Can an admin get the scripts for the site fixed? As it is the site is unusable, because the scripts are unsigned.

Caloric Intake
(Disclaimer) I am not a physician, if you have serious concerns talk to a doctor If you feel fine, then you are OK. Severe restrictions can be unhealthy so it's up to you to listen to how you feel and weigh that against your tolerance. Be careful with huge deficits, they can cause you to binge eat to regain that satiety. There is anecdotal evidence that extreme low calorie diet coupled with high amounts of activity for overweight people can actually be detrimental to overall loss of fat. Try to make a sustainable change instead of balls out all at once. Also online activity calculators are ALWAYS high as far as energy expended.

Alkaline Water
So, your "proof" for your anecdotal experiences being empirical evidence is a funded, non-reviewed study with no posted findings? I'll go out on a limb here and bet there will never be any findings because there were probably never meant to be any. I'll also wait with bated breath for peer review on the no findings study (not really). Normally I wouldn't respond to this stuff, but your links are meant to obfuscate the points made by respected members of this community and are purposefully misleading.

dairy products
A cup of skim milk has roughly 90 kcals. If that 90 calories puts you over your energy expenditure for the day by 90 calories, eventually you will gain weight. No matter the insulin production or lack of, a body can't spontaneously create energy, so it can't "hang on to fat" if you don't feed it more than it needs. Really, that's all the complexity you need.

Having big problems losing weight on atkins
Atkins is merely a means to a caloric deficit. It works well for some. Unless you are at very low BF%, there is no metabolic damage or slowdown.

How much do I need to eat- (2nd week slump)
[quote=Austinrivers2]That is so true. People think dieting is ALWAYS about eating less, but it's always about what kind of things you put inside you. If you eat healthy then there's a great chance that you will be healthy too if you also do the right things with it. I'm on the Paleolithic diet and I couldn't be happier with what I have achieved.[/quote] This is the exact opposite of what I just said.

How much do I need to eat- (2nd week slump)
Sorry to say that a trainer should know that a week is not long enough to evaluate weight lost based on a deficit. If I were in your position, I would give it two more weeks and then average weight across those three. Three weeks IMO is the absolute shortest time to evaluate your TDEE against your caloric intake. After you get a GOOD baseline idea, adjust your intake. Changing intake from week to week before you know what your body is doing isn't going to get you far. And if your goal is losing body MASS, more calories is not going to make it happen faster. If your goal is to preserve lean mass while losing fat, upping your daily is a general way to lose slower, to preserve that lean mass.

Achieve How a Quick Weight Loss Can Be a Healthy
[quote=David Gomes]We're often told that losing weight is a simple mathematical equation of calories in, calories out. Burn more calories than you eat and you’ll lose fat. Is it really that simple? [/quote] Yes

gaining weight with exercise?
[quote=blueniamh]^ Well, that...but it also seems to be a fairly common phenomena. I've a fair few threads along the same lines. I did briefly read an article linked in one these threads that talked about an increase in fluid retention due to the muscles's need to repair itself. Although, I can't really say that exercise is my area :p. [/quote] That's definitely true. Especially when you have DOMS, the muscle tissue is holding glycogen for repair, and glycogen likes water. Also there are lactic acids and all other sorts of things. But I find it's easiest to subscribe to Occam's Razor first and look at what you can easily control.

gaining weight with exercise?
You need to record what you eat and track your caloric intake. You can gain weight eating only "healthy" food and you can't outwork a bad diet.

That moment when your perception of yourself changes...
I am eagerly awaiting this myself. I have taken comparison pictures and even though I am down 50 plus lbs. I can't really "see" it. Clothes fit much differently and sporadic comments are made, but in the mirror and photos I don't really see anything. Shirt off I still see a giant midsection with a slight amount of fat around the upper arms and chest. Event the appearance of my moobs hasn't changed much. So, plug away I will, until that day. You're admittedly one of my "to be emulated" folks on this site, so for my sake keep it up (kidding)!

This forum needs moderation
Perhaps not absolute moderation so to speak but maybe "janitors" that police that stuff voluntarily. It could be a large group as long as the permissions are limited. A written guideline as to what constitutes spam posting would keep those volunteering in the right direction. In my experiences the buttons usually don't work the way they are meant to and a breathing person works better. Worst case spam get through for a while, but at least some of it will get handled.

Unsupportive Comments from Mother-in-law
I have seen addicts act the same way. You stop doing something they still do and they attempt to goad you into going along for the ride. They do this because someone else finding something unhealthy for themselves and deciding not to do it, forces them to think about their lifestyle choices. Alcoholics don't like to be around former drinkers, and often (I know for fact) chastise them for choosing not to drink. The reason for this is that for them to recognize the former drinker had an issue with consumption, is to admit they do as well. Therefore the non-drinker, healthy eater is " strange" to them, when in reality they are more "normal". I have heard many anecdotes from households where one problem drinker quits and the other party does everything they can to sabotage the effort. Buying the favorite beverage (cookies) and consuming it in front of them, or buying beverages (cookies) for themselves claiming "I got it for you". Oh look, rambling from me, big surprise. :)

Not Having enough calories according to the RDI on FS
[quote=mislyd89]My current RDI is 25oo calories, does this mean i its ok to eat less than that?[/quote] That depends on your goals. If your goal is to reduce overall body mass, you can eat less. However with one caveat; if you go too low that caloric deficit will not be sustainable and you run the risk of easily gaining back that mass. If your goal is fat loss while conserving lean mass, you should strive to hit a deficit that puts you in the 1 to 3 lbs. per week range and add a simple weight training regimen. The beginner's 5x5 routine (Google it) is a good start. There is no way around the energy balance equation. If you consume less calories than you use, you will lose body mass. How you choose to do that and how sustainable it is, would be up to you.
