    You are clearly in denial and don't want to realize the truth. People here have convincingly explained why you are not losing weight, take their advice! Buy a scale now and not in two weeks. When it...

    Best of luck, hope you will succeed! At that weight (which is really, really unhealthy for you) I would aim to lose weight as quickly as possible for as long as you can (aim for about 1% of your...

    You could easily turn your weekly calorie deficit into a surplus doing this. If you tracked how much you eat during those cheat meals it may shock you. If you are consistently losing weight every...

    I agree it is easier to build muscle as a beginner (of course). But you seem to think it is impossible past the beginner stage, and that is not backed by available evidence. Cannot post links yet due...

    Completely agree! It is probably optimal for muscle growth to be slightly above maintenance, then the potential for growth drops when you are in a calorie deficit and the potential drops more and...

    There are many studies that show that you can gain muscle in a deficit, even beyond the beginner/novice stage. I think a lot of people who think they "lose muscle" on a cut actually lose water and...

    Weighted pushups should be a good replacement for bench press provided intensity stays the same. There is a study showing that 6RM of bench press and 6RM of weighted pushups (loaded using resistance...

    Seems that you are making good progress so continue on what you are doing! Expect that your gains will be slower at this point going forward now that you have been working out for almost a year. As...

    Wow, great cut! Was wondering how fast you went in the end (how steep was the deficit)?

    Even with little to no activity outside of the gym I think there is no way you are eating 1500 calories a day. I didn't start doing cardio until relatively recently, but at 227 lbs I would have been...

    Eating at maintenance until you stop progressing and then reevaluate could be a good compromise between the different positions here. I would definitely not cut as you are already in the lower part...

    So if I understand this correctly, with 2600 calories you are eating about 0.43g fat per lbs of bodyweight. If you keep the macro ratios fixed as you lower calories, even with a minor calorie deficit...
