This is scaring me

When you're fasting is it possible for your body to not recognize the fat cells, so you actually starve but your fat remains? What if your body forgets to use the stored energy and fat loss becomes impossible?

    cardio is a big factor in fat utilization and how willing your body is to burn fat. People who say stuff like "just eat less" or "abs are made in the kitchen" are peddling half truths.

      For the average fatass cardio is excruciating and off putting from fitness all together. If you have no muscle to begin with it is much better and easier to just cut calories

              I think there's better ways is all. Lifting for one.

                There is absolutely zero reason why a fatty can’t put in some time on the treadmill. The heavier you are the more calories you burn by simply putting one foot in front of the other.

                lifting burns negligible amounts of calories. You can easily burn more calories per hour walking. It's good for retaining muscle on a deficit but any kind metabolic effect on fat burning is really mild. Just dedicating an hour 30 minutes in the morning and 30 at night can burn around 300-400 kcal. Add another at lunch and you're up to about 500 kcal and 90 minutes of activity. Which is a good baseline if you throw lifting on top of that. If you're just a couch potato that does your measly 200 kcal fullybody workout every other day which you probably overeat for because it's always "muh protein" it's almost as bad as doing nothing at all.

                you have a really shitty understanding of how the human body works. cardio only burns calories while your heart rate remains up. within minutes of stopping your cardio you stop burning calories. lifting on the other hand not only burns calories while you actually do the lift but causes your body to continue burning calories throughout the day while it repairs the damage you did to the muscles. this is crucial to increasing your body's metabolic needs which is where you get real weightloss that can be sustained where as dieting and cardio alone will inevitably end up plateauing your metabolism. this is why so many people start off dieting and doing cardio and lose a decent amount of weight... until it stops working because their body adjusted their metabolic needs to their lowered calorie intake. reversing that process can take months and this is when people fall off their diets and put all the weight back on.

                HIIT has gigantic metabolic after-burn lifting is really miniscule in that department. It's why stuff like p90x has a pretty good track record of getting people thin and things like crossfit but those are so divergent from conventional resistance training they have more in common with cardio than strength training.

                Idk I got a heartbeat tracker that also estimates kcal burned based on your weight and I know the math may not be exact, it's more proof than just saying my lifting only burns 200...
                Time wise, HIIT is king. With one hour of HIIT I'm in the 800 range when I'm taking no breaks besides switching to the next move and redlining it. 600 more normal.
                Pull day is 400.
                Compare that to 3 hours of golf being 1000 and that's walking with a push cart and swinging, more vigorous than just walking.

                yeah hiit is pretty intense but the kicker is it requires rest days or you tend to end up with injuries. So doing 800 kcal every other day is pretty much the same as doing 400 kcal a day. If you're talking about supersetting or circuit training those can be pretty effective but it's hard to do those and get your best quality volume. People have tried to combine cardio and resistance training a lot of different ways like see above which is great if you don't have time for both or are indecisive about what you want out of exercise but I'm firm believe that don't get the best of either by combining them.

                that's circuit training or something else. HIIT is specifically a method of cardio that goes between intervals of 80%+ of max safe heart rate and holding it there for a segment then resting until you're down to 50%-60% of max safe HR then going again. HIIT is for pushing limits on cardio not just getting sweaty and hovering around 60-70%. .

    Yes it's possible. During keto, the body can unlearn how to digest carbs, meaning if you ever eat carbs again you'll be diabetic. Look it up.

            You could have gained a most less than a pound of fat in a week.
            You probably weighed yourself after you ate something in the beginning and weighed yourself when you were dehydrated post-sleep at the end.

              Nah, I always weigh myself before eating and drinking anything in the morning.
              Its probably just lots of water weight after months of cutting (aka stress), but I thought the glycogen gain would’ve made up for it
              Also I hope it wasn’t that much fat, I feel leaner somehow but still

    What you’re asking about is crashing your metabolism and sending your body into starvation mode and the answer is a definite yes. If you aggressively under eat your calorie needs on a prolonged basis the body will shut down its fat burning ability and start metabolizing muscle. The human body doesn’t know that you aren’t a caveman anymore and it thinks fat is very very important and valuable which is why it’s so easy to gain and so hard to lose. The best way to fast is to incorporate It into a routine of regular exercise and weight lifting while eating near your calorie needs. One day of fasting here and there won’t hurt your metabolism unlike the people that attempt crash diets.

    fat isn't just used as energy storage, but also against cold temperatures
    brown fat purpose is to keep organs warm
    don't just diet, expose yourself to chronical cold, and your body will use your fat much more willingly

      Even if this is true (no evidence for it other than hearsay) it's at best a 0.05% difference. Spend your effort on bigger, proven techniques.

    Your body doesn't forget things, your mind does. Not recognizing your cells is called cancer and is a bigger problem than not losing weight.
