re: Rapid fatloss diet support thread
Great work! Wanted to check in this thread see if any you guys still on it and how you baws are doin. This thing really helped jump start the fat loss for me personally and since ending the strict diet in beginning of July, I have been able to maintain the weight and get a lot more lean. At my leanest I've ever been muscle wise. I just try to eat right during the week and cheat all weekend for the most part.

Question: Do you eat the amount of meals that you plugged into the calculator or do you have more/fewer? I plugged in 3 but didnt know if you needed to drop to two etc.

meal timing is really not that big of a deal long term and when on a crash diet like this, its essentially useless.

I will say I find this diet much easier to stick to when using intermittent fasting.

re: Rapid fatloss diet support thread
That information was very helpful! Thank you both for responding. I've been looking into all of the options you mentioned.

I had a few other things I wanted to get some more experienced thoughts/opinions on:

-Do you find that you need to or get the best results when you do the 3 daily doses of the EC stack that Lyle recommends? I'm guessing it varies based on your tolerance to stimulants, but I wasn't sure how much the extra doses improved results in your experiences.

-My last diet involved intermittent fasting (I used a daily 8 hour feeding window). I'm pretty used to it, but I wasn't sure how safe it was with so few calories on RFL. Certain supplements in the morning in a fasted state also kind of worry me. Do you think combining the two dieting approaches would cause any issues/concerns on a daily basis?

-I was pretty sure that I read where he recommend the cheat meal be "after a workout?" I would think before makes more sense so you would have energy for a tough workout. On the chance that you agree, let's say I'm having my cheat meal Saturday night, would noon Sunday be an optimal time to get in a good workout and use that "cheat meal energy?" I will have fasted after the cheat meal, if that makes a difference.

-On the Refeeds I'm supposed to consume 3g of carbs per lb of LBM. That will have me getting 483.75g of carbs withing 900 - 1800 calories. What are some good foods to get me there? I used to cook big bowls of brown rice and lentils and thought that might work. I also love to just eat bread and rolls if that's a good option. What would be some some other smart (and hopefully tasty) choices?

I'm a Category 2 (215 lbs, 25% BF) and I'm looking forward to starting on Monday! I'm trying to get back to high school weight, 185.

Thank you all again for all of your help and your time!!

EC raises basil metabolic rate by about 10-20%. So more doses help but you will have to work up to that. Like any drug, take the minimum effective dose and in this case, the effective dose is the one that kills hunger. The extreme low calories will burn the fat.

Either is fine. Before will allow for a better workout strength wise and your schedule is fine for that. Post work out will allow the nutrients to be partitioned better.

whatever you want but try to stay with the starchy carbs like beans and rice and potatoes first.

Good luck, day 4 is usually the break over point for me where I get used to the restricted calories.

Day 2

Wide awake at 4 and should've gotten after it. Went back to sleep and slept through my alarm so I missed some morning exercise

Same meals as yesterday -
26oz of chicken
6oz of green beans
6oz of broccoli
1 scoop of ON whey
Fish oil/probiotics/digestive enzymes/fiber capsules
2 gallons of water

Either resting tonight or doing some ring work for upper body strength.


My last two attempts at RFL failed on day 2 so really need to be disciplined today.

Down 15 lbs in 16 days

Haven't followed it as well as I should have but I'm satisfied. Finding it easier to follow each day

I remember it being that way when I did it for a while in January, but the last 2-3 times I attempted it I gave into temptations on day 2. I'm feeling good today though. The rest should be smooth sailing until I leave for vacation next Wednesday.

Only deviation from the diet yesterday is that I had 4-5 lifesaver mints. Damn it.


Today is day 3 and I forgot my fricking lunch at home. I'm either going to skip lunch and eat all 26oz of chicken + egg whites tonight. Or run to rouses during my break and make a salad and pick up some zero calorie dressing.]


Down 2.5 pounds in 2 days. Hopefully I can continue this and lose about a little less than a pound per day before next Wednesday.
