  • Do you have a workout plan (intermediate) that I could buy? Also a nutrition plan? Thank you, you seem to be extremely knowledgeable.

  • I haven’t lost any weight in 12 weeks. Additionally, my measurements suggest that my body composition is stagnant as well; meaning that my weight isn’t being maintained by losing fat and gaining muscle. I’m eating at a 500 cal/day caloric deficit. This was working well for me until the past few months (and yes, I’ve been adjusting the calories as my weight decreased). I’ve tried cutting calories even further, but by mid week I’m so low energy (and hungry) that I can not see it as a long term plan.
    The title of this video suggested that it might offer some useful advice for someone in my predicament…it did not. Certainly in the past I’ve had periods of 1-3 weeks when the weight loss slowed down or stopped, but then picked back up. After being stuck for 12 weeks I was really hoping for something besides “stay the course”.

  • This was what I needed���� I do wonder, I’ve been at 1200 calories for almost 2 years(I know��) and have been trying to change it up and tone up more, that being said, will all of a sudden eating my maintenance of 1800 shock my body into having these extra calories stored as fat? If not I will definitely try next week to start this method!

  • i can see this being more effective basically because it’s less restrictive. the less restrictive, the more likely people are to stick to it

  • This may sound like a stupid question but can I ask how then does someone become very thin/anorexic (when they are eating an extreme low calorie diet) if the maintenance adapts wouldn’t weight loss stop?

  • Hi TB!! Is there any chance to meet you in Chiang Mai? Are you planing to visit somewhere in northeast? I live in KhonKaen, would be amazing to get to talk and train with you. By the way, have a good time in Thailand.

  • Thanks for saying “people that menstruate” you’re a great ally!!

    One question: I’ve been in a deficit for a while and have plateau At this point should I do a reverse diet until I hit my maintenance and stay there for a while and start the matador process or should I just start it right now?

  • I started tracking macros to know what my maintenance is, and started eating more protein and fat, rather than carbs and found out that even when I’m eating so much that I feel too full I’m still losing weight, its getting to 1200 calories a day, but I can’t physically eat more, i dont really undestand whats goiing on cuz before i would eat so little and gain, could it mean that my metabolism is improving?

  • Is it normal if my top speed 4 months ago was 28-29 seconds for 50m free short course, but now it’s 43 seconds? And my 50m speed for 400m went from 47 seconds to 50 seconds. Another thing is, it seems most people’s top speed and their long distance speed doesn’t differ so much. Any idea why mine is so drastic?

  • what calorie trackers do people use for these mini cut cycles? I’m struggling to find one that allows me to customise my calorie goals

  • The big problem for me (and a lot of others I would bet) is that I have no idea what my maintenance is and the amount I eat varies wildly day to day and week to week! So I have no starting point…. ☹

  • Hi there I have one more question to ask I had a hamstring muscle injury 2 years ago while stretching and that part was hit again few months ago now when I am progressing towards my full split that muscle sometime gets a little uneasy. Is that a sign that it is a permanent damage and I can never kick high or I am not warming up properly? Cause I don’t feel pain now on that muscles until I try to push my stretch.

  • I have been having this issue lately, my OMAD ends up including lots of bread and rice and I find myself so hungry again before bed time…����‍♀️. Thanks for another great video, I’ll do a lil switch up but right now I’m not so so worried about weight loss tho, I have actually surpass my goal and just sitting back enjoying a few more carbs lol…thanks again man, u always come through…��

  • Just the push i needed.
    Have been stuck in the plateau since 1.5 months now
    99% was about to give up today
    Now i know what to do.
    thanks man

  • Carlo!!! I love when you post!! ❤️ you’ve helped me conquer my plateau. Also, I just discovered my new favorite food!! Fage 5% Greek yogurt. It has a lot of fat I think! But I could eat it for every meal ��

  • Me: okay I’m gonna do this, and I can do more cardio on “maintenance weeks”

  • Just giving my 2cents….personally i have not been doing keto…i have been calorie counting and drinking coke zero…i personally lost 2.5 stone so far…i did hit a plataeu so i did a 40 hour fast as recommended in your other vids and its helped me….so thanks….

  • I’m sorry this was so confusing to me I’m so lost at what I should do. I want to lose my body fat because I’m “skinny fat” right now. I’m 5”8 145 lbs right now and around 27 percent body fat. I feel obese and just try so many things and always end in failure and disappointment:( it’s beyond frustrating. I am more than willing to do what will help me, but I’m so lost because I feel like I’ve tried so many lifestyle changes.

  • Hello! I’ve recently discovered your channel, and I’m really pleased I did. Everything you’ve said makes perfect sense, but I do have a question. Can I use the same sort of cycle for cardio in conjunction with this plan? Could I use cardio for two or three weeks during my calorie deficit to take the full advantage of fast fat loss and then use only weights for the week of maintenance? Or would it have to be two weeks of cardio and two weeks off or something else? Thanks for sharing such useful information—I’m excited to look through more of your channel!

  • I’ve been on a cut for 5 weeks now and lost a bit of weight but not as much as expected. I’d like to try this method but should I just start eating at maintenance for the next 10 days (around my next period) and the jump into a 21 day cut? Also can I calorie cycle throughout the week as long as i’m sure to keep within my average weekly calories? Thanks xo
