Is anyone doing this? I hear it is great, but I really can't find any info online about it. I do know Chris Powell has a great book on it, but it is kinda pricy for me right now. Well, let me say I have found info online about it, but not what I am looking for. I am looking for like a total plan to do. Most of the ones I fnd online are weblinks, or suggested tips. I am a platau right now. I have lost a total of 136 pounds, and I am now fluctutating at the same place.

There is no metabolic advantage and the laws of thermodynamics still apply. Do it if you think it would be an easier way for you to lose. Sounds like a pain.

Congrats on the weight loss!
Love your food or risk failure. No quick fixes, this is a lifestyle change. No extremes are needed just consistency.

^^ This, you can't out think thermodynamics, ever. Do IIFYM and eat your carbs.
A pre planned diet is a recipe for failure, Do IIFYM and incorperate foods you enjoy into your daily intake.

Dietary fat =/= net fat gain, consuming more calories than you burn = net fat gain.

Feeling optimistic
Brilliant approach, I think. Long term life habits seems to be key - I've lost 32 lbs since coming here - then get in bad habits, and off I go again - but when I get back to it, modest reductions in ...
