Diet Break

into starvation mode (adaptive thermogenesis.) To counteract that diet breaks should be taken every 10-12 weeks and you calorie intake should match calories burned.

Starvation mode is a myth. You're not in stravation mode. That's not what adaptive thermogenesis is, and you won't get it for eating under TDEE for only 18 days.

Here's a good reference.

I know you say you're counting to the gram which is fine and if you're honest with the caloric totals being entered that's good too. Where you're mistaken is on your initial TDEE assessment. That is, your baseline is way lower than you originally estimated.

When using an online calculator, keep in mind that you're going to be getting an average and not necessarily what is required by your specific body. Additionally, most people overestimate their activity level, which is why you should definitely enter completely sedentary and go from there.

Diet Break
You almost certainly don't have that unless you've been diagnosed. How are you counting your calories? Are you actually being honest here? What's your daily TDEE and how did you calculate it?

Losing an average of 15 lbs a month
That's quite accelerated, and probably not sustainable long term. Keep on trucking but remember to do so carefully. Rapid weight loss always sounds great, but often times comes with severe sides and if you're not careful a rebound in weight later on.

Intermittent fasting

is it sustainable?

Yeah, sure, it's all about if you want to keep going with it. I typically do this when I'm cutting (I just skip breakfast entirely) and after a few days I no longer feel hunger in the mornings, and speeds up my morning prep time before work too. I get to sleep more which is nice.

If you do not wish to make this a lifestyle pattern- which I'm sure no one does

Again, personal choice. I personally like it. It's not sustainable for me personally because for six months of the year I'm actually trying to gain weight, and without multiple meal times I can't do that.

then when you have reached your goal weight and start eating 'normally' again, won't you gain it all back?

You only gain weight when you consume more calories than you expend. If when you switch back to 'normal' eating habits you're still matching or coming in under your TDEE, you won't gain any weight. IF simply helps you manage cravings.

And if you fast then you don't meet your RDI every second day which could lead to nutrient deficiencies...

Are you sure you understand IF? IF simply means that you're not eating for a portion of the day. It doesn't mean not hitting your RDI. It also doesn't imply you're not getting the appropriate macro or micronutrients you require.

You'd love the butter tart festivals in Canada. So delicious.
