I hate to jack this thread, but I'm at a loss. Having trouble losing weight. I'm 6'4 296 lbs, and according to the calipers im around 30% body fat? I don't really look morbidly obese but doctor says I am. I'm only consuming 2000 calories. some weeks I lose 2-4 lbs, others i gain 1-3 so im usually at a stand still. I sometimes eat fast food in place of others food calories. I know it's bad, but I used to use weight this way :/
not sure if I should eat more or less..

If I were you, I would immediately increase my caloric intake. 2,000 calories a day is very little, especially for someone as big as you. You only need a slight deficit and then some patience and consistency to see results. At the beginning of the year, I was about 230 lbs and decided to go on a cut. I dropped my caloric intake to ~2,900 calories and started to lose 1 lbs a week. I did barely any cardio but went to the gym and hit the weights heavy and often. Last month at my competition, I weighed in at 199 lbs after a bit of a water cut.

Bottom line: At 300 lbs, you should be losing weight at a caloric intake much higher than 2,000 calories. If you are not, you need to check your calorie counting methods for accuracy or make sure you are following a proper resistance training and cardiovascular program.

You can try thermogenics. Go for hydroxycut, which helped me cut about 40 pounds in 3 months. Kinda unhealthy, but its really effective. I suggest, above all, go about 100-150 grams of carbs, try 100-200 grams of protein, and around 50 grams of fat. And try HIIT cardio. But most importantly, stick to whatever works, and be disciplined.

And it seems like the average person's go to move when their metabolism slows down is to further cut calories. This is the wrong move. This will slow down your metabolism more. This will make your body want to store fat more. Next thing you know, you'll be eating 1,000 calories a day, doing some form of exercise every day and not losing any weight.

I would pick a day and track all your food and see how many calories you are actually at for an average day and what your macro nutrient breakdown is like. Then go ahead and properly adjust from there.

It is a thermionic fat burning which makes warm and burn up more nutrient even for little exercises. That indicates, even if you do little or average exercise, you get outcome as if you are doing an extreme exercise. It inhibits you hunger and offer you with the power that you need during your exercise and other every day actions.
