Intermittent Energy Restriction

Newish study from Byrne, et. al. Full Clinical RCT below:

https://www.nature.com/articles/ijo2017206

Pretty cool - takes the 3 Day Re-feed *back to maintenance* every 7-11 days, and extends it to a 2 week block. So you do 2 weeks in a deficit, followed by 2 weeks at maintenance.

Deficit was 33%, so a guy with a 3000kcal maintenance, would drop to 2010 for 2 weeks, then back up to 3000 for 2 weeks - repeat.

Fat Mass loss difference was 12.34.8 vs 8.04.2 kg (~27lbs vs 17lbs), adherence was better, and 6 months post follow up adherence was better.

Interesting, and obviously requiring a lot of discipline for a 33% cut.

I don't find -1000kcals too crazy, but individual mileage may vary. At any rate, the principal still applies no matter what your deficit is, it'll just take longer for the same total loss.
