Examine.com is the one stop shop for all you need to know in my opinion. Scientific references up the wazoo. I also use the losing fat and nutrition forums of bodybuilding.com. The "stickies" are priceless.

Before and After, anyone?
[quote=NowIunderstand]First time I've seen this thread! Wow, to all of you. A nice touch would be to write what diet plan you followed, no? Thanks for taking the time and energy to share and inspire. Can't wait to post mine. I've got a lifetime of before pixs, but none of after :(. this time will be different. [/quote] I consumed less calories than I burned. Low calorie foods at my disposal(apples, bananas, greek yogurts). Weigh almost all foods consumed. If I did not have access to scale I would estimate high to avoid having a surplus in calories. For pizza for example, I'd put it down as 1.2 servings even if I only had one slice, etc,. Oops, forgot to mention I use intermittent fasting. I don't have breakfast until much later in the day. So for example I wake at 4pm, my first meal would not be until close to midnight.

[quote=krystynecar]Many overweight individuals fail to lose weight with dieting. While it is always assumed they are doing a poor job of dieting, it has been shown, however, that chronic dieting in overweight individuals results in increased levels of NEFA, which suppresses T4 uptake into the cells (3). This suppressed T4 uptake results in reduced intracellular T4 levels and subsequent T4 to T3 conversion and a reduced metabolism [/quote] So, their metabolism is slower. They still have a daily expenditure. You have to find that number and eat below it or have a combination of moving more and eating less to create a deficit. I have never claimed that some people don't have a slower metabolism....

Again, why do some of you believe that certain foods cause your metabolism to slow to a crawl? It's either that, or like I said before, certain foods are somehow creating extra calories. It's either one or the other. We need to send simple carbs over seas to starving populations stat since it will cause them to gain life saving fat even in a deficit.

[quote=krystynecar]However I also think that you have no idea what it is like to be obese. EVERYTHING changes - I can tell you this because I am a former competitive athlete! First figure skating - then windsurfing when things are working you can eat almost anything with in moderation - once you become obese the rules change. The latest research is actually looking at obesity as a fat storage disorder (there are some people out there who are very fat on one part of their body often the legs and very thin on another part of their body - the upper body - you can't be fat and skinny at the same time if it is all calories in and out!) When systems get out of whack is it not so simple any more! I personally am at a clinic for metabolic disorders. I have kept my calorie count between 900-1200 for 5 weeks, I work out EVERY day - rotating through the bike, yoga, and weight lifting - I also walk between 10,000 - 15,000 steps a day - yet I'm not losing - want to explain that for me?[/quote] Can you tell me where on your fat secret you averaged that many calories? Did you weigh and enter all foods 24/7? Water weight can easily mask weight loss especially in as little as 5 weeks. Since you have a range of 900-1200 I'm guessing that you did not give me your average, you can easily make up for that kind of deficit by not counting on the weekends. As far as being obese, it only takes being over weight by 40lbs to be obese so I reach that level yearly. I have friends who are obese and lose weight that is pinpoint accurate with their deficit while eating pizza, donuts, etc, daily.

It's too bad that most of you are too scared to join a website where thousands upon thousands go to reach their goals and are given advice by people who make it their life to learn the ins and outs of fat loss. You may learn something if you break out of this bubble. As far as being insulting, I'm pretty sure I'm not the one calling you retards or cursing and using caps because you cannot have an adult conversation.

As we age, metabolisms slows a bit but a caloric deficit is a caloric deficit. Believing that certain foods can create extra calories from thin air is what we are arguing and it's just nonsense. Some people just need to believe that they are different in some way. But in believing that, they are believing that the law of thermodynamics does not apply to them. I've said my piece, done here, I don't want to make people blow up and begin using caps anymore.

Yes, unless you have some sort of disease, macronutrients are digested in the same manner in all of us.

The biggest reason people believe carbs matter is because they rely too much on the scale. The higher the percentage of your calories come from carbs the more you fill your glycogen stores. You retain water which of course shows up on the scale. It's not fat you're gaining, it is not affecting your fat loss, but it can have an affect on your mind. People like me know exactly whats going on and trust in the calorie count. We don't freak out, we just keep trucking and we judge ourselves more on what the mirror shows over the scale. One good example in the last week for me, my love handles have all but disappeared yet I weigh 3-4 more lbs. than I did a week ago. I know for a fact that my fat mass has gone down and my lean mass(intramuscular water weight) has gone up.

[quote=HCB]I agree with jmb3450! I know the bodybuilders like to talk about calories in vs. calories out - but we are all different with our responses to sugar/insulin. Metabolisms differ, too. I do poorly with starch, breads, white refined flours, etc. Diablo360x - try reading Gary Taubes book - "Good Calories, Bad Calories" - it is quite informative.[/quote] Taubes is laughed at in the community that follows the actual science behind nutrition. His book is all anecdotes with no real science to back his views. I'm sorry that you believe in his theories. Oh well, make it all harder than it needs to be and keep believing you're a special kind of human. :( Alan Aragon handed Taubes his ***. Taubes had nothing to refute Aragon's science besides "have you read my book?" Taubes is a smart guy and I'm sure he knows now that science has debunked him that he is wrong but to go back on it all would be career suicide. His books should be buried along with any other "bro-science".

Nah, carbs are carbs jmb3450. Now, it is true that if your carbs are really high you may retain more water weight, but that will have nothing to do with fat mass. Rely on the mirror more OP.

Yes, the ones being digested are not part of your energy store yet. :)

Can i lose 20kg (44lbs) i 2.5 months?
That supplement will do zip. You need to create a large calorie deficit over time to lose all that weight. 154,000 calories equals 44lbs. That would require over 2,000 calorie daily deficit over 75 days. It's possible but very difficult. I'd settle for around 25lbs. That would require a 1166 calorie daily deficit which is more doable and still a difficult number to average. Good luck.

need to drop weight fast.
You're still growing, please don't restrict yourself too much. Increase your activity and you should see a change. Be patient.

Calories IN versus Calories Out
To answer your question, any and all calories are absorbed no matter what the food is, a human body can digest and use up to 20+ thousand calories a day. So unless you're going for a world record, you don't have to worry about wasting calories because you ate too much, lol.

Calories IN versus Calories Out
I don't remember the exact percentages for each macronutrient but your body burns a certain percentage of the calories ingested digesting food. Your body does not see candy vs. a potatoe when it comes to this. It sees carbs vs. carbs. Protein has the highest thermic effect. In a mixed diet you can expect about 10% of total calories ingested to go towards digestion.
