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 $$$. ...

Konjac noodles: 20 calories for 200 grams of food (mostly fiber)

I had 2 of these yesterday and fell below my calorie targets. They go to your gut and hang around for a long time. Apparently if you don't drink enough fluids this can even be dangerous. I ate them plain. Anyone else use these? What do you put on them?

How many calories are in a Large Pizza Hut Crust?

I realized that I almost never eat the crust, but still eat around 3-4 slices whenever my family gets pizza, usually once a week. How many calories can I remove from my calorie count from this? If you also have the carb count and protein count, that'd be great. Any good estimate would be...

Should I continue this program during my cut?

So maybe 2 months ago, I tried cutting. I ended up having way too extreme of a deficit (I was eating 2000 calories a day, was previously bulking at 3000), and noticed within like 2 days I felt much weaker. I went back to bulking again, and now I've gained a bit more fat than I was expecting, but I...

Is this alright?

So I recently started doing weightlifting and eating healthy to lose fat. I calculated my tdee to be around 2000 so I've been eating 1500 calories daily. I've been losing weight at 2lbs/week from 165, to 152. Is this fine, or too much weight at once? Also, Is it possible to be gaining any weight in...

What do you usually do when you're not 100%? I wasn't sick yesterday but was exhausted from work and just not all there.
