    Awesome read...I must admit, I zonked out for a second when things got really confusing, but got right back into it. I think your reply to that post really summed it up for me as i'm on a1,000 c/day diet. I can feel my body needing less calories after a week. But, that means I need to work harder to keep it off. Thanks!

    Excellent information, even in the TL sections. I'll have to come back and read in detail later.

    ETA: By the way the study reports adaptation at "Maintenance of a 10% or greater reduction in body weight in lean or obese individuals is accompanied by an approximate 20%-25% decline in 24-hour energy expenditure" And we are only using a 15% decline...
    Maybe I am confused by all the info you provided, but I thought that 10% to 15% was distilled out as actual impact on metabolic rate (actual versus expected).

    BTW, there is still my other question:
    In any of these studies you looked at, was there ever a point at which lowering consumption did not increase the deficit?
    I don't believe such a point exists.

    There is also the matter of likelihood - I don't think most people should expect the worst case scenario.

    ETA - BTW, I am one of those annoying people who did the drastic cut, lost nearly 2 pounds a week consistently for about 4 months, upped to lose slower a little while and then adjusted to maintenance after a 55 pound loss. I think I need some toning, but I do not "look like poo". I don't seem to have altered my metabolic rate significantly; calculators are pretty close on what I need to maintain.

    I'm on my 2nd cup of coffee and it still requires a re-read. So far I'm getting that it's not as easy as one would think to shrink oneself. ;)

    Note to self: Topics that have research and stuff and things need to be held off until afternoon reading.

    TL;DR Too early in the morning
