Carbs, fas and genes
It correlates with my findings after 18 years of dieting, at the end of the day, the calories are what matter. Adherence to your calorie goals trumps any other variable.

Low-fat vs low-carb? Major study concludes: it doesn’t matter for weight loss
"A year-long randomized clinical trial has found that a low-fat diet and a low-carb diet produced similar weight loss and improvements in metabolic health markers. Furthermore, insulin production and tested genes had no impact on predicting weight loss success or failure. Thus, you should choose your diet based on personal preferences, health goals, and sustainability." https://examine.com/nutrition/...

To many carbs?
No, if your calories are within your goal the carb percentage does not matter. Do you weigh your food and count every bite even on the weekends?

Hi
The only thing I restrict is overall calories as that is the only thing that matters when fat loss is concerned. I still have foods that I love daily in moderation. Many will disagree but I believe that is the best way to go about your diet. Learning moderation rather than eliminating the things you love. It also takes willpower because who doesn't want to over indulge when you're eating something delicious?

H pylori
I suggest not worrying about a caloric deficit when trying to get over an illness. Get plenty of fluids, vitamins and rest. Get back on the diet when you are well.

Calories
Yes, your daily burn keeps going down as you lose weight if that is what you're asking. The app/website will reflect that.

Pizza substitute
Nice idea. Wish that I was more motivated to prepare food. I just get a Hot N Ready from Little Caesars when I want pizza. It's 560 calories for two slices and cheap.

Advice on curbing my appetite
"Your bodyweight depends on your total caloric intake more than on your macronutrient ratios (how many of your calories come from carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and alcohol). Increased caloric intake as an independent variable is more than sufficient to explain the current obesity epidemic,[1] without the need to find a scapegoat, such as high-fructose corn syrup.[2] A trial in a controlled setting (a metabolic ward) compared several isocaloric diets composed of 15% protein, 15-85% carbohydrate, and 0-70% fat. It concluded that caloric restriction, not macronutrient ratios, determined weight loss.[3] Comparing low- and high-carbohydrate diets over 6 weeks[4] and 12 weeks[5] led to the same conclusion, as did comparing a low-fat/high-protein diet with a high-fat/standard-protein diet.[6] Another trial in a metabolic ward noted that, in healthy individuals overeating for 8 weeks, caloric intake alone accounted for the increase in body fat. However, caloric expenditure, total weight, and lean mass increased with protein as a percentage of caloric intake.[7] In contrast, a previous study on the impact of protein on weight loss had noted that women lost as much weight on a high-protein diet as on a high-carb diet, but that subjects with high triglycerides lost more fat on the high-protein diet.[8] In people suffering from hyperinsulinemia,[9][10][11] insulin resistance,[12] or type-2 diabetes,[13][14][15][16] the results are mostly the same: Caloric restriction, not macronutrient ratios, leads to weight loss. Two studies noted, however, that lean mass was better preserved in women (but not men) on a high-protein diet,[10][16] and one study did find a greater weight loss (nearly entirely from fat) in the high-protein group (men and women).[11] In conclusion, losing weight requires a negative energy balance, which can be obtained by eating less, as we have seen, but also by exercising more.[17][18]" That page I linked has 20 scientific references at the bottom.

Advice on curbing my appetite
Science backs CICO. Paleo, Atkins etc are just personal preference. Choose the plan that you can stick to for life. Protein is the only macro that can make a significant difference. It is muscle sparing and is the hardest macro for your body to break down. At the end of the digestion process protein is closer to 3.2 calories per gram while fat and carbs are closer to their advertised amount because they are much easier to break down. https://examine.com/nutrition/... When calories and protein are equated, there is no difference in body composition differences whether a person gets the rest of their calories from carbs or fats.

Advice on curbing my appetite
[quote=davidzwarych]The sweet potato doesn't turn to sugar which turns to fat. [/quote] Sugar is just another source of calories. It cannot turn to fat when one is in a deficit. If it did, you'd be saying it is a superior source of calories. Don't spread myths, please.

Info: The 5 foods You Should NEVER Eat
[quote=louisvitton][quote=Diab... There are no foods that you should never eat. If you eat so much of the nutrient devoid foods that it causes you to not get enough nutrients/fiber then you should probably cut back. You have to look at an entire diet, not at one single item.[/quote] Advise is awesome. Sounds goods that you say "Eat whatever we want" But eating in an uneven order show negative impact.[/quote] I don't even understand what you said. You have to eat in a certain order now?

Not loosing fast enough!
Slower weight loss is better for many reasons. You form better habits, you preserve more lean body mass, you slow metabolic adaptations, and the loose skin effect may be less apparent. Quit worrying about the scale so much. Without patience, you risk losing focus and rebounding. Most people relapse, don't be one of those people by being impatient. This is a lifestyle now or it isn't.

What would you tell your 16 year old self?
1. Fat loss comes down to a caloric deficit. 2. Count calories now to avoid having to resort to deprivation diets. 3. Begin resistance training and practice form before going too heavy.

Struggling need some advice
Forget about the scale. Focus on the mirror and how your clothes fit.

Small losses....
Weeks is simply not enough time to know for sure if a diet is working. Normal water weight fluctuations can mask fat loss in such a short amount of time. Come back if it's been at least a month, especially if your profile pic is close to where you are, you don't have much to lose.

Small losses....
Starvation mode is a myth. There has never been proof of it. When calories are controlled(deficit), fat loss is inevitable. 2 lbs. is completely fine in 3 weeks. Given the same caloric intake and protein intake, fat loss will be exactly the same whether your calories come from carbs or fat.

Day 5 of water fasting
You may not be happy with the end results in the mirror. The same person can look much better at a higher weight if that weight is lean mass. Water fasting will lead to much lean mass loss. You can actually end up looking worse. People focus way too much on the scale. Resistance training+small deficit will give you better results.
