Post-ERFL /Day 6

Post-refeed weigh in: 107.8lb (+1.8) / 49kg (+0.9)

I expected a higher number. Last time my post refeed weight was 2lbs higher than today's weight, with same refeed macros, so I'm definitely seeing progress. Maybe if I went straight to maintenance I would see a loss even today, but I felt the need to refuel before lifting heavy again.

Starting today I will be eating slightly below assumed "maintenance" to account for any metabolic reduction. Currently my maintenance calories are supposed to be around 1500 calories. I will be counting just calories and protein.

Daily diet will be something like:

1300-1400 calories
80-100g protein
Rest: mainly nuts, pb, veggetables, some fruit

Training: A slight variation of Lyle's GBR
I'll also maintain a daily cardio session for 1 hour at medium intensity

Post-ERFL/Day 7

Weigh in: 106.3(-1.5) lb/48.3kg(-0.7)

Yesterday's macros:

1300 calories, 110g protein
Low fat, carbs 80g

Already almost back to Post-ERFL weight. People are commenting that I look like I've lost a bunch of weight, so I'll take it I lost mostly fat!

However, I felt very cold yesterday all day long so this morning I measured my temperature: 35.7 C (96.3 F).

I didn't expect it to be so low given that prior to ERFL I spent 2 weeks eating at maintenance/above maintenance and barely worked out.
Also my refeed the other day was pretty big for me.

If refeed didn't help I guess I should go hard core maintenace instead of conservative, lol

Will adjust based on daily weigh ins, maybe I'm still losing some fat just like it happened in the study and my weight will stabilize. Fingers crossed

Have a good day everyone

6days Post-ERFL/Day 10

Weight seems to fluctuate between 106 and 107lb, with some water weight gained, indicating a loss of about 4lbs. My intake is roughly maintenance.

I don't know how I look right now but i feel leaner despite the typical women "problematic" areas, namely thighs, abs. I know it's not stubborn fat, it's just fat lol but I if I diet further down I'm going to look skeletal.

Next goal is lean muscle building before I consider dieting again.

Currently dealing with the depression/all the carbs thing here myself. Don't respond well to SSRIs. Allergic to Wellbutrin. Slept so so good on Trazodone, but gained 60 pounds taking it for a year.

Recently purchased tryptophan/l-tyrosine supplements to try because why not?

Good luck.
OMG I GAINED SO MUCH WEIGHT ON TRAZODONE. I'm so glad you said this I searched everywhere and couldn't find anything about it. I gained literally 20 pounds in four weeks when i started it in rehab. Now some was clearly because of the cafeteria and lack of drugs to supress appetite but holy heck it was hard to lose the weight on trazodone too IMO.... once i got on wellbutrin that helped a lot though

Thank you Lyle. This website is a game changer once you understand the mechanisms behind fat loss/muscle gain.

Spun my wheels for years prior to finding this site.

My body was for the first time not the problem, yet after the I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.I need to read the rules post.ty day I had today I came close to say "F* it lets have some food and sleep" more times than I can count. Being the final day is what kept me on track.

I did ERFL around this time in 2017 and I know exactly what you mean about the mental game. In all honesty I really wasn't that hungry and I didn't mind all the cardio. The whole thing was kinda fun, like a challenge/competition with myself to see what I could do.

But man oh man I cannot tell you how many times I walked to the refrigerator just to see what was in there without even thinking about it... it was like I just did it completely in a default mindset. Kinda like accidently making the turn you'd take to go to work when your mind is elsewhere.


Your results are very impressive for a female with such low bodyweight already. You look amazing comparatively in that final pic. I think this is a diet people should try if they really have it in them. You can make weeks worth of gains in 4 days. I wanna say I lost like 10 lbs from peak to trough in four days.... and 6-7 lbs by the end of the week with the regained water.

Ah I just found some info from my ERFL if anyone is thinking about trying this diet and wants a 2nd vouch for it. http://forums.lylemcdonald.com/showt...t=33294&page=2 The diet part isn't bad. Just don't dive into the walking if you aren't used to going for distance. And absolutely wear double pair of socks. That is 100% necessary.

Also, in the link below on page 5 and 6 there is a log of my experience on Extreme Rapid Fat Loss. I kinda want to give it another go now. Maybe i will... hmmmm!

Hey!

I actually enjoyed it, didn't find it that hard. I'm off Wellbutrin now so even if I wanted to do it again I don't know how easy/hard I would find it. 4 months later I still maintain at around 48kg/106lbs with relaxed training and diet. I think when you do something this extreme everything else seems piece of cake in comparison!
You should do it again if you think you need to, or not, lol. I get how you want to try extreme things just for the sake of it, I experiment a lot diet wise too even though I don't actually always need to.

Thanks for your comments, appreciated!
