Try the 3 days military diet.

That's a scam. I can't tell if you're trolling or just completely uninformed.

Your TDEE decreases as you lose weight. 

You are not on a plateau. You are eating at maintenance now.

A plateau suggests that your weight is stagnant for no reason. There is a reason. Calories.


Weight loss is just energy in and energy out. If the energy going out goes down, you must put in less energy to lose weight.

Plateaus are not real. Making excuses for yourself, though, is very real.

If there is a will, there is a way... the best healthy short cut is go vegetarian ... instead of eating your food, drink it. Blend your fruits and veggies with protein powder together into a blender. Use lots of greens, kale.. parsley... .. snack on bell pepper... tomato... a head of lettuce... you got the idea... And get multi vitamin multi supplement pills. Switch to law carb... fat free dairy products... and do some light exercise ... or join Zumba classes .. it's a fun way to sweat the fat weight ... and drink water a lot... So, 3 smoothies a day, one of them with protein powder. Lots of water... low carbs and calories snacks... wave goodbye to processed food... eat 1 egg a day, add oatmeal flour to some of your smoothies like this one is so yummy ( ripe banana, 1/4 cup of oatmeal flour , 1 teaspoon of ground nut meg or cinnamon, and 1 cup of fat free milk or coconut water, and a handful of green leafy veggies of your choice... if you are going to invest in a blender, I recommend nutriblast ... it's a great to have. Good luck.

What a bunch of nonsense.

OP- the most feasible way to lose weight quickly would be to buy Lyle McDonald's Rapid Fat Loss Handbook and do what it says.

It's not for everybody, but if you can adhere to it, you can lose weight quickly while maintaining most of your LBM.

Favorite fatty food (dietary fat, not necessarily a food for fatties but that’s good too).

Young Calorie Counters 14 year old and cheat day :)? Oct 21 2016

Cheat days do not exist. They're just made up by people addicted to their meal plans.

Stop counting calories.

Don't have cheat days.

Don't drink either if it causes you to lose all self control.

Weight Loss Eating back calories to 1200 minimum for women... Oct 19 2016

Original Post by raphaelleislip:

Unless I eat less than 1000 calories I don't loose weight, no matter how active I am.  That's just how my body rolls.  I still don't lose much weight - usually 0.5 to 1 lb a week.  If I eat more than 1000 I just plateau.  I can get 56g protein, less than 50g fats and I skimp on the carbs because that's what will prevent me losing weight.  Carbs are supposed to be 130g, but I usually get around 100g or less.  It's what's working.  We all have different bodies.  I am middle aged woman so my body does not need a lot of energy.  If I'm feeling active and building muscle which I am then I don't see how 800-950 cals a day can be wrong...

Either you are 1 years old, comatose, or are inaccurate with your tracking. 800-950 calories is for infants.

You're eating more than you think you are.

I would get a food scale and double check every entry you make.

Counting calories will work if you get a food scale, are honest with your tracking, and adjust based on your weigh ins.

100% guaranteed.

I have found weighing my food to be invaluable. I was easily off by 500-700 calories a day before I got mine.

Weight Loss How to Rev Up My Metabolism After Weight Loss Oct 16 2016

Start eating at maintenance. Your body will make the needed metabolic adaptations on its own.

Lifting weights is a good idea though.

Carb blocker's don't do anything and raspberry ketones are a scam.

Do not believe the food entries on MFP. They are notoriously inaccurate. Double check everything.

Also, use a food scale. Do not rely on eyeballing portion sizes or measuring cups.

Plateaus are not real. Either you are eating too many calories or you need to wait for some water weight to drop.

Get a food scale if you don't already have one.

Original Post by veggiefitness:

I will have qualifications soon but I think we're going off-topic here haha. I'm more interested in seeing what problems people have or need help with. So then I know which direction to walk in :)

When you get properly certified, you'll have a better understanding of what issues vegetarians often have when it comes to diet and training.

You're asking people to answer questions that are already in the basic exam guides, which means you haven't read them yet.

Spend some time studying, pass a test, get an internship, and work with in real life people. Then you, perhaps, will be qualified to help people.
