re: Caloric Intake Question
Don’t worry about carbs. It has zero bearing on your rate of fat loss. Calories are what’s important

Interesting. Because that's literally the only thing I count, and its worked just fine for me

quote:

Total

I count net carbs, not total. So total, minus fiber. Typically around 20g-25g a day.

Because you’re inadvertently eating a calorie deficit

So is the ketosis theory false?

"Starve your body of carbs, and it will begin burning fat for fuel rather than carbs"?

It will burn fat for fuel, yes... if you're in a deficit.

Not all calories are equal. Calories are a mix of fat, protein and carbs. Not understanding how to balance the type of calorie you consume is detrimental to good health.

no, but if you are feeding the body with plenty of calories from fat, it will burn that. burn fat doesnt mean bodyfat

and yes calories and protien are all that matters. I suggested low carb because he is more than likely caring a good bit of water weight at that size.

For fat loss, you're right, but I wouldn't advise anyone to do the twinkie diet either.

re: Caloric Intake Question
So I would put it all together from what people have said here.

If you want to get the party started quickly, go Keto. You will drop weight and burn off some fat.

You can Keto for longer that is up too you, but converting over to a healthier eating lifestyle will be easier to maintain. This means less crap food and alcohol. Shop on the edges of the grocery store and stay away from the middle aisles.

Lift weights. We all know muscle burns more calories, so get you some more. Lift at least 4 days a week, drop the cardio/HIIT if you need to. Keep it if you can.

Boost you T-levels, higher T builds muscle. Squats and Sex are your friends.

Do not go low calorie only.

no doubt, but plenty of studies have shown that once you equate for calories and protein, 99% of the "health benefits" come from the fat loss itself.

re: Caloric Intake Question
How the heck do you boost t levels. Just by weights? Take some over the counter crap you see on tv commercials (frank thomas crap).

Or just lift weights? Seriously asking

re: Caloric Intake Question

You can web search the various ways, but some quick ones

1. Lift weights and build muscle. The reason I mentioned squats earlier, you are hitting a lot of big muscles and releasing some T.

2. Get proper sleep and eat healthy. I would ignore the OTC, but that is just me.

3. Sex - seriously this might give you the biggest bump in T. Sex can give you a 200+ point jump. It will not last though if you are not doing 1 and 2 above. The bump would be gone within the week, so you need to do it more than once a week

As you age, it is not going to go back to those 18-29 year levels naturally. There are a few people here that do TRT and they can speak better to the cons and pros.

If you have your regular doctor check T levels, they will probably tell you, you are OK unless you drop into the 100s. If you go to a T-clinic they will tell you under 350 is when you need to boost.

The above information is from paying attention to this board for the past few years, because I have too been curious.

resistance training helps boost test levels

losing body fat helps boost test levels

a very low carb diet has been show to increase test levels about 75 points compared to standard western diet in resistance training males.
