Working out fasted is indeed your best bet.  You could also look at doing some CT as well.  Ideal would be to work out fasted while wearing an ice vest as this forces you to burn a lot of fuel quicker.   You could also skip the... (more)

Eat a giant sweet potato bathed in butter... Seriously though eat some carbs!!! HF/LC can cause high levels of cortisol. Paleo is not low carb.

Eating healthy is the key to lose weight. Your work will cover the required exercise. If you still feel a morning brisk walk or running would help.

People are not the same. The BMR needs of everyone who is 5'9" an 175 lbs will be wildly different. The BMR that they present is an average. Best way to identify your caloric load is to eat when hungry and see whether you gain/loose weight. (more)
