    When it comes to weight loss, I'd suggest aiming for a kcal deficit (usually 250 to 500 works for most). You don't have to have particular macro targets set to loose weight, but I'd focus on eating adequate protein and keeping fibre intake high since these two nutrients are important for weight loss.

    Hello there, Susan. Thanks a lot for your advice. Glad to see real specialists here. Btw, Susan, what is your opinion about liposuction? Is it worth it? Cause, you know, I’m a little bit confused because I don’t know if I actually need it. I mean, I have about 100 kilos of extra weight, and I’m not sure if I can get rid of it without Liposuction Toronto. That’s why I’d be really grateful for your guidance on it. That would greatly help me. Thanks in advance for your help. I’ll be waiting for your reply, Susan.

    There are lots of different religions out there. :D Set protein to your requirement (again lots of beliefs here, from 0.7 g/kg to 3.1 g/kg). Then keep fats as low as possible (you will be eating lots of your own fat anyway, there is little sense in adding more) – 10% of energy is reasonable. Some people will tell you to limit your deficit, but actually, if you are getting all micronutrients – you are good to go with any deficit. It is possible to get all micros from 1100-1200 Calories.
