Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some...

Has anyone noticed their fat distribution apparently changing?

This could have to do with something else, but I've noticed that it seems that I have begun to carry fat somewhat differently than recently and wonder if anyone else has had any similar experiences. I've regrettably allowed myself to regain lots of weight and am now back at 260. I looked quite...

Hi all, I have joined the 3 month fat loss threads in the past and have found them really motivating. However in the past 6 months, I’ve been suffering a bit from anxiety and using sugar as comfort food. I think it’s a vicious cycle - eating more sugar makes me feel more unhealthy which...

Legal weight-loss drugs, what's the forum wisdom?

I'm not sure whether such discussions aren't allowed on these boards, but if it is allowed to discuss it: completely ordinary weight-loss drugs people get from their doctor, what are you guys opinion on that?

So I know that the guideline says a healthy waist to height ratio is 0.4 to 0.49, indicating no increased health risks, but if you had to narrow it down to 2 decimal points within this paricular range, that would be both most "healthy" and "aesthetic", what would your opinion be? Somewhere exactly...
