how can I boost my metabolism and decrease my body's resistance?
Lower calories and/or increase activity. There is no trick. Weigh all foods and be honest with every bite. It's a simple matter of calories in vs. calories out. No gimmicks, no ridiculous starvation mode.

Any one out there like to work out at 5 am?
Drink water and warm up properly.

Idk what to do =/
I just converted your weight to lbs. 122lbs. is light enough unless you're uder 5 feet. I suggest eating at maintenance and incorporating resistance training to add lean mass. Doing cardio alone can make you just look soft which can be a reason for your body image issues. Resistance training will add shape.

Do some resistance training. Eat at a 500-1000 calorie deficit. Don't exceed that by too much. You need the nutrients.

Exercise
Eating over your alloted carbs is only an issue if those extra carbs make you go over your calorie allowance. http://examine.com/faq/what-sh... Let science rid you of your carb phobia.

Right weight for you body
[quote=wholefoodnut]Diablo, I'm sorry that doesn't makes sense. Your bones do not change if you gain weight, they stay the same size and weight. [/quote] It doesn't make sense for your structure to get denser to support the extra weight? Even without gaining weight people get denser bones. Sprinters vs. walkers, weightlifters vs. couch potatoes. Obese people vs. skinny. Our bones adjust to the new load. Denser=heavier. The 15% rule would not appy if that were not the case. So many armchairs experts. Try searching the internet. "The interesting thing that is substantiated on this quest is heavy people with a BMI over 33 never get Osteoporosis. They have greater bone density. Bone density is increased when you do activities that put stress on the bone structure like weight lifting or in this case carrying around excess weight." You can disagree but science proves you wrong...

Right weight for you body
Ok, let's put it this way, our skeletons are roughly 13-14% of our bodyweight. It does not vary as largely as people believe. 15 lbs. for a 100 lb. person and close to 56 for a 400 lb person. Closer to 30 lbs. for the average overweight person trying to lose weight. In other words, not enough of your weight is determined by your bone structure to make it an excuse for weighing a lot more than someone around the same fat percentage. Eddie, if your weight would be 232 with zero fat, you're probably very heavy. As you lose that weight, you would lose a lot of lean mass as well. In other words, as you got closer to 250 your fat free mass would be under 200 lbs. I mean if that did not happen you would be the largest man who ever lived without using steroids. You would be heavier than Arnold Schwarzeneggar who admitted to steroid use and is 6'2". On a side note, thanks for the compliment. 45 min 5 days a week is a full time job these days. That's awesome.

LOL, we all have a skeletons that weigh roughly the same. You believing that anything but daily habits has to do with our weight and mucle to fat ratios is laughable. Use common sense.

It should be common knowledge now that somatotypes are a myth, eddie1261. https://www.youtube.com/watch?... http://proteinandiron.com/the-... Somatotypes are just another "crutch" that make people believe they cannot reach a certain goal. Anyone can be dangerously skinny or dangerously fat depending on calorie intake. Bodyweight is determined by habits. Weightlifters like myself can look good in the mirror at 200lbs. while the average person who simply loses by walking/jogging may still look very fat at 200. I would always advise someone to do resistance training with progressive overload to build healthy muscle. One large benefit is being heavier which allows more calories while maintaining a healthy bodyfat percentage.

Daily allotment vrs calories burned per day
No, it's sets a "hard" amount and your daily activities determine if your weight loss is faster or slower. You can add more calories in on your own. It does calculate your daily surplus/deficit for you.
by Diablo360x (submitted a month ago)
fat intake
40-80 grams. No need to stress too much. Attempt to avoid the transfats.

1600 calorie diet
Like mummy said, even Dr. Oz has been debunked. Taubes is next, next year when Alan Aragon tears him apart. Eat what you like in moderation while still attempting to get your vitamins and fiber.

Daily allowance?
lol, 2600 enough for an NFL lineman?! At my current bodyweight of 200lbs. with a deskjob and only 45 min of lifting weights I burn around 3200 a day. I averaged more than 2600 calories last month and lost 4 lbs of fat. An NFL lineman would need at least twice that many calories to avoid losing weight. Please don't act as if you're giving facts when you're new and confused.

Daily allowance?
How do you know 2600 is too much? What is your weight?

I am really confused with the Net Carbs Counting
What eddie said. There is no certain number of carbs you need to eat to lose fat, it is a matter of calories. Put an emphasis on vitamins, fiber and protein and eat what you like while remaining in a calorie deficit.
by Diablo360x (submitted a month ago)
calorie counting
eddie, you're on the other side of the fence imo. Changing too much too fast is a recipe for failure. Maybe a select few can do it and stick to it but most cannot. Nothing wrong with having what you like in moderation. If that cannot be done, then yes, it's best to outright avoid it most of the time.

calorie counting
Keep doing what you're doing just reduce calories. More emphasis on protein.

How can I help my overweight fiance lose weight?
Counting calories while allowing the foods he enjoys in moderation. If he cannot control himself around cake it should be a rare indulgence.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I've read that weighing yourself every day can be harmful to the brain, making you seemed stress over it, i would maybe once or twice a week.

It is too late to migrate all my data to another tool. Can you set up the tool so that we can simply add the number of calories per day instead of having to enter the food again?
