    In the past month I have lost 25lbs. My diet consist of working out 3-4 days a week. Staying under 1000 calories. And taking a weight loss supplement.

    Well Im what you guys would say a "Fat Bastard" Im 5'11 @ a whopping 298. I know its a lot of weight but some of it is muscle I used to work out a lot when i was younger and played sports. most people look at me and dont think I way more than 260. I have a typical lineman body in football. Im just wanting to drop the extra pounds and retain what muscle I do have and of course get ones I dont have...lol

    so you're under 1000 calories and wanting to maintain muscle? usually that doesn't work out.

    Yeah, thats way too fast. You're going to burn off muscle and totally crash your metabolism if you keep that up.

    well with that kinda of intake you're going to be losing muscle, and you may not be losing that much muscle right now, but the less fat you have on your body the more muscle you'll be burning.
    if you dont mind how much muscle you're losing right now and you just want to get skinny, then just keep doing what you're doing, sounds like you're losing pretty good heh.

    You're certainly going to need a hell of a lot more than 1000 cal esp. on the days you workout b/c you burn off 10cal/min doing rigorous exercises.

    Hell, I'm eating at least 1200 cal (more on workout days) and I only dropped 15lbs in 2 months :eek3: but you have a lot more fat and it will come off quicker, but it shouldn't be THAT damn quick.

    You're not eating enough or the right things esp. for breakfast or lunch. Those 2 meals should be your largest meals in terms of cal/fat/protein. Plus you should be including 2 more "snacks" inbetween breakfast/lunch and lunch/dinner.

    How much water are you drinking? You should be drinking "at least" 64oz per day.
    Are you taking any vitamins??

    ... in large part becuase you are only eating 1000 calories per day and burning off your muscle mass.

    Something to consider:

    There are 3500 calories in a pound of fat. You've lost 25 pounds in a month. You're about 2900 calories short of maintenance each day.

    That seems a little high, so let's estimate that 10 pounds of that 25 is actually water weight.

    15 * 3500 = 52,500 calories over a month, or 1750 per day. Even after accounting for lost water you're still not eating nearly enough.

    Keep in mind these numbers are very rough, there are lots of assumptions in this post.

    Edit: You should shoot for about 500 under maintenance.

    your posts about calories in < calories out and obviously pointless. 1800-2000 is fine, no need to post little comments. so stop posting.

    I never disagreed with Christophers on the calories he suggested, at least not directly. He said the human body is not a math problem, I presented a counterexample - the often-mentioned calories in < calories out statement.

    Now he obviously disagrees with my post that was a rough estimate of what this guy's body is like. Note that I specifically said it was a very rough estimate.

    So what's the deal - is there something fundamentally wrong with what I posted? Why not enlighten me, isn't that what this forum is for?
