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...

Three Years In -- And SO Ready to get there!

ABOUT ME I’m 5’6”, 247.5 as of this morning. My goal is 180. Body fat percentage, about 39. I’ve been on a weight loss journey for the last three years, but I have been overweight since I was a child. I have zero memory of ever being at a normal weight. I don’t know what that’s like. ...

Probably the only guy in the world who's physique has gotten worse from losing fat

A while ago I decided to finally cut for the first time since I started lifting. My body fat was uncomfortably high -- my butt was getting really large, in particular -- so I figured it was time. I was NOT expecting how little fat had been stored in my glutes relative to the rest of my body. I...

Why healthy eating is not recommended?

The advice I see here seems to strongly sway towards eating a caloric deficit but not so much for eating healthier. For me eating healthier makes me eat less and keeps me fuller for longer plus its good for your since it has all those nutrients your body needs. So why isn't health eating...

2 meals a day for weight loss (when will I adjust)

I’m currently trying to lose weight & eat 2 bigger meals a day. Small meals just don’t work well for me since I am never satisfied. I do intermittent fasting as well. However I’m finding myself extremely hungry. Like extremely. Especially at night and before I break my fast at noon. I think I’m...

Losing weight/fat with oats and quark

First off: I am not a bodybuilder nor do I actively work out. I do some cardio every day because I drive about 15km on my bicycle every day but yea, not working out as in lifting. What I am here for is to ask whether what I plan to do is good for losing some weight. I figured that this would...

Question How to maintain energy while cutting

Hi all, I am brand new to this forum and this is my first post - thanks in advance for any of your suggestions here. After a very unsuccessful bulk for 2 months (I did not gain a single pound -- but did this with a PT, clean diet, careful training, etc.), my PT decided to do a cut now, then try...

How much happier has weight loss made you?

I know this may sound dumb, but I always feel like when I lose all the weight and I am healthy, that I'll just be happier. I'm not sure how exactly but I just won't feel as bad. Like somehow the chemicals in my body will balance out so that I won't be as depressed, or things won't affect me as...

Increased anxiety during cuts/deficits

Good afternoon forums. I've been bodybuilding for over a decade now but I still seem to struggle to get down into the single digits, in fact I've probably only been that low once in my early twenties. The main problem I seem to face is increased anxiety and panic attacks when I'm deep into my...

Thinking About Alternate Day Fasting

- Not for health benefits, but my appetite is pretty big. - I can cut on 2700, but it's not a lot. How do you calculate calories going by the above number? I don't want to mindlessly eat on eating days as it would be hard to know how many cals to drop when I plateau. Trust me, I've...

How many calories?

So I started lifting in February 2020. Just started because someone asked me how much I could bench and I had no idea. I had been working out with dumbells for about 2 years off and on before that. So bought a barbell and some weights. Last year I focused on gaining strength. This year I want to...

How much can BMR/TDEE vary between similar people?

Given people of the same height and weight and similar lifestyle. Can one person have 1000 calories more in BMR/TDEE than another for example? Or do they only vary by few hundreds or so?

Best way to track weight loss?

How do you guys track weight loss? Right now im weighting myself 4 times a week in the morning, then takes the average of those days, would this be an okey way to get an estimate at where im going? Also is there any need to care about day to day loses as long average weight is dropping?
