    In my experience people who crash diet and rapidly lose weight are more likely to binge and gain it all back just as quickly.

    Fucking :werd:

    I do NOT recommend losing weight "as quickly as possible yo". It's one of the biggest mistakes I've made in the limited time I've been lifting.

    if you make it time consuming and difficult, the diet probably won't last that long.

    Well, I didn't start actually lifting until around age 24 (maybe 23). Hell, I've only been BB benching for around 1 year :mamoru: all the teens on this board are so lucky...

    isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

    the slower you lose the weight the more likely you are gonna keep it off??


    i could be wrong :dunno:

    In general, slow and steady weight loss means you're adapting your habits and therefore have a better chance of keeping the weight off.

    However, a PSMF is a particular way of crash dieting that helps preserve LBM and can be used to great effect FOR A SHORT TERM PERIOD.

    it could be the fact that only extremely dedicated people to begin with do either PSMF or VLCD, so once the weight off, of course they'll keep it off.
