    Lightbulb Fat loss advice

    33 male 5'10 200lbs. Lowering my body fat for about 3- 4 weeks now this is the first time ive atempted something like this im down about 5lbs. Is 1.5 -2 a good rule of thumb for fat loss and not muscle loss becuase one generaly wants to keep whatever muscle they have, so does 1.5lbs a week generaly equal fat loss? And is it really just calories in vs calories out. So far it has seemed that way for me ( as long as you stay in your macro rstios and calories for the day. Pa i dont know why above it has my age listed as 49. Im 33 as of aug 9

    You will lose muscle while being in a deficit. Eating the right food and working out will help minimize the loss. Since it sounds like you are new to this the muscle loss should be very minimal as long as you take it slow and get you protein in.

    Yeah it doesnt seem like a difficult thing protein,workout,deficit cheat meal once a week(aka eat at maitenence) =fat loss. Not very complex but there's a lot of bs out there and people trying to sell stuff once you get past that the information os already out there..... For free lol you just have to apply it

    More BS from the internet I am afraid you don't need eat at maintenance once a week. Stick to continuous sustainable caloric deficit over a prolonged period of time whilst getting your required protein macro (and fats for health) and weight training on a well plan progressive full body program, (as in your whole body is worked throughout the program, no skipping legs) is all you can do to maintain muscle and lose fat. Ensuring your weight loss is not too extreme either helps as weight loss too fast is not maintainable and also can cause effects with weight training ability which may effect muscle retention.

    Get on the cardio train bud. You’ll lose weight fast. Shoot for 1-2 hours every other day. And lift some weights every other day. Eat clean.

    Proper diet is more important than cardio/weightlifting for weight loss. He can do all he can with the latter, but until he gets the former under control it will be like Sisyphus pushing that stone up the hill...

    Cardio will make the biggest difference along with weightlifting.

    I also started tracking my calories again, and paying attention to how much protein, carbs and fat, while reducing saturated fats as much as possible.
    For me, I run 3 times a week, walk every evening to hit 20k steps, lift weights regularly, and average not really a deficit in calories, but where I should be at in terms of my activity for the day.
    Just keep on going.

    Do you ever hit the weights and cardio same day? That’s when I feel like I make the most progressive. I eat clean around 1400-1500 calories but if I only do one or the other I feel like I’m only maintaining.

    The days I hit both a good cardio session plus hit the weights is when I feel the most progress.

    I do not do cardio. Simply because i do not like it. I do strength training 3 times a week.

    Maintain or increase in your strength training and work on a calorie deficit. Use an app to track your calorie intake and reach your ideal target
