    ^ There's your mistake.

    Fat loss is about how many calories you eat. And you can't spot reduce/choose where you lose fat from. For a lot of men, the belly/midsection will be the last place it...

    It depends on what method you used to arrive at your daily calorie goal. If you used a TDEE calculator and factored in your exercise as part of your activity, it's already accounted for and you...

    Your exercising and diet tips will do absolutely no good. You can't choose where you lose fat from your body, no matter what exercises you do or what foods you eat.

    My opinion is that Person B crashes and burns after a couple weeks and never makes it through to 60 days. A 1500 calorie cardio expenditure is going to have him running somewhere around 10-12 miles...

    If you're not losing weight, you're not in a calorie deficit.

    ^ Read that post, and then read it again - he hit the nail on the head. Losing weight has nothing to do with your training routine, your supplements, or "getting your metabolism rolling". It has...

    To quote Eric Helms, "Once our body's nutritional needs are met, we don't get extra credit for consuming more nutritious food".

    Regardless of what a program specifies, subbing out exercises which cause pain/injury for ones that don't will always be more optimal. It's hard to make progress if you're constantly injured and/or...

    1) 10 minutes of HIIT is going to amount to diddly squat in terms of calorie burn. And what most people call "HIIT" isn't really HIIT anyway.

    2) As has already been said in this thread (and your...

    It's a pretty safe generalization to say that Netflix diet "documentaries" are pseudoscientific, biased, agenda-driven trash.

    IIRC, he was walking 10k steps per day, lifting twice a week and doing BJJ twice a week, so definitely not inactive.

    On average he lost about 1.75 lbs per week during that 30 days, so that would...

    First off, you're not eating enough calories to even sustain an infant. The meals you listed come out to less than 500 calories per day. It's not surprising in the least that you feel weak and have...
  • He's 5'4" and around 150 lbs.

    He's 5'4" and around 150 lbs. <1600 calories sounds pretty reasonable when you take that into consideration.

    Increasing cardio by 15-20 minutes is going to make a negligible difference in your calorie expenditure. Also, I agree with the above posters who said that how much time you spend lifting weights is...

    There is nothing magical about keto and it is no more effective for fat loss than any other diet/macro composition.

    It may be "worth it" if you find it to be sustainable and helpful for you to...

    30 is nowhere near too old. I started (this time around) at 53 years old, lost 75 pounds and am in the best shape I've been in since my teens. I could run circles around my 30-year old self and...
