    No. Cannot be true. You must have lied or forgotten about the cookies and doughnuts.

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

    When I hear the words "broken metabolism" I think of jimmy moore and his chronic delusions.

    LOL ++1 hate it when I got to the gym and a coach half my age who eats his own weight in food daily starts lecturing me about my food and how I can lose my weight ..... btw there are a few peeps on this forum do the same thing, guys in their early twenties, going round stating what they do and work for them as a gospel and thinking if it works for them it must work for EVERYONE else !!!

    A metabolism cannot be broken, it copes with a given input at all times. Either you are nice with it, or you challenge it. Of course, if you have a serious disease compromising the normal metabolic functions, that is another story.

    People like to think of themselves as special little snowflakes all too often, and think they are exempt from the rules. While undoubtedly some people do have real metabolic or hormone related problems, I imagine most of the detractors are just lazy/delusional. Like the obese person who walks for 10 minutes on a treadmill, treat themselves to an ice cream as a reward, then claim they aren't losing weight so it must be their genetics.

    One of the reasons I rarely come to this site anymore is the judgmental positions of the peeps you mention who tell me that my experience didn't happen and was likely just a result of my not moving enough and stuffing myself. It is arrogant.
    Starting Weight: 197.5
    Current Weight: 123
    Lost 75# eating low carb (20-40 g) and then MDA primal low carb. Tried many other options but only LC helped me lose weight and improve health. Now at a good weight, I find my body can tolerate a few more carbs but rarely go over 100 g.
