I follow a very simple IIFYM approach. I hit a minimum of 150g protein and 60g fat every day and stick with my kcal goal. Once I hit those minimums I fill up the rest randomly. Sometimes I dont eat carbs and enjoy ground beef and brussel sprouts, other days I eat sweet potatoes and lean beef. Also doing IF for convenience. Main products though are coconut oil, raw milk, grass fed beef and butter, veggies, sweet potatoes and white rice.

Progress since my last post

7-18 2309 90,0
7-19 2291 90,8 and 16,5% fat. (oh damn how come I don't drop weight at this amount of kcal and still no fat% gone, lets go to 2200 kcal)
7-20 2200 91,2
7-21 2207 90,8
7-22 2180 91,6
7-23 2327 90,4
7-24 2194 89,9

What do you guys think about my progress since I posted here last time? I feel pretty disappointed tbh. I mean I am 197lbs, train 3 times a week, and seems that fat loss still very slow or just not there at 2300/2200 kcal. I mean is there something wrong? Should I go keto or w/e to see if that works? I am a bit lost but maybe I am overthinking it. So if you guys have advice please let me know.

No. That's an old rule of thumb value but it's not that simple.

Did read your articles Lyle, thanks for that. I was at 11kcal/lbs and dropping 0.5lbs a week on average last 30 days. Realized I am not that special and if I want to lose 1lbs fat a week that I should just drop kcal a bit. Therefore 2000kcal a day from now on. Thanks again Lyle, I was overthinking it indeed.
