Can I get away with eating a big 1000 calorie dinner and still lose weight if my other two meals before hand were like 500 each? That would leave me in the 2000 calorie zone, so I would still lose weight, right.
>>
if you burn more than 2000 yes, FUCKING MATH MAN, post age, sex, height, and weight and I'll do the math for you.

Yes, eating at a caloric deficit will cause you to lose weight, and at that weight, 2000 calories a day is definitely eating at a deficit
>>
>>35659333
If I was your weight I wouldn't consider having a cheat meal desu familia
>>
>>35659552
Already tried the clean eating route many times and failed every time. I realize I can't just give up the food I like and expect to have the willpower to not eat.

If you're fucking 6'7" you aren't as fat as someone at a similar weight whose 5'8" that dude is like a midget compared to you christ

you burn 3700 calories a day without exercise, so ya eat all the shit you want but keep it under 3500.
>>
>>35659646
weak ass shit, i used to be overweight and still have fat friends. i had the will and they didnt. they kept failing and are still fat while i dropped 90 lbs
>>
>>35659646

Just don't buy the food? Eventually urged to eat shit will go away.
>>
>>35659737
So if he eats exactly 2000 calories every day, with no exercise, he should lose approximately 12 lbs a month. Assuming he maintains that deficit, and his target weight is about 140 for a 5'8 man, it would take him 20 months, or 1 year 8 months of not cheating his diet.

You're fucked OP.
>>
>>35659801
Realistically, you can't maintain a 1700 calorie deficit once you get down to 200 or so. So he's looking at at least 3 years of dieting alone, or less if he gets his lazy ass of the couch.

Still fucked though.
>>
>>35659801

65kg for a 5"8 man? 70-80 sounds more reasonable and it's not that big, 65kg is pretty low
>>
>>35659712
I'm still fat though but doing what I can to not be fat and other things too.
>>
>>35659844
Just going off my own target. At 6'0" just above underweight would be 170. Of course, that's taken from BMI, so it is skelly normal, not joocy normal.
>>
>>35659868

apart from reading the sticky

>EAT LESS
>EXERCISE MORE

It's a pretty simple approach.
>>
>>35659284
no you have to eat small meals throughout the day to keep your metabolism going.
>>
>>35659689
you're a big guy
>>
>>35659900
Pretty much what I'm doing.
Quitting fast food has been a bitch.
Also am now walking 3-5 miles every other day.

For you
>>
>>35660174
Focus more on your time versus the distance, even though your distance is commendable.
Try walking for two hours a day. That will help a great deal.
>>

Okay, thanks for the advise.

wew lad. You can have more than 2k to lose weight. I'd set a limit at 2500. And get protein/meal replacement shakes for breakfast. then an apple/banana/orange/whatever between breakfast and lunch. Decent 700-800 lunch. Snack on some sakatas/rice cakes/pork crackles/nuts/fruit until dinner. Then a 800cal dinner as well. This will satisfy you. If you are cooking at home, get some scales and do it properly. You can't eye off calories properly at your fat level.

And dont drink anything but water(and your protein brekky). It is empty calories and drinking other shit means you have to eat less.

Also, eat a ton of chicken. It is great meat that isn't overly expensive and there is so much variety in the taste that you can eat it twice a day and not get bored(I do this). Have a fuckton of veggies with your meals. You can get prepackaged, 2 serve mixed veggies from your supermarket. Add 2 of those to any meal and it is only something like 100calories. But it is 4 serves of veggies and will temporarily fill you up, enough to get you into bed without feeling hungry again.

Throw out your junk food. Sitting in the kitchen is horrible for cravings.

I am on the same journey as you, although my road isn't quite as large, but I've started the hike. JUST DO IT.

Pls do math for me if I wanna cut
>>
>>35662645
There are online calculators for that lad just go find one and go 500 calories underneath.

However why are you cutting at that weight/height ? Competing ? long distance runner? Or just want abs above all else?

Because honestly seen some 170-173 manlets on here that are 80-84 kgs natty and lowish bf (13-14% abs obviously visible), mind you they have been lifiting for 4-5 years.
>>
>>35662660
I'll look them up, just lazy, thanks. Been lifting for about 4 years now, only last two years were seriously and dedicated however. Got a decent amount of muscle, enough for people to be impressed/notice, but the two lower abs are still being tricky and not showing without expectional perfect lightning. I'm mostly in it for the looks even though my gf says she's content and would like for me to stop lifting.
But I lift for myself so fuck that
>>
>>35662734

she wants you to stop lifting because you being fit and her feeling lazy is an insecurity.
>>
>>35662807
Yeah she basically told me the same thing. Still lifting of course, rather trying to get her to join me
>>
>>35659844
70-80 is still pretty big for 5'8 if you have no muscle mass, 80 is definitely still overweight
>>
>>35659284
>2000 kcal
>loose weight

i stay at 1400kcal and i still loose weight pretty slow
>>
>>35659284
>>35663628
Dont listen to this faggot, cut on 2000 kcal intake and lost 8 kgs in 2 months
>>
>>35663628
Do you even move in your daily life? 1400Kcal is nothing
>>
>>35663641
outside of gym 2-3 times a week i don't move that much.

calculators say my TDEE is like 2200kcal
>>
>>35663653
Work out more, be more active and eat more
>>
>>35663628

Probably because you're fucking starving.
>>
Well I just learned that protein shakes make me so damn gassy.
I'm sorry Planet Fitness for farting so badly on your treadmills and making that woman throw up.
