    I wouldn't even consider Sowell an intellectual. He's more of a political pundit that knows exactly what buttons to press to sensationalize his base of readers.

    Your eating schedule has no impact on your impact.

    All that matters is calories in vs. calories out. Whether you eat your calories all in one meal, or same amount of calories spread in smaller...

    Or to word it more simply, what % of your diet is protein depends on your caloric needs.

    Someone cutting on a <2000 calorie diet may need a higher % of protein than a highly active athlete who...

    You're right and those people are wrong.

    Those people sound totally clueless. It just seems like they go by whatever trendy diets their friends, coworkers or aunts talk about, but don't really...

    This and from the way the topic creator worded it, it seems like they're going in totally blind.

    If they want to have a calorie surplus, they should track their calories and shoot for a...

    Sure, but literally any food can cause a calorie surplus if you eat enough of it. The saying "it's the dose that makes the poison" is true here.

    Any calorie-dense food can make it easy to consume...

    1) Fat loss comes from caloric deficit. Whether you do it through keto or not is irrelevant. I wouldn't call those people experts; anyone can be an "expert" if they're at a calorie deficit. It's...

    The secret ingredient is Time

    I commonly see in these posts: "I've been doing this routine for 1-3 months, and I'm still seeing minimal results".

    It's possible you're not tracking calories accurately, or you're having cheat...

    XSquid99's comment is correct. You probably need to go down to the 165-170 to see 12% bodyfat.

    That's not because you're losing a ton of muscle. It's just that you never had as much muscle as...

    Finally approaching a normal BMI

    At 6'1", according to BMI, 189 lbs is the cutoff range for being at a normal weight. I'm currently 193 lbs (originally 311 lbs, 118 lbs lost). At this rate, in 2-3 weeks from now, I'll probably...

    No, but you need to have other interests and a social life.

    If you spend most of your free time just lifting and going on the internet, you won't be that interesting.

    You're either tracking your calories incorrectly, or you're not burning off as many calories from physical activity that you think you are.
    No matter what we say, you're just going to say that...

    1) At 18 BMI, you should not be cutting. If anything, I'd lean-bulk. Slightly raise calories by like 200-300.

    2) You say you workout 30 mins per day (20-25 mins of that is lifting), 7 days a...

    Both would have the same outcome obviously. It's sort of asking like what weighs more, 5 lbs of rocks or 5 pounds of feathers? They both weigh the same as presupposed by the question.

    However,...

    Then don't do it.

    If your goal is to have long-term sustained weight loss, you need to do exercises that you actually enjoy doing. Otherwise, you'll just do them temporarily and then stop.

    1 month is nothing. Give it at least a year. Instead of going on an extreme deprivation diet for 1-2 months, go on a more moderate sustainable diet that you can stick to long-term.

    Keep in mind,...

    Agreed. And even on that topic, everything is to a degree. Weight and looks matters to a degree. But there are other factors: your personality, social skills, how you use your free time, etc.

    I find it hard to believe, that at 223 lbs, you're eating 1500-1700 calories a day with regular exercise, yet are gaining weight. Are you 100% sure you're tracking every calorie accurately and...
  • How has losing fat affected your body image?

    Sorry if this is the wrong category for this topic, but I'll start with my experiences, and I'd like to hear other people's experiences. I'm a 6'1" male.
