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...

Fat loss plateau - not sure how to get over the hump

First off, I know my macros. I recalculate them every time I lose a little weight. I'm at a 700 calorie deficit a day as well. Also, just so no one tells me that my macros are wrong (sorry, but I'm tired of hearing this), I've had the nutritionist at my gym help me calculate everything from macros...

I've been keeping pretty rigorous numbers on everything I've been doing/eating in an attempt to hit 12% body fat but I am apparently not doing everything that I can. At first I...

Getting from 13% to 10% - should I do low carb or intermittent fasting?

The last time I tried to cut, it didn't end well. The first half of the cut was easy, but toward the tail end, I think I lost equal parts fat and muscle. Granted, this was based on the tape measure method, so my bf% was not exact. Still though, while I noticed a reduction in belly size towards the...
