        I walk 50miles a week, I eat ~1700cal a day, yet I am still a lardass.

        with calorie expenditure calculators, it's an estimation, meaning that it's an average based on the average metabolism. if you're just starting out, your metabolism is in conservation mode meaning that you won't burn that many calories just starting out. your metabolic rate will steadily increase until its working to keep your body full of energy to prepare for any unexpected energy needs, and ends up using more fat to reach this energy quota. gaining muscle will also demand more energy from the body and increase the amount of kal you require to keep yourself running in top form.

        this means doing strength training will help immensely with your weight loss goals from walking; especially if you train the leg muscles. the more important thing is to not give up and continue to follow through and adapt your routine to meet your weight loss goals.

        the craziest part is that you might be losing weight/fat, and not notice on your own. you gain muscle in the beginning and that will add weight to you, but continue working out, people will notice and tell you you've lost weight. our minds are powerful things and will always see ourselves as fat even though you're not as fat as you were a month into your routine. that's why people recommend taking progress photos anon.

        you got this.

          Might have been the best advice I’ve seen on here. I’ve got 30 to loose to get back to where i was at my peak running 5 miles a day and stonk. I see myself like shit but in videos i am shocked how different i look.

          The TDEE from muscle is only something like 6kcal per pound of muscle per day.
          So if you gain 10lbs of muscle you can eat 1 extra slice of wheat bread (60kcal) a day and not get fatter.

            in the end it really does come down to diet. as long as you're hitting your macros and adjusting your calorie intake as you lose weight, your body wont freak out and enter a starvation mode, and begin storing fat while cannibalizing your muscles.

            then after that, its all about making proper eating choices to maintain the body weight/physique you want to keep. your body will be adjusted to exercise and proper food intake/portion sizes after a while, and it'll be easier for it to tell you what it requires to function. maintenance of it will become second nature.

          This too. Adding strength work too turn your exercise into more of a recomposition than a "cut" will make a world of difference. Having muscle mass increases your basal metabolic rate which basically is just how many calories you burn when you're sitting around. It will accelerate your fat loss for sure

          's "medical" diagnosis to heart, there is absolutely no reason to assume a "metabolic imbalance" based on having a fat gut. Men tend to deposit fat in between their organs in their torso ("visceral fat") while women tend to deposit it more uniformly around their body just under the skin. But it really depends on genetics how each of us distributes our fat deposits exactly. If you've had routine bloodwork done and your doc hasn't noticed anything out of the ordinary like thyroid hormones or cortisol levels, you won't have to worry about hypothyroidism or cushings disease or anything like that which

            We're talking about someone who is exercising and clearly at a calorie deficit and still struggling. Unless OP is lying, there's clearly something wrong. See

            There's so many possible causes and I'm not a doctor, so I'm hesitant to say. You'll get a few retards posting their meme answers if you say this, but here are a few possibilities:

            1. Your diet. Onions gets blamed a lot. Not sure if the "Onions" filter is still on. If it is, let's called it rapeseed. But yeah, move that out of your diet if you have any.

            2. A condition of some sort. Thyroid is often the culprit here. Ever hear the meme about fat people saying they have a metabolic problem? Yeah, they're lying, but that issue does exist and what you have looks a lot like it. You'd need a doctor to look it up however.

            3. Environmental toxicity. This would mean that some toxin in the environment is getting into your system and fucking up your metabolism. This is the least likely option, but it's happened to people before.

            4. If it's none of these, you might just have unlucky genes. In that case, I strongly recommend switching from walking to lifting. It won't make the fat go away, but the added muscle mass on your shoulders, arms and chest will make you look more aesthetic.

            Wish you luck. And don't listen to the memers who will rave about masturbation and religion and garden gnomes.

            It's not necessarily metabolic, but it's definitely worth investigating. And OP,

            Take iodine. You might have a hypoactive thyroid. Was in the same boat till about 2 weeks ago. Now I've been loosing weight at a steady rate.

            is exactly the sort of meme shit you shouldn't do. Go see a fucking doctor first. And you should notice that everyone, regardless of their opinion, is telling you to lift more. That is probably a sign that it's good advice.

        Are you sure you are measuring everything correctly? Sauces, dips, and dressings are commonly overlooked.
        Could be you are not physically exerting yourself. As in walking< running, I notice faster weight loss from running.
        Also, smart watches and other similar exercise trackers lie. They overestimate calories burned, distances traveled, and other minor stuff. Do not blindly believe what they tell you.

      1700 calories with walking 50 miles a week is NOT overeating, I'm sure you mean well but you are giving bad advice. 1700 calories is plenty a deficit if you're not exercising, but with exercise you need to eat more

      https://i.imgur.com/GyhX9bP.jpg

      I walk 50miles a week, I eat ~1700cal a day, yet I am still a lardass.

      I forgot to mention in

      Congrats on the work. First, how tall are you? 1700cal seems too low and that can paradoxically stall your weight loss because your body goes into "starvation mode". More than that--- you need to understand that when you do vigorous exercise you NEED to eat more than you think in order to recover and lose fat. Keep in mind that when you do 16 miles of walking, you might be burning 700 calories (just for the sake of conversation) during the exercise. That would bring your overall caloric intake for the day down to 1000, and then the calories required to recover from your exercise throughout the rest of the day brings it even lower. At that point, your caloric intake is far too low and you are firmly in starvation territory where your body will NOT burn fat the way you want. I know it sounds hard to justify but if you are exercising that long and burning lots of calories, you might have to bump your caloric intake up to something more like 2700. Eating at 1700 MIGHT work for you if you were not exercising.

      About the walking--- I would transition to riding a bike... stationary bike is ideal in the current heat but either works. Walking (even 50 miles) just isn't going to elevate your heartrate enough or burn calories quite the same way. One great way to lose fat when doing cardio is to include high intensity intervals, which isn't really possible with walking. On a bike, it's much easier to include. It might mean doing one REALLY fast, hard minute every 5 minutes or so, and then pedaling at a slower, manageable pace during those 5 minutes between intervals.

      Anyway, hope it works out for you

      that you should take your protein intake seriously and make sure you're getting ~1g protein per lb of your target body weight

        did you miss the part where he said AND miscalculating? It's a common beginner mistake to not include some things in their calorie tracking and then gasp how they aren't losing weight despite eating so little when in reality they are missing like 500 kcal worth of calories from tracking.

        How fat are you? You're gonna hit mini plateaus. I was 450 and when you start losing, you lose a lot real fast then it stops for a couple days cause your body needs to compose itself and grab onto some water cause you just pissed out a 5 gallon jug once you stopped abusing your body for a few days. Goes on like that for awhile until you're out of severe fat fucking gay weight levels.

              How do you plan on me measuring out a fucking egg, you dumb moron. It's in a shell, it's going to be relatively homogenous across all eggs. Spinach is low calorie to the point of being essentially insert, the volume of spinach needed to even matter is in the several gallons range, pork chops are, again, going to be relatively homogenous across the entirety of the diet as they are all approx 1/5-1/6 of a pound, and apples are, again, fucking apples, they only have a small window of variation to the point at which it is meaningless to look at.

      you look skinny fat like me, where you aren't obese and have most likely gotten away with certain shirts to look average. But if you are like me you've pretty much eat what ever believing you aren't getting fat because of it. It's a hard habit to break, but you will need to keep going for a LONG time before seeing results. You aren't gonna get the average/skinny body you might be looking for. I think our type either gets skinny fat or ripped and little in between.

Keep in mind that when you do 16 miles of walking, you might be burning 700 calories (just for the sake of conversation) during the exercise. That would bring your overall caloric intake for the day down to 1000, and then the calories required to recover from your exercise throughout the rest of the day brings it even lower. At that point, your caloric intake is far too low and you are firmly in starvation territory where your body will NOT burn fat the way you want. I know it sounds hard to justify but if you are exercising that long and burning lots of calories, you might have to bump your caloric intake up to something more like 2700. Eating at 1700 MIGHT work for you if you were not exercising.

    About the walking--- I would transition to riding a bike... stationary bike is ideal in the current heat but either works. Walking (even 50 miles) just isn't going to elevate your heartrate enough or burn calories quite the same way. One great way to lose fat when doing cardio is to include high intensity intervals, which isn't really possible with walking. On a bike, it's much easier to include. It might mean doing one REALLY fast, hard minute every 5 minutes or so, and then pedaling at a slower, manageable pace during those 5 minutes between intervals.

    Anyway, hope it works out for you

      5'8'' I walk for work so a bicycle is not really viable.

        Ok got it, so your 50mi/wk walking is at work. In that case I would follow some of the other anons' advice and add a simple strength training routine that you can do 3 or 4 days a week. 5 or 6 if you can swing it. Do you have access to a gym? If not there are other things you can do at home with pretty simple equipment you can get off amazon. An adjustable dumbbell set, over-the-door pullup bar, and resistance bands can set you up for a solid beginner's full upper body routine

          I have a barbell and some plates

          We're talking about someone who is exercising and clearly at a calorie deficit and still struggling. Unless OP is lying, there's clearly something wrong. See [...]

          It's not necessarily metabolic, but it's definitely worth investigating. And OP, [...] is exactly the sort of meme shit you shouldn't do. Go see a fucking doctor first. And you should notice that everyone, regardless of their opinion, is telling you to lift more. That is probably a sign that it's good advice.

          I have only done this for three weeks, perhaps time will help.

          OP do not listen to anyone in this thread suggesting you proactively dose with drugs or supplements like iodine as [...] suggested, follow what [...] says and get bloodwork done FIRST. You don't want to be fucking with your body chemistry unless you actually know there's something off, I'm amazed at how many people here are recommending self diagnosis by uneducated guesswork, followed by self-treatment with over the counter remedies. If you were hypothyroid, your doc could actually prescribe you drugs for that or even thyroid hormone. FYI [...] not every case of hypothyroidism is caused by iodine deficiency

          Bloodwork, got it.

            Three weeks of lifting should only be starting to make a difference. PRO-TIP: If you weren't sore as fuck the day after the first time you lifted, you aren't lifting enough.

                That's normal. As you work out, you'll get less sore after sessions.

            Nice. do you have bench rack, squatting rack, or power rack handy? You can go pretty far with just a barbell if you do the classic compound movement exercises

            >bench press for chest
            >bent over rows for back
            >pullups for back
            >overhead press for shoulders
            >close grip bench for triceps
            >skullcrushers/french press for triceps
            >curls for biceps
            >close grip chinups for biceps
            >squats for legs
            >deadlifts for legs/back

              I use a weighted vest with pushups for chest, the rack I have has an upper for squatting and a lower for rowing, I have no convenient way to do pullups.

                your best alternative to pushups is to mount the bar low, move the bench out of the way, and do inverted pullups. Photos of inverted pullups on google images will show you what I mean

                Thanks.
                My upper body is pretty shit, what would be the best way to work on building strenght. People talk about doing sets of 3x15, but I can barely do that with just the bar curling, much less OHP. On the other hand, I am not getting DOMs or anything, which makes me feel like I am not actually stressing my body enough. Is there some issue that I am not aware of that is keeping me from pushing though, or do I just need to keep doing the same weight untill it works.

                For supplements, creatine will help. Make sure you are serious about your protein intake.

                For building strength--- I would aim for 30 reps per exercise, ideally split into 3 sets of 10 reps. If you can only do a couple reps, that's fine. Do as many as you can and rest for a sec until you can continue, and keep doing reps till you eventually get to 30 total, however many sets it takes.

                15 reps is a bit excessive. 8-12 generally is a good target for strength and mass, and once you can get to 12 you should move up in weight. For training exclusively strength, even just 5x5 with high weight is a good target but you won't get as much in the way of hypertrophy, so don't be bummed if you are limited in how many reps you can do

    Cardio only burns fat for 30 minutes until it starts to eat away at your muscles.

      Another meme answer. So far, we have "Do not see a doctor, ingest this chemical instead" and "Don't exercise your body will eat your muscles." "Don't masturbate" guy must not be far behind.

      I doubt I have hit 4k calories in the last seven days, yesterday I had 3/4s of a pizza for about 3k cals, and a prepackaged meal for 400 cal, and that has been by far my highest input day.

          Today I ate 5 eggs for breakfast, two apples for midday carb, and a prepackage meal consisting of chicken breast and potato for ~ 530cal, this should put me at around 400+200+530=1130cal for the day, give or take. Also I had about 10 cheeseits from a friend, so maybe pump that up to 1250 or so.
