Hi all I’m passing my first exam this month of August. I’ve checked prometric seats and there’s no dates I’m comfortable with (they are too soon and I won’t be able to finish studying everything). What’s your best advice ? Should I take a seat regardless and do my best…

I check every Monday morning and there are usually a decent amount of changes, but you have to book way in advance at least a month to find anything ideal.

I started to dramatically reduce my calorie intake in hopes to lose weight. Like most, I gained almost 60 pounds during the pandemic. On top of that I hurt my back (herniated disc).

i’m at about 1500-1800 calories. I was usually around 3000 cal. I’m 6’4 and 275 pounds.

I have a fair amount of muscle under my fat. With reducing my calorie intake so much do I run a risk of losing my muscle before my fat?
