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...

Who broke their diet, how much and how often?

A few days ago I switched from 1800 calories to 1700 because the scale said -0.3 pounds after 6 days and I was not feeling that hungry. I started being more ready for the next meal after that. On day 2 of 1700, at 8pm, I was working on taxes, feeling hungry, and decided I did not want to deal...

Is there a way to tell the difference between man boobs from fat and gyno?

I've always had man boobs all my life, and it's just lead me down a rabbit hole of eating disorders and extreme depression. I'm currently about 5'11 206 pounds. I know that is very overweight, but my man boobs triggered my anorexia in the past and even at 5'11 115 pounds they were noticeably...

Can intense bicycling preserve quadricep mass during a cut?

I've got knee problems and am prepping to do a cut. I don't want my quads shrinking. But the only way I can use more weight on my knee is if I don't go down far or if I use assistance once down far. Bicycling seems my best bet, and I can get them burning. If I lose 0.7% of my body weight per...

Was cutting slower before protein powder was invented?

A can of beans is 420 calories and 24g of protein, about 22%, protein. It is the densest source of protein in vegetarian whole food, and still less protein than what is recommended. I can't hit 150g while eating 1800 cal of just beans. Does this mean that before protein powder, people just had...

Do gram scales round up, down, or both?

If you put 12.8g of oil on the scale, does it read 12g, or 13g? Same question for 12.3g on the scale? I worry it reads 12g both times. Some people might have scales with 0.1 grams. When I eat 4-5 five micro-course meals, and many of my items are 12g and maybe really 12.7g, my 1800 cal for...
