AC What is the most counterintuitive tip you can give us for fat loss

LM: Probably has to do with refeeds (periods of deliberate carbohdyrate overfeeding where you break your diet): the leaner you get, the MORE often you need to break your diet to keep it moving forwards. In both The Rapid Fat Loss handbook and A Guide to Flexible Dieting, if you compare the recommendations for free meals, refeeds, or the full diet breaks, they are performed more frequently for leaner individuals. This is because someone trying to from 10% to 8% bodyfat, their body is fighting back much harder than the person going from 30% to 25%. So while someone at 30% bodyfat may only be refeeding once every 10 days, someone at 8% may be refeeding every 4th day to keep metabolism from shutting down too much. During one of my own most succesful diets, I was refeeding for 5 hours every other day towards the end.
