Net calories (gain weight)
That is a very high surplus. Are you trying to gain a lot of fat?

Can Antibiotics Kill Ketosis
Rapid results when you begin keto is because of the initial water weight loss. You're no longer using glucose so when you lose the glycogen stores, you lose the bound up water that comes with it. Once you're using fat for energy instead, you will not experience any more rapid water weight loss and scale weight will come down to calories as with any other diet. If you stall for more than a couple of weeks, re-evaluate your calorie intake.

Advice for beginning healthy eating for weight loss
All diets are CICO. If a certain way of eating makes your calorie goals easier to stick to then try it.

Amount of calories and exercise to lose weight
When calories and protein are controlled it does not matter what you eat. Fact. Scientific fact! Countless metabolic ward studies Prove it. Now buzz off.

So self-reported intake of food. People went on a restrictive diet and lost weight. How predictable.

Is Fatsecret just for keto dieters?
It's for anyone who wants to be accountable for energy in vs. energy out(which is how bodyweight is lost). It does seem to have a higher concentration of keto dieters compared to other sites.

Recently Eaten and favourite Foods expansion
That's odd, I think the exact opposite which is why I use this site. MFP is slow and laggy in comparison. It shows me my most recent entries and the list is long. You can even copy yesterdays entry completely. Also, the fact that you can enter all at once makes entering food simpler than on MFP.

Just a start
You should stick to science instead of misleading films. It's readily available. https://hoffday.wordpress.com/... That link contains over 30 metabolic ward studies proving that fat loss is totally dependant on calorie intake. Also shows that when calories and protein are the same fat loss was the same whether the rest of your calories came from fat or carbs. Quit basing your nutrition knowledge on a hypothesis and start using actual science.

Water Tracking
Is your pee light yellow? Then you're drinking enough, if not, drink more. Drinking too much is also a thing. I personally feel that people drink too much when beginning a diet. Co-workers going to the restroom once ever 30 min gets annoying.

Amount of calories and exercise to lose weight
[quote=ieGod][quote=Afurakani]... is how you burn body-fat: #1: Devour Food With A Low Glycemic Load! #2: Devour Food With A High Nutrient Density! #3: Devour A Micro-Feast Every 2 to 3 Hours! If you want, I can send you more details on how to do this...[/quote] #1. Has nothing to do with calories. #2. Has everything to do with preference. #3. Is also just a preference. The total thermic effect of food is the same regardless of meal frequency. The most important thing is just calorie deficit. That's it. It's really very simple. Why do we make up excuses and magic approaches?[/quote] Because it doesn't make for exciting headlines. Also, people fail so much by not adhering to that calorie goal(overestimating exercise expenditure and underreporting intake by not weighing portions or omitting items) or sticking to their goal but then don't count on the weekends which causes them to "spin their wheels". I know you know all of this, just posting for any onlookers.

Any shortcuts to figuring out calories?
[quote=FarmerJeannine]Diablo, I agree about the need to weigh stuff out, at least at first - when I first started weighing out ingredients and servings, it was a huge eye opener... I discovered that I'd been "eyeballing" myself into an extra 300-500 calories a day! I'll keep weighing for a bit (I'm a slow learner!), but I'll probably eventually go back to eyeballing once I'm used to seeing what a REAL serving looks like! :)[/quote] Truly an eye-opener. I used to use measuring cups and spoons for things like oatmeal and peanut butter until I began to weigh it. It really is easy to misjudge your daily intake by at least 500 calories which is usually the deficit you want to use for steady fat loss. So not only are you breaking even for the week, you then reward yourself at the end of the week for all your hard work with a cheat meal or even a whole day and then wonder why you aren't losing and in fact gaining weight.

Diet Sodas
I stand corrected, I've never heard of that disease, of course, if one is diagnosed with it, they would already be aware. Healthy individuals who can metabolize it need not worry.

Any shortcuts to figuring out calories?
I don't find it particularly difficult to weigh everything individually. If you prefer to "wing" it, results will not be guaranteed. Maybe take the time to count for a couple months and then you will be better at guestimating.

Diet Sodas
Calling them poison when there is no proof is ok, though? To say that for some it's poison is just weird. So others are immune to this poison? I think that in order to call a certain item poison, an item that has never been known to get someone sick is verging on orthorexia.

Sugar
Same here, I have 2-3 apples and other fruits daily. A good way to have low calorie filling snacks that are rich in nutrients/fiber. An apple that is around 70 calories also takes about ten times longer to eat than a chewy cookie of the same amount of calories. Always smart to have some low-calorie options readily available.

Sugar
I had no idea people put butter in coffee before the "bullet proof coffee" guy came around. Is it good? If it isn't preferred to just using sugar, I don't see the point. If someone prefers the taste and they are ok with downing a large number of calories through a drink, then go for it. I personally think it's a bad idea to drink your calories because it makes it easy to overconsume.

Sugar
Sugar is fine. Forget the butter coffee, just ridiculous.

Diet Sodas
You started the debate with this, "Actually, diet sodas do have a big effect on weight loss, they may cause weight gain because your body still treats it as a sugar. People who drink diet soda are at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease - heart attack and stroke. Drinkers are at increased as well as type 2 diabetes, obesity due to the fact they can trick your body into craving rich, high-calorie foods." Where are you getting that your body treats no calories as calories? How can your body treat no sugar with actual sugar? Sounds like magic. Also, how is someone that drinks diet at higher risk of cardiovascular disease? Correlation does not equal causation. Some people who drink diet are not restricting total calories from their diet, some are obese despite it, it isn't because of it. Also, diet coke takes my cravings away, it doesn't make them worse. Where is your study that states that they increase your cravings? Another empty statement. And then I post an article with 7 references and you come back saying it may be my opinion. Another quote from you. " I drink soda every once in a while. I use small juice glasses for soda and fruit juice, regular size and large glasses for water" But now you say you don't use the product? Make up your mind. The real question is are you kidding me?

The fearmongering is strong in you. I'll continue to enjoy diet beverages in moderation, you can keep living in fear of an unproven boogieman.

If your metabolism slows down as you get older, do you need to do more to lose weight than a younger
The percentage difference between a 20-year-old and 60 is low single digits. The difference comes from inactivity which results in less lean body mass as well. Move more and eat less and you will have similar "gains" no matter your age. It's just an excuse.
