    OP, I'm honestly not sure what you're trying to say at this point. Some of your posts seem to be saying that if you eat junk food you can't lose weight, but in other posts you seem to be saying that everyone will eat junk food occasionally and that's okay.

    All any of us are saying is that calories are the only thing that matters for weight loss, "junk food" is okay in the context of an otherwise balanced diet, but types of food eaten can affect satiety, body comp, and health.

    Edited to add: And now you're saying McDonalds is poison. I'm totally lost now.

    I don't particularly looking ke McDonald's so I don't eat it but there is no poison in their food.

    When i eat i dont intend to be hungry after an hour later when you eat mcds you do its not a fulfilling meal

    Every single possible combination of menu items at McDonald's leaves you hungry an hour later? That doesn't sound accurate to me.

    And what does that have to do with it being poison? When I eat popcorn, I am hungry an hour later. But that doesn't mean the popcorn is poison.

    McDonald's isn't food i it's poison

    So much show it caused that poor man to lose 8 pounds. His body had to work that hard to get rid of the poison. That's why so many are losing too much weight from McDonald's, like all the fitness gurus say, right?

    You can believe whatever you want poor man lost 8 pounds probably from running to the bathroom so many times you cant get a shaped body like that from eating mcda that man must have worked at 24 hours a day just to look like that

    Actually, I know exactly how that guy looked like that. No bathroom abnormalities involved. 24 hours a day of work would have been counterproductive too.

    It is easier to have inconsistent views when you don't have a sound framework to generate them.

    Depends not all have the same metabilism if your goal is to just lose weight then eat whatever suits you fit if you believe you can lose weight just by eating junk food... bread spaghetti exc... i dont think you will some people just eat whatever and they are still skinny... but are they healthy... who knows in order to lose weight on my point of view is eating many times a day small portions and avoiding the junk food... if you eat every now and then a cheeseburger or whatever food you crave doesnt mean all the hard work you have done will set you back changing eating habbits is hard this is why when you change your menue of list of food and then go back to your old eating habbits with no consequences you will put that weight back losing weight is the easy part but keeping it is the hard

    The idea that people can eat whatever they want from a high metabolism is severely overblown. The people that have truly high BMR's invariably have other health problems that are far more obvious than the BMR.
    For the most part, people who seem to have a high metabolism are either very active, or merely aren't being observed at the times they're eating far less to compensate.

    I should write a book cause I lost a lot of fat eating a lot of processed and fast food. I also put all my health markers into perfect or near perfect levels. Ya know why? Cause I hit my macros and micros, stay hydrated, get enough fiber...but then, I live a little. Sometimes that's cake, sometimes it's fast food. Sometimes it's both. I eat no less than 4 tootsie pops every day as well...

    I love being a unicorn...

    *blink*

    I would have thought if that were true that I'd not be losing weight and inches on the ridiculous amounts of cookies and cake I've been eating since going off the rails at Christmas. And yet, it's happening. I wonder how that could be?

    ETA: And I'm not suggesting people should eat like I've been - hence the 'going off the rails' bit.

    It's been a long time since I ate at McD but I don't recall being hungry an hour later.

    Women can lose weight while eating pasta and bread. Even older women like me.

    I ate bread and pasta when I was losing weight. I just logged the calories. Worked like a charm.

    There is no reason why bread and pasta should be avoided by women trying to lose weight.

    So I can't eat spaghetti without gaining weight because why? Because I have a vagina???

    News to me. Not about me having a vagina...

    Naw, I think it is the estrogen. You'll get to try spaghetti once you're menopausal.

    I ate a sandwich almost every day for lunch while I was losing.

    You're repeating a lot of old myths and lists from bad sources, trusting sources that confirm your existing beliefs while ignoring the personal experiences, studies, and science that others are offering.
