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 $$$. ...

Cut at -1k plus refeeds, or -750 continuously?

Which strategy is more liveable? 6 days at -1k equals 8 days at -750, meaning you could refeed at maintenance on every 7th and 8th day at the higher deficit and "break even". In reality I think I'd take just 1 refeed day and bank the remaining deficit, but not sure.

Caloric deficits - does every day matter, or are weekly averages just as good?

My trainer and doctor both recommended about 1700-1800 calories per day for weight loss as a 188 lb, 5'5" fortysomething woman who is active 5-6 days per week. I log everything I eat and drink and do pretty well except for two days of the week. My caloric average stays within the 1700-1800 range....

Exclamation I know math shouldn't be that accurate, but!!!!

Regarding the 1 lb fat = 3500 kcals, THIS DOESN'T MEAN AT ALL THAT if I spent 3500 kcals IN ADDITION TO MY BMR, I will ever burn 1 lb fat, since calorie expenditure won't be all from fats, right? I mean there's water and glycogen (in muscles and liver), in addition to carbs (glucose in the blood)....

Heya, In the middle of my summer-cut and have so far dropped from 81kg (got too fat from the bulk lol) down to 75 but I'm worried that I'll look tiny without that extra layer of fat bulking me up. I've already seen pretty big differences in how my shirts and jeans fit and I'm not sure I like...
