I know you can't target fat loss from your belly

I know you can't target fat loss from your belly

I know it's a reduction of calories which equates to reduction of overall body fat

I am currently eating around 2200 calories and with weight training and cardio Im not seeing any reduction in body fat. I've actually gained some muscle so I'm a couple lbs heavier than when I started.

I get 10,000 steps a day and recently started doing sprinting along with that because I heard that helps reduce body fat

I feel like if I lower my calories again I'm not going to be able to do the workouts

How do you effectively lose body fat? Am I just supposed to starve myself and eat next to nothing? There's gotta be a better way to do this.

    Well if you ate 2200 cals a day and after your exercise you’ve burned maybe 200-400? I jog for 10 minutes on incline 5 on my treadmill and it tells me that I burned 83 calories although that’s probably not accurate.

    The point is if you’re eating that much, how you lose weight depends on how hard you worked everyday. How much cardio did you do? What intensity? How long? How many reps, sets? etc.

    People tend to over-estimate their calories, so you could’ve probably continually consumed 2400+ easily

      I do incline treadmill and walk for a half hour before I lift weights.
      Once I'm done I do another 45 mins to an hour on the treadmill again
      I'm burning anywhere from 900-1200 calories at the gym and I'm always hungry and tired

        I think 900-1200 is overestimation. I did some very quick google searches and it stated
        >155 pound person walking for half an hour at 4mph burns 167 calories
        >a “moderate” weightlifting workout burns 110 calories in 30 mins
        >a “vigorous” weightlifting workout burns 447 calories in one hour

        Now I don’t know what they mean by “vigorous” and “moderate” since I can’t be bothered gathering what weights, how many reps, what muscle groups etc. are being worked out but by using those examples above, there’s no way you’re burning 900-1200 calories unless you workout for like six hours or something

    train 6 days a week. do 20 min jump rope warmup before weights. increase cardio to 1-1.5 hours and reduce calories to 1500. guaranteed you will start to lose weight.

    Can't tell if this is bait or you're legitimately moronic.

    If you want to lose fat quickly, you have to lose weight. So, you have to eat less or move more. If you're gaining weight you aren't even eating maintenance, which means you likely need to cut another 500kCal a day to actually have meaningful weight loss. That would be 1700, which would make you a mallet or a woman. Which means a surprise third option:

    You fricking suck at counting calories. You need to actually weigh your food, not estimate, because you're shite at it. If you're 6'1" and >200lbs, I don't believe your TDEE is under 2000, so you can't be gaining weight at 2200.

    Eat less, fatass. Or understand that body recompisition without overall weightloss will take a very long time.

    Bros is the 2100 calories for cutting being a fat tier and that 1800 is a must a meme or not? I’ve been cutting for almost a month and I’m eating 2220 per day and I’ve lost weight but at a very slow rate but I’m deadly afraid to go under 2k, I feel I will die and will not be able to workout. I’m I being a pussy? I mean we are men don’t we need food? Im 176cm and 75kg

      Topjej. Unironically you would gain so much from rolling 48 hour fasts. Would SHED weight and more importantly allow you to re-evaluate the relationship you currently have with food. You've got nothing to be afraid of, bro, just don't eat.

        Nah fasting is another extreme and is starvation at the end of the day. I’m not fatty and have been at 10% bf most of the time until early 2023. I know what being lean feels like and I was always the kind of person to eat a lot but burn it afterwards. Right now tho ngl I fell off and I’m must be around 17%. Already on the grind and will get back as soon as possible but I believe I can develop better relationship with food without starving for 50 hours. I’ll try going 1800 for a week or two and if that doesn’t work fine I’ll try your omad shit

          You're a moron. >We didn't have access to food non-stop to gorge >ourselves like fatc**ts, mate, fasting is perfectly natural. In fact it's much more natural than stuffing your face like such a fatty boomsticks you're terrified of eating 300 calories less a day (lol). But (You) do (You), tbh, and I wish you luck irregardless of whatever way you go.

      Moron, you should be eating as many calories as are needed to sustain your target weight and your body will just fix itself, all you have to do is stick with it, never eat more and never eat less, eat same amount everyday and work out same amount every week, the only change you should be doing is intensity of workouts at your peak, as you get older you will have to slow down but that's it.

    Low dose GH (3 IU a day) and 1.5g Semaglutide a week will get you there. I'd cruise on test as well but that's just me.

        Great way to make yourself miserable and hungry all the time and not even give your body the nourishment it desires most. Also leads to muscle loss not fat loss.

    Damn dude you almost had quints. Nt gl next time.

    Btw i'm doing the same shit you're doing: lifting heavy, 10k steps a day, etc, except i'm only eating between 1,300 and 1,500 calories a day but with a frickton of protein. I sometimes get tired throughout the day but when I lift I still lift heavy and don't burnout.

    But i'm 5'9'' 182 lbs, 22% bf, so it might be different depending on your stats.

    I'm never letting myself go again.

    By far the most effective and evolutionarily consistent way to lose bodyfat is to fast until it is eliminated. This is way faster, easier, and comes with a large array of benefits than simply attempting to cut calories is. You've got plenty of fat anon. Just stop eating until it's mostly gone then re-focus on building muscle after that.

    Cut down on most of the carbs and increase fat intake. You won't be able to go 100% intensity (you shouldn't be trying to weightlift for weightloss anyway) but it makes losing fat way easier. After you lose the fat, add back in the carbs and weightlifting to gain muscle.

    You're not counting calories properly. Get a scale and weigh your food. Then food prep if you have to.

    I have a crazy workout routine and it's impossible to "outrun" calories. I can easily over eat every day if I don't weigh my food.
