Do I need to deload while on the diet break?

I just started my full-diet break yesterday, and I am loving it. My question is that ever since I started I have been going to bed really early and sleeping 10 to 11 hours per night. Is this normal coming out of an 8 week UD2 cycle?

Definitely not normal. If you've been abusing stimulants while dieting and aren't using them now that may have something to do with it.

Ya I was using ECA stack, yohimbe, caffeine, synephrine, and all the other stimulants. Got good results, but I stopped using everything cold turkey.

My feeling (read this as 'a gut hunch based on no actual research') is that cyclical diets (of any sort) do tend to at least 'slow' some of the metabolic adaptations. But I'm not sure that they eliminate them completely. What they might do is allow people to go a bit longer before taking a full break.

Do they eliminate the need (psych or physiological) for the break completely? Maybe....
Lyle, this question was posed to you a few years ago, any new thoughts on it now? I ask because I was running a diet with 3 weekly refeeds, hunger wasn't much of an issue and maintaining weights in the gym was a breeze. Took a break after 6 weeks (in the middle of the break now) simply because I didn't want to go 12 straight weeks dieting.

Can I just say a huge thanks to Lyle for the massive resources of information, you don't know me from Adam but I've consumed a huge amount of your content in the last 5 months. It has been literally transformational.

I am on Day 2 of the Full Diet Break after 154 days straight deficit at around 20%. I had 140lbs to lose at the beginning and the 20% caloric deficit has been pretty easy

Or so I thought until yesterday. Why?

Well, I got a big boost from eating maintenance yesterday and today which came as a massive surprise. I feel so good I may not want to go back to deficit!! Haha, I will have to but man this feels good! Metabolism roaring along, big energy, drive and positive mental attitude just some of the results. Boy, am I hot too!

Two weeks then back into deficit but I suspect I'll be back on the diet break a lot sooner than 154 days!

Really appreciate your work
