Unless you're an aspiring competitive bodybuilder or fitness model no need to major in the minors. The major thing to watch are calories. Get your foods full of vitamins, get some fiber and try to focus on protein. Resistance training is recommended if you want a favorable body composition. Good luck.

9 Common Lies About Intermittent Fasting
It's just another method of helping people achieve a calorie deficit. Low carb diets are another, at the end of the day it's all about CICO. Find the right diet for you. I personally enjoy IF and IIFYM.

Water Fast
So a little over 2 lbs of fat and possibly some lean mass and a lot of water weight. A moderate deficit plus resistance training and a good amount of protein would serve you better in the long run.

Stop the Madness
[quote=Annemieke55]I am on a strict diet, Ketogenic.. it is not a low cal diet, but if I ate what I wanted I would gain weight, everyone is different. Sugar and carbs is what makes me fat. My children are the same, as soon as they eat bread, rice oats, sugar, spuds, they gain weight.[/quote] Fat loss does not require low calorie but it does require a calorie deficit. If you could remain in a deficit while consuming sugar, you would continue to lose fat. Going from low carb to a normal carb intake would have you gain weight in the form of glucose/water. If you cannot control calories while incorporating carbs, stick to keto.

calories burned
I think resting is laying down but being awake. When you are sitting your core is engaged to keep you upright.

I don't know what I am doing wrong
I was stalled for months despite a heavy deficit. For me, it's the fact that I am gaining muscle back, retaining water in healing muscles, and the fact that your body will replace fat lipids with water temporarily. It can all mess with your head, even if you know what is happening. Eventually you will get a "woosh". Keep up the good work!

HELP Night hunger
I have the same issue. I have to save calories so that I can have something large before bed.

14 Day Egg Diet
When you know that fat loss is all CICO, why would you subject yourself to such a terrible diet? Any diet that has you eating 200-500 calories a day will cause rapid fat loss. You will also feel like crap. Pick something you can stick to for life. Also, organic is just a buzzword that allows people to sell you something at a premium price, it offers zero advantage.

Calories and sodium
If you still want to have sodium, just raise your potassium intake. As you lose weight, your blood pressure will also reduce.

? for you
Counted calories, used a food scale to improve accuracy. Made sure to be thorough and counted 24/7. Raised my daily burn by just being more active. If I am sitting at a cpu for a while I take breaks and do some pushups/pullups. Still having daily "treats" to have something to look forward to diet-wise. Part of the joy of life is food so cutting out my favorites is just not happening, especially when I know that CICO are what matter.

My RDI is 3100 calories per day - that seems high
It has always been accurate for me but that may be because of lean body mass. The reason it is high for you is that you're heavy, the larger of a person you are, the more calories you need to sustain that weight, which is why it is easy to lose fat when you start off. If you lower your intake to 2500 instead, you will lose another lb. per week. Good luck!

atkins bars
Unless they are getting in the way of your protein goals and/or causing you to overeat calories, it doesn't matter. Rest easy.

A week in...Low carb and no sugar
It needs to be a life long change. Can you see yourself doing low carb for life? If not, try counting calories instead.

Crazy Diet Fads
Low carb was a fad for me. Sure, it works, but only because it made so many tasty and easy foods to eat, off limits, thus, lowering overall calorie intake. Never again.

Fat bloke at a PC
Good advice in here. You can't go wrong if you're counting all calories. I suggest getting a food scale. They are pretty cheap and help immensely with the accuracy.

What does (*only some food) mean?
People on diets under report intake a lot of the time. Clicking the "this is exactly what I ate" is kind of like confirmation that you carefully entered exactly what you ate.

Weight Watcher Points
WW is another way to count calories. Like abba said they are approx 50 calories a point. So I guess multiply your point allotment by 50 and you'll have your calorie total.

Water retention
You are probably experiencing hyponatremia. "Hyponatremia can lead to fluid retention after exercise, so consume enough sodium while you exercise. The condition can also be quite dangerous, leading to pressure on your brain from excess blood volume in your brain capillaries, causing death if not treated quickly." Sodium is very important in functioning muscles. Unless your doctor advises you to lower your sodium intake there is no reason to avoid it. Be reasonable of course but you need sodium especially if you're working out.

Macro Ratios for effective weight loss
Macronutrient Intake Ensure that your intake of macronutrients meets sufficiency (as defined below), with remaining macronutrient composition of the diet being largely a function of personal preference. Protein minimum: ~0.8 grams per pound of bodyweight (or target/ideal weight in the obese). (0.6 gram protein per lb is a good minimum for many general lifters at maintenance or surplus calories, for optimal body building purposes and during energy deficit 0.8 gram per lb likely provides some additional benefits.) Fat minimum: ~0.4 grams per pound of bodyweight (or target/ideal weight in the obese). Remaining caloric budget: whatever mix of macronutrients you prefer and/or allows you to perform and feel well. Some people do better on a higher carb intakes while other people do better on moderate or lower carb intakes. It is not necessary to set a specific numbers for each macro, what matters is that the total calories, minimum fat and protein are achieved.

I find cider vinegar tough to drink with just water. I put a tablesppon of cider vinegar with a skimpy tablespoon of honey and add 7 oz hot water for soothing drink.
