Who here has experience with the Rapid Fat Loss Diet? I am getting married in 6 weeks, and would like to drop as much weight as possible before then. Yes, I realize I should have cleaned up my eating habits months ago and gone about this is a long-term dietary and lifestyle change, but I didn't. What I am looking for is twofold: (1) to drop weight honestly to look good in the wedding pictures that I'll be looking at for the rest of my life (or she leaves me for a thinner, cooler guy); and (2) to kick start a long term change in my eating habits by getting off to an encouraging start. My question is this: I've read RFL and I know that it has its own training section. I train primarily for strength and power at a private gym. I do not want to alter my training, just my diet. What I'm wondering, primarily, is whether I should up my calories and or fat on days when I'm doing heavy squats/deadlifts. My training is set up as 3 lifting days, full body workouts, with a short but intense conditioning finisher. They basically go: warm-up, plyometric movement, heavy compound lift, accessory lifts, finisher. Monday is bench, Wednesday is heavy squats and rack pulls, Friday is press. Particularly on Wednesday, I'm thinking 900 calories of lean chicken might not be enough to get me through the workout. Have any of you done this diet while lifting heavy (i.e., a 5X5 type workout). If so, did you modify it at all on heavy squat or deadlift days, or did you just stick to it by the book. If you stuck to it by the book, were you able to complete these heavy days satisfactorily? If you modified it, did you just add more calories on those days but stick to the diet guidelines of low fat no carbs other than green veggies? Did you add more fat as well on those days? Some carbs? Also, RFL says to avoid additionally cardio, particularly HIIT while on the diet. Did you stick to that rule as well? I've read the RFL forum, but worry that, since they are posting on the RFL forum, they might have bought into hype, so I'm looking for non-bias, real life experiences. Finally, I'm curious if people have successfully used this diet to jump-start a long term dietary change, or of they just used it for a crash diet and put the weight back on. Thank you: TL/DR version: Who has done the RFL diet and did you modify it at all on intense heavy squat/dl days?
