Great artcles Lyle!

If running a small deficit, such as 10-15%, do you think it is possible to wait longer before taking a diet break.

If I remember correctly, it is like 6-8 weeks on a moderate diet before taking a break. Can it be prolonged if the deficit is smaller?

Thank you.

great article

especially on the behavioral issues on the 10-15 deficit.

simply cutting out fatty milk and meat, etc to lean and sugary stuff to splendad food or low cal replacements can generate such deficit without changing much behavioral issues

unfortunately many people are impatient and want to either bulk or cut with fast results

I had a client years ago that ws drinking like 4 regular sodas per day. I had him simply replace those with water or diet soda and that alone got him losing nearly 2 lbs/week.

whether you create the deficit via diet or activity, the end result is basically the same. Note that this is absolutely not a correct assumption.
I know you said you'll elaborate in a later article, but I bring it up because i remember a study on the other forum which indicated that there is no difference between weight loss generated by exercise or by activity. unless you are referring to inadequate protein intake when it's generated through diet?

Correction: "This tends to allow much of the food flexibility and such that small deficit diets have as one of their cons"

should be pros

otherwise, fantastic article lyle.

edit: oops, one more: "Hopefully teh above will help you decide which is right for you."
