    The only thing I would add is that there is psychological benefit to fast results when your starting out, as the rush of excitement that comes from visible results can be quite rewarding, coupled with a tapering off period where you maintain that dramatic loss, can be quite emotionally satisfying

    Coach with another sensible take. Been on my diet for 3 months now with no desire for a "refeed" because I haven't been suffering at all. The best diet is one your stomach doesn't realize you're on. Also correct on needing to adjust your calorie goals as you lose weight. I wonder if that's why everyone says "the last five are the hardest to lose" Maybe because you haven't changed your caloric goals along with your changing body weight and therefore your deficit is getting smaller.

    Man Greg you are really scraping the bottom of the barrel here. You are having to nit pick just to try to ride one of Jeff's new videos it would appear. You are calling out a 167 calorie difference? That will NOT make a difference when dieting. That's very little and is not the difference between crash dieting and slow dieting. I am somewhere around 13-15% body fat and I recently cut with only a 350 calorie deficit. I refeed for 3 days every 12 days and had great results and surpassed my goal without hardy any muscle loss. Yet I still was fixated more on food than when eating at maintenance. That's just a reality of dieting. And are you really contradicting the wealth of research that proves metabolic adaption? Both upwards and downwards adaptation is very clear from the science. Anyways I think this is below you Greg and really feels silly.

    I started listening to coach Greg and have a slimmer body with more muscle. The nonsense from mike israetel had me stuffing my face like an idiot for an extra few ounces of muscle that came with pounds of fat. Lose the weight slowly, do your cardio, and lift harder than last time. 5’10 185 pounds 14% body fat.

    Hey greg nice video. However, I think that different people prefer different ways in dieting. Some people may prefer refeeds on the weekend and strict dieting on the week days.i prefer refeed on weekends with strict dieting on the week days, at the same time i dont feel tired while working out fasted on the week days. What’s your opinion on this Greg. Many thanks 🙏

    I totally agree with you. But there is a little problem with the person D diet - it's just harder to count calories in this more random and free eating behaviour style. So you have a risk to underestimate your net consumption. Unless you're quite experienced and good at feeling the amount of energy you consume

    Your advices are the best. Small deficit, greater gains over time. Best time period i achieved with a more desirable body weight. Dropping slowly my kg and i still have room for improvement, and i can do it becouse a feel great. I think now is more difficult for me to fall into a yo yo diet. Yep, I can keep this kind of "maintanance diet" for life. Pop corn FTW, also the veggies, great fillers. Thanks.

    No doubt a constant deficit with low side effects and healthy foods is the superior method. I am still taking maintenance periods after slow weight loss to make sure body set point adjusts, which seems to be a real thing.

  22. Patrick Soto

    Patrick SotoPrije 13 dana

    I eat at maintenance, I'm full all the time and I eat what I love but I still do cheat meals because I love them and I also need them sometimes. So it makes a lot of sense to have cheat meals if that makes you happier.

While eating the same since then. No cheat meals, but a tone of “snacks”, made out of the same things I eat as meals. Real snacks. I should start HRcharts-ing

    I was eating uniformly from August 2020 to December 2020, and lost 9kg. Since January-April 2021, I started eating out once a week, and it was basically a cheat day ruining the whole week's progress.... I would try to stay hungry throughout the week, in order to be able to annihilate all this progress on just that one day. Couldn't lose a single kilogram since January, back to eating uniformly now, lets see

    I do incorporate cheat days in my weight loss plan. That doesn’t mean I’m starving myself everyday and vindicate the frustration on the cheat days. However, for me cheat days work very effectively. For me personally, during fat loss, cheat days do work. I’m, however, not recommending u all to have cheat days.

    The more I perfected my diet, and the less I cheated, the less I had any desire to really cheat. For me, it came down to figuring out how many calories to eat, and keeping my calorie intake steady. I basically eat the same amount of calories a day. I think binging on a cheat day just screws things up. It gets you used to overeating. It also expands your stomach, which I think might cause you to feel hungrier.

    Since I've been following Greg and Will's and adopted some of their diet and training principles I've lost 16kg. I eat well most of the time, train harder than last time, feel amazing and don't feel like I am on a diet at all. I've got 5kg more to loose before I'm at my goal weight, then I'll have to up my calories to stay at that weight and I will have more trouble with that than eating like I currently do.

    Before greg- I use to diet down so hard to lose weight I rember eating just 1200 kcal for 3 weeks and i almost felt like am gonna pass out any second. After greg. I started enjoying life eating 2k + kcal did 1.20 hours moderate cardio started lifting heavy i saw result faster then any of my another approach to main gain. I might be not shredded as i was on 1200 kcal but i sure feel good about ny health mentally and seeing myself grow moto me to go gym and lift harder. I hate how jeff nipple over complicated things just to catch views sure hes smart and all but he just doing to get views and money. Thats the reason i stopped following Athleanx aswell he started spewing nonsense about how get size and never talked about how can you stabilize your diet, when i see kids like james, soosh, anothony i think they are are blessed to have people like greg they can learn so much in such a younger age and dont have face nonsense and loses important years of there life. I remember starting lifting all i had was VShred and some juiced up taking nonsese about how to “eat big to get big” lmfao.

    I have a Binge ED and having 1 day a week I can eat what I want helps a lot is every week consistent NO but im slowly making progress i follow coach gregs tips and keep certain foods out my house but it honestly leaves me with literally chicken and white hominy or potato's mix with some veggies which i am not a fan of all the time. I have 0 reason to buy his cook book due to the fact my number 1 binge food is anything related to the bread family so Regular ass bread, wraps, tortillas and any ingredient needed to make these foods. So I make a day where I can have these foods and enjoy my week so refeeds is needed since i cut all my other days really low just to have this one day so i can still lose a little weight that week.

    Hey Greg! Natural Bodybuilder here! I actually don't call anything a cheat meal. I call it Metabolic recovery. It is strictly personal for everyone, but for me I do 1-3 "CHEAT" days every 14-18 days. Let me explain : If I am on a caloric deficit of lets say 500 calories for 18 days - thats 9000 calories. However this is not a "small deficit". It is average, or for some people a big one. I sometimes do bigger deficits. When we do this our body gets drained on a lot of things that it needs to function properly and we affect our metabolism and ability to effectively lose weight (and predominantly fat). For this a cheat day or two on a lean bulk ( 100-300 calorie surplus is necessary ). It helps on the long run, especially if you are natural. Why do I call it a cheat day rather than cheat meal? Well, because what is a cheat meal? Chips? McDonalds? What if I eat 3 packages of potato chips (labaled as junk food) equal to ¬1600-1800 caliroes in total. Is it cheating if I finish the day on a deficit? What about 5 cheeseburgers (on average 310 calories each)? Do 1500 calories equal to cheating? I know that I can sure as hell do that and then pump up a few protein shakes to get high amount of protein and still be around maintenance level.

    Dieting gregs way with no cheats makes it impossible to have the foods you enjoy. He says you can have little cheat meals everyday but at what cost? They just make you hungrier than last time because of their caloric density. Not to mention it’s hard to have a cheat meal that’s will keep you 2500 calories in check. I can have a ice cream from Dairy Queen and it’ll run me 1200 lmaooo. Theres no way.
