    Not sure of your situation but it does get like that.

    Don't know if your lifter in that your cutting, in which you may want to start bulking again.

    Relative, but you can't eat a lot less than 1500 cals, you could push cardio if you are adamant for more fat loss.

    Ideally, I'd trim down completely through eating. I get that may not necessarily be possible. I'd like to avoid doing cardio, not because I'm looking to cut corners, but because I'd want to be certain more fat loss can't be done through eating. If I do cardio for a while then I stop, then it's probable that unavoidable fat gain will occur. If you lose fat through disciplined eating, then it's easier to control if you have days where you break from that.

    What’s your current height and weight?

    How long have you been dieting for?

    Yes you are right the easiet calories to burn are the ones you don’t eat. But doing cardio will create a larger calorie deficit whilst eating the same amount of calories.

    Cardio or lack there of can’t be blamed for weight gain, that comes down again to eating.

    I'm' not going to give my details on BF, so that anonymous people can judge me!

    But reading your post, I get that maybe I'm still not satisfied I'm not complete control of my eating long term to make the most of the cardio.

    When you really drop into a fair deficit and have been for a while, then cardio can be very handy to drop the final body fat.

    Still not sure if you are looking for muscle gain but then when you go back into a bulk you won't just pile pounds of fat back on.

    Sorry. I'm certainly not looking to bulk up.

    Fwiw, down the track, I'd like to take up amateur kart or car racing. So everything is revolving around that.

    Also about eggs. They've become a tad boring. What do you guys do to spice them up a bit?

    Probably the least judgemental place on BF this board.

    Yep, none of the usual shitfights over club, politics, religion or where you live. The closest it gets to heated here is nutrition debates. And even those have calmed down markedly since everyone's got their own thread for how they want to eat.
