    It would be quite an interesting study. I wonder whether it's possible to get fat by jumping straight back up to maintenance calories after a restricted diet?

    As far as I understand, all the fat storage mechanisms become super sensitive when the body loses a significant amount of adipose tissue (and I've lost about 22lbs). Given this, I guess getting fat wouldn't be out of the question, though it seems unlikely from just maintenance calories (calculated using the Harris Benedict formula for the new weight).

    • how would you conduct that as a controlled study? there are so many variables it would be mind boggling to conduct... not to mention nobody would fund it

        I sure as hell wouldn't! I'm just musing really. I've often wondered about it and thought it would be an interesting thing to study.

        One of the big pitfalls of diets for many people seems to be regaining weight afterwards. Coupled with that seems to be a scarcity of information on how to come off diets and maintain fat loss if you've been very low calorie (at least I've seen little written about it).

              bro, I am SORRY. But give me a break ok... I get over 60 emails per day (sometimes near 100), over 30 PMs at various forums, moderate 4 forums, then I also need to do this thing called grad school research, then lifting, and also cooking all my food. That doesn't include phone calls from clients, or whatever writing i may be doing at the moment so yea, I miss a few questions... it wasn't a diss, give me some friggin' credit! I'm sorry man, but seriously, I'm only human, i'm not perfect.

              And yes my joints ache when dieting, when i got to 3% on calipers i had to drastically reduce weights b/c I could hardly balance them at all.

              glucosamine and cissus would be helpful

                A box with at least one button and a feeding mechanism for studying animal behaviour, usually rats and pigeons.

                • no, we make up a powdered diet and we give them a defined amount for breakfast (7 am) , then we let them eat ad libitum for 1 hour at lunch (1 pm) and dinner (6 pm) so it mimicks human eating patterns. At first they have trouble with it because rats usually just eat at night, but after about 4 days they adjust to it and are just fine with it

                  • Yeah, man I understand...I go to school full time, and work full time so I understand. I'll be more considerate, my fault man.

                    • no biggie, sorry if I was a bit harsh, just sometimes I don't think people understand how ridiculously busy I am. I really do try to answer all the questions I get... it's just really hard sometimes.

                      for example, when i got to the arnold this weekend for 3 days... when i get back i'll probably have to devote a full day just to answering emails & such

                      • Layne, what do you think of the cut diet? I know you were an author in the second edition. Thanks

                        • overall it is much different than what I do... that said I do think there is more than one way to skin a cat, I tend to not be as carb phobic as chuck, and while cutting carbs may be the best way to lose fat quickly, I prefer to keep all aspects of muscle retention, performance, how the diet makes you feel, etc in mind as well. That's what I love about Scivation though, they don't mind that my opinion doesn't nessecarily always agree with theirs and I think that's good for the company, makes me examine their points of view, and they examine my points of view.

                            • occasionally i'll have a beer or two. You know alcohol is actually quite good for you in small doses, it's just when you have 5 or more drinks you have precipitously bad effects

                                With my method you don`t have to worry about this EVER as I find an absolute energy value based on average behavior.
