    "Abs" don't magically appear once you get to a certain BF percentage.

    Abdominal muscles are just that... Muscles and as such require time and effort to develop.

    Calipers and electronic scales are two of the more inaccurate testing methods.

    I'm in my 50s and my theoretical max is around 170 bpm.

    When I do cardio my HR gets up to about 160 and averages 146-152.

    Unless you have some sort of health issue, you'll be fine.

    Because you aren't logging/tracking your calories and thus aren't in a calorie deficit.

    1. Your metabolism isn't "slow". You've just started moving less each day due to "diet fatigue". Increasing your activity level slightly will correct this.

    That and your pant's size doesn't really equal your waist size.

    I can wear "size 29" pants but have a 32" waist (when correctly measured).

    2300 cal/day for a month with no changes?

    Congratulations! You've figured out what your maintenance calories are!
