Actually it does. All those overweight people out there who complain that they can't lose weight and only eat one meal a day, or very little food are doing it wrong. Eating boosts your metablolism, and beleive it or not, eating more (not enormous ammounts) will help you lose fat, as well as retain (or even gain) muscle. From your first post it seems youve got the right idea about this, but it seems your calorie intake is a little low.

You have to eat a good amount of fat/carbs/protein to keep your body happy. If you want to lose weight, eat a little below maintenance and spread it out so that you eat constantly through the day (~5-6 meals).

If you continue on this type of diet for a long period of time, I think your body will retaliate if you start eating more and you'll just gain a lot more weight again.

I swear you have 2 or 3 other threads with the same suggestions and comments...you seem to keep lowering your calorie intake each time.

yeah, i have to say your cals are way too low, you may have lost 25 pounds, but I'll bet most of that was muscle. By dropping your cals so drastically you're causeing your body to enter a bad state. You will be storing fat because your body will be in such an extreme state of catabolism, and it will be planning on getting ready for more time in the super reduced cal diet you're using. I'd say bring it up to at least 1700 cals per day, and include about 30-45 minutes of cardio 4 times per week

the greatest mistake people that they don't eat enough when they want to lose weight.

what would you do if you knew, that all stores are going to be closed for the next couple of months?

your body will do the same. if you don't feed it properly, it will start to store energy (fat), to save you.

also drink a lot of water

I forget the multiple for maintenance, but your body weight * 12 is a good start for a cutting diet.

40% protein/40% carbs/20% fat is a good split to do as well.

Add in cardio and lifting to the mix and you should do great.

You're going to lose muscle no matter what diet you seem to want to choose.

Too few calories, more protein, more carbs, can stand to add some fat too...need to get rid of the cheerios.

im not cuttin all carbs just bad carbs and why not have cheerios its in the morning so it cant hurt only 1 gram of sugar and 3 grams of fiber and its whole frain oats and i cant stand oatmeal so its the only way to go

plus i thought to build muscle you need 1.5 grams of protein per pund of body and i weigh 135*1 would equal 135 and im eating almost 176 grma of protein

If you only weigh 135 why are you cutting in the first place? How tall are you?
It's true that if you're going to eat something that you shouldn't then the earlier in the day the better, but you should just cut it altogether. Cheerios aren't even a good tasting cereal, it shouldn't be hard to stop eating them. Plain oatmeal tastes like ass, so to make it better throw in a scoop or two of chocolate protein powder, which would also help your problem of too few cals.
No one ever said cutting was fun, but if you're going to do it you're better off doing it right because then you won't have to do it for as long.
