is there a more accurate formula in existence where your weight,...

Current thinking on cut to bulk transition period?

Were you treated differently after losing alot of weight?

For those of you that have lost alot of weight tell me if people acted diff. towards you or if you noticed anyother changes with yourself. Did you get more stares? Did your genitals change in size? Did you get negative or jealous reactions fromn friends/family? Discuss
