    Looks like this week and last week's numbers...

    Looks like this week and last week's numbers decided to reverse themselves. I should have been 210 last week and 208 this week. But I think I am retaining some water that I whooshed last week. Things...
  • I would only advise reverse dieting for coming...

    I would only advise reverse dieting for coming off of a cut, not for trying to break through a stall. If you are not losing weight at 1500 calories, then you are either not measuring correctly...
  • I think the question should be less about losing...

    I think the question should be less about losing 10% BF, and but more along the lines of going from a high BF down to 15% or lower. If you are at 40% BF, then going to 30% in one cut is pretty...

    Made it to 208.2 today. For some reason this week was very strange. By Friday of last week, I was showing 208. Then things fluctuated up and down (even below 208) and back up again. So the scale...

    So the day after Thanksgiving was a fluke. That weight came off quickly and I have been steadily going down since. I have adjusted my timeline because I was a week ahead and this week confirms it. So...

    Great job John. I remember those days a few years ago when we got below 200. Glad you got there. I am looking at mid January to hopefully get there myself. Hope you keep it up!

    Yeah, I meant without flexing, but good to know you have some muscle weight too. One thing I forgot to mention is that it is very common to have constipation when cutting calories. This is especially...

    I think you have the right idea with weighing the food for a couple weeks, then dropping calories from there. I don't think all of the calories you drop needs to be carbs though. As long as you get...

    Good job everyone. I know a lot of us gained some water weight back so these numbers are really impressive. I have decided to adjust my Jan 1 goal to 202.0 in honor of the upcoming year xD

    It was definitely touch and go with Thanksgiving last week. But I managed to make it to 209.6 and am finally below 210 again. I estimate my BF to be about 25% now. I have now adjusted my goals to...

    The problem is that with 100 lbs to lose doing a recomp is going to make you worry too much about potential muscle loss and keep you from ever getting down to a body fat level that will show off the...

    I would like to verify that when you say you are eating 2400 calories, you mean that is the amount consumed in a day. Not the amount consumed minus the calories burned at the gym. Are you weighing...

    Tommy is right. You just have to get down to a decent weight before worrying about muscle. That said, you don't want to lose more than you have to and should continue going to the gym. At some point...
  • If it gets you to the gym, then just about...

    If it gets you to the gym, then just about anything is fine while cutting. I can't say the same for bulking as I am far from an expert on that subject. I would say that your energy could be low if...

    Thanksgiving made my scale change for today. Wednesday I was 211.8, yesterday I had a whoosh and was down to 210.0 (less after pooping, but I don't count that kind of weight loss ha!). Of course I...

    The turkey is not the only thing stuffed

    Definitely ate more carbs than expected... There were so many pies and I couldn't resist the bread I made. We will see what it does to my weight this week. I know tomorrow's weigh-in is not going to...

    Do you weigh your food? Sounds like a calorie counting error to me at this point. Do you have any recent pics? Also, I noticed you take your weight before going to the gym. I would only use the...

    Happy Thanksgiving

    For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving, what are your plans calorie wise? Personally, I am just going to try to limit the amount I eat but not really track today. I am trying to stay at or below...

    I like to weigh myself daily just to see what happens. I trust the process, so I don't get discouraged if weight goes up here and there. I have to admit that I didn't think I was going to lose much...

    As mentioned above, the main thing is to look at the total calories you eat. Those starchy foods can have a lot of calories if you don't watch the portion size. Of course, more exercise helps, but...
