    A lot of people are bad at counting calories. I tend to think that people who claim they need to cut calories to poverty levels in order to lose fall in that group. You may be better at calorie...

    It's completely normal not to show a scale loss every single week. There's absolutely no reason to think there's anything wrong as far as how much you're eating for weight loss.

    However, I do have...

    You would be better off picking one goal and focusing on it--fat loss while maintaining muscle or building muscle while limiting fat gain. "Both" gets you where you are now--frustrated and feeling...

    To me, the difference in your pictures looks like it could be due to a difference in flexing. I find it very difficult to believe that you are eating 1500 calories on a regular basis if you're...

    Yikes. That was a very condensed version of the stickied post. If you want helpful advice you have to be willing to actually learn something.

    Determine your calorie, protein, and fat goals. Whatever calories are left after you get your protein and fat can be used for carbs and/or more protein/fat.

    That's a theoretical maximum based on a research review. It's not an actual proven number. I'm not saying it's wrong but it's not the gospel truth that people seem to like to think it is

    If you're going to worry about a tiny bit of fat that isn't noticeable to anybody but you at this point, prepare to spin your wheels forever. It's a complete waste of time to attempt to burn it...
