Why does everybody put you down when you exercise and eat right

If you are not missing protein, you won't be losing fat too fast. Anything beyond 5-7 kg a month is too much. Usually I had the best results wrt fat loss, when I wasn't losing any weight at all, or no more than 2-3 kg.

Muscle weighs more than fat, hence if you are maintaining and adding some more (its hard, but possible), while tapping into fat reserves, you might lose no weight at all, despite the fact, that the guy in the mirror would look so much better.

Back to the question in the beginning, that really has a lot to do with the fact, that people are uncomfortable around those, who are improving themselves, instead of going with the flow and wading in mundane degeneracy of tv watching, beer chugging couch life, like the rest of the guys.

Losing fat is about 90% diet/10% exercise.

I don't know about that.... I basically lost 20 pounds of fat and put on 10 pounds of muscle over the past year, and didn't really make any dramatic changes to my diet except adding more fruits and veggies and maybe getting drunk less often. But I still eat 2 Chipotle burritos a week, along with fried foods, bacon etc.

I've just started lifting regularly again, maybe 3 times per week with some MILD cardio afterwards, or shooting hoops etc...

I do believe though, that cutting carbs is the most efficient way to lose weight, though I don't agree that they should be basically eliminated from a diet like paleos claim. If you're lifting heavy, you need at least a modicum of carbs (simple & complex) for recovery IMO in addition to protein and fats.

Guys, this thread is about making far-fetched excuses for my latest failure at getting in shape. Let's stay on topic, please.

They don't claim that.
