I've always treated 3500 kcal = 1 pound of fat as gospel. So, if fat loss is lower, then how many kcal to loose 1 pound? I can wait for the article on this if need be.


Finally, Iím going to estimate weekly fat loss for each of the deficits as I go through. Iíll use the standard estimate of a 3500 calorie deficit equaling one pound of fat loss. Iíll only note that real-world fat loss will never actually achieve the estimated value, itís always a little bit lower.

How do you know, in a large deficit diet, when to include refeeds?, when fat loss slow down?, when you feel weak?.

And, as the diet progresses, the refeeds have to be more frequent?.

You read A Guide to Flexible Dieting and do what it says.

Hello Lyle, I have a very very low body temperature. I believe you have stated that this in turn means a lower maintenance calorie level due to slower metabolism. My question is, with such a low body temperature does this mean I dont need as much protein to prevent muscle loss. I weigh 180 and have been aiming for 1.5 x body weight. On a diet my maintenance is set at around 1550 calories. To get 270 grams of protein I have essentially solely been able to eat protein sources and my fish oil capsules to stay around 1550 calories. Thus, is the 1.5 an overkill due to the low body temp?

Best regards.

Why would lower body temperature lower protein requirements?
What are you doing to fix the low body temperature?

The doctors say it is just how my body is. And I was unsure if it would lower my protein requirement due to less of the protein being metabolized. Probably an unintelligent thought but I felt it beneficial to see your opinion on the matter at hand. Also as a side inquiry..would low body temperature lead to anything significant I should account for in regards to dieting and/or muscle building?

Best Regards

Look into Wilson's syndrome. Or find better doctors.

Thank you Lyle..I have one more inquiry for you. Unfortunately I will be undergoing a liver biopsy and the doctor has ordered ceasing of all weight training for 10 days due to a potential risk of internal bleeding. I would like to not lose the minimal muscle I have. What would you do diet wise during this? One could do a psmf approach to lose a little weight or aim for maintenace I suppose. If you were in my shoes how would you approach it?

Best Regards

Hi Lyle, didn't notice this before but the Moderate data isn't right.

Dieter Maintenance Calories Total Deficit Estimated Fat Loss
Female 2000 calories 400-500 calories 0.8-1 lb. per week.
Male 2700 calories 540-675 calories 1.1-3 lbs. per week

Should be:
Dieter Maintenance Calories Total Deficit Estimated Fat Loss
Female 2000 calories 400-500 calories 0.8-1 lb. per week.
Male 2700 calories 540-675 calories 1.1-1.3 lbs. per week

Thanks for the article.

Mike
