    It's both. The problem with a diet consisting primarily of processed foods is that they tend to be inordinately high in BOTH fats and carbs. And they aren't even the healthy fats, they are hydrogenated fats that clog your arteries and screw up your body.

    Eating a diet solely of prepared foods will put most people at a caloric intake that is so high that they can't possibly burn off all the calories unless they are running marathons....

    You can work out as much as your body can adapt. There is no hard time limit.



    I train 2-4 hours daily, rest on the weekends. been doing so for years.
    how much you can train depends on both your physiology and your goals.

    if you are young and your goal is endurance you should train a lot.

    if you are older and your goal is strength you should train less.

    endurance comes from training.

    muscle mass comes from steroids.

    strength comes from the central nervous system.

    Its the input vs. output that makes you fat or not. Period.




    You can cheat it by doing one of those lo carb diet, but you suffer for it and they don't last.
    Not true. Do your research.

    It is not as simple as calories in and calories out. It is the quality of the calories.

    Low carb diets are hard to stay on because we are so addicted to carbs and there are carbs in everything. HFCS is a particularly evil invention. But low carb diets are healthy and you can lose a lot of weight.

Which is part of the reason that so many poor people are overweight.
    the reason low income people are overweight is because they are stupid.

    stupid, fat and ugly goes hand in hand.

    I agree with everything you have said. The screwed up thing is that use of hydrogenated fats resulted from an attempt to reduce saturated fats which turn out to be fine for you. A diet of steak and veggies serves you better than a diet of processed foods.

    no sonny boy. you know jack ****.

    all these theories about carbs make you fat or fat makes you fat or whatever makes you far - are crap.

    this is all pseudoscience. twisting logic and selectively picking evidence to justify premediated conclusions.

    the only real scientific conclusion is that CALORIES make you fat.

    now some people may have success with low carb diets. some people may have success with low fat diets. it doesn't prove ****. in the end its not about which diet you pick its whether you have the discipline to stick to it.

    i follow a ballanced diet myself but compared to the diet of average ameircan swine you could call it a low carb diet. i mean i don't drink soda, don't eat bread or pasta or potatoes. but i don't necessarily avoid carbs completely - i just avoid excess carbs. just as i avoid excess fat ( no butter, mayo or sour cream ).

    We have guys losing 30-40-50lbs in three months-4 months, controlling just thier caloric intake, and training.


    Eating what the want, but accounting for it. You body will naturally crave higher quality foods, but "addiction to carbs" is a marketing phrase.



    Diets, ultimatley do not work, its a lifestyle change.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    Yep, you're low carbing it. I reduced calorie diet typically involves less carbs and healthy veggies...it's low carbing. That is how you are losing weight. You don't have to worry about the fat. Eat your butter, mayo, sour cream, ribeye steak - no worries. You get that ****, buddy?

    They are probably controlling carbs - no sodas, more veggies.
