It comes down to calories. He is right. If you can't restrict calories without going low carb, then try your best with what you have and go shopping next time. :)

intermittent fasting
I use it sometimes when I know I am going out to eat, but my calorie intake is currently high enough to where I am able to eat ~4 times a day.

Protein Powder
I just get the cheap six star whey isolate from Walmart. French Vanilla or Decadent Chocolate are both tasty. A banana and skim milk really help with the flavor.

Tips for staying on track while dining out
If I have a planned dinner with family, I fast for most of the day. That way, even if I gorge on 2k calories at that meal, I am still well within my calorie limit.

RE: SALT AND WATER RETENTION
Sodium is healthy. I think it is recommended that you have around 2,000 milligrams a day. More if you sweat a lot. I take in over 5,000 per day. It helps with lifting weights and keeps you from cramping up. Also, you should raise sodium intake if you drink a lot of water as it is lost in urine. You must balance sodium intake with potassium to keep healthy in the long term.

The Truth About Avocados
[quote=philmck]I don't cook avocado, and dietary fat isn't a concern if it's not consumed along with foods high in sugar and starch. Sugar and starch are the real issue, the action of the hormone insulin, doing it's job efficiently, removes excess glucose from the blood and converts it to body fat, not the same thing as eating animal or plant fat and storing it as fat. Splicing of hairs? [/quote] Unless in a calorie deficit, right Phil? Fat is more easily converted to fat than carbs are. But if you're in a deficit, it doesn't matter.

Long Term Permannent success is Possible
[quote=delede] Good grief! Is there a Keto/LCHF/IF monopoly on this site?[/quote] Many are biased towards a low carb diet on this particular site. Definitely not the case on larger sites with more knowledgeable members like MFP and bodybuilding.com. Most dieters on those sites are macro/calorie counters and get the same results without depriving themselves of delicious carbs. IIFYM is a popular initialism that stands for "if it fits your macros". Love it.

How to curb late night eating?
Food does not increase metabolism. Eating before bed is no different than any other time of day. It comes down to personal preference.

3 Week Stall
The initial loss in a low carb diet is fluid. Now you have to rely on CICO, like every other diet. You will experience water loss and retention during weight loss which will make it seem like you have stalled. As long as your calorie counting is accurate, you are losing fat, keep it up!

setting calories
I like to stick the the recommendation but I also like to have energy for lifting weights, running, and looking fuller. When I go too low, I can definitely tell when it comes to energy levels. If you feel fine with that intake, stick with it. The only problem that you may run into is that metabolic adaptation may come on sooner and if/when you plateau, you won't be able to go much lower without risking your health.

Daily Calorie Intake
At 306 lbs, 3700 calories would still put you in a deficit. You can definitely be more aggressive though. Try 3k and see how you feel and lower them slowly over time. I'm averaging over 3k and I weigh ~185.

Or if the calories of the avocado take you over your limit. Then the calories are just as wrong as from any other source.

How to curb late night eating?
Try intermittent fasting. If you enjoy eating later in the day, do so, but make sure you stay within your calorie goal.

The Losing and Gaining yo yo
Wait, how am I not fasting when asleep?
by Diablo360x (submitted 2 months ago)
The Losing and Gaining yo yo
Wow, no digestion after just 8 hours? Come on. Like rabbit said, it takes ~40 hours to process food. Also, why isn't it just as easy to have your last meal prior to bed? I personally sleep better after some delicious pre-bed carbs and I get my first 8 hours of fasting while sleeping. Not seeing the advantage he speaks of

A new way to lose weight.
I mean, there are intermittent fasting dieters that save their total allotment of calories to the last 4 hours before bed, yet they lose fat just as well as anyone else. How are they defying this rule? Because this rule is based on a myth.
by Diablo360x (submitted 2 months ago)
A new way to lose weight.
WRONG. Your body does not work that way. My largest meal of the day is before bed. There is no magical time of day where your body converts more of the calories you ingest into fat. If your body burns an average of 14000 calories a week and you eat less than that, you will lose fat, no matter what or when you eat.

I was cleaning out my temp files and I lost all my progress for the month and a half I been on my diet! Is there any way to get it back?

calories burned ?
Check your time that you watched ( really it's the same as sitting) and adjust it according to the time. If you only watched for an hour, it shouldn't be that high.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
What you look like and how your clothes fit you is a far better indicator of how you are doing once you get down to a reasonable weight
