    Friend of mine shared this with me. Of course it blows all conventional wisdom out of the water in regards to muscle loss and extreme calorie deficit. What do you all think?

    I read the report, but didn't listen

    I often do crazy calorie deficit, and train to oblivion, I've been doing it for quite some time
    I am under 5%BF and as a natty bb that's the only way for me to stay lean
    all year round.
    With that said, I can tell you my experience with this kind of diet,
    (also do IF)/training: first, it's hard as hell; second, it doesn't come problems-free.

    For me it's a very dangerous vicious circle, I diet to the point in which I look flat,
    and I do start to lose muscle, I get paranoid, I higher the calories for a couple of days.
    Then I go into crazy calorie deficit again, I get excited because I see roadmap vascularity,
    grainy muscles and I wanna see how far I can go, flat again, and so on..
    It's a psychological torture.

    The problems with such cal deficit are several tho', stims start to play a way too important
    role, libido is like "libiwhat? oh I remember that..", stomach gets super sensitive everytime
    you eat a bit more, and gains (if one is after it) are of course very slow. But, like I said,
    it's definitely effective if one wants to stay lean, and I mean very lean.
    Is it worth it? eh, I know if I could get over it a bit I'd do it..

    I have friends who tried to take this way as well, and I agree, if you're not extremely
    lean, you won't lose muscle, you won't lose muscle if you don't eat every three hours,
    you won't lose muscle if you stay in a normal calorie deficit for a bit.. At least this is what I
    noticed with everyone around me.

    Everyone is different of course, but overall human body tends to get used to everything,
    adapts, and changes in body comp don't happen overnight.
