Time to get cut

Carbohydrates are a nonessential macronutrient. Problem is the standard American diet is outrageously high in carbs, and eating keto feels like punishment because everyone else in America is getting fatter by maxing on carbs every time they eat/drink.
It's all mental. The body will do what the mind tells it to. You can do it if you want to. A victim mentality will just enable you to stay overweight.
Sorry to rant, but I have very strong feelings on this. I've been there and still struggle with my fatness. I teach high school kids and most can't go 20 minutes without juice/chips/candy. I can't deal with victim mentality.

Well, more like lower carbs on off days. You will still lose fat at 100g but lower will happen faster. It's your world man, I just hate the fat guy I was and want to help. I think many people don't know why they're fat nor how to get un-fat. But you clearly grasp the concepts and practice well.
Apologies for the rant. That's just the tip of how a formerly bullied fat kid feels.

Okay, I don't BS numbers because it ain't gonna help me get lean. My mom made cookies and it f-Ed up my macros, especially protein. Calories are about right.
It is what it is. Pissed at my weak self but that's okay. Cookies will always be around when you've got kids and grandmas.

Just read through it. I'm enjoying this site (newb). So much support and advice on here its addicting to read this stuff. That leg routine was a good one. Even had some lunges in there. Men at my gym never want to get those lunges in.

Oh hey, I was thinking for myfitnesspal you can edit your macro goals so you're not always hi on fat and low on carbs. Have to be on the computer, go to goals-->edit goals-->customize. You can change your macros to whatever you like (I used 15%c 40%f and 45% p)
