There's no way this guy "fasted" for 382 days.
    No. Wasn't me.

    I believe he only calorie-fasted. I vaguely remember it and I believe he was given vitamins, electrolytes and water. You don't need "food" to live as long as you have ample stored bodyfat, but you do need water and electrolytes so you don't dehydrate, and possibly some micronutrient supplementation.

    You just debunked yourself.

    One group ate low protein. The other group ate high protein. The low carb group was high protein, the high carb group was not.

    Therefore, this entire study is completely useless. Protein is the macro that matters and your study has no protein control.

I sometimes feel nauseated at the smell of butter or if I eat more than a teaspoon of coconut oil at a time, or if I eat greasy meal (like roasted chicken with fat or pork fat) so your experience is exactly the opposite?
    Not too intrusive for me.
    I have a problem with my intracranial pressure, it gets WAY too high and makes me very sick(extreme headaches, vision problems, speech impairment, problems with balance, etc.). I have to take a medication to keep it somewhat under control to prevent damage and that also play a part in the severe lack of appetite.
    All of that means that I also cannot move much, so maybe eating so low cal isn't the worst thing ever right now... I lose weight very slowly even as calorically restricted as I am for a taller woman, but I'm well aware that some of it is bound to be muscle.

    I'm currently awaiting scheduling for a shunt surgery (in my head).
    Hopefully after recovery I'll be sorted out enough to move more.
    I miss doing so many things... I used to be pretty active. Kayaking and such regularly.

    Most of my actual meals are not fatty. But the issue is that I only eat once a day... a lot of steamed vegetables and broiled or grilled chicken and pork loin (leaner pork). Occasional beef. I add a tablespoon of butter to melt in the veggies to keep calories up a bit.
    I just can't eat much food.
    Sometimes the morning coffee takes and hour or so to drink.
    For a while, before I was adding cream and butter and wasn't paying any attention to calories at all, I was drastically under-eating many days... like 500-750 cal/day. I was very tired, sleeping way too much, and not losing weight at all.

    That was a review of 15 studies not one study... some of them did indeed have set macros.
    But go on believing whatever you like.
    To say that protein is the only macro that matters is just silly and you know it.

    I did the bulletproof coffee as part of IF. However the butter actually makes me hungrier around 10-10:30 opposed to pure coconut oil (2 tbps) which can hold me until 11-11:30. Theres no way i could make it until 12-2 PM unless i put as much as Dave Asprey does which is 7 tbps butter and 4 tbps coconut oil. Thats just sick lol.

    Thanks. That's exactly what this thread said.

    CICO is concrete. It's the methods of calculation that are wrong because they don't account for individual needs. Hence, experiment to find your TRUE TDEE instead of what some equation online says, or what Fitday says. Do this through consistency.

    If you would have read the thread instead of starting your own rant you would have realized this.

    I don't think your parents put you through an English comprehension class when you were a kid.

    I can play this game, too. If you don't have anything sensible to say, you may as well not say anything at all. Didn't your parents teach you that lesson?

    You quoted one small paragraph showing an outcome. That's what I read. I don't want to see a biased interpretation of 15 studies where some author cherrypicks information to suit their agenda. You're not going to find a study where protein is held constant that shows low carb has an advantage over low fat or isocaloric. You didn't provide that above.

    Fat and carbohydrate are energy macronutrients. Protein is not. That is why it is the only macro that matters. Your body doesn't care if you give it fat or carbs to run on as long as it's a healthy source with essential nutrition. Energy = energy.

    It's sort of sad that what should and could be a very informative and educational discussion has turned into personal attacks.
