Never do crash dieting

#### About participation in the comments of /r/nutrition
**Good** - it is grounded in science and includes citation of peer reviewed sources. Debate is a civil and respectful exchange focusing on actual science and avoids commentary about others
**Bad** - it utilizes generalizations, assumptions, infotainment sources, no sources, or complaints without specifics about agenda, bias, or funding. At best, these rise to an extremely weak basis for science based discussion. Also, off topic discussion
**Ugly** - (removal or ban territory) it involves attacks / antagonism / hostility towards individuals or groups, downvote complaining, trolling, crusading, shaming, refutation of all science, or claims that all research / science is a conspiracy

I second this. Losing weight is completely science, there is no magic involved.
yes agreed you have to Make a Commitment with your self
Also got to plan and record what methods/ results you want to use/ get. There’s a lot to it but it’s quite simple.
A lot of people try to confuse you so they can make you pay for the answers
Absolutlely start for making small goals after achievement reward your self. this will make you happy and also motivate you
3-5 days diet lol it will make you poop good once and its done
Yes its not healthy, its likely to fail, but this article is biased.
The whole muscle loss thing is such a bullshit... i lost weight and built muscle at the same time and so did a friend of mine with only bodyweight exercise.
the avarage person needs like 100g of protein to efficiently grow muscle, thats 400 calories.
I get it that your body will use muscle as energy source aswell, but we are very defined by our pre-civilized past in which food was "rare" or at least where there were big gaps between access of food.
We had to fight animals or search for berries and plants that allmost have no calories...
Yes some nuts and roots were nutrient rich but those also dont grow in massive amounts.
Losing muscle mass or not being able to build it on limited food intake would have let to very low chance of survival.
Loosing weight or cutting on food also increases testosterone, which counters the negatives a little bit aswell.
I personally do little weight loss jumps after which i hold my weight for 3-4 weeks and then do another jump...
I started 2 months ago and so far did two 5kg jumps, its not the world, but im def. happy with the result.
I dont really advertise doing it, but i think that people with a good amount of willpower can benefit from strict diets.
Btw. a veerrry important thing is to get alot of nutrients, if you lack energy from macros and also lack energy from micros youre gonna sleep all day...
i wanna clarify that i dont measure muscle mass, but i get stronger...
high reps are a little bit tougher, but that was the same for me when i did lowcarb/keto and hit the gym.
