TROUBLE - need suggestions
Meal frequency does not matter unless it helps you personally. I guess by clean you mean nutritious food? I personally enjoy fruit but if you cannot get enough calories like NCNOLE advised nuts are calorie dense.

What is the one thing you miss most while dieting?
What gnat said. Having to eat less is about it.

RDI's
I was talking about this week. You did not lose 7lbs. of fat unless you created a 24,500 calorie deficit this last week. That would put you at a daily deficit of 3500. That would go against your advice. Good job on the weight loss but eating every 2-3 hours and making sure you did not go below a certain percentage of calories did not give you a metabolic advantage, it was simply your personal preference.

RDI's
[quote=Danyellehawkins]When I was 30 pounds heavier than I am now, I was eating about 300-400 calories less. I only started losing weight after increasing my calories and reducing the time spent between meals. I now eat every 2-3 hours. 2-300 calories each time. Everyone is different, but if you underfeed your body, your metabolism will eventually slow to an expected amount of calories. if you only eat 1,000- 1,200 calories a day, your body will expect that from you. It will adjust the amount it lets you expend from stored fats accordingly. If you alternate between 80% of RDI one day to 100% the next I don't think something like that would have a detrimental effect. This week I decided I was going to eat 95-100% of my RDI (which I set 300 cals lower than fatsecret recommended) and meeting those calories, I have lost around 7 pounds this week. [/quote] Old data, nothing that you said is backed by science. You lost mostly waterweight this week. Thanks.

No problem. Just remain in a consistent calorie deficit. Don't worry about slipping up, just get back on the wagon ASAP. :)

Starvation mode is a myth for the large majority of people. The only people needing to worry about it are competitive bodybuilders who get down to dangerously low body fat percentages and relatively lean people in a HUGE calorie deficit for an extended period of time.

20lbs. is 70,000 calories. You would need a 2,333 deficit per day give or take depending on if you're already in "the thick of it" or not. For example if you're going from eating at maintenance or a surplus 20lbs. would be more doable because 5 or more lbs. of it would be water weight which would reduce the needed deficit by 17,500 or so. I do agree that the mirror and tape measure are much better indicators of progress. Just go with that. Btw, There is no reason to eat 5 times a day unless that is what you prefer.

3 Top Methods to Lose Fat
If we are going to talk about the most effective way to shape the body it goes in this order. Resistance training>>HIIT>>LISS in my opinion. Of course it would come down to the individual, I am just going by my tastes. Deep squats for the win.

I was talking to shmiller since she is an endurance athlete. Do you like eating 5 times a day?

3 Top Methods to Lose Fat
http://www.precisionnutrition.... Fasting can help with restricting calories but low carb diets offer no metabolic advantage. If anything they may hinder progress.

No reason to over do it. You don't want to be too sore to workout tomorrow. It's easier to create a calorie deficit by eating less than it is by doing exercise. Baby steps.

Intermittent fasting
A FEW PEOPLE DO BEST WITH HIGH CARBS. About 2.5% of the population — people who are ultra-endurance athletes, and a few other outliers — will thrive when eating incredibly high amounts of carbs. (We’re talking ≥ 70% of their total calories). Great article for anyone afraid of carbs especially. http://www.precisionnutrition....

The hyperbole! Eat up, only the calories that make you go over your daily expenditure will make you gain fat. Selling poison disguised as food is not legal, please do not listen to the fear mongering....

Intermittent fasting
[quote=shmiller]I've been doing weekly 24 hour fasts for about 6 months and love the results, surprisingly. I'm considering moving to the daily fast with the "eating window," though, now that I'm training pretty hard for a half-marathon. I know this article advocates the "hard" workout at the end of the feeding window, but that's impossible for me. I have to workout in the morning. Any experienced IF-ers have thoughts on this? Is it okay to do my workouts (largely running {3 short and one long per week}, strength training, and cycling) first thing in the morning and not eat until noon? Am I going to do muscle damage (not the good kind) by not supplying proteins before and after a workout? [/quote] I am no expert on endurance training but I have read that the important thing is getting enough carbohydrates when you're an endurance athlete. 60-70% or more of your calories should come from carbs to support the workload. I personally workout fasted and do not notice any difference but I also do not go longer than 1.5 hours. Reference the original post, I do IF and I love it. I don't know if it offers any kind of fat burning advantage, I just know it makes it easier to maintain a calorie deficit. It is easier to have 2k calories a day when you only have half as long.

1300 calorie diet, daily exercise and no weight loss
Thanks for the support people. I think we are on a different pages people. I am not here to be your health doctor, I am here to abolish the myths that gaining or losing weight is not 100% dependent on CICO. It certainly is, now if you need to avoid certain foods due to health reasons, then by all means, do that but please do not put words into my mouth. Like I said before, I am not here to tell people what to eat or to be their doctor. Get checked out, make sure you do not have any diseases and go from there....

1300 calorie diet, daily exercise and no weight loss
[quote=northernmusician]Diablo... I know you're trying to help, but not everyone here is a bodybuilder. I understand where you're coming from. Those of us who have stripped the weight off tend to be insulin sensitive, meaning our system does what it's supposed to do and deals with any carb successfully. For those who are overweight, the tendency is that that are insulin resistant to some degree, which means the more starches they have in their diet the harder their body has to work to deal with it. Lean, fit people process food differently. Everyone is on a continuum. If the type of carb makes no difference, then there should be no such thing as diabetes or hypoglycemia. Not trying to give you a hard time. It's just that sometime we forget where we came from and how long it took to gain an understanding. We need to make a simple comment and then give people a chance to learn without being argumentative.[/quote] Can you explain what insulin sensitivity has to do with fat loss/gain? It's up to the individual which foods to avoid if it makes them over eat. Bottom line, you cannot gain weight in a calorie deficit or lose in a calorie surplus. I'm not telling people what they should eat, just doing my part to stop the misinformation. Just because one person enjoys resistance training does not make energy in vs. energy out work differently. No matter what activities you engage in, you must adhere to a calorie intake depending on your goal.

1300 calorie diet, daily exercise and no weight loss
Just so everyone is clear, I am not here to be a pain, I was also against all of this info until I tried it for myself. Been dieting since 99' and the last 2 years have been the easiest yet. Just trying to spread joy, lol. I thanked the guy I initially argued with for essentially changing my life. Sorry if it sounds hyperbolic but I went from eating 5-8 meals a day of chicken and spinach, protein shakes, etc, to eating what I want in moderation in 2-3 meals.

1300 calorie diet, daily exercise and no weight loss
This forum is the definitive forum on nutrition and fat loss. The fact that you're not a bodybuilder is irrelevant. They use the most up to date info grounded in science. This is a "sticky" on their website. http://forum.bodybuilding.com/... They suggest 2-3 carbs per pound of bodyweight. Why would they do that if carbs are fattening? Oh yeah, because that is a myth. Bodybuilder's goals are to get lean and they use the most efficient methods, they do not suggest restricting carbs.
