Yep! I have been listening to a lot of podcasts lately and I hear it from them about how some people have that adaptive metabolism. Women especially have a hard time losing weight. Dropping calories and their metabolism just adjusts to it and they won’t lose any weight. They have to start messing with the macros or drop calories even lower (which isn’t healthy and may wor k for a show but it’s not maintainable). Any long time coach has seen it. I agree that for the most part it is a calorie is a calorie but where that calorie comes from can change your NEAT and change things when it comes to losing bodyfat. Because everyone is different. If you kept your macros the same and lowered them you should lose bf. But if you change those macro ratios and lower the total calories it’s a guessing game. You might lose more than if u kept them the same you might lose less. Too many variables. Same with trying to add muscle. I can eat over 4000 calories of sugary, salty food and all I do is add fat. Eat clean it 3000 calories and I add muscle. Don’t have to force feed at all. Same thing you have seen.There are MANY factors they don't take into consideration. Hormones, food allergies/intolerance, time and frequency of meals, etc. Its a lot more complex than "calories in calories out" and you have to know how YOUR body reacts to different macros. I'm not special here. These guys are completely ignoring the tens of thousands of people losing weight and getting healthy eating double or triple the food on carnivore than they were on the standard american diet or even a "bodybuilding" diet. Do they really think all these people are simply miscalculating their calories? Some are Drs for fucks sake and more educated than 99% of the people on here when it comes to diet and nutrition.
If you like carbs and eating a pound of rice and potatoes per day works for your body (because you are also taking 5 grams of various drugs per week + 10ius of GH per day and have a great metabolism) Great! Do what works for your body. But don't tell others that will work for them or that it is "impossible" to lose or gain weight eating a certain way when there are many thousands of people doing it right in front of you. Seriously, these types of people are still stuck in the late 90's musclemag and FLEX bodybuilders diets...lol and their knowledge of diet and nutrition stopped completely with the dogma they "learned" in a college nutrition class 20 years ago. Instead of look at the obvious evidence that they are simple wrong they poke their fingers in their ears and yell "LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS!!!" at the top of their lungs. LMAO
Btw, impressive physique! Look like a BB to me. More impressive you can still do the martial arts with that physique. And hold onto that lean mass with all that physical activity! At just trt doses. Wow!
