Make sure when you're calculating things like RDI or TDEE that you use a base activity level of as low as you can go (completely sedentary) and use that as the starting point.

Your individual metabolism will not be exactly what you're quoted, so be sure to track week to week to ensure you're heading in the right direction. If you're gaining weight, knock off 700-1000 calories off that estimate. If you're maintaining, knock off 300-500. If you're losing, perfect, don't change a thing.

Do you?
I'm not sure what a high expectation is, exactly. I think I've been doing this long enough that I know exactly what's attainable in what timeframe, and my hopes/expectations are 'realistic'. So medium both maybe. Sustainable weight loss is a product of a complete lifestyle, and to do it properly while preserving lean body mass is a slow endeavour. Likewise, building lean body mass requires the same diligence in the opposite direction. The downside to that one is the diminishing returns (for the non-enhanced).

One pound equals 2500 calories.

I believe it's 3500, though it's not exact.

ieGod...did you see the study was fully funded by The American Beverage Association. Say no more.

I did notice that, which is why I had to point out exactly where it was published. Regardless of where the funding came from, it stood up to critical scientific peer review, and was published in a prestigious scientific journal. They don't tarnish their credibility because of funding sources.

I'm not making the claim that NNS beverages are "nutritious" or "healthy", but the science is sound. If you want to lose weight, adding them into your diet is a more effective route than just drinking water alone.

5k calories yesterday. Badass. I haven't had a cheat day that epic in a while. It's all good, today that's going to fuel a new deadlift PR of 4+ plates. ...
