Where did I insist my way is the only way? This entire thread is about personal experimentation - not relying on some TDEE number an equation gives you on a website. You're so hellbent on tearing me down you're not reading the context of anything I'm writing. Sit back, relax and take your emotions out of the equation. This is what was said:

4.) Focus on eating real, whole, unprocessed foods to support your metabolism as best as possible while providing proper nutrition while on a deficit. Don't focus on snake oil sales tactics like cold thermogenesis or drinking sticks of butter.
What, exactly, do you disagree with? And how is this "my way" when it's you specifically tailoring a plan for yourself?
And don't get mad at me because I dismissed your study. I specifically mentioned that the study must hold protein constant. You failed to provide that. I asked you for an apple and you gave me an orange, yet you're blaming me. The study was not controlled, therefore it's not worth reading since it proves nothing.

Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
