    PSMF. If you can follow it you will succeed.

    In 1965 a man fasted for 382 days straight, losing 276lbs. He survived on supplements and his body fat. 5 years late he had only gained back about 16lbs.

    Granted, this is extreme. But it shows the resilience of the human metabolism and is a screaming argument against these instaglamour wannabe fitness influencers screaming about how you are "damaging your metabolism" have to "trick the body."

    There is no data that I'm aware of that measured the loss of LBM during the 382 days.

They could obviously lose a significant portion of weight by cutting out the 3rd daily large pizza but nope, right to 800 every time. Some of these folks are expected to eat no more than 800 calories for however long it takes to lose a few hundred pounds.

    I wonder where that number came from?

    My thinking is the Doc already knows these fat bastards have no self control so basically makes it an extreme cut too show them how serious they need to take it, and gage weather or not they are willing to actually do what it takes.

    Wow. I'll definitely do more research on PSMF. Thanks.
    If you don't draw first, you don't get to draw at all.

    I used PSMF successfully many times years ago. It was necessary to shed pounds every so often for me... I always put on muscle easily but fat equally. It’s a great tool, but takes a strong will. I never lost strength, and 3-4 weeks and I would lose that 10-15lbs. ECAs were a must for energy though.
