    Yeah, I'll get some up. Most of them on being an anti-depressant, anxiety & better sleep.

    When I'm relaxed and feeling good, food is furthest from my mind.

    Reason?.. Because I was trying to lean out, but situations arose where it set me back on my diet.
    (broke college student for example).
    At the moment, I switched to keto at 2000-2100cal
    Carb/protein/fat- 25g/175g/133g- 26g/183g/140g
    I'm at 201lbs and I'm 5'9"
    let me ask you this question..why did you get fat in the first place, what were you eating?

    ok lol, leaning out is a loose term what's your goal 5%, 9% or something in between because as you get leaner it gets much harder to get there...

    Yeah, I thought i'd give it a run for a bit alongside my own +/-3500kcal method and "see" which one is the most accurate.

    I mean having high and low carb / calorie days, some people like to decrease their fat / protein as they increase their carbs..
    Weight loss will obviously take longer than the other two methods but as long as you're not competing you might as well cut slower, you'll retain more strength + lbm

    If any of you guys have issues with this I'd love to hear it, you're already on a roll and I enjoy learning from people like yourselves.
