    Don't mean to rudely jump in here but absolutely. A caloric deficit without exercise will result in weight loss. However, exercise is ideal.

    They get piled on, get discouraged, don't want to continue. Don't blame them lol

    Creatine alone should make you weigh a bit more if you just started taking it. This too will stabilize and make scale tracking a little more reliable. It's never THAT reliable - but it will make it a...

    You haven't put on much muscle or fat during that timeframe given you are indeed eating the amount you say you are. The most likely culprit is - you guessed it - water retention.

    In addition to what was said above, just track it.

    Download the cronometer app on your phone and just input what you eat each day. I would aim more for about .8-1g/lb minimum. From there, you...

    Really can't come up with another explanation other than water retention from increased exercise or faulty scale.

    Have you been consuming a notable increase in sodium and/or carbohydrate since...

    It’s the same for me except too little fat over a couple days seems to make me kind of dead and unmotivated, on top of constantly being hungry. Not the same unmotivated feeling from lack of energy...

    Same. I tend to like volume in my food usually and that more often than not tends to lean more on the carby side. I do think fats taste amazing though, just can't really "fill up" on them.

    I seem to operate better with a slightly higher fat intake than the minimum so I’m consuming about 70g right now, which is a little under .5/lb for me.

    No plans on increasing right now but...

    Don't mean to hijack the thread, but got a question here (I think I already know the answer).

    Anecdotally, I can second this. I've never been less hungry in my life on a consistent basis than when I went low carb.

    Could be mistaken, but it usually just has a lot to do with blood sugar...

    IF is just a protocol to make calorie restriction more manageable for some people. It has very little or no added benefit in terms of weight loss vs a traditional calorie restriction.

    Gotta agree with Adam here, I'm a little confused.

    Why do you think practicing IF will allow you to cut carbs?

    Quick calories that are not very filling:

    Protein - Isolate powder
    Fat - Oils (fats are very satiating for me but oils won't "fill" you up much at all while still providing you with fats.)

    Do you like spicy oats?

    I've added jalapeno's and cayenne pepper to mine before and they've come out tasting great. Also, ground cumin tastes really good mixed in with oats.

    Agreed with the others.

    However, your number one priority when it comes to tracking, even on a lean bulk, should be gym progression. Don't let the fear of a little fat gain hold your strength and...
